A very happy surprise to find incredibly fresh and skillfully prepared sashimi in Catania. Friendly helpful service, extensive wine list both local and other but the highlight is the raw fish and the skill of the chef. Amazing quality, variety and freshness of the fish and seafood was evident in the large sashimi platter skillfully prepared. Tempura fish and vegetables... More

After not having sushi for a long time, the quality of our meal blew me away. Nothing was unacceptable or surprising. Presentation was lovely and the palate was very pleased. A pricey place but COMPLETELY worth every penny. Desserts were very pleasant and not overly sweet. Great way to top off the meal.

We took Catania Rolls and California Rolls, both great quality and a good sicilian wine (Leone di Tasca). Friedly stuff and international atmosphere. Aircondition a bit too cold, but it is worth going there, Locale asiatico di atmosfera simpatica e grande qualità di mangiare. servizio gentile, vini buoni..vale la pena andarci, raro in Sicilia trovare un posto così!

We went here for a treat as we are big fans of seafood. We were lucky to get a table as we had no reservation. Had a drink at the bar while we surfed the huge menu, and were given a delicious bar snack of fried marinated fish bits. These were so good my mouth is watering writing this. We... More

The non plus ultra sushi restaurant in Catania. Excellent uramaki, especially their take roll specialty, great tuna tartare and sashimi. If you're looking for an elegant location with nice people and very good service, this is the place to go.

Oxidiana was a great break after 2 weeks of Sicilian food. It is a large modern restaurant boasting a nice decor. The menu is large and features dishes you won't find at your average Japanese place. The freshness of the fish was exceptional, you could feel it in both taste and texture. Service was a bit slow and impersonal. Prices... More

I eat here about once a month and it has never disappointed, the specialty rolls are very good (I like the Cristal and the Catania) and the sashimi is fresh.

I love Oxidiana! Having lived in Japan for 5 years, I often find myself craving sushi and this is the only place in Sicily that I will eat at or recommend to others for sushi. I normally order sashimi or nigiri, so I can't speak to their rolls or other menu items. However, every time I have been, (which is... More
