Cool setting

You invariably find the best places on the last night!
We loved The San Berrillo district
The first lounge bar was good too
Really enjoyed my Mojito with Williams Pear - I need to show them how to make a Bloody Mary though...
I have to say I think Collage up off Via Etnea beats it for drinks if not the setting

Aug 2019 • Family
I love to go to San Birillo District and First is my favourite place to sit for a beer and food. Nothing is ordinary and the service is the best in Europe😬every waiter smiles and is so friendly. II wish I could find always same service in Holland. Bravi ragazzi. Keep up with the good job! See you in December

We found this place accidentally, hidden cozy lounge with friendly staff and great pizza and variety of cocktails/wine.

The margeritha pizza was delicious with crunchy thin crust, the apperol cocktail was great.

Hidden gem
May 2019 • Couples
First is a little off the beaten track, and not that easy to find until you hit the signs and then you cannot miss it. The side roads leading to it are beautiful and full of plants hanging from the walls. When you get to First, the trend continues, and the is even a little alcove with a bench with flowers all around. Such a beautiful place!

The food is cheaply priced, with starters, 2 pizzas, a class of wine and a beer being around 30 euro.

It was so good, I had to go back! It's one of those places you can just sit down with a drink and watch the world go by.

Excellent cocktails
Apr 2019 • Couples
We went for a drink early evening, they really do know their mixology. Thoroughly enjoyed the cocktails and service was friendly. We also had a salad and a meat/cheese board. The salad was disappointing (a mixing bowl full of tomatoes with some chopped onion and grated cheese on top) but we enjoyed the meat and cheese.

Amazing, lively, friendly and delightful
Nov 2018 • Couples
This is a little oasis of friendly atmosphere, good food, cocktails, beers and anything else you might like to drink. It’s buzzing in places and peaceful and quiet in others. Once the red light area of Catania now a haven for young, old, those seeking excitement and those who want a gentle and peaceful evening drink

Hidden surprise
Oct 2018 • Business
I guess with Tripadvisor nothing is hidden anymore, but this bar is not straightforward to find without some help.
Once you find it, it is a little retreat from the hustle of the city. Albeit maybe not late at night or on the weekend when it fills up.
Eclectic in design, in a former rundown part of town, its a great place to escape for a drink.
Food is available, as well as the attached restaurant in the square.
Service very pleasant and a good selection of drinks available.
Definitely worth finding as you make your way around Catania.
