Restaurant looked quite & clean. Waiter gave us the menu, price where quite high compared with other local prices. Also a charge of... More

this is one of those places where you can be sure the food is prepared according to local classical recipes. Quite obviously you cannot expect international cuisine to be the focus here, it would be a crime anyway! Therefore, forget your diet for one day, And get down to full extent, indulging to the rich sicilian cuisine, a real triumph... More

The food was very good but it seemed like we were at the cemetery and the waiters were zombies. The atmosphere completely spoiled our evening... very sad and cold. I would not recommend it if you are looking for a cheerful Sicilian evening.

I had a dinner in this famous restaurant for traditional Catania cuisine. The fish is fresh with a good variety, displayed on ice, and you can select your own also how to cook it. Seafood and pasta are well prepared; a highlight for me was the Carpaccio di pesce spada (raw) as appetizer. Price is in the high side for... More

We've been living in Catania 6 months now and have been to La Siciliana 4 times. The fish is fresh, displayed on ice, and you can select your own. Seafood and pasta are well prepared, a highlight for us is the carpaccio di pesce spade fresco. Wine is very reasonably priced and your host will take you to the cellar... More

Vacationing in Sicily, found the name in a travel guide, and it didn't let us down. The service was personalized and impeccable from the first moment. You should ask to pick your fish from the batch of FRESH catch they have on an ice display. Ask for White Sicilian wine, which is amazing, and the 12 Euro bottle is perfect,... More

A bit strange that this restaurant is relatively lowly rated in TA, yet earns a place in the top five Catania restaurants in the Michelin Guide. The location is a few kilometres North of the centre of Catania, so really only accessable by car. Our Sunday lunch here was very satisfactory. The English speaking waiter was helpful and efficient. The... More

I was there during a meeting with colleagues. Recommended by locals, food quality is OK, but average comapred to other popolar restaurant in town. You pay three times the same things that you can get in many other places of the area. The traditional appetizer/side dish buffet is unacceptable, with poor food of scarce quality and freshness. Not recommended.

Four of us combined a birthday and a wedding anniversary celebration. The owner welcomed us with a tour of the wine cellar! Always a good start. The helped us choose a variety of courses and dishes typical of the area and showcasing both local cuisine and the chef's expertise. The pace was slow and perfect. And special requests were easily...

I have been at this restaurant many times for years. The food is fresh and most of the time good. It is a safe place if you want to bring your collegues or friends. They serve good fish, good pasta, appetisers and dessert. They have a separate room for smokers. Price do not include the tip, which will be automatically... More
