Friends introduced us to this place; first Chinese Restaurant we've been to since arriving here in Sicily. Food was pretty good; curry, fried rice, egg rolls, beef & broccoli, and other dishes...all were good with the exception of the wonton soup; wasn't crazy about it, but our friends were.

I didn't give it 5 stars because they don't have high chairs for kids and the place is extremely small so it was definitely a tight fit trying to sit comfortably without rubbing elbows with the people on the table next to us.

We were in need of a change up from all the pizza and pasta and went to Il Mondo for some Chinese food. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of service and reasonable prices. Portions were great and great variety. We had the duck and bamboo which was great. The servers even made us seasonal veggies off the menu when we asked them for it. Recommended if you're looking for Chinese in Catania!

We had a wonderful experience for lunch. The menu is quite extensive and varied and the choices are great. After being in Sicily for 4 years we are always looking for something different. It was fresh and well prepared. The service was quite good too.

Food not bad but really not great either. Most of our dishes were way too salty. Very cheap and friendly though.

This hotel was in a perfect location for us because we were staying at the NH Bellini, barely 5 minutes walk away. If you are staying further downtown then I'd either walk or take a taxi because street parking is scarce in this area.
Remember that you are in Italy where for some reason many people speak little or even no English, and this is no exception.

We arrived for dinner at 6.45 and were worried when we saw the sign on the door stating dinner from 7pm, however the door was open, we went in and were told it was OK to order.

The menu is in Italian AND English so it's easy to understand what is available. We ordered a vegetarian noodle dish and vegetable rice dish with 2 soft drinks.

The meals arrived in barely 10 minutes served piping hot. The rice dish was actually more like a risotto, unusual for a Chinese restaurant, but still very nice.

The total cost of EUR9.20 was very cheap by Italian standards, to which was added EUR2, presumably for a "cover charge", although we could see no mention of that on the menu.
Even EUR11.20 was great value for a good-sized meal by most measures.
