‪Amazing beer!!!‬
לבד • יולי 2018
‪Lost my train and found this hidden little bar where I ordered a beer. The waitress asked if I wanted a Moretti or a Sicilian micro brew, and obviously I chose the latter. And what a brew!! I've had hundreds, probably more than a thousand different brews, and this is seriously one of the best I ever had. Incredibly balanced, full bodied, and oh so tasty! I simply love it, and I love this place! And Sicily. Right know it even feels like I love Catania.
And the beer has the most beautiful name: Ulysses. Brewed by the skillful Birrificio dell'etna!
WOW!!‬

‪Emotionally bereft from a challenging art exhibition (subject: mental hospitals) at Castello Ursino, my better half and I desired nothing save a quick feed and sweet oblivion. When Lino beckoned us over, we remained resolute to retire to our respective solipsisms.

Our resolve began to waver when faced with a) his familial charm and b) olives as big as the average child's face. Lino and Aurora evidently ran a bountiful ship, moored under the weight of Mount Etna's gastronomic offerings. Succumbing, we ordered two buckets of the resplendent vino rosso and a fistful of antipasti.

Whilst Aurora worked her magic (we're sure it was Lino's turn to wash up) we were regaled with tales of pistachio cream and the Catania of yesteryear. It was a delight. The aubergines tasted like home and the capers reminded me of everything that I have ever loved.

Every desire was catered for whilst we docked at Museo Crociferi. My love is vegan yet speaks Italian, whilst I eat fish and speak only murmurs of English. Lino described our tailor-made plates to us, if anything restricted by only using two tongues in order to do so.

As the night pushed on, Lino and Aurora positively hurled goods in our direction. Swordfish and bread, raw chocolate, almond wine. We felt objectified but happy. We could literally have stayed forever. But, like the tomatoes ripened by Etna's wayside, it was time to go to a vegan restaurant.

We bought jars of pistachio cream for everyone we love, or even vaguely like. Lino said they would go in our hand luggage, but we're quietly hoping we'll get told off and will have to gorge ourselves in departures.

If you're passing, don't pass. Museo Crociferi is the place to be if you like: wine, olives, hospitable couples, optimism, truth and beauty. Also it's really good value. Thanks Lino and Aurora - we had the best time.

‪Nice place for pre dinner drinks‬
ספט׳ 2015
‪We had a pre dinner here and the owner, Lino and his wife were very friendly. The place is located in one of the narrow road just around the corner from our hotel, Hotel Royal. Its on the way to go to Pizza Duomo. I highly recommend this place for pre dinner drinks. ‬

‪We spent three days in Catania from the 20th to 23rd September and were fortunate to stumble upon this quirky establishment in old Catania. On the first afternoon as we strolled past Lino engaged us in conversation, extolling the virtues of his wares which we duly sampled.. excellent local Sicilian beers and aperitivo.. delicious.. we returned on the next two days and were treated so well and made to feel as one of Lino and Aurora's friends.. they both were so welcoming and friendly and we enjoyed being shown the exhibits inside ,namely old maps, relics a a wide variety of Sicilian produce..most noteworthy was the wonderful couple, Lino and Aurora who were charming and made our stay memorable.. thankyou... well worth a vist or three

‪If you are ever in Catania you must visit Aurora at Museo Crociferi, Art and Chocolate. The antipasto was the best I have had in all of Sicily. Wonderfully delicate melanzane (egg plant), fermented if I am not mistaken, perhaps pickled , and artichoke, tomatoes, Sicilian olives and cheese. Accompanied by a small bowl of pesto and another of pickled mushroom and melanzane. Topped off with a generous sized glass of local Etna vino rosso. Divine.

Afterwards, Aurora brought me a little treat of delicious nougat and suggested a sweet wine. The wine came with some lovely Modican orange chocolate. Beautiful.

Finished off with a lovely espresso. My last night in Sicily was truly special.

The location is perfect, just a block from the hustle and bustle and noise of Catania, on via Crociferi, just up from chiesa San Benedetto. So quiet and peaceful. Aurora's classical music the only sounds you will hear. ‬

‪Really the souvenir shop to go before leaving the city, for the variety and the quality of the products. Excellent selection of wines too. Tiny place but the most historical part of the city.‬
