Ristorante Be Quiet

Tucked away in a small alley and yet very central is the Be Quiet restaurant and lounge bar. The establishment serves tasteful and flavorful Italian fare. Pizza seems to be a standout in terms of popularity, but do try the seafood as well.


The cuisine in the Catania region is just like in the rest of Sicily – a delectable combination of Italian and Mediterranean cooking. Fish and seafood are the dominant ingredients, complemented by olive oil and wine from the mountains around Etna. One unusual ingredient that has made its way into a variety of dishes and condiments is the local pistachio (the ultimate Catanese pizza is one topped with cream cheese and grated pistachios). In the pasta department, try the local speciality Pasta alla Norma – a pasta dish cooked with aubergines, tomatoes, ricotta cheese and basil.
