The fresh swordfish was well-prepared. The staff is friendly and helpful. The kitchen, however, is a bit slow. We were the first people in the restaurant and had quite a wait for the main course. It was worth the wait.

Vineria Picasso was recommended by our Tour Director and was an excellent choice. A bit of a challenge to find, it offered excellent local cuisine, English-speaking staff, and a huge wine selection. They offer a fixed menu as well as daily specials. Prices were reasonable...More

The restaurant “Picasso”, opened in 1991, serves traditional Sicilian dishes and more than 350 different Sicilian types of wine bottles. Over the years the local has become the reference point of the enogastronomy in the historical center of Catania. The local offers an excellent buffet of starters. The first courses are particularly recommended. The menu includes second courses consisting in fish and meat.
