Description: The Algilà restaurant, located on the island of Ortigia in a fabulous position and with a wonderful view of the sea, offers a cuisine which is in total harmony with the spirit of the hotel and which distinguishes itself by its respect of Mediterranean traditions. Our gastronomic recommendations are based on genuine, simple and tasty Sicilian cuisine, making use of the modest but delicious aubergines, courgettes and peppers. Special care is given to fish. Only fresh, never frozen, local producers bring the fish directly from their boats to the restaurant.

We ate here on night and thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambience (sitting outside and watching the world go by) but it was all rather over-priced.

Our first night in Sicily, we had dinner at Algila. Since we were staying at the hotel, the dinner was complimentary, but it was so good that we considered returning another night. Warm octopus salad was delicious. Like most restaurant in Sicily, Algila has a large selection of fish on the menu, all very fresh. My pasta with pistachio pesto... More

A strange one, this. Acting on Tripadvisor reviews, we booked a table here for Saturday evening. At the first attempt, we were told that the chef was ill and the restaurant would be closed. However the restaurant got back to us the next day to say that the chef was better and the restaurant would be open. Great, we thought,... More

While the menu is limited the food is really first rate. The young chef does a careful preparation of wonderful Sicilian food. It's a bit pricier, not by much, than a lot of the local places and we found that we got much more value in quality. We ate here twice and thought it was the best in Siracusa that... More

We were a little disappointed on arrival to find that the hotel restaurant was closed both Sunday and Monday night. Fortunately we were for 3 nights and got to eat there on our last evening. Had we eaten there our first night we would probably have returned each night! Well presented food, good choice of wines. Excellent service.

We were staying at the hotel Algila (which is very good - I've reviewed that separately). Our first choice of local restaurant was full, so we opted to eat at the hotel. Ten days on, I forget exactly what it was we ate, but I do remember it was nicely cooked, well-presented and tasty. If I remember correctly, the wine... More
