Interesting bar, down the old steps, socialist/communist themed so loads of cool decor and interesting crowd. Generally people will hang out and mingle on the steps a bit higher up so is a good spot to meet people. We couldn't get served for ages though service is quite poor.

Our first evening in Catania we finished check-in about 19.30 and needed a light snack and a drink. This was provided swiftly and efficiently for 30 euros - two bottles of local wine included. The next evening we went there for pre-dinner refreshment and then something more substantial. Food OK, service very good and a big plus is that this street is purely pedestrian! We would go again to enjoy the ambience and service. Food?

The food and location is really good. We had fresh fish, and it was the best ever. Service is just very effecient, nothing more. The street is really nice.

We walked around Catania for hours trying to find a restaurant that didn't cater solely for English-speaking tourists and found this place not ten metres from our hotel entrance after having given up. This is not gourmet food by any means but it is honest, quirky and tasty. The owner was very knowledgeable about local wine. We were surprised to find seitan steaks on the menu; these and the eggplant parmigiana along with a hearty potato, green bean and boiled egg salad were delicious.
