Castello Fiorentino has been by far our favorite joint in Siracusa for 13 years, due to the quality of the pizza and the great staff team, so full of energy. But now they have "passed to the next generation", as the family says: the staff has been replaced with lower-paid persons, the pizzaiolo has been replaced, and the result is... More

During my 30 day trip to Sicily this restaurant wins the award of the absolute worst. I wish I had read the trip advisor reviews before sitting down. The people who rate it as terrible had experiences like mine. Overpriced low quality food with rude waiters. Don't go here.

The waiters were rude, arrogant, condescending pigs and the restaurant produces very average food. Should have walked out right away. Forgot our entrees and gave us free granita to make up for it. We dropped our 23 Euro for the bill and ran out. We ate around the corner 3 nights in a row at La Puita and the food... More

The worst rip off in Syracuse. The waiters were so busy trying to attract custom that once they had trapped us they couldn't be bothered with us. In fact, they only half laid our places on table linen that looked and smelt as if it had been used already. When we requested a fork or a glass they (repeatedly) forgot... More

It was one of the worst restaurant during or 15 days in Sicily. I have never ever seen a Menu that apart from the coperte had a 20% service fee on top of the invoice. Even though the 20% was written in the menu it is smth very rare and for the mos it does not exist in any restaurant... More

I spotted this place down a side street and decided to give it a try. Good choice of food and at great prices. Very speedy service but never got desserts here. Not sure if they had sold out or just didnt have any made? However on both visits we were given small shot glass sized Lemon Sorbet which was great... More

I don't want to write much but just to say that there are way better places than this pizzeria in Syracuse. The pizza is very average (in fact heavy) and the staff is really rude. The waiter didn't bring the wine that we wanted and when we kindly asked if he could change the bottle (before he opens) he took... More

Probably the worst service I have experienced at a restaurant, followed by a compulsory 20% (TWENTY PER CENT) service charge on the whole bill. The waiter was rude, dumping plates of food in front of us without a word, and all this despite the fact the main courses arrived 10-15 minutes apart from one another. A tourist trap and a... More

We were recommended this place by locals who worked at a bar we frequented, and arrived just in time to get one of the last outdoor tables available (charmingly placed along a house wall in a narrow street). We ordered a bottle of prosecco and some starters, bruschette with tomato and bresaola with rocket and parmesan, and both were yummy... More
