If you want to taste simple but wonderful dishes, this is the place to be!
Very friendly staff, and the price is good.

This is one of the place where I ate one of the best and authentic seafood and fish cooked in the authentic Sicilian style. Can't ask for more! I strongly recommend to eat at the Gabbiano 2! Also a very good selection of Sicilian wines. The white wine is served well cooled. From starters to mains and desserts is a trip through the flavours and history of Sicily! And the bill at the end was average for such quality and plentiful meals. The place itself is nice and typically furnished for a seaside restaurant. It's small, so you need to book in advance. Average price per person is £30 drinks included. And you are eating fresh Mediterranean fish! Next time in Catania I know where to go for fresh seafood!

Not wanting to eat in my hotel, and wanting to sample genuine Sicilian cuisine, this restaurant was close by and an easy choice. Delicious food, good service, family run. What’s not to like?

Located in a small street adjacent to via Umberto I this trattoria is specialised in fish dishes and offer a wide choice at a very good price. The dishes are simple but delicious, and the staff are very efficient. They even offered us a complimentary fish dish which was a very nice touch.

As usual, generous portions are offered and the bill was very reasonable for a fish restaurant (they do not charge cover and you still get bruschetta, a generous basket of bread for free). I highly recommend.

The food here is of superb quality: stuffed and deep fried sardines, baby calamari, mussels in wine, caponata and the most delicious swordfish. I had the pasta a la vongole one evening and the mixed antipasti before that. The local wines are very reasonable priced and the waiters are charming and friendly. This is a small restaurant but perfectly formed!!
