In a place like this, customer service is irrelevant. Nobody will do you any favours other than serve good food. If you like meat you should go here or one of the other similar places on via Plebiscito.

This place is cheap and nice.
The service is basic (plastic cups and paper towels), but effective.
With contained prices, one can get a huge dinner.
Good atmosphere, recommended.

I've never eaten Horse meat before and heard it was very popular in Catania. Achille was suggested by my B&B owner. Achille is a very simple place, the kind I would think twice to enter if I was not suggested to go. Service was very friendly and the meat was amazing! meat, salad, half liter wine, water, dessert and cafe... around 15 euros.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend from Catania as the place to go to try the cavallo or horse meat. I went there twice for lunch, the service is a bit basic but the prices are cheap so you should not expect 3 star treatment. The horse meat was fresh and excellent and they also have a buffet offering different starter dishes that were nice also.

Very basic with plastic cups for the wine but a good atmosphere and full of locals. The service deteriorated as it got busier and one of the types of sausage we ordered never appeared. It specialises in barbecued meat, especially horse but the spaghetti with clams and muscles was as good as anywhere. With 1.5 litres of wine, all the meat, salad, coffee and a pudding the bill came to 32 euros, no bill so could not check that it was accurate but certainly good value.
