Dish quality was perfect. Great respect to the chief and team! 5 points with no doubts. Atmosphere was good enough. Though table size is quite small to even place a couple of appetizers, plates and water. Also a little place between neighbor table is a bit unconfortable. So fair 3 points. Unfortunately the service was really disappointing. Had to wait 5-10 minutes just to get the menu and finally got only one (guys, is it really a great problem to make as many menus as it is required by your place?). Two different waiters served us during the evening. But even this didn't make them to bring knives with main dishes and an ice bucket with wine without reminders (we've honestly waited 5 minutes hoping they would realize the mistake, got bucket only when the wne was almost over). After finishing the main dishes we've waited over 20 minutes to order desserts but no one came. Finally decided to take deserts in other place and paid for the dinner at the bar counter. 1 point for service is a great favor. Hope you will make right conclusions.

The food was OK but since this was rated as one of the very top restaurants in Catania I expected much better. The bruschetta was excellent, the tuna tartare was good but the other dishes we ordered were very average. Service was rather slow and the waiters didn't seem to care whether we were enjoying our food. I sent back one dish practically untouched and the waiter just asked whether I had finished and not why I had not eaten the food I had ordered. I asked for pepper, it was brought to the table after I had finished my food. The setting was pleasant and the discount made the price we paid fair for the quality of the food we were served.

Corte dei Biscari was the best restaurant I went to Sicily. Top notch service, Marco and Roberto were professionals and friendly and both of them spoke english, a major plus. Best restaurant.

Excellent food & service. Very professional and helpful waiter. An absolute must if you enjoy fresh fish and expertly prepared dishes. Anyone who say this is not a truly Sicilian restaurant is clearly missing the point. The fish comes straight from the sea right there!

It is hard for a person who's everyday diet is seafood to give a good rating for a seafood restaurant. This one scoring A.

(Sea) Food was fantastic and service is beyond hospitality excellence. We celebrated a friend's birthday, the restaurant prepared a cake. Easy for tourists to communicate in English too.

Set by a historical palace, this restaurant is unique. Amazing service and seafood. Raw seafood and Degustazione “Corte dei Biscari” is a 6 courses appetaizer that can be consider as a complete dinner! And buckwheat tagliolini are delicious!
I really recomend this restaurant.
