The place is a small quaint restaurant in a quiet side street, which gives a humble impression as you walk in. We were also greeted by great smells, so we knew we were in for a good meal! We went for the fish tasting menu, that proved to be the right choice, as the food was top notch and kept... More

A truly great restaurant just in the center but hidden so you cannot find it unless you know about it! And now you do‼️🍷😎 I cannot say it is the best restaurant in Ortigia, as I only have eaten here...18 times, and rarely another table occupied...maybe because this is a lunch for me, and they are busy at night... Who... More

At the end we changed restaurants and we were lucky to get a place (you really have to reserve!). What a good decision! We had a table outside and had a wonderful evening with (a few amazing) fishdishes and a good bottle of wine (not included). We really liked the place, the very friendly service and ofcourse the wonderful food.... More

This small unassuming restaurant tucked away from the tourist hotspots does what it does very well. Sea food mixed with everything and finally fish. If you leave here other than satisfied it would probably shock the staff. Indeed by the end of the second course of the 6 course menu you might wonder if you actually read it right. Wine... More

This well-known restaurant in Siracusa, Sicilia has a plan, a formula, in some sense a "gimmick". You receive no menu and you are informed that the dinner will consist of six courses each one involving seafood. Water, coffee and dessert are also included. Wine from a very adequate list is extra but the wines are very reasonably priced. Th first... More

This is the place to come if you love fresh fish as you get to have six courses of it in many different delightful forms! Fish with pasta, breaded fish, grilled fish, baked fish, fish cooked in lemon... This was the most authentic Italian food we had tried in Syracuse and the best value for money. Six courses of fish,... More

We love a place where we don't have to choose - so the menu is announced and it starts. Only choice to be made was the wine. 6 courses so don't have a large breakfast or lunch. Opens at 7.30pm - quite near to the temple of Apollo - you must book at least 24 hours ahead and even then... More

We found this restaurant quite easily down a side street off Corso Matteotti. It was a very warm evening, so we dined on one of the few tables outside. This was the only availability on a very busy Monday evening but suited us. The waitress who looked after us was very attentive & when asked for a wine recommendation did... More

This restaurant is for people who really like seafood and really really like a lot of very fresh seafood prepared exceptionally well. It is not for people who would like to eat anything with their seafood apart from the too lovely crunchy bread to mop up the juices of the seafood soup and the seafood stew. If you are like... More
