We had heard this restaurant offered interesting cuisine and were quite curious about it.
They have a very nice dehors alongside the restaurant and are located in the center of Ortigia. However, the food was a deception. It was not bad but not great...nothing memorable!

They tried a concept which did not work for us: a fusion of Sicilian tastes and French bistro-like cuisine. Not a success really...but this is a question of personal preferences!

Service however was very friendly and accommodating! And again, location was perfect.

Nice change from typical Sicilian food, charming courtyard atmosphere somewhat marred by the blasting TV from the house at the end of it - not part of the restaurant. But you can eat inside as well. Limited menu written on a chalkboard.

After reading many good thing about this Bistrot,we decided to try it. We made a reservation, and easily found the place - from Fonte Aretusa you have to go on Via Giuseppe Maria Capodieci and the 4 - th street on left is Via Roma..
We got seated on an outside alley, all the tables was full,cosy ,lively atmosphere.
The service was friendly,the menu unusually presented at the table,written on a mini blackboard,the excellent wine list was hand written,plenty of very good local wine to choose from.
The food was great : we ordered salmon with pistachios,the best salmon so far,and steak,also very good and nice presented,one of the best steak ever !
For desert ,we got profiteroles and chocolate cake ,booth were delicious.
It was one of the loveliest dinners in 2 weeks in Sicily,the price was also reasonable,around 60 Eur for 2 main course,2 deserts and a bottle of wine.

This is an excellent restaurant located in one of the beautiful stone buildings on via Roma in Syracusa. Everything from the food to the wine and service were excellent. Further, the setting is romantic and loaded with ambiance. A dining highlight!

I had my birthday celebration here this month and it was terrific. The food was exquisite and the wine was divine. A must for anyone in the area of Ortigia!
