La Tavernetta was recommended to us by our Italian host and his local knowledge certainly did not disappoint. A fantastic relaxed venue with a great atmosphere, generated by the fact that it was packed out with locals and visitors alike on both out visits. They staff were very welcoming and were able to find us a table with minimal wait.... More

Excellent value for money. We started with raw scampi and red shrimps - which were brilliant. As for main course we ordered a pasta dish with sea urchin and a pasta dish with fish, raisins, capri, olives - both were remarkable. All in all including a small bottle of white wine, 2 *desserts and coffee - 45 euros!!! A MUST

We saw 7 groups turned away inside 90 minutes on a wet midweek night in February. The service was a little grumpy but the food and drink was good. Not the cheapest but overall was probably worth it.

We came here one evening and when we entered, the waiter, who barely spoke English, tried to explain to us that we can sit, but only for an hour. We were starving so we stayed. The food is ok, but nothing special and maybe a little overpriced, compared to the other experience we had in Ortigia. It's probably a restaurant... More

We have come here for dinner many times and it is always busy and reliably good. The pasta dishes are much appreciated, the fish and sea food lovely and fresh, good meat dishes, and the house wine is basic but so is it with all house wine. The service is very good, helpful and friendly. You can't go wrong by... More

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.
