We stayed next door in the hostel and had dinner here on our second night. After that experience we spent every other evenings here. This must be the coolest place in Catania. It is a hub for locals, so after a while it gets crowdy and not easy to get a table. They have a wide selection of Sicilian meals,... More

Special bar, friendly service and a wide choice of beers. Visit the cave, where you can see the underground stream!

We had drinks at Agora upstairs - they have a great happy hour special and many very cool choices for cocktails and then had dinner downstairs. The service was great, they were so nice and checked on us a lot. The restaurant is very cool, it's in a cave underground with a river running through it! The atmosphere is great,... More

Strolling around town found this place on a Sunday and they happen to be having vegan Sunday lunch set menu for 12 €. It was really good! The presentation, quality and taste of the food was on point, it took some time to get the food but it was worth it. The service was very friendly, the staff spoke very... More

We've eaten various times here, once to try the €12 vegan degustation for lunch on a Sunday and just another random evening for dinner....the food is fabulous, there are always vegan options on the menu including DESSERT (this is important to me!) and the staff are great and know what they are talking about. Never disappoints! If you are around... More

By accident we ended up here as we had another plans, but we met friends and they took us there. The food was very good, drinks as well. Service was a bit slow, but mainly for paying.... but no wonder as it is the "top" bussiest place in Catania nowadays.

We visited this bar/restaurant primarily because we heard it had an underground river and wanted to check it out. We only had drinks so cannot comment on the food. Drinks had a good selection and were the best price found so far in Italy. The service was excellent and fast and the place was very popular on a busy Friday.... More
