If you have to take just one lunch or one dinner in Syracusa, try that trattoria. If you're inside, you can watch the cook and her helpers preparing the dishes just after you've ordered them. The food is really fresh and tasty, the local wine very good, the desserts are awesome, and the waiters are nice. I've tried the Orange... More

Stopped by this trattoria based on the advice of our guide book and were quite satisfied. We were greeted at the door, and enjoyed excellent treatment by all the staff. Had decided to eat inside because the winds had just picked up - it was a little noisy, but was enjoyable noise, the chatter of the staff, and lively, international... More

This was a really pleasant experience and everything tasty. We had the carprese salad, then swordfish Siciliana and the grilled chicken breast, which was sliced. It was all very well cooked. We then shared a chocolate soufflé which was amazing, highly recommended.

The menu gives you meat options as well . Real italian restaurant feeling . Far away from others touristic and expensive restaurants in Ortigia. It was like eating back home in my house... More

A welcoming dining experience at a restaurant that serves delicious sicilian cuisine. We had Bistecca alla siciliana and scallopine ai fungi. The siciliana is a beef dish with mint vinegar sauce which was a surprise and not to our taste but the scallopine veal dish was wonderful. I might order it again in another restaurant. The local wine was very... More

Great service. Delicious food. Had bruschetta starter followed by roast chicken and steak with a mixed salad. Reasonable prices for Sicily and we are going back again tomorrow night. Friendly, great food and reasonably priced. Hard to beat !

We have just had a lovely tasty meal here. Bruschetta and caponata to start. Both very simple and tasty. Then spaghetti carbonara and spaghetti with sardine sauce. Very very good. Good wine for 10 euro a bottle. Small trattoria, off the main streets and easily overlooked. But please don't walk past. This is really good honest food with a very... More

Il Cenacolo Trattoria was an amazing resturaunt. Located in Syracuse, I Cenacolo served great dishes. I ate a pasta with Sicilian pecorino. It looked small, but covered the plate when spread out. The waiter was very kind. In the resturaunt you could see the chefs in action behind the counter.

Being a spanish that loves eating and it is very exigent with Sicilian girlfriend I must say that this restaurant in Siracusa didn't disappoint. I am use to reject mentally restaurants with english menus and flags of various nations, because at least in Spain this means restaurant for tourist and low quality. BUt do not let yourself get deceived by... More
