Reviewed August 9, 2013

We tried out several lovely restaurants during our honeymoon in Syracuse and ended up coming back to Giove for our last night. Penne Norma is the best we found in town and the wine list has some lovely stuff on it, heartily recommended.

“The best restaurant in Syracuse”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

This is definitely the best restaurant in Syracuse! The food is gorgeous, just delicious! The restaurant is located away from crowds of tourists, it's hidden and not so many people know about it, so...from one hand didn't want to write this review - selfishly want to keep it just for myself. The restaurant is cosy. Each time I'm there I don't want to leave. The stuff is very friendly. To cut along story short, each time we go to Syracuse, we know the place which will not disappoint.

“Intimate and welcoming: decent food”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Slightly away from the main tourist traps of Siracusa this little place has outdoor seating up a narrow stepped alleyway. Obviously family run: the service is friendly and the food good. Tasty swordfish in white wine to start with: good mussels in lemon. Generous mixed grill of meat (the sausage was the highlight). Very nice atmosphere. 78 Euros for 2 was slightly below the normal price for this part of Sicily.

“Local fresh non tourist food”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Firstly I don't understand other reviews that don't rate this place, if you come to this part of the world surely you'd order local seafood specialties not run of the mill tourist stuff. We took the time to speak to the chef and waiter who were both very obliging (and our Italian is awful) as a result we received the best seafood meals we've had in Italy bar none. The meals were mouth wateringly good, very reasonably priced (70 euro all up for 2 and we ate plenty), the service and atmosphere couldn't be faulted, it added to an already excellent day. Having eaten at restaurants nearly every day for the past 2 months this ranks at the very top. I am in the process of asking the chef for some recipes or at least some hints, his polpe and calamaridish with capers, etc. is to die for.

“Owner-Chef was wonderful”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

WOW....we chose this place for the ambiance as it is UP a stairway-alley and was the perfect place to relax with a good meal. White linens on the tables and great wine. The Chef actually brought out the meat before he cooked it to show us what we were getting as the communications were limited. We had the most delicious food here and so many courses! When we were finished, the server (wife?) brought us after dinner Lemonicello and Canoli at no charge. It was a very good choice and reasonably priced in comparison to other places!
