We went to Barcaiolo on the recommendation of our tour guide who lives in Catania and were not disappointed. It has a lovely romantic location and the food was excellent and the portions prodigious. Service was quite friendly attentive. A lovely experience.

I enjoyed the mixed seafood dish so much that I went back and had it again. It was even better the second time and quite different as they use the days catch!
