We offer French/Sicilian cuisine in a small, intimate, indoor or outdoor setting. Where many venues offer an array of glitz and glitter, the attraction of Ortygia is its eclectic charm, unparalleled backdrop, the beauty of nature and an abiding sense of La Bella Vita! Add the ambiance of candles, torches, lights, music and laughter, Ortygia glows with its own brand of beauty that lures people back over and over again. Our distinctive and exceptional cuisine is just another reason so many individuals choose Ortygia to host their special events.
