5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

Great fresh seafood. Pasta dishes, fried "paranza", grilled squid, everything was so good and tasty. A place to recommend!

“Beautiful meal in rustic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

We chanced upon this restaurant after bumping into an Englishman who lives in Syracuse and he recommended it to us. As in most places in Italy, it wasn't cheap but the quality of the meals for all four us were great. Two teenage boys, my wife and I all had different dishes and enjoyed them all, both pasta and seafood. The sorbetti to follow were the best that we have tried in Sicily thus far. Enjoy!

“Great seafood restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

We were walking from the market and noticed this restaurant. It was on our recommended list so we stopped in, looked at a menu, and made a reservation for that evening. We were very happy we did because the food was wonderful and by 9:00PM, the room was completely full and walk-ins were being turned away.

Our impression was that this is a multigenerational family restaurant. The service was good, the courses came at a good pace. The prices were appropriate for the setting and portion size.

The wine list was not huge, but it was well organized and diverse, with a good selection of Sicilian wines at reasonable prices. We had a bottle of white, then we each had a glass of very good house red with the tuna.

We especially liked our primi – ravioli with langustino and the mussels.

The tuna secondi was also very nice.

Even though they were busy and had people waiting for tables, in typical Italian fashion, we were not hurried.

“Warm welcome and good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Very good pasta siracusana, palermitano, con cerna. Warm welcome by Enrico and his sons. Worth the detour to locate the restaurant.

“Delicious....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

This restaurant took a bit of finding as on a back street. The owner kindly pushed as in as we were dining early by Sicilian standards.
The mixed fish grill was superb.... Friendly service ... Definitely recommend
