The best place to dine in Catania
Taste good food in Italy is not hard and to enjoy great flavors and family feelings the place is at Trattoria El Chiringuito in Viale di Lauria Ruggerio. Mercedes (wonderful chef, half Spanish and Neapolitan) will make you feel that you reached the heavens of Restaurants. Start with the antipasto di mare and do not hesitate for a second to eat La paella; the pizzas are excellent, well above the average. Do not forget to ask Giuseppe recommend a bottle of good wine, sure that its options will have an excellent Nerello Mascarlese. The place is all freshness, familiarity and very good flavors. First class attention.
A footnote for those looking for short serving times and and staff fluent in English, go to burger king it's just some few meters ahead.

We were in Catania for two nights and ate here both nights. The first night when we arrived there were only a few other tables with guests at them but within 30 minutes there were no empty seats, we knew then that the food was going to be good with so many local people there. The wait staff were friendly and went out of their way to understand us and our lack of Italian! Their English was very limited but their kindness wasn't. We had pasta ala norma and a bruchetta pizza the first night and the pasta was the best we had in Sicily and the bruchetta pizza was so good we had it again the next night with fried calamari!

Rather strange restaurant couldn't find a name. The dinning area was rather like a large tent but the food was so good we went twice.
