This place was suggested by a reputable guide, but experience was all in all poor. The owner (or manager) seemed more stressed than anything else and when it pay the bill we had to go chase him, busy talking for a while. View on the...More

This place is old fashioned in a nice way, and the night we dined there most guests were local people. The service is low key but really friendly, the food excellent. We had seafood pasta which was delicious. The desserts were not quite as rewarding...More

Stopped here last week for just 2 beers (small) and 2 scoops of ice cream (one each) and to our astonishment we were charged 22 euros!!! Too stunned to query the price. Really cast a shadow on our day trip to Ortygia. Enough said.

I had the spigola (seabass) as secondi piatti. When the brought my plate it was more potatatoes then sea bass. When you pay 18 euro you expect something more. An ounce is a bit of a disapointment.
