Had lunch here and enjoyed it so much. The fish antipasti cold and warm were just divine and worth visiting this restaurant just to endulge in these. The fish couscous was also good, but save room for the cannallo with warm figs. The service was friendly and offered good advice. A definite Sicilian culinary high point.

Still the best restaurant in the area. Been there for two times, now. First in 2013 and again in March 2017. Absolutely great. Fish at its best. The place is known for their starters, so do not miss them. Great Service, btw.

When entering this restaurant we asked the waiter if there were vegetarian options. One of us does not eat fish or meat. He had to ask the chef. We could hear him say: what he has on the menu thats it! So no vegetarian options. For a restaurant and for a chef its crazy not to make a simple veggy... More

We had a super lunch at "Il Locandiere"! The waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable; he suggested we try the large hot and cold selection of starters. It was one delicious dish after the other. All made with the freshest ingredients. Accompanied by a good white Sicilian wine. One of the things that struck me when we first came in... More

One of the best places ever--almost too much food, but so good and so creative. Would certainly go there again. This place knows it's business. Swordfish presented in ways nothing like the dry swordfish seen in other restaurants. Octopus actually tasty, sweet and tender, not the usual rubber band kind.

We are currently travelling around Sicily and loving every moment of it. I had never realised what an incredibly fertile and vibrant country this is - always thought of it as sort of run-down and poor - but nothing could be further from the truth. The history of the place is also amazing - Siracusa has to be visited! Also... More

Had the menu of the day which consisted of hot and cold starters followed by a main course of your choice between couscous and pasta. Spent 82 Euros for 2 menus of the day and 4 beers. The food was EASILY worth twice the amount in both quality and most definitely quantity. Amazing restaurant, even better staff, and the best... More
