Booking is a must and book an outside table - you are welcomed with a very excellent dry prosecco (on the house) and a varied modern take on Sicilian food. Generous portions but it's the stunning view of the piazza duomo that's the icing.. Enjoy the Italians doing what they do best - strolling by putting on a show! Food... More

This restaurant situated on the picturesque main square of Ortigia was one of the most flavourful meals I had in Sicily. The quality and quantity of food for the price is satisfying. I had a pasta for a first course and veal with nero d'avola sauce for a second. I'm still dreaming about that sauce. The veal was cooked to... More

We came for a dinner and where sited outside. The place is very elegant and looks much nicer than all the other restaurants on the piazza Duomo. The service is very good, our waiter was attentive without fake formality but with true desire to make our evening special. And the food was amazing! Made out of simple things like ricotta,... More

Yes, a lovely to look at venue right at the end of the Piazza Duomo with delicate lace tablecloths and candles...all looked good. But that was all that was good. Shared the ravioli with eggplant and cheese, which was OK, albeit swimming in red sauce but the pasta here is homemade, of course. Second course was tuna, good not great,... More

The restaurant is very good located near the Duomo where there is an ambiance without being very crowded. We had dinner at the outside terrace. Table's setting is very elegant. The staff were nice. The food is excellent (row fish selection is exceptional and local pasta's dishes). A good place to have a pleasant diner.

The location, the room and the service was very nice and so was the first pasta dish with shrimps, but the main course, tuna steak was tasteless and really not worth the money. Improvement is needed!

The atmosphere,the location, the grand welcome! Finally a place like this in Syracuse! The waiters really made sure to make this your special evening. This restaurant gets top marks for the service, decorations and food knowledge. On the other hand, the food was only average. Too much salt, too much food and blend flavours. Such a shame.

The location of the restaurant is superb and the menu is nice, the dishes I had were very well prepared, tasty and fresh. The service however was very slow and the waiter didn't take into account who came in when, forgot who ordered which dish etc. I hope this was a one off mistake because for the food you need...

We had the 5 course tasting menu (fish). The appetizer is awesome! And the fish pasta is one of the best. The sword fish ravioli is amazing as well. Overall it's a very good experience and it's our best meal in Sicily. And the service is good too!
