French Delight!

Just when you need a change, sometimes you stumble upon a French restaurant. French wine, French cooking, great beef with peppercorn and Roquefort sauces, foie gras, nice break from pure Sicilian food.

When I told our tour leader that we had had dinner at Le Vin de L'assassin, he asked why we would visit a French restaurant in Sicily. He was wrong. There is always a sameness in restaurants in tourist destinations and we saw the same items on so many menus. Le Vin de L'assassin has a menu that has as... More

Very helpful staff who went through the trouble of explaining the menu. The service was excellent and food was superb. We have been to siracuse many times before and never came across this. It will definitely be a restaurant to go to again. We were very impressed!

We were looking for a mid-priced restaurant to have a really nice meal as a (grown-up) family, as we'd been disappointed elsewhere in Ortigia. L'assassin delivered a stunning meal, with lovely, friendly staff and an amazingly diverse menu. You might, like us, want to ensure you're trying the authentic Italian restaurants; but if you have more than one night in... More

Definitely our best meal in Sicily -- and we ate there twice since once was not enough. The food here is inspired and fantastic, the service is efficient and thoughtful and the cost was surprisingly reasonable. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up!

This was a very busy restaurant. We went there without a reservation, but ended up getting a table after a short wait, which was worth it. The food was quite good, especially the fish special as was the bottle of the Sicilian Chardonnay that the manager/owner recommended. The atmosphere was lively if not a little chaotic but generally fun. Very... More

This resturant was recommended by a friend. Probably the best meal I had in Ortygia. A cross between french and Sicilian Cuisine. The owner was present and working tables. Pleasant decor and wonderful food and wine well worth the visit.
