We have travelled a lot ... but to us, then the hospitality and friendliness of this B&B host really stands out. It was simply extraordinary. Extremely warm welcome with all kinds of advices of what to see and what to experience with only a single night in town. Nice local guidance on what to avoid in terms of parking and how to handle the local crowds etc. Simply excellent service. Rooms are also really nice. Spacious with very good facilities and especially the bathrooms are really nice Breakfast was really good. For a B&B with only limited number of rooms, then this was a lot more than we could have asked for. Excellent! In total then I believe this is the best B&B we have ever stayed at. It was truly a great experience! Only bad thing was that we only had one night here.

We had an amazing stay at the B&B Sciara Larmisi! Emmanuele was super welcoming. He did everything he could to help us and make us feel at home. He kindly helped us to find the bus for the airport and organized a breakfast for us even though we were leaving very early. The room was very beautiful and super clean. We highly recommend!!

Visited with my family for 2 nights during 10 night tour. What an amazing place. The host Emanuele is excellent. So polite and a wealth of knowledge. Our flight was moved to a different date due to Covid-19 but nothing was too much trouble. He allowed us to check in early and leave our luggage on check out. Breakfast was delicious and all freshly prepared daily. My daughter has a lactose intolerance and he even went out and bought her special milk. I cannot fault anything about this place. I would stay again tomorrow. Thank you Emanuele, you and your b+b are at an exceptional standard. We all hope to stay with you again when in Catania.

The bed and breakfast is right in the center of Catania, overlooking the Piazza Cutelli and just a few minutes away from the Piazza Duomo. The rooms are super nicely renovated and refurbished and really feature everything you could ask for in a home away from home, including conviniently an iron. Emanuele is an absolutely wonderful host who goes out of his way to make sure his guests have a great time. The breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Piazza Cutelli is worth staying in itself for at Sciara Larmisi.

Emmanuelle is a wonderful host and very accommodating. We had made a mistake and booked the wrong Sunday in February. Nevertheless, when we arrived on the wrong day, he went out of his way (during his day off) to arrive promptly at the B&B, quickly make up an available room for us, and help us cancel the wrong reservation. He recommended a lovely restaurant for dinner. In the morning, he offered us free coffee in the bar right below the B&B on the piazza. The rooms are beautiful - modern and stylish in a old building. The room we stayed in (on the corner) is a bit noisy as it overlooks a piazza, but all other rooms seem to look on to an internal courtyard and are therefore quieter. Would recommended this lovely B&B.
