we found the restaurant as we were walking around Ragusa, and although the decoration is incredibly tacky we decided to give it a chance..Well we shouldn't have. It was the worst restaurant ever. The lady owner was very pushy in trying to make us order as many dishes as possible. At the end we had a brushetta as a starter... More

We were a group of friends visiting this restaurant for dinner. Even though the food was good we were rather disappointed with the service. The lady owner tried to persuade us to order 10 of the same pasta and same starters and when it came to the coffee we could have 2 or 4 cause she had capsules in pack... More

Overpriced little portions.owner seemed disinterested when she realised we were not ordering lots of courses. €2 per person cover charge is also double that of most other local places. First time in 14years of visiting Italy and Sicily that i have felt disappointed in service attitude and... More

Only an inside restaurant but excellent, as always freshly prepared food, with very professional service, if a little 'dour'.

It was close to our hotel and recommended by staff. Sadly it did not perform on the night. Both my wife and I choose differing dishes but neither had any real sense of great food. It was all very mediocre. Surroundings were ok, table wine was very rough.

There seemed to be few places to eat near our hotel in Ragusa but this place worked out so well that we came back the next night. The service was friendly and the selection was great. Pasta one night and pizza the other were both very good.

We ordered a bruschetta and a antipasti; both were bland. The tomatoes on the... More

I am the director of the Regia Osteria Vecchia Ragusa. Thank you for this comment, although negative. The tomatoes are seasonal, from the chain of Victoria. If they were immature enough to say it and now we proceeded to change them. As far as the other starter, did not specify what it was (since we have the menus in all... More

Before we had diner at the Regia Osteria Vecchia, we met the very friendly Chief at the balcony of our hotel (the backdoor of the restaurant kitchen is next to the backside of Hotel Bertini). Helped by the delicious smell that was coming from his kitchen, we decided to eat there. And had no regrets! The food was very very... More

Regia Osteria Vecchia was recommended to us by the desk clerk at our hotel. We and another couple walked to the restaurant and had a delicious meal in lovely surroundings.
