Sicily‚s second-largest city rocks – sometimes, quite literally thanks to its seismic history and proximity to the smoking volcano Etna. Centuries of classic treasures and design are on display in its old town.

Polpette are traditional Catanian meatballs. But they don’t only consist of meat, and don’t necessarily have the size of marbles either!
At Polpetteria it’s a different ‘ball game’. The menu boasts 45 different types of balls – including fish and vegetarian – and for those who feel minced balls aren’t very appealing, Polpetteria also offers ‘pizze, vin e vintage’. Yes, the decoration is for sale too.
Of course – with eyes bigger than our stomach – we had to order the ‘Mixed Roast': a sample of 5 different polpette; pork/beef and plain beef variations. Very savoury, but with meatballs the size of burgers, it might be a tad too ambitious for the ladies.
Nevertheless, the setting is great, overlooking the Via Santa Filomena, and the food will lay a good soil for what the rest of the evening has to bring. For sure.
