Spent the day hiking up and back down nearby Mount Etna to watch a stage of the Giro d'Italia, by the time we got to Al Pero we were dishevelled, starving and exhausted. Despite this staff made us feel very welcome, went out of their way to explain the menu to us in English and keep us supplied with bread and drinks until our pizzas arrived.
I had one with mozzarella, proscuitto and pistachio cream - a recurring theme in Sicily - and one I love. It was gorgeous! And massive. So massive I could only manage half. Staff seemed concerned that I didn't like it, when I reassured them that I did, they thoughtfully offered to pack up our leftovers to take away with us. (Which were duly polished off later, after a short nap).
Can't praise these guys enough, well worth a visit!

Suggest you order only one plate. Portions are too big to manage to eat a starter too! Delicious tasty food. Highly recommend!

On new years day we spent some hours on Etna. And on our way back to Catania we entered Nicolosi to find a place for new years day lunch. Obviously we were unbook. We stumbled on this restaurant which enjoys a good parking. We asked for a table for 7. And were accommodated. The place is huge. They told us that we had to wait maybe 30 or 45 mins. That was reasonable. However the wait was much longer. The food took 2hrs 15 minutes to come. They were not prepared for the rush and only had three people serving and two in the kitchen ( could see through a side door ). Some tables left before the food arrived. We had nothing to lose so we stayed. In the meantime they served us some appiteizers which were enough to kill the wait (they charged for them) and had a bottle of prosecco too. When the food came, it resulted that the wait was rewarding. Food was great. Portions were enormous. And prices were reasonable too.
If it was not for the wait and the little bit of disorganisation in lack of persone, I would have awarded five stars.

We love this restaurant! The staff are attentive but not overly attentive and they are so kind. Mr. Giovanni, the owner, is always there to make sure everyone is having a wonderful experience. The food is wonderful too. You can find all the Sicilian favorites but some less common options too, and everything is wonderful quality. Highly recommend.
