Food is fine, but the Pizza's are really good. Prices are a bit above average, but it is normal if you take the location in consideration. Would recomend this place.

What seems like a dark alley in Catania, the Via S. Filomena, is actually a very trendy street that is lined, on both sides, with cafes and restaurants, each with having the wait staff parked outside to direct people to tables. We chose this cafe...More
