Take a nice stroll out to the "beach" area of Catania and enjoy a wonderful lunch near the sea. Cutilisci has a lovely shaded patio to enjoy your lunch, but this place does not only rest on it's beautiful location. This slow food restaurant hand picks all of its ingredients from local sources. The pizza was some of the best... More

This restaurant was excellent the food was great and the menu was fabulous. You could have pizza, pasta, burgers and seafood. The pizza was one of the best pizzas I have ever had. The view outside was stunning you could see the other towns right across the ocean. It was a very enjoyable night.

We had dinner on a Thurs evening. The place is beside the sea, simple but very welcoming. The evening was warm enough to eat outside. Absolutely delicious food, prepared with care. We had a bruschetta starter to share, followed by the pasta al a norma (typical Sicilian) and a pizza. Apple crumble to finish off a delightful evening. It was... More

Pizzas here are simply great and a feast for pizza lovers. But only thing you need is patience to experience and enjoy these amazing pizzas. The wait is a bit too much but the quality and taste of food is the best in Sicily.

The pizza was very tasteful here. Not like in other places, the pizza cost here only around 6-7€. The wine we had to the pizza was also good for its price. The only manko was the service. First we had to wait around 15minutes till somebody came to us. Even as we waved to the waiter. He saw us but... More

Nice location, very nice and friendly service. Food is ok, fish cous cous is actually very good but spatola aubergines and the octopus salad are average. We haven't tried the pizza which looked good.

Loved our dinner at this restaurant, such a lovely, casual setting on the sea with boats out front. Kids could run and play before and after dinner. The pizza was incredible!!!! My partner had the timpa rossa, special ham with a special cheese (buratta), it was awesome. Love this place!!!!!!!!

Tried this higher quality bistro, that should be rated higher than other surrounding restaurants. It's a limited menu for lunch, so the focus is a high quality and fresh local tastes. Everything is special and innovative. Nice ocean view with outside tables. Prices are very reasonable with enough variety to please different palates. Wine is just simple local budget types....

Restaurant Cutilisci is located on an elegant and romantic square in Catania, a city of the Sicilian east coast. The kitchen, consisting exclusively of natural and organic products, is based mainly on fish but we also offer several meat dishes. Our cuisine has an original touch and is characterized by a constant search for quality and (perfection). Therefore our menu changes frequently, since it is based on seasonal ingredients.
