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 -... More

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.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our local host and it's a perfect fit! Truly Italian/Sicilian cuisine, nice atmosphere and lively, summer terrace. We had a funny chat with the owner. Prices are good, portions are respectable and the staff very friendly. Highly recommended!

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
