After strolling through the fish market, and being fish lovers, we thought this restaurant would be a good idea for lunch. On entering we had the distinct feeling that locals and foreigners are treated differently, with the latter not as welcome. Locals entering the restaurant after us were served before us whilst we were treated off-handedly by a smirking waiter,... More

The service was extremely slow and the food was terrible. We both ordered pasta with swordfish and eggplant. Only a few pieces tiny pieces of swordfish and 3 tiny pieces of eggplant. The bathroom was disgusting. Had to stand by the door to try and pay. Would never go back there.

Expected this to be a really good experience as this fish restaurant is in the heart of Catanias famous fish market. The fish we chose was served to us not in steaks but shredded. It was cooked I would say by someone with little experience and maybe a stand in for an evening. The door was constantly left open as... More

When the bill arrived, we noticed a difference of 2 Euro in the restaurants favor, item displayed on menu at 8 Euro, and charged at 10 euro ! When... More

Slap bang in the centre of the fish market, this place is adored by the locals. There were constant queues for tables when we visited. Well, if these fellahs can't produce fresh fish, no one can. If fish is your thing - make a visit . Good food, quick efficient service. It's fish HQ.

This is a wonderful restaurant in Catania. The Chef performed like an artist preparing an elaborate seafood platter. We were welcomed with Perseco and an appetizer. The mussel soup was wonderful as was everything. Highly recommended.

We arrived and the restaurant was full so we queued for about 20 minutes. We ordered some local wine €16 and water which arrived quite quickly but then waited a further 25 mins for a menu which only arrived after I asked the waiter repeatedly. The whole thing then went steadily down hill from there with other tables with locals... More
