Excellent sushi in a stylish decor

Oxidiana was a great break after 2 weeks of Sicilian food. It is a large modern restaurant boasting a nice decor. The menu is large and features dishes you won't find at your average Japanese place. The freshness of the fish was exceptional, you could feel it in both taste and texture. Service was... read more

This place is really nice! From the decor to the staff. At the top of this list is the owner William. My friends and I frequent this restaurant at least monthly and he has made sure that we felt welcomed from our very first visit. The drinks are amazing at this place. You can sit at the bar and try... More

I eat here about once a month and it has never disappointed, the specialty rolls are very good (I like the Cristal and the Catania) and the sashimi is fresh.

I love Oxidiana! Having lived in Japan for 5 years, I often find myself craving sushi and this is the only place in Sicily that I will eat at or recommend to others for sushi. I normally order sashimi or nigiri, so I can't speak to their rolls or other menu items. However, every time I have been, (which is... More

We started off with the very delightful Seaweed Salad. After that, I got a Spicy Tuna roll and the Shrimp Tempura roll. The Spicy Tuna roll was wonderful and fresh. I would have like a tad bit more tuna, but it was still exceptional for Catania. The Shrimp Tempura roll was different than I have had before, as the tempura... More

Luckily for me I have learnt to deal with reviews on trip advisor and to discern the meaningful ones from others, completely useless. I was there during the last week of june, for dinner. And I am glad I went despite -for example- the very bad review by AndrewNOLA73. I have experienced nothing like that and I wonder whether the... More

1. Extremely overpriced 2. Pretentiously rude 3. Food is below average at best 4. Painfully slow service + a 3 Euro per person "coberto" charge for that same awful service. In their favor, they did have nice decor.

My husband loves sushi and I do not. They have limited options for non-sushi eaters, but the teriyaki chicken was good. Definitely overpriced compared to the US, but this is Sicily. Husband enjoyed his sushi, but it wasn't mind blowing or anything.

the service is very bad and extremely slow (unless you are a firend of the owner). We got our food after hours of waiting. They brought the food on a bag and wanted us to pay for it full price even if the service was a sort of "take away". Rude personell. May be this restaurant will be good for... More

I try to make it to Oxidiana once a month, best sushi in Sicily and great atmosphere. I would recommend making a reservation since it is usually busy but the service is always great. I have been going here for 2 1/2 years and not had a bad meal once!
