When we decided this October to return to Sicily after 2 years, we absolutely were in agreement that we should stay at Ortigia Sea View at the fabulous Ida Bianca's place again. We really love it here and These are the reasons (not in order of importance, but they are important reasons!). 1. It is very, very clean. 2. The... More

We stayed at Ortigia Seaview B & B for 4 nights. It was wonderful! Ida was a lovely host, who served us extremely delicious breakfasts from a table with an incredible view of the sea. Just about everything was either homemade by Ida, or from the downstairs gourmet shop, including her jams, fruits, cakes, and the shop's incredible ricotta cheese... More

Ortigia Seaview is a great place to stay. Ida's B&B is clean, comfortable, peaceful, lovely to look at with scenic views, and delicious breakfasts in Ida's own apartment next door. I agree with all the other laudatory reviews: convenient, special, a hideaway close to everything. Book your room now!

My wife and I left Noto and headed for Syracuse. We had heard of an island attached to the city that was highly recommended. We had no reservations and were looking for a place to stay. We spoke to the owner of a restaurant near the market (fish, vegetables, fruit, pastry, spices, cheeses and many other wonderful prepared foods) He... More

Ida Bianchi - the hostess and incredible cook- made our visit wonderful! The rooms were comfortable and modern with a beautiful view but it was Ida's warmth, humor and tantalizing breakfasts that made this a most cherished experience. Homemade jams and pastries, lemony custards and gels, robust espresso or cappuccino, juices, fresh fruit- all beautifully presented and peppered with Ida's... More

We decided to stay at this place because of a recommendation from a friend. We really loved this place. First of all parking is so easy (which it generally isn't in Ortigia!) There are about 20 parking spaces right in front of the house. The view is spectacular. Our room had a great balcony with a lot of privacy and... More

I would not recommend you to stay at the Ortygia Sea view bed and breakfast for the folowing reasons: Location is not very good as it is not in a very safe area of Ortygia. Building is very scary and in poor condition: cut throat alley, I would call it Rooms are decent Bathrooms stink: gutter problem Towels are changed... More

My 6 night stay was overall delightful. The food was wonderful as Ida and the staff prided themselves in presenting a new breakfast treat every day. Ida's recommendations for local dining were all excellent. I did day excursions from this base and covered from Mt Etna to Temple Valley with no problem. I plan to visit again with my wife... More

At first I was concerned about our choice as we did not find it so easily, but when we did... what a score! Lovely room with a beautiful balcony overlooking the Sea. The very best part of the stay was the hostess, Ida Bianco. So helpful and friendly we felt very at home despite our lack of speaking italian. She... More
