We were near the Fish Market and tried this . The service was slow and the calamari was "ok" . Nothing to say it excelled compared to the other choices.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two meals at this brilliant restaurant. The service is excellent, they are serious about their cooking and the white wine offered by the glass was so good.

Excellent service. Wonderful food. I had pasta with swordfish and aubergine. My husband had spaghetti with clams. Both were exceptional. A pistachio torte for dessert was the perfect finish. Nice atmosphere. Excellent experience.

The restaurant Sikulo charged us full price for inedible main courses that we waited more than 90 minutes for, when we were the first table of the evening. We returned our main courses having only taken a few bites. I clearly expressed our dissatisfaction, paid...the 93 Euros and left disappointed. Ristorante Sikulo in Catania Sicily is not to be reccomended.More

The food and service was amazing UNTIL the waiter offered to give us free desert. When the bill came they charged us 110 Euro. When we questioned them about it, the waiter smirked and pretended he didn't understand what we said. An obvious scam they've...done before to tourists. Stay away!!!More

We had a great experience at this restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was great. The price was very reasonable. It is better to make reservation as most tables were reserved and restaurant filled up quickly.

What a fabulous evening!!! The fish soup was one of the most incredible dishes ever. Our dessert was my husbands all time favorites. Service was so sincere. My husband is allergic to shellfish and fish. They went out of their way to accommodate him. So...kind! Loved this place. Thank you so much for an amazing dinner!More

There are a lot of great restaurants in Catania. The food in Sicily is almost as a rule exceptional and the bar is set very high. This place exceeds that bar.

We waited 45 mins. Until food came, we mentioned our frustration and the waiter (he mentioned he was the owner) shouted at us!!! Everything went wrong! Starting with water which most probably was not an original bottle but coming from faucet…. Never had this experience...in my life !!More

Good products, ok cuisine for Sicily, very bad experience with the service Long story short: they were bargaining on small things and disrespectful, which spoiled the lunch I had a payment issue, they could not accommodate it directly but made a global offer, so the...compensates and this is not an issue. I order a fish of the day. It was well grilled and the fish was very fresh. It was quite badly cut, but that’s not such a big problem. With my 550g fish, costing around 30 euros, the only side was quite a tiny plate of not very tasty salad. I had ordered some blank pasta (5 euro). I asked for more salad once and they give me again such a tiny portion. When I finished, I wanted to ask for more, one server told me he is coming but finally did not, and the others were walking pretending they do not see me, so after one minute or two of waiving, I got up. The woman said ok, but finally the boss came to my table saying it is not possible since it is the second time. I had to discuss with him, he asked if it is ok if they put that in one of the even smaller plates on my table (!), I said yes, and they gave me the same tiny size, which was sufficient this time in total. To me, it is completely ridiculous, for a 30-euro dish, to give nothing but this on the side, and, worse, to begin to make problems giving more (not good salad, once again, but better than nothing). I did not even touch the bread! This type of thing gives a headache and ruins the experience. Note that it was a common olive oil, not a Sicilian high quality like in other restaurants. There was a second issue in the end. I ordered a dessert. Finally, I changed my mind on which one. I got up and ask if the strawberries of the cheesecake are Sicilian. The girl said yes. Then the boss, to which I ordered the first dessert, came out of the cuisine with it. I asked the same questions, and he answered no, I was surprised and he said the first dessert is Italian, the cheesecake in American (which was not, of course, the question) and that it is settled. At my table, I was not happy and had to go back with my plate saying I want the other one. Then the boss told me that because of covid, if something comes out of the cuisine, he cannot serve it to another person. It explained why at this point I could not change, but not at the point in which it was only in his hands. And, most importantly, why didn’t he say so directly, instead of giving me rubbish talks about cheesecakes not being Italian and being so rude with me?! I would have understood if there was a real explanation.More
