Visited this restaurant after reading the reviews. Yes the staff have very limited English but was pretty busy and ate in the courtyard. Our starters were good but my mussels with long macaroni, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes was disappointing. Nearly half of my mussels did...More

Recommended by a friend, we made reservations at this small and out of the way restaurant. Located near the Fish Market, Giglio Rosso has a restaurant that is small, but only used when the weather is cold or raining. Next door as an alley way...More

I picked this place for dinner based on the TA reviews, many of which I’m now convinced must be either fake or written by people with no experience of what good food actually is. Seriously. Just avoid this place. First, the house white tasted like...More

The food is truly amazing! If you are in Catania this place is a “must” to visit! Small restaurant with great Italian cuisine that would satisfy the most pretensions food seekers. The food is better than in any other place suggested in the trip advisor.

Food is just delicious. Is not a tourist rip-off at all, they cook as it is meant to be. Atmosphere is enhanced by the lovely decorations. You can easily go with 20-25 EUR per person.

A great place to eat some local fish dishes. There is English menu available, but the waitress didn't speak a single word in English. The potato side meal was cold, but the grilled swordfish was delicious. The owner must be a huge collector of decorative...More

Hi, This restaurant does not have an outside area. I still strongly advise you to give it a chance for the quality of the food, though.
