I was here twice 4 years ago, and they recognized me when I came back last week! Not sure how that is possible, but then again, I recognized them as well :) They really know how to treat meat, and the slowcooked lamb is a treat. The starter with salmon, lemon, chive... mustard and strawberries(!) actually works really well. Nice... More

Visited for dinner after a late heavy lunch so we only tried the main courses and soup, salad and escargots. My main course of ribeye beef steak was way too salty, but my friends like their tuna tartare and duck. Escargots were good. The two young waitresses were cheerful and provided good service and that's what I would remember rather... More

We are here on the first night of a short stay in Siracusa, on the recommendation of the landlord of the flat we were renting. He was right but there menu is a bit challenging - hand written in italian/french with no translation written or verbal likely. However the food is excellent and the menu clearly changes with what is... More

We really liked sitting in the outside yard on a warm evening. The service was excellent and the food was better than a lot we had in Sicily. Not amazing but decent. I think it is a good choice for Ortigia.

We had been in Sicily for over a week and have had some great food. This dinner exceeded our high expectations based on their reviews. From beginning to end one dish after the other was amazing. Don't miss this place. We typically don't want to be locked into reservations for dinner, but well worth it.

We had our FAVORITE meal in Sicily here! It was the best. My palate is pretty spoiled and this place didn't let me down. We have spent over a week traveling through Sicily and trying a lot of the local specialties. We have had some amazing food. We decided to try this restaurant for a change of style. Every course...

It's an amazing blend of Sicilian and French cuisine: excellent starters, excellent fish and meat courses, excellent wine list. The place is super well decorated, with color contrasts among the different walls and a mix of contemporary, ancient and stylish elements. Both staff and owner are super kind and caring. We have been there twice and will be back very... More
