Sicilian cooking is hands down the best in the world. But if you are in the mood for something different while in Catania, look no further than this place (assuming Sushi is for you. Guess it is if you are reading this review!)

The toro melted like butter in my mouth. Every piece we had was better than the next.

I was recently here for a week and ate here twice. That should say everything you need to know.

Oxidiana was tastefully wonderful.
(I’m not certain, but I think the word oxidiana means layers, such as volcanic glass. Assuming because of the volcanic history of activity nearby?)
So my guess is possibly because the restaurant has layers of goodness?
Anyway, if you live here or are simply traveling through Catania and looking for something other than Italian, you’ll be happy to try Oxidana’s.
Their portion sizes are enough to share!! The staff and service were spot on.
I’ve added only two photos, but you cannot go wrong with anything you order. Trust me, we watched every dish as it came out.
I would suggest making a reservation. We did so on their website. It was very crowded.
It was a taste to remember.

We went for a short notice Sushi Dinner at Oxidiana. We got (no reservation) two places at the Sushi Bar (Thu evevenig, all tables reserved).

To make along story short, perfect Sushi and Tempura, friendly service, great wine. And we enjoyed quite a while with 4 courses of sushi and tempura variations in the lively and stylish atmosphere.

We will come back for sure.

A very happy surprise to find incredibly fresh and skillfully prepared sashimi in Catania. Friendly helpful service, extensive wine list both local and other but the highlight is the raw fish and the skill of the chef. Amazing quality, variety and freshness of the fish and seafood was evident in the large sashimi platter skillfully prepared. Tempura fish and vegetables also well done. If you like raw fish (and other japanese food done well) this is the place! This is not the cheapest place by Catania standards but for the quality, skill and quantity, well worth it. The place is very popular including the cocktail bar so recommend booking ahead. Very close to the Mercure hotel. Restaurant opens 8pm so may want to grab a drink/snack beforehand if you usually eat early.
