“We will return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

Last year in Ortigia a friend and I, from Canada, dined many times at this restaurant. We followed the suggestions of our friendly host and chef, Rosario, and were delighted each time.. We enjoyed the delicious pasta dishes and the seafood dishes were wonderful. Rosario is "uno chef meraviglioso"
We both like to cook and asked about ingredients and methods and he was kind enough to give us some recipes to try. We are returning to Ortegia this fall and look forward to once again dining at Porto Grande Ristorante.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013 via mobile

We were walking down Via dei Mille and thought Ristorante Porto Grande looked a pleasant place to have lunch. It was in fact exceptionally good. The young waiter was extremely helpful, and his suggestions were excellent. Not many vegetarian options, so he offered to arrange spaghetti con funghi. The spinach contorni was wonderful (not salty), and we all loved the main dishes chosen. After lunch, we were offered a digestive - a cinnamon liqueur made by the chef - which was absolutely delicious. This was a great place to spend an hour or so.

This restaurant is one of the best during our trip to Sicily. The staff is very kind and their suggestions are always perfect. The antipasti of mixed Fish dish is really amazing. Highly recommended to everyone!

“A meal to remember”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

Went as part of a group of 20. The first course was typical Sicilian anti pasti, we lost count after about 10 different plates were brought to us. Absolutely delicious, though the "raw" bacon was not a favourite. Most of us would have been content to leave it at that, but were presented with a second course of rice and pasta with seafood. Again, not to be faulted. The service was charming, lovely smiley waiter. Wine a bargain €4 per person.
