This was a great seafood restaurant located in Ortigia. €35 prefix 6 course dinner featuring local fish. We loved the fresh fish preparations and couldn’t eat everything! Best seafood pasta! Thanks for a great dinner! Wine was great too (priced separately).

We have been reccomanded this restaurant as an excellent restaurant for sea food. And we were not disappointed. 6 courses of sea food, very tasty. We had even a delicious dessert. And all this for 35 €. Very reccomandable.

We had the fixed price menu at 35E. A lot of food, but the quality was not what you would expect for this price. Disappointing.

We arrived on a Wednesday in mid March. We sat down and started our meal. Course after course kept arriving, fish this, anchovies that, bread, wine and finally a lemon sorbet. Call ahead and enjoy a beautiful meal with out a menu.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent evening in this establishment! Fix menu that will fill you up and worth your money! Very professional and nice staff, they even adapted a dish for my wife that doesn't eat sea-shells. A great experience with delicious food!

Bountiful multi-course fixed menu is an outstanding deal and the best way in Ortigia to sample a great range of fare from the seas. Choosing the supplemental local wine is a bargain as well. Dishes are prepared simply with beautiful presentation. Not good for kids...More

You should contact the restaurant directly to ask them their closing dates and times. However, be advised that their premises are very SMALL. As I recall they only have a half dozen tables in total so unless you are going to... More
