“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

To look at this place isn't any different to any other restaurant with tables in the street ... but there is a difference - the food is excellent and the service was brilliant - friendly, helpful, and informative. It's not expensive and it's worth a visit.

“We came back, 3 times in 3 days.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

This pavement cafe is very good value for money. The charming waiter Kevin made our visits relaxed and quirky. We arrived after a 14 hour sail from Gozo, tired and hungry. The food was good. We have sampled pasa dishes, meat dishes and fish, all of which we enjoyed. The lemon ans salmon risotto was very good indeed. I woul recommend this for lunch or dinner, enjoy!

“We will return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Last year in Ortigia a friend and I, from Canada, dined many times at this restaurant. We followed the suggestions of our friendly host and chef, Rosario, and were delighted each time.. We enjoyed the delicious pasta dishes and the seafood dishes were wonderful. Rosario is "uno chef meraviglioso"
We both like to cook and asked about ingredients and methods and he was kind enough to give us some recipes to try. We are returning to Ortegia this fall and look forward to once again dining at Porto Grande Ristorante.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

We were walking down Via dei Mille and thought Ristorante Porto Grande looked a pleasant place to have lunch. It was in fact exceptionally good. The young waiter was extremely helpful, and his suggestions were excellent. Not many vegetarian options, so he offered to arrange spaghetti con funghi. The spinach contorni was wonderful (not salty), and we all loved the main dishes chosen. After lunch, we were offered a digestive - a cinnamon liqueur made by the chef - which was absolutely delicious. This was a great place to spend an hour or so.
