This restaurant was recommended by our hotel Villa Schuler and did not disappoint ! Ate there 3 times during our holiday. Lovely local dishes. The veal dishes were also very good. Busy place so would recommend booking.

Good food, good service, clean and convenient. Can't really complain except that the dining room could have had a little more atmosphere for my taste. Nevertheless, all good!

Who would like to enjoy a dinner without any additional chi chi, try the Al Giardino. True Italian, very good taste, super service (not demanding but friendly an fast at the table when needed). Sea food very fine, pasta as at home of an Italian mama. Prices reflect the quality and the service. Ok. Enjoy

The staff is nice and helpful. The swordfish was dry, the calamari-fritti was just like some gumi. The tiramisu was not bad. In the end we received some nice dessert wine for free.

Very good with excellent service. Family run over three generations with an excellent entrée menu. Well worth an evening meal stop with easy access and not much climbing up and down to reach it. Excellent family dining experience and great conversation with the owner about its history and that of the city and surrounding area. A place to relax after... More

Actually went there twice. The veal in a masala sauce is good as is the ravioli with gorgonzola and pistacchio. A very reasonably priced and good house red.

This is one of a trio of restaurants along a street. This one's menu and prices appealed most. The decor has been recently re-done and diners can see in the immaculate kitchen. The Gorgonzola ravioli is outstanding and the grilled swordfish was well done.

I had the Octupus & potato salad as well as their pasta with tomato sauce. Certainly fits the bill as an Italian pasta that was really tender. I had a pasta in another restaurant in Siracusa that wasn't ranked as high on tripadvisor and would consider that place to be slightly better. The salad itself wasn't as fancy or tasty... More

We hadn't booked but were shown to a table in the window, which was fine. We had 3 courses each plus a bottle of red wine from the Planeta winery, all for 76 euros which seems to me to be reasonable value as all the food was tasty and the service was good.
