We were told this was one of three or four good restaurants in Ortigia. Our visit started with that annoying habit of poor restaurants - telling you to sit in the worst part of the restaurant, beside the only other two occupied tables. "Why can't we sit over there?" "All those tables are reserved." Rubbish. Two hours later, they were... More

Dinner for 4 at the Regina Lucia, after recommendation from a friend: we ate inside (downstairs) as it's still cool in the evenings to sit outside. Restaurant: lovely room but plastic chairs were not so comfortable. Service: proficient and knowledgeable, although slow, despite the restaurant not being full. We had to summon the waiter a few times. Aperitifs: Aperol spritz... More

We had a three course meal with wine. Very good service and the ambience was great too. It was expensive but good value even so

We went here expecting to be bowled over after reading the reviews and soliciting the opinion of the rather knowledgeable young man at our hotel, but our reaction was less than ecstatic in the end. First of all, any notions of a particularly sophisticated clientele were nullified by the prevalence of blue jeans and children welded to their cellphones, although... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B (the wonderful Maeco). We were in Ortigia for 3 nights and liked Regina Lucia so much that we went two nights in a row after we discovered it. The food is not your typical trattoria fare. But for what it is, it's very very reasonable. It is an elegant and beautiful... More

I have eaten at many many top restaurants including michelin starred and have worked at a Michelin restaurant and Regina Lucia is by far the best I have ever had the pleasure to sample. We had the tasting menu and from the start it was a taste explosion from simplicity to complex. To make a simple ravioli with such depth... More

We had a great dinner in Regina Lucia. Service was very friendly and professional, complementary glass of bubbly on arrival gets you into atmosphere. We enjoyed high quality food and generous advise and descriptions on the way it is prepared. It always makes a difference to eat in place where people pride themselves in what they do. Inside part is... More

I really wanted to love this place but came away with mixed feelings. The pros: the atmosphere, the space and the service were all excellent and really the quality of the cooking was very good overall. The cons: some overly complex cooking for no real value addition, the lighting in the main dining room was a bit off (I had... More

One of the best meals in Italy, with attentive and knowledgable service. We shared a plate of local cheeses served with a reduction sauce (with honey, marmalade, balsamic, etc) followed by sea bass encrusted with pistachios and potatoes for my wife and large ravioli with Ragusa cheese, and a wonderful tomato sauce, paired with excellently local wines (especially the Vivera...
