We enjoyed an excellent lunch on the terrace of 'a Levante'. The personal and very friendly serving was a pleasure as was the food. The dishes were served with small additional herbs and arrangements compared to what one would have expected.
We have just made a new reservation for this most enjoyable small restaurant in Ortigia.

We came here via TripAdvisor reviews that pointed out that it was good for kids. Not wanting to totally destroy anyone's lovely dinner in Siracusa with two kids self-narrating playing on electronic devices. The owners and staff were great, there is a small kid's menu, and they can sit outside on the water allowing their voices to dissipate amongst the old stone buildings and the sea. The food is a bit different - creamier and heartier, but the fish is fresh and everything was delicious.

Wonderful Italian food served beautifully and untraditionally, and with a view to the sea and the city of Siracusa. We loved it and will come back.

Friendly restaurant located on the quieter western seafront of Ortigia. The restaurant serves no-nonsense Sicilian seafood and specialties. Tasty food, without being overly sophisticated. Service was very welcoming and helpful.

We decided to check this place out after reading all the positive reviews. There are not many other restaurants over there so we were hoping it would work out. We were ignored for the first few minutes of arrival (like we were invisible) and then we we told in a very snooty way that we needed a reservation. They implied it was a fact that everyone knows for a Tuesday evening for such a famous restaurant. Too bad ... we would have made a reservation for another evening had they not been such jerks!

Dear Mr. Jay,
its a fact that if you wanna be sure to have a dinner in a Restaurant, all over the world, you need a reservation (everyday, above all if you are during the summer season!).
When you arrived, in a moment that the Restaurant was completely full, you decided to take two chairs (without asking nothing to anyone for it) and stay seated until a table was available. Only then we gently invited you to take a seat and you were served like others before and after you.
For the rest about us, please read better other reviews and give yourself an answer, such a jerk!!!
