Good food

Local hang-out. Had a good time here. A little pressure to move on after dinner to make room for the later (post 1030 pm) crowd, but food was good and service good. Many people turned away on a Sunday evening, so need reservations for sure.

Another holiday in Sicily another 2 nights at Tavernetta da Piero....great value and quality food - seafood and fish particularly recommended. Always really busy and best to book the early sitting at 7-7.30 - they have to turn lots of people away who haven't booked and some tables don't become available promptly for later diners who have booked.

We passed by this restaurant many times during our stay in Syracuse and there was always a line of people waiting for a table; after eating here on our final night I can now vouch for it's popularity.......it is simply a little gem! There is quite an extensive menu with an emphasis on fish, but with plenty to choose from... More

We asked our concierge where we should eat and he recommended this restaurant. Boy was he right! My husband ordered seafood salad thinking it would be a bed of lettuce with some seafood on top. Wrong, but oh so right! It was all seafood and plenty of it. He then had the grilled seafood that was equally impressive. Everything we... More

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The tuna carpaccio was very good and also the caprese salad. The chef's riaotto was well filled and very tasty. The sea bass also well prepared. Was all very good.

Tucked away in a little lane way is this trattoria. We stopped for our first lunch in Siracusa and we were delighted. I had a pasta with broccoli and ricotta. It was perfectly cooked and just deliciously simple. My partner had a pasta with mixed seafood. He, like me, made sure we sopped up every last bit of the sauce.... More

Ŵe arrived at 7.30 pm and got the last unreserved table so this is a very busy restaurant in a place where most people don't eat out until 8.30 at the earliest! Great menu with lots of choice (I was tempted by 7 or 8 of the pasta dishes). Staff were efficient without being very cheerful probably because they had... More

We came here the first night we were in Siracusa. Being Calabrese ourselves we were excited to have a Calabrese meal here. The food was sensational. Reminded us of our cooking at home. However what can be improved is the friendliness of the waiters. There was a female waitress we had, she couldn't even smile. When we asked for some... More

Tried this place after reading the reviews, but was somewhat disappointed. Fried antipasti of which at least a few were fried earlier and warmed up again later (all but crunchy), pasta dish which was rather poorly seasoned and a seafood risotto which wasn't so bad by itself, but nearly all mussels in the dish were still closed (either bad ones,...

This restaurant was recommended to us by the B&B where we stayed and it was a very good recomendation. We were there for dinner, but reserved some hours before. It is wise to do so because the place is full very early. Had pesce spada alla palermitana and it was wonderful!!
