Nice food and very cheap

Our food was quite good, although the pasta didn't appear to be homemade/fresh. The meal was very cheap though as was the wine, so it's difficult to be too critical. My expectations were perhaps a bit too high given the wonderful food we had elsewhere in Syracuse!

I have been to la Tavernetta yesterday. Food was not bad, but definitely not super. What impressed me was the service: not a single word in English for tourists, extremely slow and inefficient. I wouldn't reccomend it.

Visited La Tavernetta 2 located a few metres down from the original one with exact same menu, prices etc. House wine was not very nice, service hostile and food below the Sicilian average. The pastas weren't bad but the involtini di pescespada arrived cold, overcooked on the outside and raw in the middle. The chips arrived when we had almost... More

The waiters are genuinely friendly and helpful. Though they don't have proper a wine, the list is on paper and they have some good wines. Seafood dishes were good.

Service very slow, wine house very bad, wine list very poor! I would not really recommend it. There are many other better places nearby.

We passed by this restaurant and decided to eat there because of the stickers of excellence by TripAdvisor, but we weren't impressed. It's a busy place and they seem to be quite assured that they'll always have business going, their service wasn't too sharp or organized and the pasta we had was quite ordinary for their price. It's a small... More

We visited this restaurant because our original choice, nearby Sicilia in Tavola, had just closed when we arrived. In this case, we did not regret this alternative choice. Food was fresh and well prepared, which in our case included salad, grilled swordfish, pasta and a mixed seafood appetizer. Service was nicer than average. Unfortunately, it was a bit too warm...

I visit Ortigia in Sicily very often, and every time I go, I have to go to Piero's place. I travel extensively, but Piero's place is THE best in the world. The antipasti are to die for, and the pasta? WOW. One is better than the other. Even the main courses are fantastic, although you could always have a pasta... More
