This is a must-visit place in Ortigia. Within the fantastic, bustling market (great fish) and the sandwich 'creator' is so friendly and happy! The sandwich is piled high with fresh vegetables, cheese and meat. You will never eat a better sandwich!! Go, go, go!!

The best sandwiches we've ever eaten. Very unusual, but for Sicily not so unexpected place. Hearty people, extraordinary sandwiches. The price is great. Be sure to come when you are in Ortigia!

We didn’t have to wait for our sandwiches, got to go inside. Of course we missed the “show”, but the man who made our sandwiches were nice. The place is overrated, I expected more. The bread is a standard baguette, and the filling is too...More

It is not a restaurant, more like a deli. For our first time there, they prepared a sample platter of their meats and cheeses with some bread which we sat and ate like a meal. It was filling! On my second visit i ordered the... More
