I have eaten at many many top restaurants including michelin starred and have worked at a Michelin restaurant and Regina Lucia is by far the best I have ever had the pleasure to sample. We had the tasting menu and from the start it was a taste explosion from simplicity to complex. To make a simple ravioli with such depth... More

We had a great dinner in Regina Lucia. Service was very friendly and professional, complementary glass of bubbly on arrival gets you into atmosphere. We enjoyed high quality food and generous advise and descriptions on the way it is prepared. It always makes a difference to eat in place where people pride themselves in what they do. Inside part is... More

I really wanted to love this place but came away with mixed feelings. The pros: the atmosphere, the space and the service were all excellent and really the quality of the cooking was very good overall. The cons: some overly complex cooking for no real value addition, the lighting in the main dining room was a bit off (I had... More

One of the best meals in Italy, with attentive and knowledgable service. We shared a plate of local cheeses served with a reduction sauce (with honey, marmalade, balsamic, etc) followed by sea bass encrusted with pistachios and potatoes for my wife and large ravioli with Ragusa cheese, and a wonderful tomato sauce, paired with excellently local wines (especially the Vivera...

Brilliant location by the Cathedral in part of the Borgias' residence with outside tables when warm and an elegant dining room in an arched underground area that used to be the stables of the palace. This is a smart, upmarket destination and costs more than the standard fare in Siracusa, but we had a very good meal including wine for... More

We had some great dishes. Especially the raw fish starter was excellent. But one of the main courses was inedible. Overcooked fish that even smelled. When we mentioned it, the response was that it is supposed to be like that. I can't believe that.

This restaurant is on the square and at night the view is breath-taking. My description of the food will be totally inadequate, it was good. We had the five course seafood tasting and because I had seen octopus on the menu, I asked if the chef could include an octopus course and he obliged. The meal started with complimentary prosecco...

On a stormy night in October this was an elegant, warm and welcoming haven. The dining room is a lovely crypt like space of exposed stone arches, subtley lit. Tables are well spaced and candle lit. Accoustics good for conversation. We were early arrivals, the dining room soon filled to capacity. Service from start to finish was excellent - friendly,... More

The staff was very friendly, trying their best to speak to us in English, we found it very cute. The food was good and we enjoyed the complementary drinks and amuses. The view of the Duomo was lovely, being lit a night. The price is relatively high, but the location, staff and food are worth the price!

The Regina Lucia is a wonderful restaurant with very friendly service. We had the fish menue which was really excellent, tasty, very nicely presented and with a very nice selection of wines.
