Found this place completely by accident. Have to say that it did not disappoint. Classic italian menu at reasonable prices just off the beaten track on a romantic side street. Try any of the pasta or Risotto dishes and you won't get let down. The...More

We came upon this charming restaurant by chance, walking through Ortiga on a Friday night. The staff were very helpful and the portions of pasta we had were very generous. Sitting outside in the alley was fun, but there is ample seating inside too. A...More

This is the real deal, loud, bright lights, good food and filled with locals. If you want to experience the non touristy side of Sicily, this is it.

We stopped at this casual restaurant with tables set up in an alley for lunch. We ate outside. The waiters were friendly and we enjoyed our pasta alla Norma.

The fare is typical local cuisine. Plain cooking with few flourishes. Prices are good by Ortigia standards. Service was attentive, without rushing the customers. Wines were reasonably priced. It was good to be somewhere that visitors did not monopolise.

After we finished the meal waiter brought Limoncelo shots without any request from us which we thought it's complimentary but we were charged in the end 2 EUR extra. Not very nice

Staff unfriendly, wine tasted of vinegar, tortellini was edible but only because I was starving. This is the first place in Sicily in 5 days that I couldn't rate 5 stars. What a disappointment. They had the cheek to charge 20% service charge plus 3...More
