Our hotel recommended this place for a traditional Sicilian meal. It was reasonably priced but was only average in my opinion. The four meals were served staggered rather than together but the service was friendly.

We were the only customers for dinner so the service was good. We ordered 2 glasses of pro secco and both looked like still wine. Not a bubble in sight. We tasted -flat flat wine. The meals were better. My gnocchi with clams was great but my wife was critical of her risotto marinara - too salty and light on... More

I wish I'd read Tripadvisor before going here but my son had eaten s pizza for lunch here and enjoyed it. I ordered roast chicken and I literally got three thin slices of chicken grilled to within an inch of its life. The photo is my son's 'pan pizza' with a slice of my chicken in it - but he... More

Our starters were fine. Prawn cocktail and fried "little fishes and prawns". Lot of work to eat but very tasty. Had to ask for a finger bowl though and this was a messy eat! We are novices when it comes to seafood so took the advice of the owner (?) on Catch of the Day. At €50 a kilo we... More

Good location, not the cheapest restaurant in Ortigia but it is right on the tourist trail. Quick service, no mistakes, very good seafood starters and excellent pizza too. Enjoyed thoroughly by parents and teenagers alike.

This is a tourist trap, we paid 45 euros for two anti pastas, water and four beers. Food was average for a fast food outlet. I am certain there are much better choices in the side streets.

We stumbled on this restaurant without prior plan or knowledge. The design is unassuming, but we were sitting outside, which was pleasant. We had pasta dishes with seafood, and all were really nice and fresh. No fuss, good quality. After some rather mixed experiences in Ortigia and Syracuse (also in restaurants that were warmly recommended by Tripadvisor reviewers), this was... More

I feel a comment has to be made, especially seeing the previous review and the mention of a tourist trap (not my words). Having visited this restaurant within the past seven days and paid a fortune for a mediocre meal, I would like to highlight the visit and unfortunately the rating does not allow nil. Having had an excellent walk... More

People may avoid the restaurant on simple account that it gives the impression of a tourist trap - and the waiters hanging outsite trying to coax visitors into coming inside does not help this much either. Nevertheless, after having visited this restaurant thrice over the span of 4 years, I can say that this is a good restaurant. Situated next... More
