This place was packed when we at there on a Sunday evening in July. Very large menu, including extensive seafood and meat selection. They definitely had some items I wasn't interest in trying - ostrich and horse, for example. Catania is wonderful, but not exactly packed with good, inexpensive restaurants to choose from, so this Trattoria is a real find.... More

After 5 days in Sicilia, we find the most remarkable restaurant. A street corner, spacious venue. Live music. The portions - huge. The prices, less than half of anywhere else. Great service.. .could have had more Minuti de Recupero between courses. Still, best find yet.

The place is very central, it got a well covered terrace, parking is easy on weekends. You can choose your fish and the choice is wide.The daily offer of the chef was a fresh pasta with pesto and mussels and it was really good. Service is fine, sometimes they got issues to deliver the order to the right table.

Trattoria Del Cavaiere Stumbled upon this gem on our first night in Catania... while their English was not fantastic, they tried and provided very good service. The food was fantastic! We had the pennette alla Norma which tasted as Nonna would make it as was the Farfalle alla Salmone! For Secondo we had the Polpette di carne Cavallo which was... More

Our hotel in Catania recommended this restaurant and booked us a table (advised, it gets very busy). The food is really lovely. They offer a really local and fresh buffet as a starter and then loads of choice of pasta, seafood and meat. The wine is also very good value. The local "plonk" is just 4 Euros for a litre... More

Exceptionally good food, fast service, ample choice of the main typical dishes of Catania, especially fish and meat. Recommended is the buffet starter, where you can choose yourself among over 20 different kinds of homemade dishes with aubergines, olives, anchovies, "supplì", croquettes and many more. Prices are unbeatable. Pastas at 4-5 euros, pastas with seafood 10-12 euros. Generous portions.
