Went here for a special night with out travel companions and were not disappointed. There is no menu here - just 6 courses of whatever seafood is fresh today prepared beautifully. Each course was excellent and huge. By the time course 4 - a seafood pasta - was served we were nearly done! 2 excellent bottles of white and 4... More

No menu! This is the key: no menu but an amazing 6 courses fish menu (35€) based on what is fresh that day (raw fish, carpaccios, sea shells soup, sweetsour tuna, fried neonata, pasta with prawns, grilled fish, swordfish, sicilian dessert) if you are still hungry you can further strengthen the menu with spaghetti with sea urchins

Thanks to suggestion of other reviewers we lucked out & dined here. This restaurant is close to the Siracusa fish market in Ortygia & the seafood could not be fresher nor more expertly prepared. There was a cornucopia of oysters, mussels, shrimps, sardines,grilled fish, fish cakes, sea bass. It was enjoyable to just sit down with no decisions to be... More

Cute romantic little restaurant. Not many people when we went off season during lunch so no problem with reservations. Empty except us and one other table. Can order a la carte during lunch but we tried the set menu (maybe we should have just ordered a la carte because it ended up being way too much food). Bottle of wine... More

Prepare to stuff yourself, you better not eat few days prior to visiting this restaurant as you want to make sure you will get to the end of the dinner without exploding! Fixed menu (35 Euro) includes 5 courses (good size portions, not degustation at all)of fresh delicious fish, good wine, water, dessert and coffee/digestive. I honestly don't know where... More

By far one of the best dinners I've had in the last years. Good Sicilian cuisine with fresh fish and seafood, perfect pasta and excellent wines. It is useless to describe what we had as I understood that the menu is changing according to what is the catch of the day. Don't miss it!

You sit down. The waiter informs you that there is no menu and asks what wine you want. Then you will be served a multitude of fish dishes, starting with raw oysters, shrimps and carpaccio, followed by about 6 other courses including pasa marinara, whole grilled mediterranean fish, scampi, etc, etc. Fresh sicilian cannoli for desert and an Averna to...

We happened upon this restaurant whilst strolling through Ortigia looking for dinner - we were not disappointed. The seafood dishes were the best we have had on this trip - fresh, flavorful but delicate and prepared with care. The six courses were fantastic, and by the end we were full to the brim! They even managed to cater for my... More
