We were in Catania for a couple of days at the end of our holiday.
The hotel where we stayed recommended this place and we were not disappointed.

We were given the option of dining inside or outside. We opted for alfresco and it only added to the Sicilian charm... especially when you look up to the windows and find you're below the neighbours washing lines!
We asked the waiter, Sal for his recommendations and he came back to the table with a selection of goodies you'd only find in your dreams.
Every single mouthful was divine.
There were 7 of us ranging from 2-62yrs old and we all left full and delighted with ourselves....
This place is an absolute MUST!!

A very tipical Italian restaurant. The food was wonderful lots of choices, ambiance was very warm and welcoming. The owner and staff very attentive, supplied a birthday cake and sang to me for my birthday. Recommend booking ahead as it is very popular.

Warm and intimate setting, run by "older" guys who know how to set a comfortable pace for a meal. Our waiter made useful suggestions and gladly explained the dishes.
The selections were excellent: pasta with pepperincino; pasta with mixed seafood, orange & fennel salad; grilled tuna smothered with onions in a vinager sauce. A sublime bottle off white wine.
The walls are covered with interesting and tasteful local arts and craft.

We had read the trip advisor led us to have high expectations but we were sadly disappointed. The wine selection and prices were good and the chef was nice enough to allow us to order a carprese salad off menu. Unfortunately our mains were some of the worst we have eaten in our 10day sicily trip. Thankfully we have been lucky and have not not yet had any awful experiences. Everything we at at Giglio Rosso was unusually salty, I had a spaghetti vongloe which had no sea flavour, just salty olive oil pasta with clams which didn't appear overly fresh. My partner had a seafood risotto, which was not like any Risotto we had ever had. It was made with long grain rice ao had none of the creaminess you expect from a risotto, not made with a seafood broth. All round wouldn't go back.
