Location and contact

From the heart of catania and traditional hysterical fish market, and middle of the beautiful fountain"amenano", near to the"liotro", born a historical bar. Raise from the experience and love of the people, with the atmosphere to be proud of. With all the hand chosen product from our own sicily. Not to mention with more then 200 meters of hall room.

Nice situation on the cathedral square corner, but its convenience is its curse. There were too many customers, and not enough staff to cope, so a mix of coffee, juice and ice cream, took rather a long time to arrive. We enjoyed the spectacle of...More

Nice food, service and prices could not make up for the fact that most of the tables are virtually on a main road. The exhaust fumes from cars and mopeds going by are overwhelming. Get a table indoors

What a fantastic way to start the day! I had my morning cappuccino and cornetto al miele at the Cathedral Bar for two straight days. The outdoor tables facing the piazza were definitely a plus. My favorite outdoor table was the one facing the fountain...More

During our 3 day stay in Catania in mid October we had breakfast here every day and loved it. The cornetti con crema are delicious and so are the nutty pastries. The staff are exceptionally friendly and by the third day had anticipated our order....More

Went here because of Trip advisor rating. Nice place to hide from the sun, pleasant staff. But both cups of our cappuccino were very average (especially considering higher price). Ice cream was icy and not fat. Toilet is a bit smelly.

Our day began and ended with Cathedrals Bar in Piazza Duomo. Our day began with great handshake from the owner and smiles all around from the staff. We would start our culinary experience with something from here, which was an espresso with a warm cornetto...More
