ANTICA MARINA

 

IN THE HEART OF CATANIA’S “PESCHERIA” FISH MARKET DISTRICT

 

Our restaurant is made unique by its location. It is literally immersed in the city’s extraordinarily adventuresome fish market – a must see on international tourist itineraries. This district tells of centuries of history where typical dishes and culinary specialties maintain all the flavour and authenticity of the fish-based Sicilian cuisine, occasionally re-interpreted in a “creative” manner. It is not unusual for our Japanese visitors to even prefer it to their sushi!

The further offshore you get, the more fish you’ll catch.

 

 

Sardines in dressing, pasta with sardines, spaghetti in black squid ink sauce, stuffed sardines, sea algae: these are only a handful of the delicacies you will find at the Antica Marina restaurant where every meal is an unforgettable ritual.

Cu avi lingua passa u mari

 

If you are able to communicate, you will have no trouble crossing the seven seas

 

A delightful restaurant located in the city’s picturesque “Pescheria” district located between Piazza Duomo and the monumental Wall of Charles V in the heart of 18th century Catania.

 

The restaurant welcomes its guests for lunch and dinner. They are offered a distinctive cuisine renowned for its freshness and delicious flavour. The name Antica Marina refers to the famous late 19th century “Archi della Marina” stone viaduct connecting the central railway station to the city centre.

 

The cosy, minimal ambiance of the restaurant lends itself to a great loyalty to time-honoured traditional flavours heightened by recipes that preserve the history of great Sicilian cuisine. The result is a gastronomic experience that is epicurean and authentic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE MENU

 

 Megghiu picca e gòdiri,

ca assai e tribuliari.

 

It’s better to have less and enjoy it than to have plenty and suffer.

 

We delight in sitting at the table and enjoying the intense flavour of the sea.
