We came here because of a recommendation of a bar we had some drinks. When we arrived at the restaurant we saw the restaurant was filled with locals. We were seated by a nice waiter whom helped us very well. It is a perfect restaurant to get some local fish dishes and absolutely a recommendation. It might be a bit... More

Atmosphere - small but at the same time spacious and really cozy restaurant, simplicity and accessibility when communicating with staff, professional waiters! While seeing the fish is being cut on my plate, I received not only convenience, but also the aesthetic and visual pleasure! The way how the staff presents the menu is amazing, it is better not to go... More

We asked a guy who owns a bar and he suggested this restaurant, not far from teatro Bellini. Great range of seafood . Clearly very popular With the local people and not yet found by many tourists. I would recommend it.

Excellent wine and very well prepared and presented food, large portions, too. We have two octopus salad and tuna carpaccio and pasta with seafood. The tuna carpaccio was a bit too marinated leaving little... More

We discovered this nice place by chance. Not far from Piazza del Duomo still you can park your car easily nearby. Good fish and seafood and extraordinary pasta!

What a good surprise! Sea food was perfect. We ordered a but of everything in this place but the sea food was excellent...from the marinated starters, the mussels, the fishes and shrimps. All fresh, with the right combination of spices and well served. Definitely one of the very good options in this area of the city.

One of the best places in Catania. Owned and managed by fantastic family. Everything is absolutely fresh, just like right out of the sea. Frito Misto is a must! Tiramisu, sorbet and other desserts are delicious. Wine list which consist of mostly wines from local - famous and infamous producers is very, very good. Service is better than anywhere else....
