Popular Restaurants in Messina: 
 
Beside the square of the front entrance to Messina's town hall, Le Due Sorelle occupies a long room that contains less than 10 tables. Walls are covered with wine bottles. The traditional, robust fare includes two different versions of couscous; veal with roasted vegetables; a padellata di pesce (panful of fish) with vegetables; and a full roster of house-made desserts. The extensive wine cellar offers more the 500 types of Italian wines, some of them champions of the area. Hours are: Mon-Fri 1-3pm and 8pm-midnight; Sat-Sun 8pm-midnight. Reservations are recommended on Fri-Sat nights. The restaurant is closed for the month of August. Prices for main courses range from $13-$21. MasterCard and Visa are accepted. Le Due Sorelle is located at Piazza Municipio 4, Messina. The phone number is 090-44720.
 
The Jolly Restaurant dello Stretto has a panoramic view the ships coming in from Reggio Calabria. For starters, select an array of smoked local fish; there's nothing better on the menu.

Part of the unique charm of Al Padrino is its rough-edged, unpretentious nature. Basic décor and tables that are hot and cramped are the order of the day, yet this establishment has managed to flourish for a quarter of a century. The kitchen produces Messinese-style food that includes a creamy homemade maccheroni; spaghetti with shrimp and zucchini; swordfish meatballs with a fresh tomato and olive sauce; and many different preparations of beef. Flavors are robust and hearty, portions large. Get ready for loud voices, an in-your-face welcome, and a small glimpse into the working-class of Messina. Hours are:Mon-Fri noon-3pm and 7-11pm; Sat noon-3pm. The restaurant is closed in August. Prices range from $10-$20. MasterCard and Visa are accepted. Al Padrino is located at Via Santa Cecilia 54-56, Messina. The phone number is 090-2921000and the website is www.alpadrino.it.
