We spotted that place during lunch time and decided to get in. First, we were warmly welcome by the manager (owner?) and the server. As we were taking a bus shortly after, we just had two plates: risotto del mare and couscous del mare. Both were very tasty. Yummy! Too bad we didn't have time to try more plates.

We did not have trouble finding this restaurant because it was right next to our hotel, but it is a little bit out of the way. Ortigia is small enought that you can walk to anything, and this is worth finding.

It is in an old cavernous building so has great character. The service is excellent and you are greeted with a complimentary and delicous bruschetta. All of our courses were beautifully and tastfully prepared freash seafood and vegetables. I had mussels and shrimp/ seafood raviolli that were excellent and my partner really enjoyed his swordfish.

If you walk along the water front it is just up one block so with the right directions you will not have trouble finding it.

A little bit difficult to find, but we just asked one guy and he knew. Its situated close to the market(50m distance) and it was a great place to eat lunch after looking first at all the good stuff at the market:) I bet the restaurant also buy the ingredient here! Just so fresh& deliciuos!!The owner Enrico (?) was 100% service minded and we trusted him(after reading about other recommandations) to decide what to eat. Because of hot summer time we had fish. we appreciate good fish and was not disapointed:) It was so good that we even came back for our last meal in Siciliy that day. We then tried hand made pasta. I recommend it if you love pasta.Welcoming staff with big smiles. Just try it and you know what I mean:)ps. dont miss out the dessert;)

The scoppolaricchi fritti (baby cuttlefish) were perfectly fried and crisp. The panzerotti al pomodoro were al dente and the sauce tangy. Service was good even though there were few tourists this time of year in Ortigia. The antipasti buffet had lots of olives, potato, and vegetable dishes such as caponata. Prices were fair at Euro 8 - 10 for primi or secondi ... significantly less than other restaurants on the other side of Ortigia.
