This is owned by the same people as Le Muse just across the street from each other in the fishing village. very good and very polite service. Loved the fresh fish and calamari.

We discovered this restaurant by chance and went there for lunch, which we really enjoyed. We had been dining out in Sicily for the past month and had lots of good restaurants to choose from, but we were so impressed (not only with the food but with the service, and the friendliness of the waiter) that we decided to book dinner for the following Saturday night. Our experience the second time was completely different. The service was dreadful - the waiter cleared away one plate as soon as one person had finished, even though the other person was still eating. We ordered a good bottle of wine - one of the most expensive on the menu - but were told there was none available so the waiter substituted it for something else without any discussion. The food was reasonable - the quality of the fish was good but ridiculously overpriced - and the serving size, particularly for this part of the world, was meagre and the potatoes served alongside were almost cold. The restaurant was not even busy (this was in January) yet the rapidity of the service was so fast as to be very rude. Throughout our time in Sicily we have found the waiters, chefs etc, to be extremely friendly and helpful so the rudeness of this waiter stood out a mile.

This restaurant specialise in sea food and they really live up to expectation. The srevice is very friendly and they treat you in a very familiarbway. The dish I recomend is the fish soup. Younhave to book it in advance but it is really worth it to have. This fish soup is a meal by itself. You have to go and try it out, its great.

Very nice food and wine combined with excellent service. And their tarta di pistacchio and lemon semifreddo are to die for!

I always visit Federico ti darei best seafoods and Fish in Catania and sorroundings. The place is Tiny and nice. Nearby the Sea and the docks, so After lunch/dinner you Can have a walk. Price per personalizzare for a full lunch is around 35/40 max. Waiters and owner of the place are always kind and professional. What to say apart that Federico is always a good experience to repeat!
