Today we bring you to Sicily!
During our recent stay in Syracuse, we went to Ortigia. Ortigia is a district of Syracuse which is located on a small island, connected to the mainland by two bridges.
The market is the beating heart of Ortigia, a place full of atmosphere, perfumes, and products to buy and taste.
We have chosen Carnezzeria, an osteria that, contrary to what you might think from the name, offers a rich menu of fish and local dishes to satisfy every palate.
The restaurant is entirely outdoors, therefore open only in good weather and good weather. It has colorful tables arranged right on the market street.
The menu is written in chalk on the walls of the building. The cuisine is based on traditional dishes, but with foresight and reinterpretations.
The menu is essential, there are cooked and raw seafood appetizers, but also typical first and second courses. The portions are generous and can be shared.
Here is what we’ve tried:
- a delightful plate of very fresh breaded anchovies, not greasy at all and with anchovies that inside remain almost raw, so to appreciate their freshness;
- a tasty fresh tuna caponata,
- and a very fragrant tarocco sicilian orange and marinated anchovy salad.
Interesting wine list, rightly focused on local proposals.
