We had wondered around for a while on a MOnday night looking for something decent after some disappointing meals. We weren't dressed for a posh restaurant like this and felt a bit "out of our league " at first. We quickly realised that the staff were really nice and the food was going to be far far above other meals... More

Great experience: nicely decorated place in a beautiful ancient building in Ortigia. Amazing food, ambitious couplings respecting Sicilian culinary tradition. I'd love to come back soon!

In a setting of a former 15th century church, you get to taste delicious Sicilian seafood, paired with exquisite local wine. The attention to detail, use of quality ingredients and pairing of unusual flavors, such as almond cream with fish makes this an unforgettable gourmet experience.

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
