We visited this restaurant because we wanted experience straight from the fish market. We love seafood and fish markets. My husband had spaghetti with clams which were delicious! I had antipasti caldi which weren't all that delicious. Potatoes which were mixed with parts of "octopus" were half cooked (raw inside), whole marinated "octopus" was very chewy. It wasn't ever true... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor for this great recommendation - a very atmospheric little restaurant in the heart of a very lively and noisy fish market in Catania. The seafood you eat is virtually wriggling when it gets to your plate - super fresh! Delicious barbequed calamares with peppers and garlic followed by 2 huge oysters. Prices were reasonable. Saw the... More

A tiny place with maybe 1/2 a dozen tables inside and a couple upstairs. When you go inside what you see is fish and nothing but fish. Giovanni's family has had a fish market for many years and...

The fish market in Catania is a noisy attraction with very good products. At one of the market's corners we stumbled upon a little, simple looking restaurant. Much to our delight, the owner (one of three cooks behind the fish counter) prepared a fantastic dish of fresh, uncooked seafood and fish. Each item had its own dressing. The dish was... More

When the youngest of the Vittorio brothers decided to open a fishmonger with restaurant (well, a couple of tables for the time being, but he's expanding) in the middle of Catania's fish market, where the Vittorio family had sold fish for generation, the other brothers must have thought he was mad. And yet, little by little he's building a solid... More
