Adorable little restaurant in the heart of Siracusa with great food. If you need a break from all of the heavy traditional Italian fare, this is your place. Able to cobble together a meal with some small plates and everything was quite tasty. Lovely staff, very accommodating.

We can see why so many people are positive about this restaurant. Nice location. Great explanation of the food on the chalk board. Excellent food. We took the spring rolls and gazpaccio. As main Salmon with soja sauce and also angus steak. All in all just good. With female staff smiling and friendly it would have been perfect. Definitely recommended.

Restaurant looked busy every time we passed of a night so we made a booking and were not disappointed that we did. From the start the service was great and attentive. Food styles were explained and wine varieties described. Choose a fantastic local Chardonnay to go with the Frois Gras Maison then the Drunken Duck and Black Angus fillet with... More

No pasta and pizza here. French/Italian food. Amazing melt in your mouth steak with the best potatoes I've ever had. Tuna steak was amazing. Started with an eggplant appetizer that was divine. I also asked for a recommendation on a bottle of prosseco and it was delicious. Going back for our last meal on Ortigia. Make a reservation bec it's... More

Located on a quite street and slightly away from main restaurant area this is a wonderful restaurant with great food and very good service. The restaurant appeared to be quite popular since some people had to wait to be seated but we got lucky and got a table right away. We ordered both meat and fish dishes and all of... More

We had a really lovely meal.Our mix of servers couldn't have been more pleasant and the food was delicious. My wife had some foie gras while I started with clam chowder in a lemongrass and coconut soup... More

We are on a six-week crawl around Italy, focusing on Sicily and the south. We love Sicily, but occasionally one needs a break from Sicilian comfort food. So we selected Le Vin D'Assassin for our last night in Siracusa. This was a great night out; the restaurant is on a quieter street away from the hustle and bustle of Via... More

We were a table of 8 for dinner. Lovely interior decor. Nice atmosphere. Great wine. Starters were mostly nice. Crostini allo cacciocavallo was delicious; burrata lovely; melanzane millefoglie not so spectacular but still good. Main courses all delicious . Great service, good wines

We dined here on our last night in Ortigia (Siracusa) and oh wow are we glad that we did! Awesome food, great service, fantastic wine list and gorgeous venue. What more can you ask for?! Really reasonably priced too. Don't hesitate - just go!!
