This is a very local trattoria positioned away for the main tourist areas. On a small quiet piazza (Piazza Cavour) not far from the Botanic Gardens. It is run by two brothers. They have a very straightforward proposition, specialising in fish: 1. Pick your starter from the buffet counter. 2. Pick your 'secondi' - whole fish from the same cold... More

It is a leisurely stroll away from the tourist heart (and prices to match) and just off via etnea. The pastas are freshly prepared and tasty and you select your own fish from a well... More

Fresh fish & seafood rest on a bed of ice at the front of the restaurant. You chose your own. The menu offered a... More
