Looks like any other tourist restaurant and I was a little disgruntled at the "smoked" fish which seemed very salty but is prepared in a unique way (not your average smoked salmon!). Go for the pasta with seafood and the swordfish. Not that expensive.

Stopped here last week for just 2 beers (small) and 2 scoops of ice cream (one each) and to our astonishment we were charged 22 euros!!! Too stunned to query the price. Really cast a shadow on our day trip to Ortygia. Enough said.

I had the spigola (seabass) as secondi piatti. When the brought my plate it was more potatatoes then sea bass. When you pay 18 euro you expect something more. An ounce is a bit of a disapointment.
