We were looking for a place for a late lunch in Ortigia (2pm) and every restaurant was full. This bar offers a limited variety but yet excellent quality of dishes: pasta, parmigiana (eggplant lasagna), salads and typical arancini. Great and friendly service at reasonable price...(55 eur for 4 people including wine, one dessert, coffee and bruschetta)More

We started off by happening by for a coffee and really liked that the waiter was really friendly and happy to explain the differences between the different Italian coffees which I find really confusing....espresso, macciato, doppia, etc. We had a bit of a laugh with...him. So we went back for drinks that evening....wine before going to the restaurant we planned to eat at and overheard another couple eating there that they really enjoyed their meal. So we again had coffee this morning but went back this evening for dinner. The waiter, Franco, is very friendly and very hard working, he is the same guy who serves the coffee at 10am and the dinner at 8pm, still with a smile and ready to chat. To be honest it is Franco who makes this place he is a wee gem. We had nice wine, local wine, I preferred the red, and the caponata was delicious, and we then had melanzane parmigiano which was also nice, then ice cream and he got us to try Unicum, a digestif which was a bit weird but fun to try. Do go to FM Bar, not just for coffee or a drink but for a meal...there are so many places to eat in Ortigia but honestly this was my favourite because I felt we enjoyed ourselves most here and the experience of eating out isn't just all about what comes on the plate.More

We found this great cafe bar just behind the cathedral on the main square. A shady spot if you need one as it has space on both sides of the road. The couple that run it are so entertaining that we went back again and...again. The food is home made and sometimes even homemade in-front of you. The bruschetta and the arancini were our favourites.More

Definitely best Cappuccino in Ortygia, for only 1,5 euro. This is maybe one of the places in Ortigia where you get quality and you don’t have to pay to much for it.

We went to this little bar on Via Roma with seating by a church several times. All the staff were friendly, made a real fuss over our daughter and the food and drinks were very good. Throughly recommended for evening drinks and the lasagne and...the parmigiana di melanzane were excellent.More

Found this place late one afternoon after walking a LOT! Chairs and tables in a piazza looked inviting. An energetic and friendly young man took our wine and beer order and we sat back, enjoyed watching people, and had our drinks. Our server, who was...limited in his English, took us inside the bar to meet his wife who spoke English well. The couple's bar is relatively new. They pride themselves on posting actual prices for drinks (no "hidden" charges"). Honest prices, great service. And the owner poured us grappa on the house! Recommend wholeheartedly!More
