Great dinner with business colleague. We had few antipasti of raw fish - simply delicious and amazingly fresh - tasted as if they were just caught - fresh scallops, prawns and shellfish that was so fresh was moving when squeezing lemon on it ! Then a plate of squid ink pasta washed down with a magnificent bottlem of white wine from the Etna valley, finishing with an exquisite chocolate mousse gateau to die for, to close with an excellent italian cup of coffee - ristretto as it should be.

Amazing choice of various freshest local seafood options, including oysters, etc.

Great service - the staff is eager to explain the menu, and to offer different cooking styles.

Very nice view, as the restaurant is located in a small bay

I eat with my wife or with my extended family at tHis place a couple of times each year, being a Catania native and living in London. I found quality to be constant. They always have fresh seafood. Try it raw if you fancy

Our last meal of our honeymoon in Sicily. Incredible, tasty fresh wonderful food. The fried fish plate and mussel soup starters were gorgeous. Our favourite meal of our ten days in Sicily. Fantastic! Thank you II Porticciolo! Particular highlight was me being called 'Miss' by our friendly waiter (he still didn't understand when we tried to explain). Era Squisito!

I had the opportunity to have an excellent lunch in this restaurant and the experience was amazing, everything was extremely fresh ( in some cases I had the doubt that was live...) food was prepared with the intelligent use of the local flavours like olive oil, pasta from Sicily....
Also the wine was suggested with extreme competence and what about the sorbetto done "in house" with local bio mandarin fruit? SUPERB!
Final evaluation: if you are close to Acireale, make a detour to visit this restaurant!
