This was a very affordable restaurant in Siracusa

We passed by this as we walked from our B&B to the town center and saw the trip advisor sticker on the door. It was a good choice for our lunch. Prices were great and the meal was good. Would definitely go back.

We arrvied late for lunch even by Italian standards but they served us no problem. The pizzas were really juicy and we couldn't scoff them down fast enough. We had walked past this restaurant before and it was always mobbed which can't be a bad sign. There is a not negligible service charge but it was very good value all... More

Recommended by the B&B we are staying at. It was full of people and looked fairly authentic enough. But the pizza was rather average, we only had a margherita but I had much much better in London (Princi, Obika and even Firezza). They were also very keen to kick us out, I had just put the last piece of pizza... More

No matter what the food (which was quite ordinary!) and no matter what the quality of the service (which was totally ordinary) to receive a bill with a 30% surcharge on account of "servizio" (20%) and coperto (1.5euros per person) is -- in my humble yet very well travelled opinion-- totally outrageous. This means our ordinary, and probably substandard pizzas... More

The food was ok and our waiters were ok but the girl in charge was more interested in her phone than the customers. Our service was fine until we asked for the bill and then we had to wait for her to take a break before we could have it. Other reviewers have mentioned the 20% service charge which is... More

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
