I had the Bruchetto with tomatoes and pasta with artichoke and pistachio sauce. The food was excellent and reasonably priced for Ortiga. I also had the house red wine which was a good house wine. I plan to eat there again.

We had 2 excellent meals at Kalliope and were very impressed at the delicious food. Being vegetarian it was good to see a large selection room of veggie dishes. I had the mushroom canaloni which was excellent, one of best Italian dishes Ive ever had. The Pasta Norma was very good too. This is a no pressure restaurant where you... More

I have been to the Kalliope more than three times in two weeks time. Each dish tastes incredibly tasty , they are not only authentic food but also prepared very well! The service is very friendly and attendful. Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Ortigia.

Food was nice but a little pricey for the portion sizes. Waiters were nice and recommended a very nice bottle of vino bianco. I would go there again.

Nice retreat, great location for any time of the day. Plenty of recipes to choose from, the local ones -which I opted for- being cooked excellently. The prices are at average level of the zone. The services were correct. All in one, I had a pleasant dinner and this place deserve a visit. Though, it's hard to differentiate this place... More

The food was fine, little pricey compared to the quality elsewhere,but not bad. The bread was old, the sardines from a can. Waiters had given any smile, but did their work fine for a half filled restaurant. Might turn down the volume of the radio so I can hear my friends.

First disappointing meal in Sciliy. The swordfish was overcooked and the scales were not removed from the grilled fish. Ordered the squid ink pasta as well and there was hardly any squid in the dish.. Also please note that the cooks are unfortunately not italian...

We were just wandering round this wonderful place and saw a sign for the Kalliope down a narrow street.. It was a very good choice. We had a light lunch and some excellent Sicilian wine, served by pleasant, friendly waiters. The price was much lower than that of a similar meal in Northern Italy as well. You do have to... More

4 of us dined one evening. Lovely location and good service by friendly staff. Food was good although not exceptional. Good middle of the road restaurant we would be happy to use again.

The location is excellent. From there you can say it goes awry. The 4 euro pelegrino is delivered promptly. You then see bodies simply walking around. Finally you get up and say maybe this isn't the place for us. The chap who presumably is the owner asks why you are leaving. Is it the service ? Well yes as would... More
