Looking for a great restaurant in Ragusa? Here we share our favourite eateries in this historic hilltop town.
Ragusa is a wonderful baroque town in the Val di Noto in the south-east of Sicily. Whether you're staying nearby and looking to spend a few evenings dining in Ragusa, or you're planning to visit from further afield, it's well worth setting aside a whole day to explore the town. Of course, once you have spent a few hours wandering along cobbled streets, through piazzas and in and out of baroque churches, many of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, you’ll be in need of refreshment.
Here are our favourite restaurants and eateries in Ragusa.
Corso XXV Aprile
Perfect for a leisurely lunch with friends or an intimate meal for two, you’ll find plenty of local dishes on the menu with many delicious seafood specialities, including mussels, clams, octopus and swordfish.
Via Capitano Bocchieri 31
With a well-deserved reputation as one of Sicily’s best restaurants, Ristorante Duomo offers a romantic atmosphere and an imaginative menu using fine local produce such as pistachios and Nero d’Avola wine. Reservation recommended.
Via Orfanotrofio 39
A contemporary café-come-bakers-come-delicatessen, I Banchi is perfect for a morning coffee with a freshly baked pastry, a lunchtime gourmet sandwich or a casual evening meal. It’s run by the chef at Duomo, so expect high standards at a more budget-friendly price. Closed on Thursdays.
Piazza Duomo 20
A wonderful gelateria in the main square of Ragusa, serving some unusual flavours such as marsala, pine nuts and prickly pears to name but a few. There's an attractive, shaded seating area opposite which is perfect for a spot of people-watching while enjoying a gelato or coffee.
Largo San Domenico 18
Specialising simply in arancini (deep fried balls of rice that come with a variety of fillings) and cannoli (crisp sweet tubes filled with ricotta cheese), this is the perfect place for a casual meal. You’ll be hard pushed to find anywhere selling better arancini or cannoli.
