Great choice of wines, very inventive fusion cuisine, combo of Sicilian and French, friendly service that had us laughing. Generous portions. Popular place; make a reservation.

We visited this restaurant on our third visit to Ortigia and wished we'd eaten there before. The food is French with a local twist and we loved every course. The staff were all friendly and very polite and attentive. Couldn't fault the food - can recommend the tuna starter and lamb shank in particular. Can't wait to go back when... More

This restaurant is amazing! Full of locals on the night we went - as in FULL! Bursting out onto the pavement! Staff friendly and helpful and the FOOD! Yummo!! And to finish off a perfect evening - the best limoncello! You would be missing out on an absolute treat if you did not go here (at least once) while you... More

You can be spoiled for choice of dining options on Ortigia island, particularly when the weather is still nice enough to sit outside in late October. Le Vin was our stand-out choice of the week. Crispy Tuna was the favourite starter - three beautiful tender pieces of tuna in a deep fried crunchy casing - Beautiful. The Croque Monsieur was... More

Very nice food, great advice from the waiting staff and warm atmosphere. This is not 100% traditional Sicilian food (some dishes are very French) but the basic rules of simple cooking with the best ingredients are there. Highly recommended.

Amazing food, good wine and mostly friendly service. I had a tuna steak that was freshly fished locally according to the waiter. Very good value for money

Having been disappointed by a 'local' trattoria the evening before, we decided to visit this rather more up-market place having read the trip adviser reviews. We got a table easy enough and the waiter talked us through the menu and recommended a local wine (from Noto) which pleased us. The wine arrived and it wasn't great tbh. A bit rough... More

Small restaurant on Via Roma. Very nice patio for dining, all old rocks etc. The friendly owners greets diners at the door and makes suggestions for food and wine choices. He wanted us to try two different starters which turned out to be a good idea as both were delicious (cheese cannoli baked + goat cheese and bacon crostini). Also... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a couple who dined next to us the evening before and we were not dissapointed. My wife had the steak and I had the black pork with a cream source. Both were excellent. We sat in the pleasant courtyard with subdued lighting. Service was very excellent.

Had a wonderful dinner here! Two of us ordered a grouper special that was very good. One of us ordered a steak and the other grilled tuna. Atmosphere was wonderful and wait staff was cordial and helpful. Be aware that their address is 115 via Roma, not 15 via Roma like it says in some guide books! Would DEFINITELY go... More
