Menza – Catania

Menza is a cool little restaurant in downtown Catania that has every traditional Sicilian dish… and the best part is that its all ready to go!  You walk into a room of glass cases stuffed with all sorts of Sicilian delicacies.  The dishes range from antipasti like octopus salad (Insalata di Polpo) all the way through to secondi like Palermo style swordfish (Pesce Spada Palermitana).  Also one whole side of the place is dedicated to the sweets!  Very cool place that I recommend stopping in for a solid lunch.
