Having been to Catania before and eaten at this wonderful restaurant I decided that I wanted to have a meal here on my 50th Birthday. I wasn't disappointed as the meal was lovely. We shared a starter platter between us and enjoyed the variety of different textures and foods presented to us from home made houmous and spring rolls to soya patties that were delicate and moreish. My husband then had setain and fried potatoes with a mixed salad whilst I plumped for a potato based dish with leeks and tomatoes. I left enough room for a chocolate and orange dessert, which finished the meal off in style. We also shared a bottle of local red wine, which was smooth and easy to drink. Our waitress was knowledgeable and polite and the whole meal was just over 60 euros. This won't be the last time we eat here and it is highly recommended if you are in Catania.

From start to finish our dining expereince here was absolute perfection. We travelled for over an hour and a half to dine here and it was well worth it. Being vegan or veggie in Sicily is not always easy so finding this little gem of a place made the trip worthwhile.

The service from our server (who is the manager) was world class. He was extremely attentive and made us feel very welcome.

The food was delicious and I would highly reccomend this place to anyone who is in Catania.

As a vegan nothing makes me happier than finding vegan restaurants but this one wasnt convincing.

The food was mostly good, although lacked salt.

The worse thing was the slow and passive service. They forgot our orders and we waited for almost an hour for second dishes.

After two weeks travelling round Sicily we were delighted to find this vegan restaurant. Oh how we needed the veggie goodness. We got our hotel to book us a table and we arrived at 8pm when they were just about open. There was guy there who spoke good English and we enjoyed everything we ordered. The menu is in Italian so use Google translate. There is a lovely garden out the back and they have bio mozzie spray that you can use to keep those critters at bay. The garden has tree growing out of the wall and concreate floor and is lit by candles. All the staff were lovely and helped us book a taxi back to our hotel. We had the mixed antipasto, which we devoured in minutes. We also ordered two other dishes and a yogurt cake. We left full and happy.
