We went to this place because it was recommended by our accomodation owner. Unfortunately they had none of the seven or eight craft beers they had on their drinks menu. The food was OK, but we didn’t feel particularly welcome, especially when we waited for...our coffee order for 20 minutes and it never arrived.More

I went to Nievski 2 - a pretty basic outdoor seating situation - for a beer. I ordered a bottle of Semidorato - bog-standard beer that costs €1 in the shops. Nievski (who apparently have 'socialist' leanings') charged me €5.00 for the same. Absolute RIP-OFF...merchants! A V O I D.More

I came tempted by vegan and bio options. Food is very mediocre. The plate is full of highly processed ready to buy vegan meat-like and cheese-like bites. They could get away with it for breakfast maybe. They clearly don't understand how to COOK a vegan...meal. I wonder if they serve fried ready processed foods from a supermarket in other meals. We waited for it for a very long time and then sat forever looking at empty plates. No service, no question, no menu in English. We paid quite a lot anyway. On top of the food being a dissapointment, multiple people from the service smoke inside the dinning area and inside the kitchen. Cigarette smoke and smell is everywhere. The last "star" is this place being full of communism supporting paintings and pictures...More

If you are going out in Catania in the evening do not miss this bar. Very lively atmosphere, good cocktails, friendly staff. We will come back again for sure.

Central location. We had dinner on the terrace, which is in a pedestrian street, next to large stairs. Very nice. Food was simple but good (without being remarkable). dessert (tiramisu) was not good (far too heavy). Service was attentive and friendly. I would give 3...and 1/2 stars if that was possible.More

This place is located on the steps, so would not be obvious to find, but well worth seeking out. We had their vegetarian tasting plate which was varied and delicious. Very affordable. Was very happy to find it! Recommended.

We took some fried fishes. No taste at all, not well cooked. Compared to some other restaurants we have been for the same kind of dishes this one take the last position.

Close to our hotel and a great place to start the evening with a drink.~Sitting on the chairs and tables set out on the steps just watching the world go by. Unsure of the menus as didn't seem much on there and think you probably...have to ask for specific daily specials but a great wine list.More

Nice, went for dinner and sat opposite a mural of great communists and socialists, we managed to get up to 15 matches. interesting local wine list and knowlegeable staff. Some of the diners were obviously old trots in a place they felt happy in. Chilled...and worth a visitMore

Interesting bar, down the old steps, socialist/communist themed so loads of cool decor and interesting crowd. Generally people will hang out and mingle on the steps a bit higher up so is a good spot to meet people. We couldn't get served for ages though...service is quite poor.More

Our first evening in Catania we finished check-in about 19.30 and needed a light snack and a drink. This was provided swiftly and efficiently for 30 euros - two bottles of local wine included. The next evening we went there for pre-dinner refreshment and then...something more substantial. Food OK, service very good and a big plus is that this street is purely pedestrian! We would go again to enjoy the ambience and service. Food?More
