Good Italian food. We had Tuna carpaccio very fresh and nice taste. Followed by fresh seafood pasta with swordfish. Nice rich taste. Secondo, Gamberoni (large shrimp) fried with a brandy sauce. Excellent taste, shrimps cooked still juicy not to much. Place packed from it opened, to be sure to get a table make reservations. Staff nice and friendly; -yes. Menu... More

We were lucky enough to get a table for two, and sat watching endless people turned away because they were so busy. Quite a number commenting they'd seen it on Trip Advisor. Do we need to say more? go early or book. Atmosphere, service and not least, the food were all excellent, highly recommended

This restaurant was recommended to us by our host. We went for lunch shortly after we arrived in Ortigia and really enjoyed our experience. We both opted for the self service antipasti. This included a wide choice but everything we chose was delicious. My wife raved about her creamed sea bass whereas my macaronchini campagnola was among the tastiest pasta... More

The fact that the people there were friendly and helpful was a bonus - the main reason for the rating was the food. We were on the island for almost three weeks and tried the same dish at different restaurants more than once - each time, the one at La Tavernetta was the better one. During our three weeks there,...

Make sure you book as you won't get a table between 7 and10 as all tables are full .Try the mussel soup or the sea food pasta not to mention the risotto .

My husband and I went here based on TA reviews and were able to sit outside at 7:30 without a reservation but the restaurant was filled by 8:00 and people were then turned away. We ordered the house wine which was very good and quite inexpensive. We then ordered the breaded swordfish to share along with the tomato salad. We... More

Very nice dinner on terrace in a small lively street in Ortengia. This place was recommended by our B&B host and we don't regret: friendly staff... seafood pasta dishes were excellent. Good Value for money 😀

Even on a Weds in October you must book a table if you want to eat here. I had booked for 7.30pm and when I arrived the queue was out the door & they were telling people to return at 9pm. I'm always dubious of Trip Advisor reviews but after I'd finished my meal I could understand why. I had... More

Perhaps best of trip, we ate here twice while we stayed in Ortigia (Siracusa). Warmly welcomed both evenings, the second time greeted by name. A warm salad of pulpo with oil, lemon & parsley; a perfect fritto misto of calamari, gamberi rossi, and small fish; pasta with bottarga di tonno and mint (!!!); linguine del mare, with cockles, truffi di...

Advised by the nice receptionist in our hotel, we went to this restaurant. We chose to sit outside in the relatively busy street. In combination with an unsteady table an authentic experience was guaranteed. The service was adequate and we enjoined our experience. As a primi I had the pasta swordfish and as a secondi the lemon sea bass. Both... More
