We had pasta with pistagecream and one called Amitriciana (tomatoesauce). Both better than pasta at home. To top it I really recommend their local wine (rosso) which blended perfectly with the dishes we ate.

The steak is a scramble of the cow. Fish only frozen. Olive oil from the Metro supermarket "white label". Pizza with hardly tomato or cheese. We trapped in the tourist trap.

Tratoria Romantica is just right in the center, few steps from Piazza Duomo. Genuine Italian food, family style, place run by nice people. Great pizzas especially pizza alla norma recommende (5-9Euro), pastas (5-8Euro) and "locale wine" (6Euro -1l). Genuine prices. Highly recommended.

Great location, beautiful street in the city center of Catane, however, the food and the service are absolutely disappointing. The food is bad, the fish was not appropriately cooked and the level of service very unprofessional. I would avoid this place if you are in...More
