Ambasciata del Mare
Where is the best place for a seafood restaurant? Well, of course near a fish market. Ambasciata del Mare comes highly recommended after a visit to Catania's famous fish market 'Pescheria'. The chef offers a cuisine based on vegetables of the season and the catch of the day, composing real 'symphonies' of flavours. Shrimps, lobster, sea basses, fried calamari, pasta with anchovies and fennel...
Try the pasta with swordfish or tuna eggs, classic spaghetti with cuttlefish ink, or the catch of the day grilled or baked in a salt crust - simply heaven! Or you go for the tasty fried red mullet, cuttlefish and squid.
All desserts are homemade, like cannoli e.g., accompanied by sorbets, sweet Sicilian dessert wines and Sicilian brandies
Good assortment of Sicilian wine labels, moderate prices and friendly service.
Everything in this seafood temple is worth a try. Our favourite dish is the grilled king prawns.
