Very nice clam pasta dish

Just what I needed, simple tasty pasta dish. Giant serve. Although it's packet pasta and I found an excessive amount of empty clam shells. Nonetheless the prices are reasonable, but there is a 1.5 euro surcharge per person.

Dined here last week. Fantastic food and staff! Delightful outdoor setting with friendly attentive service and a great menu. I had their grilled octopus on a bed of potato, absolutely delicious. Cannot recommend highly enough. There are many great places to dine in Syracuse and this one certainly tops our list!

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!!!!

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 table which we happily... More

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...
