Our favourite meal from 10 nights in Sicily, and that really is saying something! After some initial fun and games getting a table (we were told that all tables outside were reserved, then were taken to a table outside with no explanation after we'd stood umming and ahhing for a while on the merits of eating inside on a lovely evening), the food was exceptional. Superb goats cheese rolls to start, but the secondi were the real stars - delicious sliced duck in honey, and an amazing almond crusted tuna steak with couscous. So tasty!! The wine list was huge, so we asked for a recommendation and it turned out excellent - and reasonably priced too.

Weirdly, a large number of the outside tables remained free throughout the evening, yet we saw quite a few people told to sit inside because outside was "fully booked". Odd behaviour, but great food all the same!

We had two lovely meals here. A little bit of France in Siracusa! We ate in the courtyard and enjoyed beautifully prepared seafood, friendly service and reasonable prices. Meat eaters also have good choices and deserts were luscious.

This was a very good bistro and a wonderful evening with attentive staff and good food. The profiteroles were especially good. However, from the reviews I had expected something a little more special. I do not want to be negative as it really was a good choice, but if was expecting a little bit more from the trip-advisor hype.

Nothing too fancy or pretentious about the food here, just excellent quality ingredients that taste amazing. Succulent steak, melt in the mouth beef bourguinon, the most divine potatoes, delicious desserts and velvety Nero D'avola! Can't go wrong really!

This is a lovely little restaurant with great wines by the glass. Particularly loved the salmon carpaccio with melon. We went here twice during our stay and enjoyed it both times.
