A good first night in Ortigia

We enjoyed our first meal in Sicily here. We enjoyed the busy atmosphere and the food was good value and full of flavour.

We wandered around the quaint streets in Ortigia and came upon this restaurant for lunch. We had a Caprese salad, risotto with seafood and grilled calamari with the red house wine. Everything was very tasty especially the risotto and service was very good.

We happened on this restaurant one night in Ortigia while in Sicily with our daughters. The service was outstanding, and the food was excellent! From appetizers (shrimp, mussels) to pasta (bolognese, carbonara, pesto), risotto (tricolore), dessert (Sicilian cheesecake), and house wine, we were all impressed with the quality of the food--including our extremely picky teenage daughter. We were the only... More

Family-run tourist trap with average food & sarcastic owner giving unwelcome and unfriendly comments. Fake interior, fake friendliness, OK food, bad housewine, not cheap. tons of better places where to spend your money in friendly & good restaurants without having to endure sarcastic cheap humor in Ortigia. stay away.

We walked in by chance, The owner, Salavatore, was fun to attempt communication with and thru misunderstanding brought 2 orders of olives and pecorino that were outstanding. We could have eaten them until we were sick. He also misunderstood my wife's drink order and brought her Martini&Rossi (white) with a lemon. Neither of us had ever had one, but they... More

Pasta overcooked. Seafood dishes made from frozen. Not authentic Sicilian! Unfortunately typical poor quality served in busy touristic areas. There is so much better out there!

We recently travelled to beautiful Siracusa with our friends. While wandering through the lovely old part of town one night, we decided to have dinner at this restaurant. The place looked very welcoming with few empty tables – a good sign we thought. Although the atmosphere is nice, space is tight with the tables very close to each other. The... More

The staff were exceptionally helpful, the food was very good and it was a very lively atmosphere with lots of locals dining. Local white wine by the carafe was very drinkable. Roasted sea bass and seafood spaghetti did not disappoint. Relaxed, fun and good value.

A wonderful place for an evening meal. The staff are friendly with a good sense of humour. The food is very tasty, we tried pasta, risotto, and desserts. Everything was very good. Recommended!
