Im trying to catch up on posts. I have so many pictures over the past few months that I haven’t been able to get to…. Slowly but surely. This post is about a visit Jess and I did to Catania one afternoon and evening. It was cool walking around town in the evening because the stores really come alive. If you were to walk around Catania between the hours of 1-4pm you would only see closed storefronts for the most part.
We had a late lunch at a place called Ristorante Al Cavalier Roxy. (Piazza Federico di Svevia, 51 95121 Catania) This place was in a great location right across from the Castle that is downtown Catania. Right when you walk in you’re greeted by a super long antipasto buffet with all different types of items. Good start. Also of note is that there are many pictures of celebrities that have visited on the walls… sometimes a good sign. It was a good lunch … not the best but not bad. It was crazy how busy it got during our meal… when we first arrived we were the only customers and by the end the place was jammed and I couldn’t get a hold of the overwhelmed waiters. It must be a pretty popular place.
Seeing the duomo and other sights at night was a completely new experience in our nearby big city.
