  • Beautiful crater, ideal for those who are unable to climb high, there is no great ascent to see but just go a few meters after taking the car (there is a road).

  • It is the point of arrival for those who must make an ascent of Mount Etna. The only drawback: a bottle of water from 50 cl purchased in bars in the parking lot at €1.50. ?? OK that is full of tourists.

  • Pregnant, I couldn't do the "real" hiking to the Summit and surroundings. I had to settle for the small craters but I do not regret moving: it remains impressive, the colors are beautiful, different clearly visible flows and the lava of unusual sight. Positives: unusual landscape and which is worth a visit if you can go more high negatives: tourists are definitely pigs who leave their garbage, including toilet paper and tissues, visible to hundreds of meters on the lava flows / the world in high season / cold to expect with the wind, even if it's not so high!

  • Cold food, cold staff, more than expensive for too little food and awful toilet. Waited over 45 minutes to be served cold pasta and risotto, than other 30 minutes for cold tiny pieces of roasted meat. They didn't provide oil salt or pepper for the salad. Avoid going there for a meal if you have a chance. Bathroom was disgusting. No water coming out from the water tabs, no toilet paper, no hand paper towels, hand dryer worked but only with cold air. And it was way to dirty! Worse than old highway gas station toilets. They managed to kill and ruin a perfect day. Will never step foot there again.
  • The service was awful. We waited 40 minutes just to be able to get the card to order food. When we were ready to order we had to wait another 15 minutes to order. The waiter wasn't really nice to us we couldn't really order they looked at us as if we where really disgusting. Maybe he just didn't like us, the food was okay I wouldn't go there again because of the unfriendly service.
  • pistachio pasta is excellent. 3 pasta special provides a good contrast in tastes. when we were there in winter there was several dishes not available, but still a good selection of tasty food for a tourist mountain spot.
  • I had one of the best pasta alla norma over here. Fresh riccotta salata on top to complete the artwork and don't forget you are getting it at a few hundred meter from the Etna crater.
  • Nice market...
