Can't recommend it enough, the food is great, easy to find, and if you have an outdoor table you'll love it. Book in advance as it is very popular. Warm thanks to the staff (Arnaud in particular) for their friendliness !

We ate here during a two-day stay in Ortigia and probably made our best choice. We had two excellent starters, homemade burrata and eggplants, as well as perfect main course (including raw tuna) and desserts. We would go back.

After finally getting a reservation here we were particularly excited about our meal but we were very disappointed. We were sat on a table inside the restaurant which was VERY hot and uncomfortable, we were greeted by a waiter who was dressed in shorts and a t shirt and although he did explain the menu to us it was very...

We ate here on the last night of our 3 week wedding/honeymoon trip in Italy and Sicily and it was the perfect last dinner. I loved how they combine French influences to create wonderful and delicious dishes. I had the homemade burrata to start and my husband had the lobster. Both were very good, especially the lobster. We both went... More

Le Vin De L'assassin Bistrot is definitely my place in Ortigia (Siracusa). I absolutely love this place,great service, great atmosphere and their dishes are to die for. Always impressed by Salvo and Saro. Good patio on the side of the restaurant on the quite side of the street. Love you guys........

We hadn't booked and they were busy but they squeezed us in round the side. The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

We arrived at about 10:30 without a reservation, there were groups queuing, but a table for two was quickly sorted. The menu was simple, refreshingly so, and a mixture of local cuisine with some French influences. I can honestly say that the food was some of the best we have eaten in a very long time, and by far the... More

This was easily the best restaurant that we visited in Syracuse. The food and wine are truly excellent and the service was great. Don't let the French influence put you off... it is married well with local Sicilian flavours and produce. The home made burrata and fois gras were particularly notable, as were the local wines which were recommended for... More

Super service. Fair prices for delicious French bistro food. Best fillet steaks in Ortigia beyond doubt. Absolutely lovely local wine, too. You might need to book a table - the place fills up every evening we've been in town.

Many of the restaurants in Syracuse and Sicily of course offer excellent dishes with tasty vegetables and sea food. The only thing is that you might be just getting more of the same wherever you go. Not here. The menu is a wonderful fusion of French and Sicilian cuisine: the cacciacavallo with the sweet pepper puree was to die for.... More
