Visited this place about 8 years ago, thought that we would track it down again as we enjoyed it so much on our last visit to Italy. Well, I can tell you we were not disappointed. The food was just as amazing as it was the last time. The ambience was perfect and the staff were happy and provided excellent... More

Eat in or out but book early as this is a popular place with the locals. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is sensational, freshly cooked and reasonably priced. Seafood dishes are a specialty. The mixed seafood to begin followed by the roast whole sea bass and the seared whole tuna with caponata were delicious.

Just like tou would want your nonna to make for you -- very friendly staff, one of the cooks is a professional musician. If you are lucky enough to go late at the end of an evening, she just might sing for you!

In a nice spot to observe the world go by. Friendly, genuine staff. Wide range of dishes at reasonable prices. I suspect if you are local there's various off-menu options also. We had a pasta dish with tuna roe. Stuck to wine, but "craft" beer also available.

Found this nice place when looking for lunch. Good location, nice little square off the main street. Two of us had pasta for lunch - quite generous portions, but tasty. Lasagne also good. We went back in the evening, and had bruschetta to start, which was lovely, if a touch singed on the edges. Main course steak and chicken fillets... More

Really delicious - one of the best lunches during our one week stay in Sicily. Would particularly recommend the bruschetta and the swordfish caponata. So reasonably priced too.

We’ve stumbled on this fantastic, friendly place while discovering little streets of Ortigia. Staff was very inviting and made us feel very welcomed. We’ve had octopus salad and mussels - all fresh, delicious and very reasonably priced. I’d definitely recommend it!

Came across restaurant in side alley. Waiter was very accommodating, spoke good English and gave great advice on food. The tuna capatona was lovely and the crumbed swordfish accompanied by the suggested orange salad was amazing. Definitely recommend and come back again.
