I brought my friend to Ortygia for her birthday dinner. And although we both had diet restrictions,Chef Gaetano was able to whip up some amazing dinners for us! I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant, the amazing food selections and it's cozy atmosphere!

Amazing dinner in authentic Sicilian “home”! Chef Gaetano made the swordfish soft as puree, spaghetti with bottarga as we were on the Mediterranean, the showcase of main courses with great style and delicious taste!
