We went on a food-focused trip to Sicily, and this restaurant was quite a disappointment. The staff was very unfriendly and impatient, which is disturbing for a restaurant of this level/price. We asked about a few of the ingredients in the dishes and the staff...More

Booked in advance, great space in old convent, amazing winelist. Ate the 7 course fish tasting menu, which comes with 8 1/2 courses including 1 1/2 desserts. It was just perfect every dish was fab, they let the very fresh fish do the talking, but...More

This was a highly recommended place by local associates as the best restaurant in Siracusa. While most dishes are nice, there are occasional hit and misses. The price goes hand in hand with its reputation. I personally was not sure what the fuzzes is about.

We were hesitant about reserving here based on some comments about the arrogant staff. We work in the CA wine industry so we’re ultimately won over by the wine list. We wish we had listened! The staff was totally dismissive and inattentive (and we aren’t...More

After the first, preplanned visit, we came a second time and it was equally good. The wine list is also varied and reasonably priced. We found nothing negative about this restaurant--and saw no need to try others in Siracusa.

This had the potential for a great evening. The food was very good. The menu was interesting - some creativity and lots of choices. The wine list was good. However, the waiters, hostess and wine steward were all stand-offish to the point of being rude....More

My family all met in Sicily for a week to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday (we came from San Fran, London and Tuscany) and decided to celebrate at Don Camillo. Not only was this place completely over pretentious to the point of being unbearable but...More

Very upscale restaurant and delicious food. I was met with disdain however, when I asked if they had any type of salads on the menu. But they had arancini on the menu, which I thought was considered street food in Sicily. And at the exorbitant...More
