For second evening in a row went here on the recommendation of a local business person. Family of four ate well: second courses of two gnocchi with mountains of seafood, one egg noodles with seafood etc and mine a soup with mussels, octopus and prawns. Shared a plate of fries. Quite enough flavoursome fresh seafood, with a bottle of water,... More

The place is crammed with locals at lunchtime. We started with a sea urchin bruschetta which turned out to be....an acquired taste. Maybe they could improve on it or lower the price. It was followed by a dish of "Bavette" with seafood, (square pasta). Totally excellent. My wife then had seafood in tomato broth that was excellent too, probably the... More

La Tavernetta was recommended by the manager of our daughter's hotel and it didn't disappoint. It is essential to make a reservation as it is very popular, both with locals and tourists. The meals were exceptional - the most tender veal I have ever had. Although the restaurant is very busy, the staff are friendly and attentive.

It did not start well when they insisted I sit by the door though another table was available and it was cold outside. The waiter brought the wrong wine and would not change it (I do speak Italian so it was not a language barrier). The food was average and the service slow and inattentive.

Tavernetta is my favorite place in Ortigia. The menu is extensive and very cheap (7-10 euros for primi, same for secondi). The house wine is great and is served in beautiful ceramic pitchers. The seafood is so fresh and the sauces are well done. A highlight for me is the long pasta with pumpkin cream and fresh scampi. Also this... More

The menu is too long. That should have told me. The tomatoes in the starters were completely unripe. Both our mains had very poor sauces. Mine was a gloppy mix of pumpkin and mostly inedible seafood. My wife's veal filet steak was smothered by a straight out of the bottle balsamic glaze. The bill was not itemised, just a scribble... More

This little restaurant along busy restaurant street Via Cavour is the reliable choice for lunch. We sat outside both visits and although the wait between courses is long, the food is delicious. My husband started with the buffet (antipasti) which included, artichokes, grilled vegetables, fresh fish and moved on to a red wine risotto which he deemed very good. I... More

Located in one of the main pedestrian streets on the way to the Duomo, we couldn't get a table without booking but it was worth the wait. Good Sicilian cooking, good service, they know exactly what they are doing. An enjoyable part of our visit to Ortygia!

A very popular restaurant, turning people away all the time, so be sure to pre-book. Food was very nice, and we would definitely go back there.

This is a very popular restaurant in a busy little street full of restaurants. We booked a table for our last night in Siracusa. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful, especially if you try and speak some Italian. The food was very good and the place was soon packed. Not somewhere to linger over your meal but...
