As some have mentioned, this is a very large restaurant with too bright lighting. We initially tried to go to the restaurant to the left, which seemed to us to be the mains restaurant versus the pizza restaurant to the right, both named Archimedes. Once we had been shepherded into the too brightly lit, empty room -- granted we were... More

Down a narrow alley off the main restaurant drag is Archimede. Its a spacious facility capable of handling big parties. FOOD: Pizza seems to be the strength as it was on a lot of tables. We ordered fresh octopus carpaccio, seafood grill and pasta as were pizza'd out by the end of our trip. The flavors were subtle, food hot,... More

We had Antipasti taken from the buffet - those were very good. Then we had a plate of grilled fish and mixed salad - both were the worst dishes we had during 4 weeks in sicily. Moreover we think the increadiens had poor quality abd the price was to high. Definitely not recommended for fish. Maybe the pizza is ok.

We have loved the food and the friendly and helpful people that make this island such a pleasure to visit. All the more upsetting then to have just experienced the rudest service that I have ever come across just about anywhere in the World. The head waiter told us that they did not have house wine, refused to recommend anything... More

Never come to this place! We came here on 2nd September 2016 with the family. The service was awful and the food worse. My daughter had to vomit as the taste of the food was terrible. Waiters were terrible! We cannot understand why people rate it highly!

We visited Archimede at a recommendation but were disappointed by the atmosphere and food. We were around 10 PM and choose to sit inside (air conditioned). The place is too brightly lit and the staff not attentive or even polite - opposite of what we experienced the week before while traveling in Sicily. We got the impression that they served... More

The place is quite hard to find - yo have to turn from via Cavour to small street. Place is not perfect, but we had one of the best pizzas in Syracuse. They have traditional pizzaz and their own creations - all named after greek mythological figures. I tried pizza Oedipus, it was just perfect - vegetarian with radicchio, arugula,... More

We arrived quite late and ate inside, which was better and with air conditioning. The service was quick. We had pizza, salads and the mixed meat. The pizza was simply sensational, incredibly tasty and with just all sorts of fresh ingredients cooked in a stone oven. The three sorts of meats (beef, Italian sausage and veal scalop) were just fine... More

Wild cats all over and Yard smells like cats drank too much water. Avoid at all costs, and you won't need a shot from your doctor when you get back home. #horrible
