The menu is mostly centered around sea food with extensive wine list. However the dishes we ordered were just average. The Sicilian wine we chose was very good though.

We walked in rather early (before 8 pm) so the place was rather deserted. The service was flawless and we got our meal rather quickly. The food was good but given the price tag i would not say amazing, however the cheese platter was incredible. Try the second young cheese from the left with onion marmelate, that almist brought tears... More

we ate here twice in four nights. The range and quality of the fish we ate was excellent. The wine list was huge but had good stuff at reasonable prices if you look carefully

In one of the side stree, in a vaulted refurbished old house, this restaurants presents everything seriously: waiters are dressed in black, wear ties and jackets. The food is locally sourced, fresh and excellently prepared. Good wine list. You can obtain half portions in order to taste more dishes. We had our fist soup made out of almond and it... More

Setting is amazing, tables are spaced far apart, music is soothing, service is impeccable, wine list is volumnous -- and the seafood is great. Not the best food in Siracusa (that's a block away, at Imbesi Angela on Via Veneto 11), but well-prepared. But after the buildup, the location, and prices, perhaps a bit disappointing,

We stopped in this restaurant for lunch; we were the only ones there for most of the time. However, we were served with the best of care. Our meal, seafood was expertly prepared and presented. We would recommend this restaurant to all; perhaps a splurge for some or a special occasion .

On being seated we were each given a glass of prosecco as a welcome drink on the house. The English version of the menu made it easy for us to order our meals. The staff were helpful in recommending complementing wines for our meal. Indeed the food here is truly wonderful and the service complements it beautifully.
