We fortunately found this amazing place along the water. Lovely deck overlooking the sea. Free wifi. Very attentive service and SUPERB food. Had grilled tuna with strawberry compote and baked peaches. Wow. Great taste and value. Highly recommend this gem.

My family stopped at Il Blu after dinner twice during our stay for a late night glass of wine and it was fabulous! We tried the ricotta dessert and chocolate dessert and both were delicious! We were also able to get a wireless internet connection while enjoying our wine which was great as that was our only connection back home :)

We stopped here for lunch on a hot, sunny day and had fantastic salad and fresh ricotta piled high on toated fresh bread, drizzled with olive oil. We were given a very warm welcome as were our children (fresh fruit smoothies were made for the children and the chocolate dessert was very much enjoyed by our 10 year old). Prices were really very reasonable and the little terrace was wonderful in the sun. We tried a glass of white wine recommended by the owner and it was delicious.

The building has an unfinished, in-the-middle-of-restoration look on the outside but inside there is a modern, trendy decor that would be nice in the evening. We would definitely come back here either for lunch or for dinner (which is I think a little more sophisticated) in the evening.

Having tired of pizza and pasta this restaurant came as a very welcome change. Great, inventive food, cooked with passion and care. The ingredients are very Sicilian, wonderfully fresh and used much more imaginatively than many other restaurants. We loved the rock music and red interior. The service was wonderful, with Sebastiano advising us on food and wine and then treating us to his very special home made Limontello liquor! We were the only people in, which seemed a shame, but then April is a quiet time. However, a restaurant this great deserves to do well and I have a feeling they are going to need more tables!

We happened upon this place whilst wandering through Ortigia, the old town of Syracuse. Despite it being Easter Monday, and no shops being open, they rustled up a four course meal for 12 people.

It was absolutely delicious Sicilian cuisine made with the freshest ingredients. Particular highlights were the swordfish on red lettuce, and the homemade chocolate fondant cakes. Afterwards they plied us with local Muscat and limoncello, which were delicious.

I'd highly recommend his to anyone visiting Syracuse, it's a hidden gem and a far cry from the touristy rubbish everywhere else.
