“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013 via mobile

Off the beaten path, and away from the ubiquitous tourist traps, this restaurant served savory Sicilian fare. The tight quarters gave it an informal and unpretentious air that contrasted against the fresh and delicious dishes. Wine recommendations were very accurate.

“Delightful meal - so fresh and innovative!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013 via mobile

Dinner at Dionisio was a pleasant surprise. Started with fried sardines and octopus appetizers, next was gnocchi with shrimp ( no raised eyebrows to split), sea bass and tuna (so fresh), creme caramel for dessert. Wine was crisp white grown in Mt. Etna area, bill was under 100 Euros. Fabulous father and son duo orchestrated entire meal. Wonderful!

“Great atmosphere and very attentive owner & son.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

Our hotel (Algila) recommended this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The charming owner (Alfio) explained every course on the limited menu and his son carefully recommended the wine. We had an excellent evening in great surroundings. We will definitely reurned, if we visit Syracuse again.

“Fabulous service and wonderfull food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

My boyfriend and I were staying in Ortigia for a couple of days so found a few restaurants to visit nearby and ended up here. It was great. The service was amazing - I'm learning Italian so the nice man spoke Italian to me very slowly so I could keep up and gave us some great recommendations. I asked for a glass of prosecco with dinner and got a massive glass which lasted me all meal. Yum!
The food was also wonderful. Recommend sardines for antipasti, cous cous for primi and ricotta mousse for dessert. Yum!
In short - do it, go there :)

“Only average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Recommended by the hotel but a bit disappointing. My starter of raw whitebait was good but my pasta dish was pretty average. Service is very friendly, although I prefer something a bit more authentic - thus felt very geared to the tourist.
