Delightful cuisine

We dined at the outside terrace. The fish was great and the service accurate. We can recommend this restaurant which gives an innovative interpretation of classical Sicilian meals

Oinos is a welcoming restaurant in one of Syracuse's city center main streets and it should be included in every guide to Sicily. The prices are excellent as is the seafood - highly recommended. The service was perfect and our hosts were extremely attentive. The chef (a lovely man) made his rounds of the tables and was there to wave... More

Ivo Vatti sold his business....unfortunately we were not aware of that.....the new owners have changed the concept of this restaurant to turn to a not-gatronomic restaurant. If pasta with salmon or scaloppine al limone are dishes which are of interest to you, or fish cooked simply by the grill , you will not be frustrated the way we were, since... More

On the quiet side of Ortigia, with an elegant outdoor terrace in one of the city's most beautiful squares, Oinos is one of those places we would willingly return to. Good service and excellent Sicilian fare, the place is discreet (no airs of trendiness or nouvelle cuisine!) and the value is excellent. A must if you're in the area.

This is a family run restaurant, serving delicious Sicilian food and run by lovely, caring people, who are generous to a fault. Don't miss it. Great value for money as well

We came accross this restaurant by chance on our first day of holidays, but remained so pleased with both service and quality of food, that no other reccomendation seemed to be up to our expectation. There was a good variety of excellent quality dishes on the menu, and when eventually we asked them to prepare some typical Sicilian dishes outside... More

In a town well served with fish restaurants you have to try really hard with your fish dishes here - & this place did. Had a fish I'd never heard of called spatula on the menu & which is also known as scabbard. White fish fillets in a simple creamy white wine sauce with lovely mashed spuds. Followed by the... More

I went into Oinos on three different occasions and my memories of Ortigia are linked with the dining experiences I enjoyed in this authentic and elegant restaurant. The food exceeds expectations, due also to the freshness of the food, locally sourced, complimented by the creative and unusual preparation and by the really rich offer of wines that the sommelier is...

This restaurant may not be the cheapest in Syracusa, but I reckon it has to be one of the best. It's well off the tourist trail. The service is first-rate, and the food even better. Excellent Sicilian wines, delicious food, a beautiful setting….what more could you want? One American couple turned up but left because it was too expensive for... More
