We arrived here at 2ish on a hot afternoon after sightseeing in Siracusa. What joy to find the Montalbano office! Yes another fan here. Just as big a joy was finding that we could park just at the end of the road for nothing, parking in these towns is free between 1ish and 3 or 4. Perfect. The little baroque square was calm and mostly empty so we just sat down and were quickly served cold water, very grateful for that as it was so hot. We both had pasta, mine was really good a sort of pasta norma, very yummy , we had the rough old house red which suited it all as we sat looking at the gorgeous architecture. The staff were lovely. It was so enjoyable that we returned about the same time the next day and this shows how lovely the staff are. I ordered a pasta dish but didn't like it, ( I'm not fussy) , it was entirely my taste and nothing to do with their cooking , so I swapped it for a pizza , imaginative toppings, yummy. They were so sweet about it and only charged half for the abandoned pasta, we said we would pay full price but they said no. A great experience on both days, you also get to watch daily life and noticed the same people at this cafe both days, everyone was so friendly just excellent.
