Brilliant location by the Cathedral in part of the Borgias' residence with outside tables when warm and an elegant dining room in an arched underground area that used to be the stables of the palace. This is a smart, upmarket destination and costs more than the standard fare in Siracusa, but we had a very good meal including wine for... More

We had some great dishes. Especially the raw fish starter was excellent. But one of the main courses was inedible. Overcooked fish that even smelled. When we mentioned it, the response was that it is supposed to be like that. I can't believe that.

This restaurant is on the square and at night the view is breath-taking. My description of the food will be totally inadequate, it was good. We had the five course seafood tasting and because I had seen octopus on the menu, I asked if the chef could include an octopus course and he obliged. The meal started with complimentary prosecco...

On a stormy night in October this was an elegant, warm and welcoming haven. The dining room is a lovely crypt like space of exposed stone arches, subtley lit. Tables are well spaced and candle lit. Accoustics good for conversation. We were early arrivals, the dining room soon filled to capacity. Service from start to finish was excellent - friendly,... More

The staff was very friendly, trying their best to speak to us in English, we found it very cute. The food was good and we enjoyed the complementary drinks and amuses. The view of the Duomo was lovely, being lit a night. The price is relatively high, but the location, staff and food are worth the price!

The Regina Lucia is a wonderful restaurant with very friendly service. We had the fish menue which was really excellent, tasty, very nicely presented and with a very nice selection of wines.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at the Regina Lucia. We sat at an outdoor table overlooking the Piazza and Duomo on a perfect evening in October. Most importantly, all of the dishes were very well prepared and presented. Service was attentive, wine remmendation was excellent. We could not have asked for more!

We were recommended this by our hotel. We wouldn't normally eat in sight of the major attraction; the Duomo. But it was a nice evening, we sat outside, the food, wine and service was all excellent. Not the cheapest, but that's because of the location.

Great restaurant. Excellent cuisine. Great service. Highly recommended. We had a 4 course menu and a bottle of very good wine (140Euro). Great 'ambiente', excellent dining outside on a warm evening in early October, watching people on the Piazza Duomo.

Do not bother - they won't. Having had many delicious meals at restaurants all over Sicily we were looking forward to a particularly special dinner at Regina Lucia. The location is magnificent and we were encouraged that we could not get a table when we first tried. Although the general service was excellent the head waiter was quite smarmy with... More
