Review: In late October 2010 a friend and I have been on a bicycle trip over the lovely isle of Sicilia. She is a vegetarian with the tendency to be vegan. I was (still) a meat eater. It this was my very first - as well as very impressive - experience in a restaurant that is only offering vegan food. On 21st of October we arrived at Catania in the south of Sicilia. My friend had already checked out veggie restaurants on Happy Cow in before. The staff of our hotel recommended not to go to the restaurant, because it resides in a non-tourist area. Nevertheless we decided to check it out. A very familiar and lovely atmosphere was expecting us. It is a more or less small restaurant with simple furniture but very cosy interiors and decorations. There were several places to sit outside as well as inside. Everything was very nice. We decided to sit outside in the small garden together with Hugo - the restaurants mascot - hello Hugo! Since we were the first ones at that evening (Italians usually eat very late) the staff had and took a lot of time to explain us their dishes - mainly regional and typical Sicilian food. Since they cook only with totally fresh and locally available ingredients the dishes change on a daily basis. After we discussed the possibilities with the cook, we ordered a mixed plate with different ingredients following our wishes. I can tell you it was very delicious and that (as a sophisticated hobby cook) I never thought it would be possible to create that wonderful and perfect (vegan) food. Afterwards we had to order another plate. As desert we had a Tiramisu (highly recommendable) and a Mousse de Pistacchia, which was also very good. The prices were moderate, but on a normal level compared to other Sicilian restaurants. In total I can absolutely recommend you to go to this restaurant. It is already on my whishlist for my next trip to Sicilia :-)
