This restaurant is situated away from the popular tourist area and clearly tries to set itself apart from the multitude of restaurants in Ortigia in which it mainly succeeds. The interior has character and charm and the staff are helpful and attentive. The menu is extensive and the house wines are both local and good. The only problem for us... More

An expensive vine restaurant with a nice interior giving an absolute feeling of being inside a vine cellar. It is rather costly there though, the staff seems to be a bit snobbish - they need even a name of the hotel to reserve a table! The vine list looks like a Big Soviet Encyclopedia volume however the dishes are more... More

We had lunch here on Monday. Very quiet, but great service. All dishes were freshly made. Pasta was perfect. Sauces amazing and fish very well prepared.

We liked that the food was modern in a lovely old space and a fantastic wine list. The prawns with ricotta was unusual but lovely. The pork and rabbit dishes were outstanding.

We had high expectations for this restaurant, based on reviews we read. Our disappointment started even before we entered the restaurant, as we passed smelly garbage bins just outside the entrance. Although the pictures are of the restaurant look lovely, the lighting in the restaurant needs major improvement. It desperately needs sconces or other indirect lighting; instead, it's overhead candelabras... More

Lovely ambience but frankly a little too pompous for our taste. Not great value for money and full of well heeled travellers. Not our most authentic experience from our time in Siracusa. More entertaining dining experiences available.

Although the restaurant was busy the food was very strange and over seasoned. I enjoy trying new tastes but this was just weird. There was no atmosphere and the waiting staff were efficient rather than friendly. An eclectic mix of customers made for plenty to talk about. Expensive for what it delivered.

I called in at about 4 p.m. to make a table booking for 8:30 that evening, so our reservation was very "last minute". The man who took my booking was charming, with a wry sense of humour. When we arrived, the very experienced staff seemed instantly able to "sum up"-- just by looking at us-- what sort of budget THEY... More

Had a most agreeable lunch here and found the food to be most excellent, in fact likely the best meal I had in Sicily. The food is upscale but with local touches. The wine selection is massive and all of wine I do not know. The owner was most helpful and recommended some very tasty juice!

The waiters were not very friendly or helpful in our ordering of food or wine. I would even go so far as to say they were hostile towards us. The food was too complicated for my taste and fussy in a bad way. The combinations of ingredients did not do the food justice.
