Being in Siracusa don't omit "The Backstage" if you're seafood lover. It is really Artfood! But be carefull: when you ask for glass of grappa after dinner they serve almost half a bottle glass (free!!!!)

Walking around Siracusa at lunchtime we came across this restaurant opposite the old Theatre that is being renovated. We don't speak much Italian but the waiter spoke reasonable English.
