Went here because of Trip advisor rating. Nice place to hide from the sun, pleasant staff. But both cups of our cappuccino were very average (especially considering higher price). Ice cream was icy and not fat. Toilet is a bit smelly.

We shopped down Via Etna and visited the cathedral. Needs refreshment. Our table could not have been better positioned. While enjoying the best gelato yet, having time to examine the fountain and facades I took great pictures.

The Cathedrals Bar charged me 2.50 Euro for 150ml of Coca Cola Zero. They called it a "piccola" Coca Cola. Unfortunately the bill was "grande". It happened on April 26 at 1555 hrs.

From the heart of catania and traditional hysterical fish market, and middle of the beautiful fountain"amenano", near to the"liotro", born a historical bar. Raise from the experience and love of the people, with the atmosphere to be proud of. With all the hand chosen product from our own sicily. Not to mention with more then 200 meters of hall room.
