We ate here twice as the food was so good. This is a snack bar with tables overlooking the fish market just south of Piazza Duomo. Food is served in paper cones and plastic plates. You can also get bottled beer and wine in plastic cups.

I really enjoyed being sat here with my husband watching the whole go by and enjoying some italian style street food. We ordered the boneless fish cone and the Arancini-both were delicious! Wine and beer also very good.

After finding so many positive reviews online about this tiny unsuspecting place I went out of my way once in Catania to personally give it a try.
I was not disappointed at all. All fish and sea food lovers try this gem of street food style lab. I have tried all there is on the menu, simply divine. What I did not eat was the octopus salad, not because it was bad but because it was late at night and could not take more food! Highly recommended!!

Brilliant fresh little fish bar. Reasonably priced and great for a lunchtime treat. Loved watching the fish market and eating our seafood cones. Perfect!
