It's been now several times I eat here and always the food is excellent!! This time I wanted to offer my cousins a touch of Sicily and could not think of a better place for tasting real Sicilian food than Da Lisetta! The grilled mixed seafood - arrosto misto di pesce is my favorite, and the antipasti are the pleasure... More

We've been in Sicily about a week and this is hands down the best food we've had since we've arrived. From starters to pasta the food was perfectly prepared. The mixed starter was generous, varied and tasty. The calamari was delicious. The tagliatelle siciliano was perfectly cooked and delicious.

We shared three starters ( fried calamari, Rusticana plate, and Patate Fritte) three first course dishes (Sicilian Noodles, Spaghetti a la Carbonara, Risotto with Porcini Mushrooms). Two carafes of their house red and some cannoli for dessert (perfect size and not... More

We found this place on Trip Advisor because we wanted an outdoor restaurant near our hotel with outdoor seating. This is a very nice family-run restaurant that brings you an authentic slice of Sicilian culture. There were absolutely no tourists at this restaurant other than us. The food was fine but the service was stupendous. They really make you feel... More

We have been in Ortigia / Siracusa for a number of days now, and have eaten twice at this restaurant, the food is utterly sublime, my wife had seafood risotto and I had the Pasta Siciliano on one of the occasions, both meals were sublime and I have to say sardines and raisins would never have met in my kitchen...

Taken here by taxi driver on trip to Syracuse. Very happy with recomended seafood starter, like tapas, many plates of delicious fish and then for mains grilled fish, seafood and vongole pasta, lovely. Ate outside among handsome street architecture. Proper Sicilian food.

The restaurant was recommended to us by a local sightseeing attraction. So we were a little wary - however, there was no need for us to be concerned. We were met at the entrance by one of the owners who made us very welcome. The location of the restaurant is in Ortiga just from the bridge and a short walk... More

This restaurant, situated in a quiet street of the very center of Ortigia, near the sea, has a wonderful Sicilian home made Menu! Different types of pasta with seafood, but one should try the Antipasti, all on a fish/seafood base, very, very tasty!! We were welcomed with a smile and, after eating there the first time, actually it became our... More
