Jonico - 'A Rutta 'E Ciàuli ★★

Ristorante Jonico 'a Rutta 'e Ciàuli

A refined restaurant with terrace seating overlooking the sea in Siracusa

Gnocchi at Ristorante Jonico, Siracusa
Gnocchi.
This splurge is one of Sicily's best restaurants, certainly Siracusa's finest, and so staunchly traditional the menu's written entirely in dialect.

The setting is especially romantic: on a curving terrace lined with blown-glass lamps 50 feet above the soft surf lapping against the rocks with a sweeping vista of the Ionian sea and Ortigia.

For primo, try the traditional Siracusan spaghetti c'a muddica e anciovi (with grated bread and anchovies), or their specialty spaghetti co tunnu friscu (with fresh tuna, tomatoes, and capers).

The kitchen's best secondi are bistecca a siciliana (steak smothered with tuna, onion, and cheese) and orata 'c'aranciu (gilt-head bream cooked with orange juice, orange zest, and white wine). Meat eaters may prefer the custati ri agneddu panate (breaded mutton chops).

There's a less formal pizzeria up on the open-air roof.
