We're sorry for the misunderstanding, but prices were written on the menú that we gave to you and are equal for everyone.

A great place to have a chat and a drink in Catania. Young (but not too much), smart, enjoyable, good beers, basically...just lovely!! If you are traveling with friends or alone (to make new ones) go definitely there!
