    Octopus par excellance! Rarely do you find such a delightful little gem of a restaurant. Lovely location, stunning menu offering with a wine list to match. Don’t pass it up and make sure you try the octopus. You’ll never taste better.

    Enjoyed very good meal in this nice small restaurant. Very nice atmosphere. Superbe location near the water. But the service could have been a bit more relaxed.

    Waiter stated they aim to give customers dishes you cannot cook at home. Had the special pasta of the day and my wife the carbonara di mare, both were excellent and portion sizes were fantastic. Definitely recommended to all!

    We returned here after exactly one year and found it only improved! They have expanded and renovated the interior with minimal but stylish decor. Of their new entrees, we tried the salty cheesecake with bufala mozzarella and the squid, both heavenly. The quality of their fish is superb, you can taste the freshness in every bite. All of their dishes are beautifully presented and offer a carefully selected juxtaposition of flavors. Our meal was exquisite, the service was friendly and impeccable and the bill was below average cost for the area! I truly can’t praise them enough...a must try if you are in Ortigia, you will not be disappointed!!!

    I had the best octopus I had on Sicily here. The service was decent if not particularly welcoming and the setting is okay. It was a lovely evening with a view over the water, but the dining spot is beside parking. Attentive to gluten free diner.

    This is a really wonderful place. Very tranquil, at some distance from the tourist mass elsewere in Siracusa. Great bay view. Friendly staff. Delicious food, extensive choice of dishes as well as (Italian) wine. Good value for money!

    We enjoyed delicious food, great service and a seaside view of Ortigia from our ‘al fresco’ table. Staff were friendly, and the seafood risotto and bacon-wrapped prawns with humus beautiful. Thank you all????

    The food is amazing and in combination with the friendly people it was a very special evening for us. We can highly recommend this restaurant to people who would like to taste the best of Sicilian cuisine in a very cosy restaurant.

    There was a little misunderstanding with our booking - but no problem at all for the very friendly hosts! This is a nice very friendly (also with kids) little family run restaurant with very good, delicious and fresh food - not extremely cheap - but very very good value for money. Make sure you have a booking for a table if you want to go there - it is very much worth it. We will try to go there again for sure!

    The staff were very friendly and helpful , giving good advice on choice and quantity of dishes to order . The food was delicious, freshly cooked and the right size of portions. The caponata which we shared as a starter was very tasty. We followed this with tuna steak and tuna pesto pasta, both dishes melted in our mouth. We made sure to leave room for a desert each, and had the cheese cake with strawberry sauce which is served in a glass jar and the special of the day which was Tiramisu again served in a glass jar. Both dishes were delicious and quite light. We washed this all down with house white . I would highly recommended visiting this restaurant.
