I strongly advice this trattoria for everyone who visits Catania. Wonderful seafood, warm frienship, reasonable prices. I made a restaurant list of 20 places before coming to Catania. After arrival, during our first day, I asked for information about my restaurant list, and local people adviced Paranza for fish. Antonio, one of the staff, welcomed us, we looked at the... More

Trattoria La Paranza would have all the conditions to be a real genuine fish restaurant, but it turned into half a disappointment for me. It should be made clear that you can eat fish and only fish at La Paranza. Antipasti are really excellent and in particular the rough fish is very fresh and delicate: certainly a plus.

The best place in Catania to spend a nice evening and eat really excellent food - fishes and sea food. The atmosphere and service are very good.
