Top choice bar in Catania

Wines by the glass, draught and bottled beer and an ample cocktail list are offered at this delightful wine bar with tables invitingly spread out across the tree-shaded flagstones of a sweet backstreet square. It doubles as a cafe in the morning, but really gets packed with locals from aperitivo time onward.

If you're hungry, scan the backboard for a decent selection of light meals (from €4), including spinach and gorgonzola quiche and a cheese platter.
