The place is very nice and it is well designed. You feel very relax as it has all decorations in white. It is very tidy and it has a waterfall underneath the glass stairs, which makes this place really awesome. But one comes here to eat and rest assured that you won't be disappointed. We had maccaroni and pizzas. All... More

We had 4 different dishes... mine was the best fresh tuna I ever had.. pizza was also great and the pasta with cozze also delicious! The salad was a bit disappointing, but then again we didn't find a decent salad any of the places we dined at! Recommended for fish and pizza!

This was a surprise. Did not expect to find a very modern and cool restaurant in Nicolosi, the capital of Etna the Vulcano. Most people come here to hike or to ski. But on the other hand - why not here? It´s Sicily... The pizza was tasteful and the coffee made of good beans. All to a reasonable price. A... More

We were recommended another restaurant in the town but we were late returning from Mt. Etna. Hungry and searching for food at 4 pm in Sicily is not easy. This beautifully decorated 'wine bar' attracted our attention as it had a very modern decor and a wine shop / cava to die for. Amazing collection.. We did not expect much... More

This shop/ bar/ cafe/ bar/ restaurant is in the middle of Nicolosi on the corner where the AST buses stop. We went there for an early evening meal, straight off the bus when we were tired and hungry. It looks a bit flash from the outside- straw bales and a swing to sit on and a fish tank in the... More

We found this restaurant by accident and we were very satisfied. The meal was really good and unusual. I had chicken fillet with orange peel and eggplant with chocolate. It may sound weird, but was delicious! The restaurant decor is very elegant and tastefully. Service was also very friendly. I really would like to go there again and have a... More

Came here for a drink before dinner. Ended up sampling multiple local liquors and dessert wine. Great place for a drink and for knowledgible staff. Francesca was great and super experienced! Thank you.

We stumbled upon this restaurant and were so pleasantly surprised. The service was very good and the food delicious. We started with a caponata which was different from others we have had. It was sweeter with the addition of raisins and cocoa. Quite delicious. My husband had the pizza which was served very differently (it looked like a bowl) and... More
