Excellent swordfish (a speciality of the house) my wife had heres with pasta and I had mine in a tomato sauce but the whole menu looked good, it was very quiet when we visited as it was early evening well before most Sicilians dine so cannot comment on the ambience. Would definitely eat there again.

Perhaps a bit posher than we wanted for lunch, but we did not regret it. Cover charge gives you loads of delicious bread, grissini and a rosemary fried bread. Service was friendly, our fish (sea bream, fried mixed fish) fresh and tasty, the teenage girls pasta was gobbled up with delight. Right on the harbour, great views, €20 for a... More

The location of the restaurant is good, with nice view. But the food is awefull ! As a main dish we ordered the grilled seafood. It was terrible ! I think they did not clean the grill for a long time. So the taste of the fish was bitter, can you imagine. So don't eat here, they don't care and... More

The restaurant is situated just by a bridge on the entry to Ortigia and has a very nice outside terrace overlooking the sea and the mainland. An extensive if traditional menu features well executed pasta and fish dishes. However, the service was terribly slow and almost rude and the bill when it came bore little resemblance to what we had... More

We were looking for a restaurant by the water that was not typically touristy, and this was a great choice, right near the bridge to Ortygia. The service was excellent, the view (moonlight on water) was lovely, and the food was great. We enjoyed: the pasta with sea bass, a nicely cooked chicken fillet, and a sea bass fillet fixed... More

This is a classic restsurant in Ortigia downtown Siracusa. The antipasti table is magnificent and I suggest you pick abundant doses of caponata, pipi arrustuti, melanzane, cipudde di Giarratana, Sardegna, and other great dishes. Then we went directly to fresh tuna fish cooked the sicilian or siracusana style: very good! Desserts are OK where the cannolo is with cow ricotta... More
