First Review by cceino

out of this world food! - Edit

I was very pleasantly surprised to find this absolute gem of a vegan restaurant on my recent trip to Sicily. There were so many delicious sounding choices I struggled to decide! I went for the sushi to start and then the pesto pasta, both of which were lovely. My partner had the carbonara, which was delicious, followed by the cheesecake - yum! The staff were friendly and cheerful and the outside dining area was really pleasant. Well worth a visit

What a pleasantly delicious surprise - Edit

Stumbled upon this restaurant as I'm walking around the town looking for a place for dinner. I had a glass of the Susucaro (an organic wine from Mount Etna which had been recommended to me by a friend back in London 3 nights earlier) while I waited for a free table outside as I didn't have a booking.

At this point I haven't realized the restaurant is Vegan. Quite frankly I just saw on Google maps the rating was 4.8/5 so I figured it'd be good and they'd be able to have or make something vegan.

Finally I sit and the menu arrived and I couldn't believe my eyes. I had the vegetable rolls (sushi style), the Carbonara (which was the most delicious thing I've had in a while), and the chocolate mousse for desert (also to die for).

In conclusion, excellent food, excellent wine, excellent service. Must try!

Ps, they have delicious gluten-free substitutes.

Pros: Gluten-free substitutes

A gem like this should be kept a secret...... - Edit

On our first evening in Siracusa (Ortigia) (May 12, 2017) we had dinner here... and returned 4 times!
I hardly ever had more delicious, original, creative and tasty dinners in a restaurant. Really everything on the menu is outstanding, but so are the people. After the first evening we had the feeling we had had dinner at friend's! So we returned every evening till we left Ortigia. A.o. we had an impressive pasta carbonara, a spicy pasta with seaweed, a millefoglie which I could eat every day, a beautiful 5-course Moroccan dinner.... A true gem! Almost forgot to mention the life-music from Cindy and the charming and very professional owner Barbara (and all the others whose names I do not know): thank you and lots of success, because you are very special indeed!

My wife and me found this place wonderful.
This restaurant is splendid with a very nice atmosphere.
The food is excellent and the service is very good.
The price is a bit more expensive than elsewhere in the city but that is worth, the products used are qualities.
I recommend highly this place.

Pros: food , atmosphere, service

Cons: price

Ate here as often as we could - Edit

It was a real treat to find a vegan restaurant where my wife could have a large choice from the menu instead of the usual one or two items. We had a couple of lunches and dinner. As a meat eater I was also very happy with all that we ate. I had a seitan dish that was really tasty: I think that in the end my wife ate most of it! All the choices and salads were really inventive and fresh. The deserts must also be mentioned. I had a very good coconut 'cheesecake'. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The inside and outside seating areas are very relaxing, with the added bonus inside of occasional live music.

Pros: Good choice of vegan food, All very fresh, Live music

Luxurious vegan restaurant - Edit

Moon is a beautiful place that I would describe as a luxury vegan restaurant. Their cooking is mostly very ambitious and creative and the atmosphere is friendly and hip. Both nights we went there they had live performances - one with a great opera singer and the other night with 2 different artist singing some relaxed south-american tunes.

Their pasta carbonara is the best I have ever tasted! The entres were nice and the desserts AMAZING.

I also had a tofu-dish that was pretty nice.
BUT the pasta with the vegetable-sauce was however not nice at all. The prices are also quite high - so when they serve a plate that is infact quite bland and very boring you tend to get a bit disappointed.

I would go back for the delicious pasta carbonara and the amazing desserts. But I am not certain I would order anything else.

Pros: creative, luxurios, pasta carbonara and desserts

Cons: some not so nice dishes, expensive

Wonderful accidental discovery - Edit

My wife and I came across Moon completely by accident while strolling Ortigia today Wow! This really made our day. . The pasta carbonara was absolutely the best pasta dish I've ever tasted. Service was very friendly and inviting. The atmosphere is really interesting. The place is beautifully decorated. I want to stay here longer just to go back!

Great! - Edit

I was here for lunch, sitting on their terrace. They had an opera singer for lunch,, making the experience very special he was very good (although I'm not an expert).

I had spaghetti with pumpkin and pistachios, their specialty. It was really delicious. Highly recommended.

Pros: good location in Ortigia

if not a vegan going in, you will be one going out - Edit

We found this gem while perusing Happy Cow in Toronto.
We booked a reservation here for our trip to Ortegia. We ended up going back 2 more times. The restaurant, the food, the owners, and the staff are all superlative.

Recent converts to vegan eating, it was easy to find great food here. They are amazing how they can create sumptuous food and not the typical garbonza bean vegan fare.

The raw spaghetti with raw tomato sauce, the spaghetti carbonera, and the pesto pasta were really delicious. I do not know how they can make a chocolate mousse with whipped topping not being about to use eggs or cream but they did and it was also really good.

Their "taste of the sea" is really a pleasant surprising taste in several dishes.

The staff were very helpful in selecting the dishes and even more so with the wine.

The entertainment was also very good and different each night.

A fun location with locals and tourists in a very easy to find location minutes from the Duomo.

Barbara, thanks to you and your staff for the best meals that we had on our trip to Italy

Pros: food, staff, entertainment

Cons: they are not in Toronto

mal was anderes in italien - Edit

wir wollten es mal riskieren, ein italienisches lokal aufzusuchen, das sich traut, anders zu sein. moon = "move ortigia out of normality" fand ich hübsch. tofu mit reis war gelungen, aber der salat mit orangen und fenchel war unglaublich erfrischend :)!
