Happy with our Visit

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.

Maria presented local Sicilian dishes. Be prepared as the servings are very large and delicious. Nice wine and prices are very modest. I would recomend without hesitation. Large menu selection.

we ate dinner here all 3 nights of our stay in Ragusa. The first night was on the recommendation of Pepe, the owner of our B&B (Bella Guilia--also fabulous). We appreciated the "a la carte" menu, and did not feel pressured to order more food than we wanted. The pasta was perfectly cooked, and the salads were lovely. We enjoyed... More

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

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
