While a wonderful aperitif with Prosecco and Bruschetta followed by a Mediterranean meal based on fish and seafood accompanied by Sicilian wine and at the end a typical Tiramisu is waiting for us. Let's catapult ourselves into the history of one of the Sicilian's longest-running fish and fruit marketplace, the Ortigia Market where I will tell you how the Sicilian have always lived. Among its stalls, we will rip out some interesting stories from the old traders always ready for a nice joke.
Finished our tour at the market, we continue for another 10 minutes our journey through the Temple of Apollo telling the unexpected story of this incredible city and some of its famous people all over the world, just the time of a few photos and here we are on nineteenth-century rooftop where we will enjoy our meal that I will prepare in front of you outdoors together with the wonderful panorama of Sicily.

I'm Luca and we host art & food experience along with Kate. I would like to share with you the experience collected over the last two decades, while in the restaurant business field. I host Ortigia Market, aperitif & wine on the green rooftop terrace with the view over the historical city center.
My passions lay in different aspects of the world exploration, among which tasting the vast variety of gastronomic flavors imaginable. I developed a love for the art of food, that couldn't be burned out of me, and it grew to be love for Art & Food.

I’m so happy we decided to stay an evening with Luca, his wife and son for my birthday celebration. They went completely above and beyond to provide for a wonderful and unforgettable evening for me and my family with exquisite seafood at their fantastic rooftop overlooking all of Ortigia.

Katrina and Micheal sind sehr freundliche junge Leute, die sich viel Mühe geben, ihren Gästen die Stadt Syrakus auf kulinarischem Weg nahezubringen, wohingegen der historische Teil etwas knapp ausfällt. Gleichwohl kann ich die Tour bei den beiden absolut weiterempfehlen.

I was really looking forward to the experience based on the reviews but unfortunately it turned out to be unsatisfying. To summarise, what you get is not an insightful immersion into local culture & tastes with a personal touch, but basically a shared starter platter at a local restaurant (with some wine + a dessert). As announced on airbnb, the central part of the experience should be a meal on the private rooftop terrace, but that didn't happen. Katrina and Mike explain it by the fact it's very hot at noon and they only do the meal on their terrace for evening experiences, and during the day they replace it with a restaurant. In this case it should be mentioned on airbnb that what you get is not an invitation to their home where they cook for you but a simple visit to a local restaurant owned by a friend of theirs (which requires 0 effort from them). The food at the restaurant is fine, but you don't need an expensive airbnb experience to order a platter at a restaurant (which wasn't unique either - it was a standard item on the restaurant menu). The food is preceded by a short market visit and stroll through a couple of streets but the commentary is very poor. At the market we stopped at 2 stalls where just a couple of local products were pointed out, and overall it felt like advertising rather than anything else ("This is a typical local thing, if you want to buy it to bring home, better do it here as in other shops the quality is lower"). While what we would expect based on the description or just basic preparation of such a tour a) a minimum of interesting context about the products, or at least a proper personal input from the sellers b) more diversity. we looked at and tasted less than a handful of products And you are not accompanied by any personal chef as announced in the description. Same for the stroll, what you get is a couple of random comments, far from an interesting "catapulting into the history of the city" as suggested in the description. As for the private terrace, we did go up for 10 minutes to take a couple of pictures. No drink was offered (as mentioned by some other reviewers), and it wasn't welcoming: after a few minutes Katrina and Mike started hinting it was time to leave, 30 minutes before the experience should have officially ended. Moreover, they were in general not very engaged and on their phone quite a lot. So if you're not looking for real interesting insight or knowledge, or personal touch from the hosts and / or their cooking; and simply want to hang out with somebody while eating at a restaurant, this experience can work for you. For us 90 euros for basically just a standard restaurant dish felt like way too much. I gave the feedback to Katrina so hopefully by the time you come across this experience, the description will be much more accurate.

After driving all over Sicily we were ready for a very mellow experience to welcome us to Syracuse. Katrina met us and took us on a brief stroll through the market and then we went to their friend‘s restaurant for a very nice food and wine tasting. The food was really lovely and Mike met us at the restaurant (Nostos) where the Chef gave us a private tasting just before their grand opening later in the evening. All in all a very personal welcome to this beautiful place.

Absolutely loved this experience! Highly recommend doing this early on in to trip to Siracusa. Myself and my partner Ellie had a fantastic time with Kate and Mike who are both very knowledgeable and passionate about what they do and it translates into a great tour. We ate a lot of food, had a great wine and finished with gelato and espresso. Their roof terrace is really nice and we left feeling very grateful, amazing value too. They also recommended several places for us to eat, drink, etc and some which we had tried but several we hadn’t. Lock it in!

A wonderful afternoon with Mike and Kat sampling the local cuisine, culture and hospitality. The food was delicious and plentiful from a local gastronomic institution with a private table after a short tour of the local market. Afterwards we were treated to drinks on their rooftop terrace and warm and friendly conversation with lots of helpful local information. A memorable afternoon!
