Description: Pizzeria Restaurant Caravaggio is located in the heart of the historical center of Ortigia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Surrounded by historical sites, it is an example of the great legacies of the past. Walking through the streets of the historic center, take a dip in the atmosphere of the past, feel the breath of the great history of eras and peoples who once lived and now live here. Yes, we are not on a busy street with windows and seductive advertising. But if you turn from Corso Mateotti, and there, at the corner of via Mirabella and via Dione, is a good place where you can enjoy the delights of the local cuisine in an atmosphere of tranquility, comfort and kindness. We have all the capabilities to service the tourist groups up to 60 people. To do this, we have developed several tourist menu with the price range of 15 to 30 euros, which includes antipasti, first, second, dessert and drinks.

“CARAVAGGIO FOREVER!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

AMAZING RESTAURANT,WITH AN AMAZING FOOD AND SERVICE AS WELL!!!!REALLY I HAVE NEVER EATEN IN MY LIFE SOME SEAFOOD LIKE THAT!!!MANY CONGRATULATIONS TO THE KITCHEN AN TO THE WAITER AS WELL FOR HIS RACCOMANDATIONS!!!Location: Good location IN ORTIGIA ISLAND, SIRACUSA. Easy to find. Close to great shopping,temples, and not too far from the sea.
Interior: Lovely authentic Italian. Warm colours and interesting things to look at.
Atmosphere: We went on a Sunday evening about 7 30pm. It was full with people in and out all the time so had a good buzz. I imagine on a sat and also during the week it keeps a friendly and sociable vibe.
Food: AMAZING! Pasta that melts in your mouth, sauces that ooze flavour and the best choccolate souffle' I have ever had. Just got back from Genoa, Italy and this places serves just as good food as the real deal.
Service: Friendly and helpful. They know they have good food!

Would recommend this little place to anyone, particularly those that have a soft spot for Italian cuisine.

“Truly a Taste of Sicily”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

The food and service was excellent. We went for the chefs special which consisted of several courses including oysters carpaccio of tuna and prawns. The fish was fresh and delicious. Our waiter Michelle was very animated and friendly offering advice and humour to make our evening at Caravaggio's a memorable experience. We got to meet the very modest chef too. Will definitely return.

We had lunch at Caravaggio and it was the best food we had in Sicily on our 9-day trip! And the service was excellent! We highly recommend this restaurant.

Caravaggio pizzeria and Ristorante, certainly gets my vote, we stumbled across it last night, were welcomed by an enthusiastic waiter called Michele and his skills and friendliness started our evening off well. We chose the pasta of the day - salmon with zucchini flowers pesto - unbelievable we also had a tuna siracusana which superb and the pork fillet had a glossy caramelisation that was delicate and flavoursome. The dessert of pistachio panda cotta with strawberry coulis was the best ever. The venue was not busy - we were just so fortunate to find this true gem,. Alessandro the young talented chef is very skillful.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We came here because the kids really wanted pizzas. The waiter was friendly and gave them an easel and felt tipped pens while they waited. The pizzas were OK but nothing special. If we had wanted another pizza meal, we'd probably have gone somewhere else rather than return here.
