The menu is unique without being precious. I don't think you can go wrong in this restaurant. They are rightly proud of the cuisine. We've been to Italy five times, and this was one of our best meals.

My husband and I were looking for something special for our last night in Sicily, and we came across this place by chance. Food was delicious and not overwhelming, and the wine was expertly selected by the sommelier. We would thoroughly recommend this place.

Italian restaurants quite often feel like a family affair, a warm friendly place where one can relax and enjoy comfort food. Don Camillo is not that place. It is an elegant formal restaurant in vaulted rooms with a highly refined menu and a two kilo wine list. The average wine price per bottle is two to four times what you... More

We were very much looking forward to a special meal at Don Carmillo, comfortably the most expensive meal of our trip to Siracusa. Unfortunately, it was also one of the most disappointing. I cannot give it less than 3 stars because it is certainly no worse than average but for the price paid, I expected much more. I would suggest... More

Don Camillo is an old fashioned restaurant serving great ingredients prepared with care. Our fish was superb as was the veal. The service was charming and the sommelier very helpful and knowledgeable. For a special occasion, the added little tasting extras made it a more glamorous experience. The room itself, surrounded by wine cellars is exquisite.
