I really wished to tell this to the restaurant manager at the spot but could not do it because of language difficulties. I am generally not fault-finder especially on holidays but what you did to us was just NOT ok... :( My fiancé and I celebrated our engagement in the beautiful Catania and when exploring the lovely city we wished...

We had the most amazing meal here on our last night in catania. Its out of the city centre but worth visiting. The food was fresh and full of flavour. We were blown away by the baked spaghetti and seafood. Yum!

I went there for launch with my wife and two kids. Went there with no booking and we were very welcomed by the restaurant manager. We ordered a pasta as starter and fish as a main course meal. Everything was perfect. Highly recommended!

In Catania city it's easier to find a good meat restaurant than a good fish restaurant, so I think that "la paranza" is the unique good fish restaurant in the city. Try it!

It is a really friendly place, you can really feel that the customer is the first. Around 9 p.m. it was full with not just tourists, but locals as well. The portions are reasonable and the dishes are VERY VERY delicious!!! Also the wine is excellent and the dessert brilliant. We will go back... tomorrow :)

Very good place to try typical Sicilian food. Medium range prices and little servings (don't expect that only pasta will be full meal, even for people who don't eat too much..).

On our recent one-day visit to Catania my wife and I decided to try this restaurant, on the basis of the reviews on Trip Advisor. We are very pleased that we did so. The food was excellent. We had the most tasty seafood linguine as a first plate and then my wife had swordfish involtini and I had stuffed squid... More
