Maybe because it was a Tuesday but restaurant was nearly empty. Pizza was good but pasta was on the salty side. We visit frequently but this time we were disappointed.

If you are looking for a restaurant that doesn't just do fish this is the best option near the marina! They of course do salads, meat and seafood too, but location is good and service to match. Good value and highly recommended!

If you are looking for really good food, u must go to this restaurant !!! The best pizza and also the antipasti " crudi " . The owner has a lot experience in his famous restaurant in the north of Italy, he is always there !!! Ask him what's best fresh fish of the day !!!! Perfect !!!!

Orsa Minore is a descent restaurant with decent prices and good quality food. Plus their is amble parking. The service is a tad slow. This may have to do with the fact that it's a family owned restaurant. Conclusion: Orsa Minore is a good restaurant. But far from the best in Marzamemi. If I could I would give it 3.5... More

Visited here with my wife and an Italian friend in early May 2012. The restaurant is conveniently located close to the marina area about 1.5Km from the picturesque old village centre of Marzamemi.

If you are in Marzememi you should try Orsa Minore, there are several reviews on this website where the visitors were dissapointed, it is a shame, but restaurants are not all the same, and this restaurant has some very strong points. We have found that the best way to get the best is to ask the owner to bring what... More
