Dinner at the Osteria Antico Marina - in the Catania Fish Market

After returning from Syracuse we rested a bit at our hotel. It was quite nice that we could simply hand the keys of our car to the hotel staff and have them take care of the parking. For dinner we took a short 10 minute walk to the fish market (closed in the evening) and had our dinner at the Osteria Antica Marina. The food was plentiful, authentic and scrumptious. The wines were lined up on a shelf for us to choose. 

We started with the antipasta - 8 small dishes of sardines, olives, eggplant and other delights. One of us had the tasting menu  and the other just a pasta. Of course we shared and had more food than needed. Monica had Pasta Norman which is made with eggplant was great and ravioli stuffed with tuna and baby tuna roe. Also had spaghetti with scampi and artichokes; two of Joe's favourites.   

Our main course was a plate of several fried local fish. 

We highly recommend this restaurant.
