Fodor's Expert Review Osteria Antica Marina
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. 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. There's no wine list, but the efficient servers will be happy to recommend a suitable pairing.
