We had a fantastic late lunch here. Bruschetta brought to table with drinks. Owner Enrico sent out the best freshest caponata we have ever had. We are retired Italian Americans & have had lots in our lifetime!! Gnocchi were super light with a delicious seafood sauce, fritto misto light & fresh. Veal with mushrooms also excellent. Service was warm &... More

We were staying right next door to this restaurant, but arrived on a Monday when it is closed. We soon got into the habit of popping in for a grappa as a nightcap, and also went for lunch and dinner. We are not big pasta eaters,so for us the menu was a little limited, but what they did serve was... More

After a hot walk in the sun we decided to visit this place. The couple with us were frequent visitors to this restaurant. The food and hospitality was great. We will surely return. The owner turned the place cooler to make us more comfortable. We had all a wonderful dish of fettuccini with tasty seafood. Great experience!

We spent two weeks on Sicily, eating really good food, but this restaurant was the best one we found. The staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. We'd eaten mostly in restaurants on Via Cavour, which were mostly very good, but this night it was raining heavily so we decided to eat at the closest restaurant to where... More

We went as a group of 5 adults and 4 kids. The waiters seemed immediately reluctant to offer us a table. They eventually asked the owner who told them to arrange us a table in a secondary room. The first surprise was that we couldn't order french fries for the kids or roast potatoes as sides to our mains. Hence... More

We came here three years ago on recommendation from our hotel, and had to revisit on our return to Siracusa! Pasta alla Siciliana on our 1st visit was amazing, and the fettuccini with veal ragu this time was delicious! Cosy, family atmosphere, simple amazing food, great wine and excellent service! Couldn't recommend highly enough!

We loved everything about this family-run restaurant: excellent food at reasonable prices, good local wine, and warm welcome. I hope to go back someday!

The Antica Locanda was recommended by our hotel as a place that Sicilians ate and the first night we tried to get in it was full so we booked for the next night they were open. The food was delicious and well presented both by the chef and by the owner and his staff who served us. I left my... More

Large Italian restaurant with multiple rooms, managed expertly by the owner. Insalate of pulpo was fresh and well cooked. I was disappointed with the couscous of seafood because it had too many shells and few prawns, but the sugo was tasty. The cannoli dessert was delicious.
