If you came to Catania you must stop in one of the best "gelateria" in town!! Cakes as well are really delightful...”7 Veli” chocolate cake is my favorite taste.

Finally a good place where to eat gelato in Catania! There is not the sea spot but believe me the quality of the gelato it's all worth it!!! Ottimo posto dove mangiare un ottimo gelato, tra i pochi a Catania... Non ci sarà il mare ma ne vale la pena! Buon gelato!
