I ate here with friends the first full day of a 2 week stay. We asked the taxi driver for a fish restaurant and this is where he took us, we'd never have found this place on our own. At 8pm we were the first to arrive, slightly worried as it was so quiet and were taken out to a... More

The best restaurant in Catania and we tried many. The fish was amazing and antipasto so good. Service was impeccable. Waiters smiled always and timely. A great experience.

Not too bad service also, nice, chilled place on a hot day. Definitely recommend tuna steaks and strawberries with lemon sorbet.

Like in the title - good place to eat fishes and frutti di mare. Up there is a terace with a view on duomo.

This was the first place we ate in Sicily after checking into our hotel, and we were determined to return there before leaving, which we did a week later. A quiet courtyard upstairs took us out of the noise and heat of Catania in July; the waiter was fantastic, unobtrusively guiding us through both menu and wine list to some... More

I tried pasta with sea fruit and it was delicious. The surrounding is amazing since on the balcony you're sitting right next to the Duomo. The waiter was attentive and nice, I would have preferred he replied to me in Italian since I was also talking in Italian.

I was in Catania for business and this is the place the two local Italians took me for dinner. It's at the top of their list of places to go. We started with the seafood soup. It's not really soup. It was a lot of muscles and clams in a sauce with some bread. It was really good and the... More

Since last time I had dinner there, service has decreased. Bottle of water was served already opened and order took more time than other times.
