In the heart of Catania, a warm atmosphere reigns at this wine bar, making it the success that it is. After work or for a cocktail, the long wooden bar and the modern yet rustic decor-where wood and steel dominate-invite you to relax in the well-lit ground floor.
A black staircase leads upstairs from the main floor to a mezzanine where you will find more tables, chairs and upholstered benches arranged for a cosy atmosphere. Neighbourhood residents like to remake the world here while sipping a drink. A wide selection of some of the most famous wines of Sicily are available-to be enjoyed in moderation of course-from Carricante, produced on the slopes of Mount Etna, to Frappato, with delicate aromas of strawberries, raspberries and mint, not to forget Cerasuolo di Vittoria, with an elegant and refined texture.
If you are a bit hungry, you will be spoiled for choice among bruschetta, mixed salads, plates of local hams and deli meats or a soup-such as lentil, Etna chestnuts and Black Nebrodi ham. Enjoy listening to the music, pleasant without being invasive and before leaving, you too will want to shout out the name of the place: ‘Perbacco!' (‘Wow!')
