Great restaurant in the center of Catania. A professional service and a large choice of sea food. The sword fish was excellent with grilled vegetables. The pasta cooked by the Chief Vito were perfectly "Al dente". Do not hesitate.

One of our better fish dinners. Pretty much everything from the Colapesce appetizer, which is not cheap but sure worth it, to the fish main courses were based on fresh materials and well prepared. Limoncello sorbet at the end completed an excellent meal.
