We arrived at 11pm to have a very late dinner. Our host Elisa was magnificent, this was in August 2016, sorry this review is late, I just found the restaurant card. Elisa explained the menu and even recomended a wine which suprisingly had our surname....More

We went with a couple of friends and we had been looking for a place all over ortigia for a good lunch and every single place was closed or full, and I was very pleased to see this one wasn't! It's not cramped at all...More

We ate outside. The draught beer is very good. The food is high quality. Plate of cold meat and chess again (boring, I know). The service was attentive and amusing. It is darkly lit and attracts a younger crowd. I really liked it.More

This place does not open until 7.30 in the evenings and since we arrived right on the dot we ate in solitary splendour. No problem with that since it meant the service was slick and the food hot (when it needed to be). We shared...More

Nice quiet place not far from the sea. Fantastic for lunch or a casual dinner. The chicken wings and the chips were sensational. Andrea was a perfect host as well even showing me his wine cellar. I recommend a visit here.More
