Great pasta, not the cheapest one but very tasty and - the scenery. Very beautiful seaside terrace which you find walking around the corner - can´t walk through house because of the kitchen. Maybe piazza side is good in the evenings but lunch time: the terrace by the sea!

The location is excellent but cannot say the same for the food I am afraid. The pasta was bland and the rest seemed like a half hearted effort. In Italy I expect pasta cooked far better than what I am used to at home ! The waiters seemed lost and the food was not placed on the table at the... More

If you see my reviews, I always value the overall experience. In this case the overall experience is great. You are on the square of Marzamemi, and it is better than a movie set because it's the real thing. You sit down at twilight, take a sip of cool white sicilian, mineral wine, and relaz. Look around. Feel the place.... More

After 10 days eating and drinking our way around Sicily, we drove down to see Marzamemi, a growing tourist attraction. La Cialoma's seaside location and bright flower-pots provide a very pleasant ambience. The ristorante was fairly crowded, so the service was (understandably) not swift - but the food was some of the best we'd tasted. That said, the prices (while... More

Such a lovely setting and excellent food in Marzamemi. We ate so well and were spoilt for choice in terms of what was on the menu. Would have loved to go back to try more.

We stopped in Marzamemi on an excursion out of Siracusa, and discovered this place. The location is great, with a view of the sea. Slightly windy, but its right on the ocean. Marzamemi is a "Tonnara", a small fishing village where they catch tuna. The food was great. The waiters were friendly and attentive, but as with most Sicilian waiters... More

Had I read the disappointing reviews on TripAdvisor, we would probably have given this place a wide berth. But, I hadn't read them and we had lunch here today. The door is covered in good food award stickers etc. and I am left feeling slightly puzzled about the mixed reviews. We would have been happy to sit in the picturesque... More

We had higher hopes for lunch at this restaurant than were realised. The room is bright, clean and attractive, and it had a good review in the Rough Guide. Starters--sweet and sour melanzane rolls with cheese and burrata, and artichoke hearts with a cheese fonduta--were first rate. The main course of two grilled fish was a total disappointment. The fish... More
