“Wonderful restaurant near the Castle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

A chance finding for lunch. Very friendly and helpful staff with fantastic tasty food and wine. Our waiter was very helpful in guiding us on local Sicilian specialties. Shame we didn't have space to try more !

“Best food and service ever !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We are tourist from Poland and we had a pleasure to dine at "Da Antonio". Food was unforgetable, service proffesional and prices really good. I recomend Tortelini in carbonara sauce - real masterpiece. Thank You Antonio - hope we meet again.

“Brilliant Catanian local experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Antonio (owner and front of house) and Enza (cook) have a gorgeous intimate local restaurant just near the Castello Ursino in Catania. They specialise in the local Sicilian cuisine with an a la carte menu and daily specials. The fritturina (flash fried mixed fish and calamari) hits the spot perfectly.

Antonio is a generous and gorgeous host with great English and appeal and nothing is ever too much trouble. We stayed at the nearby Ursino Roof Garden Penthouse and ordered 'takeaway' from Antonio one night to have at home. He added a bottle of the beautiful white Moscato free of charge.

This is a local restaurant very reasonable in price and you can seat inside or outside with views to the Castello Ursino, its piazza and neighbouring shops. Even just having a coffee and watching the locals is great fun. I cant recommend this restaurant enough.
