One of the best places ever--almost too much food, but so good and so creative. Would certainly go there again. This place knows it's business. Swordfish presented in ways nothing like the dry swordfish seen in other restaurants. Octopus actually tasty, sweet and tender, not the usual rubber band kind.

We are currently travelling around Sicily and loving every moment of it. I had never realised what an incredibly fertile and vibrant country this is - always thought of it as sort of run-down and poor - but nothing could be further from the truth. The history of the place is also amazing - Siracusa has to be visited! Also... More

Had the menu of the day which consisted of hot and cold starters followed by a main course of your choice between couscous and pasta. Spent 82 Euros for 2 menus of the day and 4 beers. The food was EASILY worth twice the amount in both quality and most definitely quantity. Amazing restaurant, even better staff, and the best... More

Fast service, good front-of-house guy, good wine suggestions, even honest enough to suggest we might be ordering too much food! Great memories.

We lunched here on a whim, and are so glad we did. It serves the most wonderful food, especially fish. Have the tasting menu-type seafood antipasti starter - it's just a series of the most wonderful treats. The service is terrific, prompt and friendly. A great restaurant, very highly recommended.

As we entered the restaurant we were warned the restaurant was a fish restaurant only. As we were going through the menu, our friendly waiter advised us to go for set antipasti menu. It was a great culinary adventure. From tuna carpaccio to cod each dish was more delicious than the other. We enjoyed the generous mouth watering starters so... More

Food is just amazing. I had the swordfish for lunch on the 5th Sept and Cous Cous con pesce for dinner on the 7th. Both dishes cooked to perfection. Service first class, waiter has a lovely manner. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We were delighted to find this great seafood restaurant -- we just wandered by and it looked so appealing we decided to give it a try. This is a family restaurant with one brother as head chef and the other as head waiter. Their specialty is the "hot and cold seafood starters" an unassuming title which doesn't prepare you for...

We stopped in for lunch here whilst wandering through the city and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The hot and cold antipasti were both excellent - lots of fresh fish beautifully cooked (or marinated for the cold...) and we followed that with fish of the day (snapper with almond flakes - lovely) and gnocchetti in tomato sauce. In... More
