It's hard to find a ristorante that is not designed for maximum capacity and turnover. This ristorante, sitting on the corner of two alleys in 'eat street', appeared welcoming and just the thing for tasty Sicilian food beyond pizze & pasta. It is a seafood...More

Went to Palinuro with family and friends and couldn’t have been happier. The wine selection was perfect and the food; well simply put, the food could not have been better. Two of the people with me wanted a simple pasta as a primi dish and...More

The service was good, the mixed grill antipasto was average for relatively expensive price, my wife's seabream was excellent, but the restaurant's signature dish, the "fritura Palinuro" was horrible. Deep fried mixture of fish in batter.. inedible. This comes from someone who grew up on...More

We had a wonderful dinner, with a very appropriate guidance from the owner, great choice of wine, great coffee pannacotta. Fair prices for a good, welcoming restaurant! Look forward to come back!

We really enjoyed our dinner at Palinuro. The mussels were delicious, especially the sauce, which I dipped bread in. My husband had the roast, which included swordfish, shrimp, and calamari. He enjoyed it, especially the swordfish.

We went there twice: first time was very good, second time less so. Fish was fresh (we’re in a fishing town, so no excuses there!), but service seemed a bit spotty. A touch on the expensive side compared with other places in Catania. Worth going...More
