I am not a real fish lover BUT I became one after my visit here. I really loved the meal here. We booked a table for 10/12 people and we could taste any sort of local seafood available. We came here on suggestion of a friend and since the very start the personnel and owner have been kind and fun... More

I have eaten food all over the world and typically Italian food is just alright for me. I love the freshness, but typically it fails to WOW me when I go out to eat Italian food... This changed everything! This is hands down the best meal I have had in my life. Service is usually something that I look at... More

As others have said, don't be fooled by the inauspicious exterior, I Cavaddari's interior is a bit like the tardis! Not sure the English menu was very helpful ... but the food was fantastic. We shared a special antipasto between two and it was more than enough. Fabulous mixed grill fish main course. If you are a meat lover this... More

Do not judge this restaurant by the front door. Prepare to be amazed. Try the antipasto and wait before ordering a main course as we never made it past it. The chef must be an artist in his spare time as can be seen by the presentation of the food. Truly an excellent dining experience.

After a really bad experience in a restaurant in Acireale, we were very sceptical but were lucky enough to fall upon this wonderful place. Everything about the place was simply divine with one surprise after the other. Welcomed with a lovely glass of prosecco and an entre, compliments of the chef. Food is of the highest quality, the pasta is... More

Staff very nice. Big place, mainly in a courtyard. Clientele almost exclusively locals; lots of children, and many big parties. Specialty is fish. Menu small - basically catch of the day, with some pastas. Three fixed price menus at 30, 35 and 40 Euros, which is what most people order. You get a lot of food for them, including free... More

A little oasis of calmness in a beautiful back yard. Very friendly waitress Roberta helped us to choose from the menu. The starter came with a tasty collection of different fish, very well presented. Everything was fresh and tasty. Will definitely come back!

Excellent food - diverse and delicious seafood, served with style and charm. We had a lovely evening. It is in a village which is not so prepossessing, but the moment you step into the restaurant, it is stylish and high quality.
