Our hotel recommended this restaurant. We asked for a restaurant that locals went to. Most of the people in here were tourists. My husband & my friend enjoyed their meal, however I did not. I ordered the Cotoletta alla Cantanese. It was, basically, a very thin piece of, what tasted like cardboard. It was supposed to be beef fixed in... More

Went for lunch with my family. Had the ravioli with pistachio sauce, it was devine! Although seemed a bit understaffed, the waiter was very attentive. Also very child friendly, unlike other places, they kindly sorted a plate of pasta with tomato sauce for the kids. My best meal in Ortigia so far!

The food was very generously portioned and well cooked and presented. Unfortunately a thunderstorm put out the lights in the dining room and candles were a long time coming.

Went there twice for lunch. A small, straightforward restaurant doing straightforward food well. The fish dishes were better than the meat although the veal escalope (not a cutlet as described on the menu) was adequate. Service efficient and not effusive and the prices reasonable. A very safe choice.

I don't know if it was the way I was put in a corner when the restaurant was empty (single traveller problem!), the pasta was not great, there was no atmosphere. On reflection it was probably the only restaurant I chose with no Italians eating , it felt like its was aimed at tourists, turning the tables with an almost... More

We went to Seby because the reviews and our hosts agreed that it is a worthwhile visit. The food is well prepared and they have a good and well priced wine list. The waitstaff was friendly and helpful. I am not fond of seafood and they accommodated my request with aplomb. Their desserts were the best part as far as... More

we enjoyed a lovely meal here. The food and service was exceptional. My husband had the sardines and I had a delicious pasta of ravioli with a creamy pistachio sauce, divine!

Our hotel directed us here, saying it was just for locals. The menu is in three languages and all the other guests were tourists (to be fair we arrived at 8pm. By 10 there were a lot of Italians). Despite being a tourist place, the food was excellent. We liked the warm seafood salad, mussels, pasta with sea urchin (ricci)... More

Really charming brothers, outstanding pasta with tomatoes and swordfish, and some great sardines and mixed grill of fish which was swordfish, shrimp and a small fish that I think was a treglia. Really simple, really good.

This was recommended by our hotel or I don't think we'd have found it. Its a traditional restaurant that appeared very popular with the locals. It seems to specialise in fish and pasta dishes and it reasonably priced. The portions are quite large, so you might want to share some dishes. The waiters were very helpful and did advise on...
