Giardino di Bacco

Reviewed By YacchanAmarone - Singapore, Singapore

The restaurant is located near Ethna mountain and it took ten minutes to find this restaurant since the doors were closed. The dining hall was the garden and it was a bit dark to see the meals perfectly. However, my wife and myself agreed the meals were tasty and the staff kindly explain the recommendation the wine as well as meals. Worth of visiting.

Pasticceria Verona & Bonvegna

Reviewed By Klustie - Paris, France

I had the best cannoli here (ask for them if not shown in the shopwindow), also the little ricotta donuts ("piccoli bignè ricotta") were exquisite, and heard a friend from Catania saying they make the best "Babà" too. Prices are even cheaper than in the centre. Note that you can't seat at Verona&Bonvegna though, just take-away and enjoy their exquisite sweets elsewhere. They're not so close from the centre but really worth it.

Blu Panorama

Reviewed By SirenettaSiciliana - Caltanissetta, Italy

Una villa in stile Holliwoodiano, il bianco domina l'arredamento esterno, davvero un bel giardino. Nulla da da eccepire sulla bellezza della struttura.
Servizio ai tavoli nella norma.
Tuttavia, il cibo proprio non mi è piaciuto.
Mi spiace, probabilmente, leggendo le altre recensioni, mi viene da pensare che sia stato un caso ma difficilmente lascio una nota negativa, anzi preferisco non scriverla proprio.
Tuttavia, non vorrei mai che al mio matrimonio si mangiasse così.
Peccato...

This place is truly a hidden treasure in Catania! As soon as you walk inside, you feel like you are transformed into another world. From the chandeliers on the ceiling to the frosting on top of their cupcakes, Bisou creates an unforgettable experience like none other. The red velvet cupcakes are to die for!

Villa del Cedro

Reviewed By GorillaFoot - Hinckley, United Kingdom

We went here based on the reviews on T.A. and the fact that most of them were excellent and from Italians. It proved a good decision when 2 huge pizzas arrived. These were light though and fresh with generous ingredients. We couldn't finish them and it was no problem to have them prepared for next day's lunch which was a nice touch.
All in all a good pizza experience, friendly staff. It's also a good walk out of town so you can walk it off on the way back.

Gran Cafe Solaire

Reviewed By PobreHombre - Bristol

Our tour guide took us to this cafe for granita after a trip to Etna. We loved the ice cream and the view. When I tried to pay, they would not accept our money, claiming we had been sitting with 'their friend' and were therefore their guests. We had a lot of ice cream on our visit, and to not have to pay for the best was a real treat. We therefore recommend this place to everyone. Each flavour was delcious, but like pistachio especially.

Antonio offers what you think should be Sicilian trattorias. It's got tables outside, it offers typical dishes at reasonable price, and it is close to city center. Well known among the locals.

A Putia Do Calabrisi

Reviewed By Ron S - Calgary, Canada

After seeing that this was listed as the number four restaurant on TripAdvisor for Catania we walked there through a number of not very attractive streets. We were shocked when we arrived at the address and there was no sign or indication that there was an address at the location. We peered through a beaded opening into what appeared to be a restaurant and were soon met by a gentlemen who made it clear there was no food available for us. We are baffled and have concluded the positive reviews, all in the Italian language, we either part of an elaborate scam or a prank. Save yourself a trip and avoid this place.
