I've come here many times and I'm never disappointed. As the menu is different everyday you never know what to expect exactly, even for the customers who frequently dine here. All the food is fresh, well-cooked and presented. Even as one of my relatives isn't much of a fan of fish they out of their already set menu cooked her... More

Fantastic fish in a lovely environment and Unbelievable value for money. This place is always full so booking is a must any day of the week.

Excelent seafood! You pay 35euros/person for a six course meal (appetizers to dessert). The menu is not fixed, it depends on what the chef found in the market that day. The portions are big, it is definitely worth the money.

Simply one of the best restaurant that I've ever visited in my life! Fixed menu but it's worth to surprise. Super fresh fish and tasty dishes. Portion are made to enhance the flavour in your mouth. If you really want to face a gastronomic experience you must pay a visit to this restaurant. I will come back soon for sure!

$35pp prix fixed menu was awesome. We lucked into a table because someone cancelled, so be sure to get an appt. House wine was good and even better at $5pp. Amazing quality and taste to rival a Michelin-starred restaurant. Go there now and then go back tomorrow.

Syracuse is a fish-area for food specialities. Meat is not really a big feature of the area. This restaurant is tucked away in a side street just inside the island of Ortigia which itself is a tourist trap. The restaurant is small, with around a dozen tables, and booking in advance is recommended because it was full during the evening... More

We visited the restaurant on our first night in Syracuse and it was a great experience. There was a set menu of SIX fish courses - one of which included pasta - so best go on an empty stomach. The cost was 35 euros including water. There was a good wine list and the local wine was execellent value at... More
