A great place to eat some local fish dishes. There is English menu available, but the waitress didn't speak a single word in English. The potato side meal was cold, but the grilled swordfish was delicious.
The owner must be a huge collector of decorative plates, statues and other stuff...

A nice restaurant serving sea food. The decoration is probably typical for Sicily with plenty of colorful elements on the walls, maybe a bit too much for my taste. However it is cozy and welcoming.
We liked the service and especially the food. We tried the fish and the mussels- wonderful!
The wine options are not varied. They recommended the house wine, it was very good.
If you are looking for a good Sicilian trattoria, Giglio Rossi is a perfect choice.

We had several courses and everything was excellent. The atmosphere is delightful as it is filled with Sicilian ceramics. Would definitely go back next time in Catania.

Sooo much food! The antipasti themselves are a meal, and what a great meal that would be. Such variety, such flavour and at such a great price!
the pastas were excellent.
And the fish! Our servers were all great (especially the pretty young lady), but the server that served our fish was talented, friendly and so pleasant.
Our second night we had so much food, we took it with us for a wonderful lunch the next day!
You gotta eat here!
