Great Food In A Cheery Atmosphere

It was a very wet day and we were desperately looking to get out of the rain and find somewhere to get lunch, preferably with an authentic Sicilian atmosphere. I peered through the glass door and the restaurant seemed to be full so I turned away but the proprietor rushed out and offered us the last... read more

In the heart of Ortigya, a wonderful restaurant, nice attention of the waiters and delicious dishes. We ate scalops with mushrooms and canoli, with wine. We spent euros 33. The menu is very interesting to choose....and you see that every dish looks well made and tempting. Go!!!!

Trattoria Il Cenacolo is the perfect place to go to if you like good traditional food in a family-friendly atmosphere! Although they are busy, they make you feel welcomed as a personal guest and not only a tourist. Located in a little Piazza not far from the main church and town center, it is much quieter than on the main... More

I have visited Il Cenacolo twice and both times it delivered on all fronts. This restaurants is a no-frills restaurants which focuses on what it does best: the food. Will definitely be returning every time I visit Siracusa.

We went to this restaurant because they were the only one in town that serves pasta at 12 o'clock for lunch. The hardest thing in Italie for me is to find a nice restaurant open in the time you want to eat :) still they are serving Pasta Norma and all other types of classical pastas.. You can gibe them...

The 2 waiters were eating in the backroom in between serving. Service was slow, and the food was nothing special. There are plenty of better places to east in Siracusa.

We found this by accident as we wanted to get away from the Duomo Square, which, whilst very beautiful, had a touristic air to it. The restaurant was reasonably busy when we arrived and a queue started shortly after we sat down, which remained and grew as the evening wore on. The location is lovely on a summer evening -...

I highly recommend this restaurant to the people who are looking for good Italian food at an affordable price. The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was very 'Sicilian'.

We chose this place for a great location and cozy atmosphere, however it was the biggest mistake as this was our worst ever experienced Italian cousine... It was the last day of our vacation in Sicily and every place we visited for a dinner was excellent, so we chose this place without a big research. Carbonara is one of my... More

After wandering Syracuse for hour or 2 in the heat we stumbled upon this trattoria. Great find and a memorable lunch. The starter to share is brilliant, the flavours were outstanding. I highly recommend that you have the starter to share. Our pastas were lovely. Service was good. One of our best meals in sicily to date.
