My husband and I were looking for something special for our last night in Sicily, and we came across this place by chance. Food was delicious and not overwhelming, and the wine was expertly selected by the sommelier. We would thoroughly recommend this place.

Italian restaurants quite often feel like a family affair, a warm friendly place where one can relax and enjoy comfort food. Don Camillo is not that place. It is an elegant formal restaurant in vaulted rooms with a highly refined menu and a two kilo wine list. The average wine price per bottle is two to four times what you... More

We were very much looking forward to a special meal at Don Carmillo, comfortably the most expensive meal of our trip to Siracusa. Unfortunately, it was also one of the most disappointing. I cannot give it less than 3 stars because it is certainly no worse than average but for the price paid, I expected much more. I would suggest... More

Don Camillo is an old fashioned restaurant serving great ingredients prepared with care. Our fish was superb as was the veal. The service was charming and the sommelier very helpful and knowledgeable. For a special occasion, the added little tasting extras made it a more glamorous experience. The room itself, surrounded by wine cellars is exquisite.

Asked for the bill and manager lady didn't manage to ask or... More

Recommended to book at this place. We were fortunate and got in within 24 hours notice. We ordered 2 fish tasting menus (5 courses €55) and were greeted with a glass of prosecco and an aperitivo style pizzetta. It ended up being about 7 courses all in, portions are large especially for a tasting menu. We told the sommelier what... More

This restaurant is beautiful as well as delicious. The service is top notch as was their food and wine list. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Don Camillo. The menu uses Sicilan ingredients in an inventive way and the fish and seafood were outstanding. 4 of us dined here and we all enjoyed our starters, entrees and desserts. Do... More

Excellent food and reasonably priced wine list for such a place, but let down by unfriendly head waiter(one with suit and tie). All other staff very welcoming and cheerful
