We started with the seafood antipasti, which consisted of 9 tasty nibbles. I followed with spaghetti alle vongele, which was perfectly balanced with parsley , garlic, olive oil and wine. My wife had an excellent prawn dish. We arrived early and got a table. By the time we left, it was full of locals, who like their food! The menu... More

This is a friendly, typical Italian restaurant. The waiter spoke English and was happy to weigh the fish we chose from the display and tell me the price before I ordered. It was a delicious whole fish, enough for me - 13 euros. The pasta dishes we had were also excellent: pasta with aubergines and fish ravioli with shrimp. Good... More

We had a great dinner at this restaurant, great seafood, great pasta, amazing and affordable Sicilinan wines. People working there are super friendly (even limited knowledge of English is not a problem). Definetely worth trying this restaurant while you are in Siracuza!

I spent part of my 2016 holidays in Sicily. After have been disappointed by few restaurants, I headed to "Locanda Colibri". I have been impressed by "antipasto di mare" : some sample are just the perfection! The seafood spaghetti was well balanced in everything. The fresh tuna was a bit over cooked but still nice. The service was very slow... More

We went to this small restaurant thanks to enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor.. and I must tell you guys: THANK GOD we came here! You are welcomed by the maitre (Paolo) and his kind girlfriend. The atmosphere is familiar, relaxed, authentic. Paolo is well aware of all local wines, and he already got our devotion for the Shiraz he suggested us.... More

We were looking for a place to go noon Ortegia, and saw this listed on TA. Pretty good wine list, friendly service, and some very good food. Great mussels and local small shrimp. We shared the frutti di mare appetizer plate, but would recommend just getting the tuna with peppers or the local small shrimp with lemon/oil/basil. The seafood risotto... More

The Hotel recommended this to us. Tucked away and wouldn't find if you didn't know about it. A good menu and excellent service. Lovely vino too. Food was amazing. The only disappointment was no cappuccino only expreso.
