This could be a 4-star review but finishing a meal and being told off, condescendingly, by the owner's son, for asking for a caffé machiatto (that's a small black coffee with a spot of milk, served all over Italia - except in this trattoria) as...More

If you’re thinking about eating here, turn around. Trying to pass frozen seafood off as fresh (twice) is a pure insult. We were recommended this place by some people working in a supermarket in Aci Castello. Ordered the fresh pasta with “malavoglia” after checking the...More

Very expensive restaurant - 45 euro per person paid in advance at the hotel. The dinner consists of small bruschetta, pasta and grilled meat without side dish and beverages. Portions are childlike. Rating: quality meals but expensive. Staff very respectful 100%. 45 euro per childlike...More

Not a huge choice in the menu. Steak was tough and over cooked. When it started raining and the patio area under the awning started to get wet we got up and motioned to move inside. Nope, wouldn’t allow us to move into the empty...More

One evening we went along the coast of the city in search of a restaurant. Quite a number of restaurants have invitees, so it's hard to decide who to accept and who does not. We choose this trattoria with nice decorations and terrace. The service...More

I was looking for a nice place to have my last lunch in Catania by the water and even if there were a row of restaurants, Malavoglia had an attractive vibe. It was still busy at roughly 230 in the afternoon and they do encourage...More

It is easy to past this place, as there are 6-7 restaurants in a row, but the food menu caught our eyes. It just opened for evening trade, so dishes arrived a little bit late, but didn`t mind admiring the sea front. Very good seafood,...More
