What a good surprise! Sea food was perfect. We ordered a but of everything in this place but the sea food was excellent...from the marinated starters, the mussels, the fishes and shrimps. All fresh, with the right combination of spices and well served. Definitely one of the very good options in this area of the city.

One of the best places in Catania. Owned and managed by fantastic family. Everything is absolutely fresh, just like right out of the sea. Frito Misto is a must! Tiramisu, sorbet and other desserts are delicious. Wine list which consist of mostly wines from local - famous and infamous producers is very, very good. Service is better than anywhere else....

The clientele visiting this place when we went was entirely local which I think says something. The room was clean and well appointed making for a comfortable evening in the restaurant. The menu whilst dominated by fish is still extensive. The staff were welcoming and were very helpful in advising (in English) on dishes that were not familiar. The fish... More

Best fish restaurant in Catania. Fishes are very fresh. Very good service, but you have to know Italian. You may have little issues if you keep communicating in English. Good wine. Prices are little bit high. Anyway, strongly recommended.
