Macalle is one of those finds you remember for ever. We used Trip Advisor to find it while walking around Siracusa on our first night and fortunately they could fit the six of us in. The owner/chef greeted us personally and made us feel welcome....More

This is a very nice restaurant serving Sicilian dishes with a modern twist. The location may put some people off as it is in a nondescript back street but don't let that bother you. I was particularly impressed with the very good, very attentive service....More

Very nice family restaurant with personal attention form the chef. Limited menu but everything prepared especially and cooked to perfection. The wine list is good and the house wine is local sicillian wine which is really good. There is seating inside and outside.

Macallè Sicilian Bistrot is a place, where you can taste a traditional Sicilian kitchen in a contemprary way. The chef's philosophy is to transform his grandmother's recepies into modern dishes, paying particular attention to seasonality and using exclusively fresh ingredients of grand Sicilian excellency. This is also enhanced by the vicinity of the Ortigia food market, place of important discoveries of local products such as vegetable, fish, seafood, cheese etc. The wine cellar offers a selection of mainly organic Sicilian wines that represent the major areas of vocation of every autochtonous vine. The restaurant is a place where the joy of eating excellent food meets art and expositions and is a starting point for an intercultural exchange between locals and an international audience.
