We traveled to Siricusa with a large party (14) and booked a lunch at this lovely restaurant. It is off the beaten track and so we were surprised and pleased to see how many people were there when we arrived. It was obvious that this...More

My wife and I had a fabulous 5 course lunch at Don Camillo. The restaurant is built into a cave and has a wonderful wine list. The owner/chef is present and doing some of the cooking. All the food was fabulous and very well prepared....More

We went on a food-focused trip to Sicily, and this restaurant was quite a disappointment. The staff was very unfriendly and impatient, which is disturbing for a restaurant of this level/price. We asked about a few of the ingredients in the dishes and the staff...More

This was a highly recommended place by local associates as the best restaurant in Siracusa. While most dishes are nice, there are occasional hit and misses. The price goes hand in hand with its reputation. I personally was not sure what the fuzzes is about.

We were hesitant about reserving here based on some comments about the arrogant staff. We work in the CA wine industry so we’re ultimately won over by the wine list. We wish we had listened! The staff was totally dismissive and inattentive (and we aren’t...More

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.
