A super meal on a gloriously sunny day , the antipasti fish meze is almost a meal in itself we choose the fish for our main course ourselves which was beautifully cooked would definitely recommend. Visited on the 534 bus from Catania for 2 euros return

Authentic Sicilian restaurant in a nice little town. Mostly seafood on the menu so if you like seafood I would recommend the antipasto sampler to start.

As we came to Acitrezza in day of liberation there was a queue to enter, we've waited about half an hour inspite of promised 10 minutes, but it worth it.

I've been coming to Covo Marino for about 3 years and it's definately my favorite fish place in eastern Sicily.

For entree I asked the head waiter to choose a piece of fish and have the chef prepare to his liking. It was a white fish served in a broth with fresh tomatoes. I loved... More
