Not sure where the ££££ price rating is coming from as the prices are normal / very reasonable for what's on offer. The food is of a really high quality, and the service is authentic. Clearly this is a place the locals favour!

We arrived late and wanted to have a nice and typical meal....this was a perfect place. The food was very good, with a good selection of starters, all very well prepared. Service was super quick and professional. Our waiter spoke 3 languages what helped a lot. Definitely go for the sea food. The wine of the house was decent, and... More

The first impression of the restaurant is good: dishes on offer, prices and dining room. The food was OK. The swordfish ravioli tasted too strongly of fish and had unpleasant results on my intestine the next day. The dessert was average. This was the first restaurant we went to when arriving in Catania but we avoided it when we returned... More

We parked by chance in front of the restaurant for our hotel stay and someone came out (happened to be a senior staff) spontaneously to advise us on the parking and the payment. So we decided to try it out for dinner on our first night out in Catania, as a way to show our appreciation to the kind team.... More

Good sized appetizer, seconds and wine at good price. Very nice and helpful staff and quick service in a downtown restaurant (there are actually two Sicilia in Bocca in Catania)

came here for lunch on a Sunday in Catania. The seafood is fantastic as you would expect in all of Sicily, however anyone who has been to Palermo will know that good seafood can indeed be a rarity! Unlike many places in Palermo Sicilia in Bocca serves up delicious fresh seafood in a lovely restaurant with great decoration and friendly... More

We ate here a couple of times during our stay in Catania. The staff are welcoming and very helpful - and can communicate in English and French as well as Italian. The food is lovely from the bread basket (sesame breadsticks to die for!) to the desserts. It is predominantly a fish restaurant, and although I'm not a huge fish... More

Easy parking on place Paolo Borsellino (leave €1 to the locals for showing you where to park), the restaurant is nicely furbished with lots of local crafts and the result is pleasant. Staff is friendly and educated. Food was good for the value and clearly local. Recommended.

We had a very good dinner in September. Really good food in an absolute sense but even more if tied to the money we paid. Well done, we will be back!
