This place is run by some great young entrepreneurs and chefs creating gourmet versions of classic Sicilian dishes. You can try the octopus and fried potatoes salad, wonderful carbonara, or a whole host of other recipes. But, you shouldn't leave here without trying the Caponata di tonno. This is one of Sisley's most classic dishes going back to Roman times.... More

After a seafood starter called sea tris, where i enjoyed a polpo salad and caponata, i got lasagna which was great. Winw and dessert were ok. The view was unbelivable on the sea!

We only stopped here for a coffee, but the guys were super friendly in helping us navigate our way through the parking and traffic regulations - definitely amongst the friendliest restaurateurs in Sicily!

We stopped at aLevante for a coffee and snack while walking around Ortigia. It is located between the castle and the Jewish baths. It has a lovely outlook to the sea, and we sat at the outdoor tables. We had coffee along with grilled vegetables and salads - we were looking for something without meat or cheese after being in...

We went here primarily based oil trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. It was a cold day but they were open despite it being the low season. We couldn't eat outside because it was too windy and cold in mid-December. Tables inside in the cosy restaurant were a squeeze but they were incredibly accommodating and made a table... More

Stumbled on aLevante mid-day on a beautiful October day. Surprisingly reasonable prices for the best food of our Sicily trip. Small, unpretentious and friendly atmosphere. Overlooking the Mediterranean. Try the home-made pasta with fresh tuna and pistachio sauce or Tagliata di pollo. Only disappointment was to find it closed for supper when we returned that same evening.

We came across aLevante by accident whilst exploring Ortigia and were delighted that we did. Staff were lovely explaining the whole menu and they are obvious very passionate about their food. The food was exceptional so tasty and beautifully presented. My husband is still raving about having the best octopus he's ever had!! Would definitely recommend and will certainly return... More

We came across this cafe by chance as we found parking outside. We were lucky we did. The food is freshly cooked, the staff are nice and friendly and the Ricotta cake was amazing! The food is soured locally and the menu changes daily.
