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.

Just came back from Sicily. One of the many restaurants I ate in was this one, Don Camillo, in Ortigia. I had heard that it is the best restaurant in Ortigia for authentic Sicilian food. The room is very pretty. The service was OK. The worst part was the food, which was overpriced for the quality. This restaurant is known... More

Nice but lacks personal touch and atmosphere a bit. Really fine but I wouldn't probably return as there are other good choices

Excellent food, refined tastes based on local ingredients and seasonal fish however portions are rather small. Beautiful location in Maestranza street which is close to the centre of Ortigia, historical architecture with impressive arches. Service good but could be better. Prices on the higher side.

Don Camillo is that rarity, both formal and yet relaxed. The decor is traditional and comfortable, with a rustic stone-arched interior, with walls covered in bottles of exquisite Italian wines. The menu has a broad range of a la carte choices but to keep matters simple, my wife and I both chose the fish tasting menu. After a complimentary glass... More

We went there thinking that the reviews were correct and amazed with all the prizes at the entrance, but I had the worst gratinate shrimps which tasted literally like soak in cheap oil and bread crumbs. When I asked if they could change my dish because it was horrible the manager started arguing that they were fine and that I... More
