Can't recommend it enough, the food is great, easy to find, and if you have an outdoor table you'll love it. Book in advance as it is very popular. Warm thanks to the staff (Arnaud in particular) for their friendliness !

We ate here during a two-day stay in Ortigia and probably made our best choice. We had two excellent starters, homemade burrata and eggplants, as well as perfect main course (including raw tuna) and desserts. We would go back.

After finally getting a reservation here we were particularly excited about our meal but we were very disappointed. We were sat on a table inside the restaurant which was VERY hot and uncomfortable, we were greeted by a waiter who was dressed in shorts and a t shirt and although he did explain the menu to us it was very basic in description and didn't really tell us much.
We ordered 2 starters, Camembert and Mussels, the camembert was perfectly acceptable but the mussels were gritty and of a poor quality for the price (10 euro).
The choice of main course was limited, mainly focusing on a number of steak options and
at this point, we decided to cut our losses (it was too hot!) and paid our bill.
This restaurant will be perfect for some but for us it was a disappointment - there are much better restaurants on the island.

We ate here on the last night of our 3 week wedding/honeymoon trip in Italy and Sicily and it was the perfect last dinner. I loved how they combine French influences to create wonderful and delicious dishes. I had the homemade burrata to start and my husband had the lobster. Both were very good, especially the lobster. We both went for steaks with different sauces and again, they were delicious. Clean plates. We shared a cassata for dessert and a gorgeous bottle of wine.

Very relaxed and enjoyable meal. Some of the tables are slightly close together and we were seated right beside another couple when there were lots of other single tables available but we didn't have a reservation so beggars can't be choosers!

Would definitely go back.

Always impressed by Salvo and Saro. Good patio on the side of the restaurant on the quite side of the street. Love you guys........
