A gracious series of delicately-arched rooms, lined with wine bottles and sepia-tone images of Old Siracusa, overflows with locals in the know. Preparations bring together fresh seafood and inspired creativity: taste, for instance, the sublime spaghetti delle Sirene (with sea urchin and shrimp in butter) or gamberoni prepared, unexpectedly (and wonderfully), in pork fat. The wine list is, in a word, extraordinary.

We had only one day in Siracusa, so we decided to have a variety or regional food by ordering the tasting menu for lunch. There were unusual, delicious dishes representative of the area. Service was excellent. The wine list was staggering in size - we asked for a recommendation for the menu, and ended up with a wonderful Silician wine which was very inexpensive. Highly recommended.
