Fodor's Expert Review Scirocco Sicilian Fish Lab

$ Catania Casual Fodor's Choice

In the heart of the fish market, you'll find the best fritto misto in the area. Walk up to the little counter on the stone balcony overlooking the action and place your order for a paper cone of fried seafood made with the lightest and crispiest batter. They even offer the choice of an all-vegetable option or "no spines" (senza spine) if you prefer your order not to have the small whole fried fish. Give them your name and find a spot at one of the nearby standing tables while you wait.
