This is a small charming family run restaurant. Food I had was excellent and very reasonably priced. I recommend the grilled swordfish and bobbio. The service was excellent and they made a strong effort to make you feel at home

We had an amazing lunch in Ortigia Fish Bar. The food was absolutely delicious, Susanne and her daughter Carlotta made our experience even better with their kindness and recommendations. I highly recommend triying the Linguine with shrimps and the desserts: Tiramissu and Cannoli handmade! 10/10!!!...Don’t hesitate to visit them!!More

Great food, friendly staff and reasonable price. Restaurant was spacious enough for park up our baby stroller. Not a fan of sitting on stools but overall, very good.

Excellent sea food restaurant in the old town area of Syracuse - the Island or Ortigia. We eat here twice it was that good. Excellent fresh sea food including line caught fresh fish (as well as the farmed variety) & a good varied menu. Service...was also excellent - from booking through to advice on the menu or wine etc. All was very friendly and welcoming too - also nice to note that tables were not crammed in and aircon also keeping the inside area a very nice place to be (a few tables are available outside but this is on a road side - a minor road in fairness). We had the grilled tiger prawns & seabass for two - both were excellent as were the side dishes (salad etc). Well worth tracking this place down! Lovely place and great food.More

The mussels broth just tasted like water. The caponata had really tough hard un-chewable veggie skins in it. They were so stingy with the bread, especially for zuppe cozze. It was fresh but the flavor was totally not memorable.

Food here went from inspired to disappointing. None of the pasta on the menu was available but the special was stunning. Linguini with zucchini purée, sardines and pink peppercorns. Really good. At the other end of the spectrum we’re the fish croquettes. Very brown fish…...basically made out of all the fish off cuts. I’m into nose to tail eating, but they were a bit rough. In the middle was the seared tuna, which was quite flavoursome but the presentation left a bit to be desired. Served as one big thick chunk and would have been much nicer if sliced before serving.More
