We ate here most nights as it was close to out B&B. Portions are generous and everything was fresh, particularly the fish. Sandra made us very welcome and patiently translated the menu for us. Very reasonable prices and a choice of sitting inside or out. Inside was very interesting as the decor was fascinating.

This restaurant is very pleasant it sits above the city overlooking the sea below. The staff are helpful, if you like a slightly rustic style of wine, try a half litre of white, in a generous jugful.

A little bit more pricey but not much considering you would probably pay similar prices in Rome. The food was great. So relaxing here!

The view is beautiful but that's where it ends. My husband and our two children were recommended to try Jonico. The service was OK but the food dreadful. We left all the main courses almost untouched. Having been in Siracusa for 10 days and having eaten in many restaurants this was a disappointment. I would never recommend it!

We had a lovely seafood dinner al fresco with the sound of the waves crashing against the rocks. I had the mackerel and it was delicious. Simply seasoned and cooked well. The wine they recommended was gorgeous too. The staff didn't have much English and the menu was in Italian which is always a good sign in my opinion. As... More

I like places where people are friendly and where locals eat. This one is not too far from the place we stayed. We had no reservation but were friendly welcomed and got probably the last table (the photo is of the third visiting). We ate three evenings there and were recognized directly the second time. As most of the times... More

I have been here a few times over the years, the food has always been good but service could be functional and the outside started to look a bit tatty. Well the food is still good and the service was absolutely first rate this time from the owner and his aunt. It's about a 30 min walk out of town... More

We ate several times at this restaurant and were never disappointed. The fish dishes were excellent and the Torta di limone heavenly.

We had dinner at this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and offered excellent views. Due to the weather we ate indoors (they do have an outer area which offers nice views). The waitress could speak some English which was nice since we do not speak Italian. The menu was basic Sicilian fare with pastas, pizza, seafood and... More
