This (big) gem by the sea is a must see in Catania. Very friendly and English speaking staff, fantastic food and the most local restaurant experience I've ever seen. We almost felt like true Italians here.

Low season (winter) weekday evening and place was full. That already tells a lot. Better reserve before, if you want to be sure. Inside is quite small and can be a little bit tight, but the food - fantastic. The best sicilian ingredients!

Great food and service, very quiet if you sit by the sea. The prices are not so high, pizza is amazing. Fully recommend it!

Restaurant Cutilisci is located on an elegant and romantic square in Catania, a city of the Sicilian east coast. The kitchen, consisting exclusively of natural and organic products, is based mainly on fish but we also offer several meat dishes. Our cuisine has an original touch and is characterized by a constant search for quality and (perfection). Therefore our menu changes frequently, since it is based on seasonal ingredients.
