Fodor's Review

Just steps from Catania’s famous fish market, this bustling osteria makes a perfect stop for ultrafresh seafood, surrounded by an energetic mix of locals and in-the-know tourists. You'd do well to follow their lead and start with the seafood antipasti, a rotating selection of whatever's freshest that day. Antica Marina's famed for its linguine with sea urchin, but you also can't go wrong with spaghetti with mussels and algae or ricotta panzotti in black-squid-ink sauce; just save room for the freshly grilled whole fish. If you can't choose, opt for one of the good-value prix-fixe menus (€25–€65). There's no wine list, but the efficient servers will be happy to recommend a suitable pairing.
