This is a cozy restaurant right in the middle of everything. We explained to the waiter that we are vegetarians, and she was very helpful with telling us what we should order. We ordered the vegetable anti pasti plate which had a nice selection of vegetables cooked in various ways. All four of us followed up with four different pastas,... More

Seems like a nice cosy place, but the food didn't turn out all that great. My girlfriend had a very nice orange-fennel salad, the rest I don't even remember that well. The wine I ordered was not there, the replacement not so great. My girlfriend liked the place quite well, but I just wasn't so impressed.

This is the best home cooked meal I've eaten in Sicily. Marchello recommended the to no with peppers when we were there last night. Previously we only shared a piccolo Antipasti but tonight was the full McCoy and boy was it good. People it was GOOD. If you do not want to be disappointed please book in advance.

During this visit to Syracuse we were rather determined to eat our dinner in Gazza Ladra, as upon previous one we were dissapointed to learn it opens only for dinner (which sadly was not an option as we were with a baby and had to go back to Taormina). This time we slept on Ortigia, and have booked the table.... More

We managed to squeeze into this small hosteria after they very kindly reserved a table for us. It is one of those places where one just HAVE to taste a little bit more of all the amazing things on offer. We spent a very enjoyable evening and can totally recommend this little restaurant whose owner takes great pride and delight... More

I booked an evening meal at La Gazza Nedra for an evening meal based on previous reviews. The restaurant is small and is family run. We shared anti pasta and a caprese salad to start which were tasty. Our menu choices for main course weren't available so we both had spaghetti. They were good but not particularly interesting or memorable.... More

This seems to be a family run operation. Super chill, easy atmosphere. The menu seems to change as to fit whatever they have available at the time. The food was very good, better than most, though not out-of-this-world great. That said, the intimacy of this place makes it a real nice change of pace, as an osteria should, from more... More

We were quite full after a good lunch. Had a good siesta and were walking into town. As we walked past a shop selling English books I had an idea. I was too tired to parla Italiano. I asked the lady if she knew of a place where we could eat something light. Lucky to get there early as all... More
