We had a great stay here and would love to go back. Paolo was very helpful with parking and everything else. Lovely clean, big room with a little balcony. Ragusa Ibla is gorgeous. Lunch at Il Duomo 100m down the street was outstanding. Breakfast on the roof also a highlight. Couldn't be bettered.

L'orto sul tetto couldn't have been a better choice for our first few nights in Sicily. The exterior may seem plain but inside the old building is full of the charm of an old Italian home. Paolo has decorated the place tastefully with many wonderful artefacts and old photos whilst our room was airy and unfussy -- a perfect combination... More

We stayed for 1 night at B&B L'Orto sul Tetto and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Our room was clean and the location was ideal for walking right into town. There is a beautiful roof top terrace that you can enjoy anytime (we regret not enjoying a glass of wine up there), which is also the setting for... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. The room is large with an extra single bed which is very convenient for leaving our luggage open. It is very quiet which was important for us. Paolo is very friendly and helpful (so is his father-in-law who helps with breakfast). The roof patio is great for breakfast and is available... More

We fell in love with Ragusa Ibla with its narrow streets, beautiful churches and squares and great restaurants and also the delicious ice creams at Gelati Divini in the square. L'Orto sul Tetto has only 3 rooms and we had booked 2 of them 10 months before our arrival but due to a missed email only 1 room had been... More

Highly recommend this place and would/will come back. It is just around the corner from Domo and accommodation and service are really special. You can drive all the way to the house and if you are lucky you can find parking there too..

I've been at this B&B during Easter for 2 nights with my GF. I looked for what they call "the suite" and I ended up spending one in the "normal" and the second in the suite. They are both great rooms, plenty of space with the added benefit of a Jacuzzi in the bathroom of the suite. Minibar use is... More

We stayed one night in this family run B&B in early April. Paolo has limited English skills but was very helpful, especially with finding a place to park on the narrow streets of Ragusa Ibla. Our room on the first floor was spacious with a balcony overlooking the street and modern bathroom facilities. This is a very old house with... More

We stayed two nights and just loved our stay here. Paulo has great taste and style with how he has decorated the house. The room was lovely - we had a balcony, a large bathroom and was spotless. At breakfast we met Guiseppe (Paulo's father in law) who was also very welcoming. Breakfast was delicious with a huge range of... More
