"This is possibly one of the best restaurants I have ever been to and not only have I been to alot of restaurants, I've opened a few myself.
Been working in Italy for a while traveling pretty much everywhere and settled into Catania for a few weeks. Checked into tripadvisor and up pops trattoria ..."ruffiana.
I've been back 10 times and taken friends, family and my better half when visited.
The impressive part is not the extraordinary level of hospitality one finds in this little Sicilian gem but the level of consistency. You go back everytime and it just tastes better. That's why no matter what day you go they are always full in a time when Italy has been hit by a major financial crisis.
Things one MUST try:
- antipasti di pesce freschi
- their famous fresh pasta with Jerusalem artichoke and sea food (to die for)
- their Nero di sepia is one of the best I have ever eaten.
This is the best restaurant in the Catania region - I keep trying others not to be boring but ever...

"Me and my family went here for a quick lunch. It's a small bar and restaurant with a distinctly intellectual, theatrical, studenty vibe. The food was really good! It's a really nice alternative to the sometimes touristy hustle and bustle outside."
"I really enjoyed the food at this small restaurant! The service was fantastic and with the spectacle of the fish market right in your face you just can't beat the atmosphere and setting! The antipasti was some of the tastiest raw, pickled and cooked fish I've ever eaten. The mains were good and the..." dessert fantastic!
