We really liked sitting in the outside yard on a warm evening. The service was excellent and the food was better than a lot we had in Sicily. Not amazing but decent. I think it is a good choice for Ortigia.

We had been in Sicily for over a week and have had some great food. This dinner exceeded our high expectations based on their reviews. From beginning to end one dish after the other was amazing. Don't miss this place. We typically don't want to be locked into reservations for dinner, but well worth it.

We had our FAVORITE meal in Sicily here! It was the best. My palate is pretty spoiled and this place didn't let me down. We have spent over a week traveling through Sicily and trying a lot of the local specialties. We have had some amazing food. We decided to try this restaurant for a change of style. Every course...

It's an amazing blend of Sicilian and French cuisine: excellent starters, excellent fish and meat courses, excellent wine list. The place is super well decorated, with color contrasts among the different walls and a mix of contemporary, ancient and stylish elements. Both staff and owner are super kind and caring. We have been there twice and will be back very... More

Especially loved pannacota and tuna filet: these were delicious! They accept Visa cards, in case thats important for you. 2.The prices were relatively reasonable, but it seems for the food we got we... More

We visited this restaurant on our third visit to Ortigia and wished we'd eaten there before. The food is French with a local twist and we loved every course. The staff were all friendly and very polite and attentive. Couldn't fault the food - can recommend the tuna starter and lamb shank in particular. Can't wait to go back when... More

You can be spoiled for choice of dining options on Ortigia island, particularly when the weather is still nice enough to sit outside in late October. Le Vin was our stand-out choice of the week. Crispy Tuna was the favourite starter - three beautiful tender pieces of tuna in a deep fried crunchy casing - Beautiful. The Croque Monsieur was... More

Very nice food, great advice from the waiting staff and warm atmosphere. This is not 100% traditional Sicilian food (some dishes are very French) but the basic rules of simple cooking with the best ingredients are there. Highly recommended.

Thank Laimac
