To start we had the aubergine tart, which was in fact a sort of savoury macaroon of aubergine with pine nuts in a celery soup, and an almond soup with tiny shrimp toasted with squid ink. Both delicious. Then a grilled pork chop with pear...More

After the first, preplanned visit, we came a second time and it was equally good. The wine list is also varied and reasonably priced. We found nothing negative about this restaurant--and saw no need to try others in Siracusa.

This had the potential for a great evening. The food was very good. The menu was interesting - some creativity and lots of choices. The wine list was good. However, the waiters, hostess and wine steward were all stand-offish to the point of being rude....More

We had the fish menu. The dishes were quite good, but they were rather small. We were pretty worried we'd be walking out hungry, but luckily the dessert course was a bit larger than expected. The olive oil they give you for the bread is...More

We opted for the meat tasting menu- it was delicious! The flavor was good as none of the spices overwhelmed the natural flavor of the food. The real art, I felt, was the blend of textures. Tender and crunchy, firm but and silken- the chef...More
