Fresh daily caught fish. Girlfriend had the sea bream, perfectly prepared and I had the swordfish which was juicy and flavorful. Wait staff is friendly and are often seen having conversations with guests. Nice quaint maritime atmosphere and a small simple menu with everything on...it quality. Was so good we took the family the next night! Can’t recommend this place enough!More

Great food and service. Very friendly staff. Away from the crowd. Had octopus salad, fish of the day (seabass) and king prawns, all really good. And not to forget always have the homemade tiramisu (best I've ever had)

You must try this beautiful little restaurant. We had the most excellent fresh fish and a de ent price too. The service was top notch and the food was prepared to order so you knew it was fresh. Great wine recommendations from the friendly waitress.

We found the place from Tripadvisor and we couldn't be happier. For starters we shared a pasta with tuna and swordfish, the sauce was just perfect. Then we had pancetta di tonno which was amazing (the chef said the best time to eat it is...on june and july), on the side we had an insalata di arance that accompanied perfectly. Overall we were very happy with the experience and had a nice chat with the kind owners too. Strongly recommend!More

Little family owned restaurant next to the water. We had the mussels soup with a wonderfully cooked broth and the perfectly grilled tuna. Never had a tuna so flavorful before. We finished off the meal with Tiramisu, which I highly recommend. The waitress and chef...were very very friendly and patiently explained the various dishes to us. We payed less than 40€ for two people, a very good price for seafood. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes seafood. If we ever visit Syracuse again, we will definitely come back!More

The place doesn’t look like much from the outside. However, the seafood they offer is outstanding. We had the swordfish and the sea bass, and it was absolutely amazing. The fish is cooked to perfection here and the chef and his family are really nice....Highly recommend!More
