Let me start by first saying that even if you have to wait here for a table it is worth it! A restaurant packed with people show that the food is GOOD! When I was there the local people did not mind to wait for more than an hour for a table. That again say something about this place! The... More

Although technically on the water you can only see a view of the docking area and it is not pretty. Service was slow but the food was good.

You can expect good food but if you have no booking be prepared to wait. We went on a Wednesday night and had to wait almost 1 hour and the process is chaotic. We were told 20-25 minutes, had to wait standing in a lousy spot and eventually we got a super small table for 4. They ran out of... More

We had lunch in this restaurant, on a sunday, attracted by the nice view of the little harbour ans the sunny terrace. All the food looked good. Ours was good, but not exceptional, by far. The service however was terrible. After having waited for 15 minutes for a kid's meal, we asked, and the waiter said that this meal was... More

Take a pizza with a bottle of beer near by the sea in the evening is a perfect combination of odors, flavours and tastes that delighted all of us.

Nice & cosy restaurant in a special sicilian neighbourhood which you will love at first sight. Food is fantastic, and you should ask for their advice, it will be brilliant I'm sure. I've been there in the middle of European soccer championship, so the atmosphere was fantastic and inspiring. Wines are very good, try their own ones and almond wine... More

Sicilian and not sicilian food revised. The staff is a bit slow but what you find in your table will always surprise you. Great collection of local wines.

We went to the Cutilisci around 20:45, we had a table outside on a little charming square. The service was very fast and efficient with friendly staff. The food (pizza, beef and bruschettas) were excellent, with great tasty flavours from quality local products. The wine was also very good and all of that for a reasonable price (about 9,5 EUR...

I am a real restaurant goer and have experimented almost all restaurants in Catania and Cutilisci is definitely my first choice. It is definitely crowded in summer months ( everybody would like to eat there) so sometimes you might need to wait for the table or your dish if you come late but the food is definitely worth the wait....
