"First...In San Berillo District" is a new little pub, located in the city center, beside "via San Giuliano", in a very suggestive square called "Piazza delle Belle". Before, San Berillo was one of the largest red light district in the Southern Italy, nowadays the square has reborn with the name "Piazza goliarda sapienza".

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!
