Located in a lovely narrow street behind the duomo, Mariano makes good typical Sicilian food. The menu combines antipasto, local fish dishes cooked traditionally and excellent pasta, mostly with seafood. The pasta with sardinas was marvelous and the frutti di mare are a must. You cannot finish without a typical canolo with riccota. All great at a very reasonable price... More

Terrible, terrible food: The antipasti tasted like leftovers, the fried calamares were soft, the pasta seemed semifinished. And the service was bad, I suspect the waiters are ashamed of the crap they are serving their customers. At the end of the evening, I discretely nodded my head ta warn a couple waiting for a table againts this restaurant. The best... More

Nice location in the old city centre. Food is OK but not really special. Staff is doing what they should do but not very friendly. Price is in line with what you would expect to pay for the food.

Average food, the antipasti looked and tasted like leftovers, the food was cold.. Annoying and pushy waiters, felt uncomfortable the whole meal. Was also fooled by the telegraph review!

There were 8 of us last night for dinner. Wonderful anti pasti. Great selection. Nice presentation. Fabulous flavours. Endless amount of food. We all had a primi afterwards. Penne with pinoli, finnocchio, mente was lovely. Tagliatelle alla sepia nera not so good. Great atmosphere. Toilets not good. Will return

The food was very tasty. My starter, the Delize was full of flavours and the Sea Food Pasta was the best I've had. The portions were quite big. The service was a bit rushed but professional. The meal was very reasonably priced. We were treated to a small bottle of Marsala and some sweet treats at no cost. All in... More

Very nicely located in a narrow street not far from Fonte Aretusa. Both inside and especially the tables outside where very nice places for a lunch or evening meal. This is a place for tourists which as in many cases means not so good food and terrible service. Waiters are running around all the time and seems very busy and... More

My wife and I ate at Osteria da Mariano last week and it was the WORST meal we have EVER eaten anywhere in the world! The starters of grilled vegetables were warm but swimming in oil. My wife's pasta dish was bland but okay. My pasta dish was ABSOLUTELY STONE COLD. That's right. Not even room temperature. It must have... More

We loved the food at Mariano's! We went there with our local friends, who frequent it regularly. It was very authentic, on a narrow, quiet street, which was perfect for our kids to safely run around in. The service was fast and accommodating for kids' needs.

Thank Zita R
