Great group dinners

In both 2014 and 2015, my co-director and I took a tour group to this restaurant for a group meal (13 people in 2014, 18 in 2015). Both times we enjoyed fantastic seafood and outstanding service. We'll go there again the next time we take a group to Sicily. The atmosphere is pleasant enough, but... read more

Well, this restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide, so we stopped one evening and it took us at least 45 minutes to obtain our appetizers, I think we were forgotten by the waiter. So needless to say the bloom was off the rose at this point. I had a fish meal that was just OK, have had... More

We had a really bad experience here - hopefully an aberration. It took forever to place our order and forever for the starter to arrive. Then the main came on top of the starter. Fish and seafood pasta was average with the price very high compared to other meals. We had stopped here because we saw the restaurant was crowded... More

An incredibly warm welcome, friendly but not overbearing service, excellent fresh food and a cool and comfortable setting. The prices are very affordable and the selection authentic.

We had the most delicious dinner....Seafood antipasto, tuna with peppers (to die for) and the most unusual yet scrumptious salad of oranges, fennel and chile! Great chef! Great waiters! Charming atmosphere! I can't wait to go back!

The atmosphere and service were wonderful. Tuna steaks, fresh seafood ravioli, and nice desserts. Service was attentive, but not intrusive. It is located on a narrow lane on the island of Ortigia. Everything seemed to be extremely fresh and flavorful.

Osteria da Seby was recommended to us by our pension but beware it is closed on Mondays. The first night we went for dinner we had not booked in advance and we turned up at the same time as a lot of other dinners so the service was a bit chaotic - in fact our order got lost in their... More

My wife walked in to a business and asked the owner where we could eat good Sicilian food, at the right price. He sent us halfway across Ortiga, past many restaurants, to this place. I'm glad he did! We had a great meal, served by nice, attentive people, at a reasonable price. Would definitely recommend it...even if I'm not a... More
