“(not only for Tourist) Trap”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We like all sorts of restaurants: from very simple to the up-scale ones. Only one rule: what the restaurant serves has to be the best of its level, had to be honest, fresh and price-quality correct.
This restaurant seamed a simple but fantastic restaurant (location is fantastic, on a balcony over the sea), but is nothing like that. The fish is not the best (i am afraid not fresh!), and we had several bad plates. With the result that me and my girlfriend were sick the whole night! We spent 2 fantastic weeks in Sicily, we ate everywhere very good...except here.

“We have eaten there twice in a week”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

The sea food and service are excellent. The antipasti are so abundant you don't need the rest!

“Very good fish and seafood in a typical Sicilian restaurant”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

We were recommended this restaurant by the owners of our B&B close to Catania. We booked a table as it looks very busy. We had an antipasto di mare with smoked salmon, fried shrimps and small fish, octopus salad, mussels, a ball of rice with seafood, aranci-style and stuffed mussels. We skipped the seafood pasta although it looked great at the next table. We had a fish mixed grill with seabass (rery fresh and tasty) and grilled shrimps and squid. we finished the dinner with an excellent lemon sherbet so tasty and creamy. It may not be the only fish restaurant worth a visit in the region but if you're close to it, it's a good address !

“Wonderful food. Nice setting.”
Reviewed June 6, 2010

We had a fantastic meal at Da Lorenzo. Seafood is their specialty, very fresh and beautifully prepared. The squid-ink pasta was to die for. Relaxed but attentive service. And the seaside setting offered a nice water view..
