This is simply one of the very best fish restaurants in Syracuse. It is located on mainland Syracuse and is roughly a 5 minute drive from Ortygia. They mainly serve fish and I can assure you that it cannot be fresher being situated just at the foot of the sea. Reservation is required and they start serving dinner at 20:30... More

Small but quality menu of fresh seafood. No vegetables on the menu except a salad. We tried the spaghetti with Cuttlefish Ink. My husband liked it a lot. The fried mixed seafood is great, not greasy. We saw others eating platters of steamed mussels. Very popular with the locals. Very reasonably priced. Service was a little slow, but friendly. But... More

I have eaten here back in February and the Food was very good. I paid €28 for myself with first and second piatti and wine. The staff were pleasant but don't seem to write anything down. I have tried to go back a few times but will not go again because during the season every time we went there (made... More

No, the Red Moon is not a Chinese restaurant. But when the full moon rises this part of Sicily, it actually gets pretty spectacular, dark orange, bigger than anywhere else. Now, once you're inside the Red Moon, forget about the red moon. This is the place to go if you love traditional fish and seafood dishes, literally straight out of... More

The night before the Syracuse Malta Regatta, we indulged in spaghetti ai frutti di mare and a mussels' soup to die for! Be prepared to wait, here everything is prepared at the moment for you to eat truly like a local!

Very good Sea Food meal, with fresh mussels and excellent fish and at an affordable and realistic price, the service is a bit strange but does not detract from the experience as long as you have time to eat as everything is cooked to order and with a popular restaurant that can mean having to wait. No doubt I would... More

Nice quiet position , in front of the fishing harbor. Very pleasant particularly for a dinner. Very good and honest food. Let them tell you what it is available . You will not regret it. Good basic wine list. A good wine for a reasonable price. Not a fancy restaurant , basic but of very good quality .

Dinner was family style, with an emphasis on seafood fresh from the Mediterranean, which is only 50 steps away. The atmosphere was casual, and the waitstaff attentive and personable. The restaurant features a great selection of fresh fish. The sea urchin eggs over pasta appear to be a specialty of the region, and we enjoyed every bite!

Fish fresh and good taste. You can choose the fish you want to eat. Pasta with " ricci " and with squid ink taste very good and are my favourite. Also fried fish tastes very good. The location inside the restaurant is not so good but outside the view is relly nice.
