Super location overlooking the water- good also for people watching. We chose a wonderful mixes starter which tasted fantastic. The risottos were also good as was the swordfish. No housewine which was disappointing- 21 euros for ok bottle where most places offer liter of good housewine for 10 euros. Friendly helpful staff. Overall we enjoyed the meal and the location...

I ordered carbonara thinking it would be amazing as we were in sicily. I was so wrong, it tasted like korma. I'm not sure how the chef managed it but yuk. Avoid this place.

We had drinks here and decided to stay for dinner. Not only are the staff amazing but the pizza selection is great! We had a pizza for two and it is actually a calzone type pizza so get pizza for one and share it unless you're a big eater. It was delicious though! We loved every bite and our cocktails... More

Great location however the dining room was awful. Cold. Tired and a bit smelly from the water downstairs. Food was disappointing. Seafood over cooked. Main meal was served while we were still eating our starter. Some of our group were still wearing their coats as it really was unpleasantly cold. Disappointing.

We were here in Siracusa for a day trip and after having walked around and saw all the sights we decided to eat here due to it's prime sea side location near the Arethusa Fountain. True it is most definitely a tourist trap. But i feel this is one place where speaking Italian helps you out greatly. We got better... More

Nice view, but it's unbelievable, it's the most tasteLESS Pizza in the world, no matter which one you choose! Even with bresaola, a very tasty Italian ham it taste likes nothing!?!? Its Reallöhne unbelievable... pasta was ok, not more. Drinks are expensive. Choose another restaurant, If you wanna have something with any taste!

Food was ok just, bit over cooked, but sauce tasty. At least the broccoli was fresh, tables rammed together, bit cafetière style. Wine expensive. Just paying for the fact that you can see the sunset & it overlooks the water. No atmosphere, wouldnt go back

Horrid on all counts. Ambience. Food. Tired furniture. This place only makes any money as it over looks the water. It's horrible. Avoid at all costs.
