Nice place and good menu

Somewhat expensive, not much, but good cuisine, so I am satisfied with the choice. We ate 6 dishes, and ended up with a smile.

It's possibly a little unfair to go with an average score here, it isnt a bad restaurant by any means, it's just that compared to some of the amazing food we enjoyed during a fortnight in Sicily, this one thrilled the least. Service was faultless, quick & friendly from informed staff, many of them French, with good English skills. The... More

All the options were very expensive, so we decided to order just one starter to share and 2 main dishes. Good lobster and salad nothing special. Very good wine options. Service was far from good but the local was fully booked so maybe the situation surpassed them. Good place to have dinner, specially in outside tables, for romantic time.

We walked in without a booking about five minutes before the place was packed. Not just with tourists who have read the Lonely Planet review, but lots of locals as well it seemed. Interesting mix of Italian and French, the food was absolutely fresh - the mussels particularly plump and absolutely delicious. The lobster salad was disappointing - very fresh,... More

We were recommended to eat at this restaurant by the owners of a new bar (See review of Cortile Verga) and were so pleased we asked! We arrived without a reservation and were lucky to be fitted in (I would not take this chance again and so recommend that you book ahead). We sat in a sweet, narrow, courtyard to... More

After reading the reviews on TA, we expected a much better meal. Nothing we ordered really stood out and some things were really disappointing. For example, we ordered the eggplant millefeuille - sounded interesting. It came as a small pile of thinly sliced eggplant in a simple coating of tomato sauce and it was 10E if I remember correctly (expensive... More

We have been coming to Siracusa for over 10 years now and the restaurant scene is continuously changing. It was a pleasure to discover this place thanks to Trip Adviser reviews. Having eaten fish for the last 4 nights my wife had the steak with pepper sauce and said it was one of the best steaks she had ever had!... More

Great atmosphere on the terrace. Good quality food with interesting and subtle touches to make it different to the usual. We came to Siracusa last year and made sure to come back to this place again this year. Best to book in advance.
