It was our first night in Sicily and didn't know where to eat. We were directed to this place by a local, and we were not disappointed. The pasta alla norma was the best I've ever had! I definitely would visit this place again.

We ate here 3 nights in a row. The food was very good and reasonably price. The veal dish we had one night was delicious. It also had a nice friendly atmosphere. The owner welcomes, seats and takes everyone's order. Just a great little place.

During my many stays in Siracusa I must have been to Scoggiu's a score times. Nearly always top notch,friendly owner whose suggestions I have always enjoyed. This is one little trattoria that makes splendid pasta. I would recommend even to family tourists to visit. Prices are reasonable and meals-abbondante. I will definitely revisit before the year is out!

So probably because we were tourists we got a very poor portion of Grilled Fish which was supposed to include different types of fish. Well me and my boyfriend got a skimpy plate with ONE grilled prawn, ONE tiny swordfish fillet and a piece of calamari, ONE boiled potato cut in pieces and that was it! For the price of... More

We found this restaurant by chance on the recommendation of a waiter of a nearby restaurant which could not fit us in- a lucky find. It was busy at lunchtime and many of the diners were local Italians- a good sign. We had the octopus antipasti and seafood risotto- both thoroughly enjoyable. The service was good and the owner was... More

We ate at ado Scogghiu twice on our recent trip to Siracuse. Both times the pasta was great, the staff friendly and the food and wine reasonably priced. The Cannoli we had for desert was the best so far in Sicily.

It proved a good choice out of the Lonely Planet Guide. Friendly service, not rushed nor delayed, with straightforward, everyday food - it's a trattoria so don't expect restaurant standards. A relaxed, busy place when we were there. Pasta nicely al-dente, fish was good, wine enjoyable with the proprietor surveying his kingdom with a smile on his face and a... More

based on previous reviews we went here for dinner, but left disappointed. spaghetti scoglio - pasta was not cooked through, there was no sauce and fish seemed to come from frozen. we cook it better at home.. The seafood antipasti we started with were nothing to write home about either. sorry to say but you can give this place a... More

We had a great evening in Spaghetteria Do Scogghiu. It had such a fantastic atmosphere, with an open kitchen and lovely fresh dishes. The place was full but the service was fast and the owners friendly and welcoming. The food was great - a lovely blood orange and onion salad and massive bowls of spaghetti which were very reasonably priced.... More
