A real shame.... And perhaps our fault for ordering meat by the sea! We stared with Sicilian cheeses which were great and interesting. For pasta I had shellfish ravioli and pesto which was superb. My wife had seafood gnocchi shells which again was very good indeed. The big let down was the meat course. We both opted for veal, my... More

This was the highlight of our week in Sicily. Having sought out recommended restaurants, this one exceeded even those with Michelin stars. Beautifully prepared and inventive food. Nice touches also with the glass of prosecco to welcome, the chick pea fritter basket. Recommended now would be the swordfish millefeuille and the cod filled ravioli which were both excellent. We had... More

This harming restaurant located near the Duomo is warm and welcoming and the food is delicious. We went twice dueling our stay in Siracusa and both times found the service attentive, the fish very fresh, and the ingredients seasonal. The wine list was extensive and the staff helpful in selecting excellent wines in our price range. I had asked if... More

Enjoyed a great dinner here. Excellent food and service, perfect location. Slightly pricy in siracusa's standard, but definitely worth every penny you pay for.

I guess the food here would be called "modern Sicilian" and there are plenty of options showing creative interpretations on traditional Sicilian cuisine. We sat outside. An excellent wine list and fine service supported the great food but probably the standout feature of the meal was watching the activity as the summer day turned into night across perhaps the most...

Upper price bracket at approx €130 for two - but truly scrumptious food, beautifully served - glass of prosecco arrived as we sat down, first course had two different octopus courses - we shared the pasta course (plenty) Carlo Hauner white wine(del ish), and I had yellowtail for my secondo piatto which was superb. Only criticism they had run out... More

Went to this restaurant on a Monday night & it was packed (largely due to a big table of loud Americans!) but it was really nice. The staff were friendly & efficient. The food was delicious & the decor was attractive. Would definitely go back!
