During our recent cruise that included a too-brief stop in Catania, Sicily, we went sightseeing in this interesting city and through happenstance, chose the Royal Ceres Café (San Giuseppe at Duomo) for lunch. The Royal Ceres features fresh seafood and local favorites as well as some seafood that is probably frozen. My husband chose to have fresh fish sold by the kilo. Our waiter escorted my husband to display case to select his fish and the cooking method. Minutes later the cooked fish was filleted at our table. Meanwhile I ate Pasta alla Norma, a traditional Sicilian dish with eggplant and ricotta. Both our entrees were delicious, the café is definitely not touristy (the decor is British pub), and we enjoyed the experience. (plus the restrooms were clean.)

Passengers on the last cruise ship of the year we were sought after commodities for the normally bustling side street restaurants just off the Piazza Duomo. We were encouraged in by a persistent young lady who convinced us to give her uncle's place a try. The Royal Ceres specialized in fresh fish dishes, however we were only interested an a quick bite so we continued our search for the best Margherita pizza. We didn't find it - but it wasn't at all bad.
Our pizza for two with a half carafe of house red and a bottle of mineral water ended up costing 19.5 Euro. This included a 2.50 Euro charge for canned drinks??? (bevande in lattina) and a 4.00Euro cover charge. The pizza and wine were fine and it got us off our feet for awhile.
