My Airbnb host advised me to have dinner at Trattoria del Cavalliere, which is in the center of Catania and serves typical Sicilian dishes she said. Although the dishes are typical Sicilian, the quality of the food and drinks is poor. I had linguine al...More

Wonderful food and service at this restaurant which is also reasonably priced. 5 of us walked in at 3.30 do lunch and despite the fact the kitchen was closing we had great antipasti and delicious grilled fish. Very nice service too.

Food was great and came with generous portion. We ordered some grilled horse meat and steak and a set without knowing it came in 4 courses and was surprised with the portion they serve. The seafood risotto and mussels were both very nice.

This was the worst experience ever at a restaurant. Both the starter (primo piatto) and main course (secondo) arrived at the same time. Waiters were rushing us in order to get the long queue of other tourists seated for their meal. Avoid, food is cheap...More
