Quite a nice little cafe, we had some good coffee and also a couple of cannoli that were tasty. It's just near the cathedral and a nice place to stop and sit for a while.

Our last day in Catania we stopped here for a drink and pastry. The service was excellent. The pastry delicious. We were not rushed at all and had ample time to enjoy the Duomo Piazza view. Great host.
