Stumbled on aLevante mid-day on a beautiful October day. Surprisingly reasonable prices for the best food of our Sicily trip. Small, unpretentious and friendly atmosphere. Overlooking the Mediterranean. Try the home-made pasta with fresh tuna and pistachio sauce or Tagliata di pollo. Only disappointment was to find it closed for supper when we returned that same evening.

We came across aLevante by accident whilst exploring Ortigia and were delighted that we did. Staff were lovely explaining the whole menu and they are obvious very passionate about their food. The food was exceptional so tasty and beautifully presented. My husband is still raving about having the best octopus he's ever had!! Would definitely recommend and will certainly return... More

We came across this cafe by chance as we found parking outside. We were lucky we did. The food is freshly cooked, the staff are nice and friendly and the Ricotta cake was amazing! The food is soured locally and the menu changes daily.

The view at the end of the peninsula is wonderful, the staff are helpful and the food was fantastic. We enjoyed a wonderful brunch at the restaurant while sitting outside overlooking the ocean. A perfect stop while walking around Ortigia....

Superb restaurant, freshly prepared food and great service. We eat here five times during our fortnight stay in Ortigia. You may have refreshments anytime, but the evening service doesn't start until 8pm and the tables fill up fast. Booking is advised! Suitable for couples, small groups and families but not a large party. Francesca and Cristene were friendly hosts, nothing... More

We had our favorite meal in Sicily tonight. So many good things to mention here are just a few: Beautiful outdoor location overlooking the water on a little piazza dedicated to the restaurant. We watched the sun set and the moon rise under the lights of a Levante. The food was terrific - my wife and two girls had pasta... More
