Cocktail Bar

“Here at night you'll find plenty of folks drinking inside and outside this place. Especially suited for younger folks but you can find older people drinking there as well. You can have wine and cocktails here. The wines are natural wines, kinda of mixed quality. Cocktails are better. The situation and the atmosphere is wonderful, worth a visit. Oh, you can eat there as well, local food in small dishes.”

Cocktail Bar

“DRINK PUB. (english) Drink and food by sea, on the main pier of the port. In the evening it is crowdy by yonge people, a rend place of the new "movida". (italiano) Drink e cibo e musica in riva al mare, al molto centrale del porto. La sera si riempie di giovani ed è un luogo di incontro trend della movida catanese. La location merita senz'altro almeno un drink.”
