On the recommendation of our hotel we had dinner here. The food was excellent and my husband wanted a meat dish and was served this wonderful platter of pork. Service was good.

We chanced upon this restaurant as there are so many in Ortega but we were glad we did. We were made very welcome. There was lovely fresh fish on offer. The ravioli was memorable. Service was friendly and we had a very relaxing evening.

This small unassuming restaurant provides great Sicilian food at a reasonable price in Siracusa. The build your own salad (select the ingredients and they deliver to you) was an amazing find complemented by a great seafood pasta, and great capuccino.
