Pleasant experience at Orfeo

Restaurant in Ragusa are open till 3 pm. We managed to get there with just 20 minutes to spare, but we were greeted by Giampaolo, the owner and served lovely food in no time! Would love to visit again and try other typical Ragusian dishes. The Nero DÁvola wine complemented the Gnocchi... read more

We ate here as part of a (quite small) touring group. The pre-determined food took ages to come and was poor quality when it did arrive. The main course was a thin slice of veal (or maybe it wasn't - I've no reason to trust them) warmed up with a few sliced potatoes on top - except my wife's was... More

Unfortunately we only went here once, but everything served and the service was exceptionally good. We started with prosciutto and pineapple (a quarter of a whole pineapple) went on with pasta, etc.

The owner of this restaurant is not typically Sicilian and the main target is tourists. In Italian he is referred to as antipatica or unfriendly. The restaurant looks professional but the prices are high and parties of tourist not Italians are the key customers. It you want a true Sicilian welcome do not come here.

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews on this page, but our experience did not match that of others. The red decor looked inviting and fresh and the waiter was welcoming and friendly. But after that it was all downhill. The gnocchi were glutinous, soft and squishy and the sauce was another glutinous mush piled on the top. We... More

We had read up on this restaurant in all the guide books but we were put off initially by the bright red decor and the menu. It is Indian owned so not exactly your typical Italian restaurant. We opted to go for lunch instead of dinner and although we quite enjoyed what we had we weren't tempted to return for... More

We ate here with our Insight tour group and the was absolutely wonderful. The gnocchi in pistachio sauce was so tasty and the ricotta and pistachio dessert completed the Sicilian experience. Well worth a visit.

We had a nice meal here. Restaurant was very quiet. Service was helpful and friendly. Food was fine, quite a big menu and I think most pre cooked. However it was hot and filling and we enjoyed it.

under a bright red vaulted ceiling with gentlemen waiters and a quiet atmosphere the ambience is relaxed and the food is attractive and good. recommended to many travellers by the local taxi drivers so if you want a less touristy destination perhaps look elsewhere
