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

We ate here last week,we ordered the fresh fish which we chose from the iced counter. It took them 45 mins to grill it and get it to our table,with a side order of fries. There were other diners there who had 2 courses while we waited.

We went for a lunch at paranza. It is easy to find and near the port of catania. The restaurant is typically sicilian.

We ordered mix fried seafood, linguine agli scampi (generous portione and lobsters! So flavorful yet a little bit salty), linguine al cartaccio (we all loved it!) and their wine isn't expensive, a bottle of white wine only cost 6€ and it's not bad! The owner was very hospitable, he even let us tried "ox eyes" and they were soo fresh!!!... More

A famaily style trattoria with fresh fish. You can choose yourself since the food awaits on an icebed, We had a tasty risotto di mare followed by a super fresh seabass accompanied by a nice mixed salad, all this with a bottle of nice and cheap local winde (grecanico). And a fine lemon sorbet to conclude this nice evening.

A big group of us came here for dinner and were not disappointed. Giuseppe put together a family-style menu for us and everything was delicious. The staff was very patient with our broken Italian and the food came out promptly. I recommend this restaurant to anyone and will be going back again.

A great place to sample the local cuisine and regional seafood specialities cooked to perfection. We found ourselves here through suggestions and reviews and were certainly not disappointed. We ate at a table outside, in the laneway, which was wonderful, though a little busy with the local traffic parking next to us. The night air made up for the noise,... More
