Sicily=ricotta=cannoli? Nope. Ricotta=raviola al forno from bar Etoile d'Or! This bar I know of old and its standards have never failed. The patisserie lab is in-house and even in the small hours of the night, the best breakfast treats get dished out here. Their raviola...More

Tavola calda - street food at its best and most "popular". Make your way through porta Uzeda from Duomo to enjoy the local specialty: Raviola Fritta con Ricotta; a fried donut filled with ricotta cheese (don't expect less than 1000 cals per portion!). The interior...More

Tucked away behind the fish market but very obviously popular with local people. Great selection of local specialities and amazing value.

If in Catania this is the first place you should head. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, late night snack, you can get it here. It's open all hours, you get all sorts of people coming and going, and it's quite an atmospheric and informal local spot. THE...More

This cafe is open 24 hours, right in centre of the fish market. Bustling, busy and typically Italian with a wide selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes and mouth-watering dulcis (desserts) Coffees, teas, soft drinks and alcohol and lots of loud chatter!!
