Beautiful food! Laid back atmosphere. Lots of locals eating here. My boyfriend got mushroom risotto as first course which was so good and a mixed meat dish for second course which was equally good and comprised of a tender pork chop and steak. I ordered a pizza with parma ham and mushrooms. The pizza was super yummy and pizza oven... More

I ate at Castello Fiorentino yesterday because I remembered it from my first trip to Siracusa three years ago. Yesterday I was there with my girlfriend and we just wanted a nice pizza. The pizza arrived literally five minutes after we had ordered it, but unfortunately it was not very good. It seemed to me as if the oven had... More

I found this place by walking around. It seems to be more of a pizza place. I didn't have pizza. I had pasta and salad. It was sos so. Maybe the pizza was OK but I wouldn't return for the pasta or salad. Service wasn't great either.

This place is simply horrible. Got the gut feeling to walk out after sitting down - should have listened to my instinct. Sloppy staff playing on the computer. Disinterested. The pizza was OK but it all went downhill fast from there. The Filetto (Fillet Steak) was a peice of gristly stewing steak which had clearly been softened in Bi Carb... More

Rushed service despite having said we wanted a a little more time .Despite being popular with the Italian community the tv seems to be of greater importance than the customer.The Prawn cocktail was positively underwhelming and the Bresaola and cheese was something a first term student at a catering college could produce .The swordfish was only average but the veal...

This is a favourite with the young locals who gather in the street of a weekend evening waiting for a table. The pizzas are said to be the best in Ortigia and are very good, but lacals seem to be given preference for tables, and some have reported the service is disappointingly slow. Great if you are in a young... More

What a shame. Food good, wine good, nice atmosphere. Well priced. All good until you get the bill which, as others have noted, includes both a cover charge per person (fine - that's the tip in my book) AND an outrageous 20% cover charge!!! We left less than this and the waitress didn't even question it which in a way... More

We were looking for a cheap and good pizzeria for dinner one night and was recommended this place. We put our names down on the waiting list and were told to wait 45 mins. We came back and had to wait another 20 mins before our table was ready. Granted it was a Sat night and they did give us... More

We had lunch here in December in an almost empty restaurant: the town was very quiet. We ordered a selection of prima, secondi and vegetables. The pasta and especially the pizza were excellent with a soft delicate dough. The fish was ok; simple selection of swordfish, prawn and octopus all grilled though given the fish market next door we hoped... More
