So good we came here twice.

Found this by chance on our 3 day visit to Syracuse. They fitted us in on the first visit and staff couldn't have been more helpful. Sat in a small courtyard for an amazing meal. Staff had menus in several languages and really knew about the food and where it came from. The portion are not too big... read more

The food here was fantastic. The garlic mussels starter was similar to Escargot but with mussels and set the tone for the French-Sicilian food throughout the meal. We also had a bottle of Prosecco which was great and the same price as most of the white wine. I would definitely eat here again if we went back to Ortigia

Very good food and wine list rather ok. Service super nice with people speaking different languages (Italian, English, French), which is a real asset in Sicilia.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. We wanted to get some fish tartare as a starter, so we ordered the main course of tuna tartare and shared it. Absolutely fantastic! Then, we both went for the guinea fowl main course which was definitely the best guinea fowl either of us have had. We asked the owner to suggest wines for... More

Went here on our first night in Sicily. It was my sister in law's 52nd birthday and fittingly she ordered what was the dish of the evening. She had the prawns. These beauties must have been working out, they were massive! More importantly they tasted wonderful. Ask for a table outside when you book. We had a great evening.

This was by far the best food we had in Syracuse. We chose to share 6 starters and didn't have main course (we were a party of 3). We asked the very nice host, Saro, to suggest a good local white wine. Everything was excellent! It is great when you don't have to sacrifice the quality of your meal when... More

We had a lovely meal here on our first night in Ortigia. Mainly French in style, but plenty of fish, drawing from its local surroundings and fresh local produce. Desserts were particularly good - yummy tarte tatin!

Tasty and well prepared French/Asiatic cuisine, using local very fresh and good products: smoked salmon of the house "sushi style", lobster "au Champagne" and scallops (Saint Jacques) with bacon highly recommends

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
