This trattoria is excellent! Kindest staff possible, very good prices and superb food!
Antipasti are excellent ....though to eat only one plate of these phenomenal flavorful (freshly made every day) dishes. Ask for pasta specials to Signor Francesco or to Alessia and they will kindly offer the specialties of the day. Try swordfish pasta and pasta al nero di sepia. Finish you meal with a yummy polpetta di cavallo (horse meatball).

Efficiently run by a brother and sister team this little trat has tables set out in a narrow street that barely leaves enough room for the (fortunately) light vehicle traffic. Horse meat is a particular delicacy in Catania and after the superb help yourself antipasti we had a plate of mixed horse and pig meat with some excellent chips. The meat was all cooked on an open fire - the translation of U Fucularu from Sicilan apparently approximates to the barbeque - and was succulent and tasty. Add half a litre of vino locale and a bottle of water and we were given a bill for 62.50 euros which was rounded down to 60! Remarkable value for money for 3.

I love going out to eat and also love cooking. I´ve been to several different restaurants in entire Italy and all over the world and this one is simply one of the best. Do not miss gli antipasti ....simply delicious!! Very good local red wine. Le sarde a becafico are delicious as well as pasta con sugo di sarde al finochietto. Excellent food for reasonable price. Worthwhile visiting!

We found this amazing trattoria through Trip Advisor and was not disappointed by our choice to go there. We stayed in Catania for two weeks and promised ourselves that every night we find a new place to dine, so we tried many different... but came back to U Fucularu 3 times and had 3 course meal ! Menu they offer is quite small, but the food was freshly made and very delicious, desserts are so so good too. We just love Nero D'avola grapes, so we think they had a nice choice of vines. If you want to experience real italian family trattoria U Fucularu is the place to go!

Really good food, loved the fish soup. Starters terrific. Very kind staff. Would recommend to people, but be aware soon crowded after 8:30pm. Don`t come too late when you are hungry and need some food asap. Otherwise, enjoy a Gin Tonic next door in a bar and wait for a table. Relaxed atmosphere! Prices low, although food of high quality.
