This restaurant has great, fresh and nice food. We were group of 7 persons, and all of us were satisfied with food, service, and especially with prices. Here you can have great dinner, with wine, for 20€ per person. Just great!

The Italians take their food seriously and so if a place is busy and has a high proportion of Italians eating there you know two things - good food and good value. We booked for dinner based on the numbers we saw at lunchtime and were glad we did! The food was delightful and well presented and as we sat... More

We have eaten at Mariano's many times over the years, and that is the best recommendation I can offer. Local dishes well prepared, good and friendly service. And if you haven't noticed, you are not pestered by street musicians or flower sellers. Our favourite place in Ortigia.

Family of four with two little hungry kids, We've been there for recommendations of our Hotel the Gran Hotel Ortigia, what a disappointment, they said that they were booked out even all the tables outside where free and even inside there were just a couple of people. The waiters were very impolite and even rude saying that we must have... More

Had a lovely meal at a slow pace. Every dish was excellent and the service gracious and fast. Mostly Italians eating there, always a good sign.

Had a great dinner with extra attention from the owner . Their main pasta dishes were interesting-white pasta sauce with nutmeg and basil, a red sauce, and a green pasta with a pistachio sauce. The Italian flag!!!!Good local wine and the antipasto pre pasta was delicious.

Four of us went here for a birthday lunch and were not disappointed. The attraction was that the restaurant advertised dishes from Mare e Monte or sea and mountains. As I am a keen meat eater this looked good. I chose the Caponata for starter which was one of the finest first courses I have ever eaten. The rich and... More

We went to this restaurant on a reference from our guide. We had a full meal. Everything was wonderful the service, Decour, and food were all top-notch. The pasta that was perfectly cooked. The salads were fantastic. I highly recommend the sun-dried tomato pasta, the orange salad, OK, never mind, everything is good.

We were tempted to try this restaurant having read about it in the Lonely Planet guide, and it lived up to expectations! Dour waiters serving traditional fare with barely a word of English to be heard: great fun! Between us we had spaghetti with sardines, penne with artichokes and mushrooms, lamb chops and steak. Portions were generous and even at... More
