Dine at outdoor tables here. Great selection at very reasonable prices (unless you order fresh fish at market price and by weight, which can drive your tab way up, as we found out on our 3rd visit here.)Low cover charge. Good service. Thoroughly enjoyed the multitude of selections at the antipasto buffet and admire the vast display of fish which... More

We were disappointed in this restaurant, particularly in comparison to the others we tried in Catania. The food was fine, but the wait staff were brusque and not helpful. We were charged for two items we didn't receive and while they removed them from the bill, they probably would not have if we had not asked. There are other better... More

This restaurant offers a good cross section of Sicilian cuisine, including seafood and horse. The service is good (our server was humorous) and the prices on the low side. e.g., 100 g of pasta with olive oil, garlic and chilies, 5€, and a horse meat ball, 2€, pesto linguine with clams, shrimp and eggplant, 11€. The mussel soup (appetizer) was... More

Mix seafood it means two type of fish and 3-4 pcs of calamari rings. The bread is super good. Pasta a little heavy.

Might not look the best restaurant from the outside but food is brilliant. Very typical Italian food, in fact it was full of locals. Service was slow as restaurant was full but we were very well served. Will definitely return next time we come to Catania.
