Great pasta & dessert! Pasta ai ricci and frutti di mare were excellent! Parfait alla mandorla with choclate fondant exquisite! Recommended and will be visiting again for sure!

Excellent place to have a dinner close to the harbour and the market, especially first courses with pasta and fresh fish. Don't hesitate asking the staff for the best of the day.
Selection of wines and prices are definitely good.

Walked past this place many times before finally giving it a try based on some of our Italian friend's recommendations. Food was very good, as was service, etc. but we felt a bit "stung" by the prices of our second plates (fresh fish) compared to other places in Ortigia. When we reported this to the same friends they agreed we'd been overcharged. There are other places on this island with equal quality of food, service, etc. for far less than what they charge here. For this reason we won't be going back.

We have traveled to Siracusa two years in a row and both times have eaten more than once at Il Porticciolo. The seafood is terrific: don't miss the frittura di paranza, which is a mixture of lightly breaded and perfectly fried tiny sepia, calamari, shrimp, and fish. Incredibly tender and delicious. We've always enjoyed the seafood at Il Porticciolo, but the last time there we also had one of the most delicious risottos I have ever had. Although it was a generous portion, I couldn't bear to leave one grain of rice behind. Risotto is not a Sicilian specialty, but you wouldn't know it from the way that it was prepared here. The wine list is good and reasonably priced and we surprisingly had one of the best coffees here that we had anywhere during our visit (and we had a lot of good coffee). The owner is an interesting fellow: ask him about the photos of musicians that grace one of the walls.
