Our hotel (De Stefano Palace) had recommended this place, We did not have reservations, but the owner Maria was very accommodating pushing tables together for us (there were 12 of us). The food was simple but extremely tasteful - in fact of all the meals we had during our 2 1/2 week trip to Italy and Sicily this was the... More

Eight of us found ourselves walking around Ragusa on Saturday night without restaurant reservations. Unable to find any place near the St. John the Baptist Cathedral that could seat us, a friendly waiter directed us down the street to Regia Osteria. The owner was happy to accommodate us and pushed several tables together in a corner. Many of us were... More

We could not find our first choice, but were directed here by some locals. This is a family run, simple fare bistro, not a fancy dinner out for your anniversary. After climbing all over Ilba we were thankful for a carafe of wine, good al dante pasta and pleasant service. Find yourself in our frame of mind and you too... More

This restaurant had many Italian diners and offered a range of local dishes at good prices. The house wine Nero d'Avola was very good and the Pasta alla Norma exceptional. Only criticism was 2nd course coming too fast after the first.

We spent 4 days in Ragusa and ate here twice- the first time by accident as it was 11pm, we were hungry and it was the first place we saw. The second time just to check that we weren't wrong about it being so good! We have both travelled widely in Italy and Sicily and like to think we know... More

My wife and I chanced upon this wonderful little restaurant as we walked home to our hotel and boy were we pleased we tried it. The food was excellent and from the start I knew that it would be good as there were bottles of olive oil and balsamic on the table. The owners were lovely and the simple pasta... More

My sister and I traveled all over Sicily and were almost always met with some of the BEST service of anywhere we've ever been. The staff here weren't so rude, but we were rushed out of the restaurant at the end of the meal, which didn't seem typical for Sicily. I think they wanted to turn tables over as fast... More

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

Only place close to hotel open on the sunday night we were there. 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
