Wow!

Huge and very good pizzas. One of the best we had in sicily. Big portions for desserts as well. Cakes and desserts homemade. We loved this Pizzeria. The waiters were very professional and friendly as well.

We tried the calzone as we'd seen the pics and thought it looked great, the vesivio was a bit too ricotta heavy and needed more of a kick, the margherita on the side was great. I had the capriosca (I think) with ham, mushroom, olive, egg and artichoke which had lots of flavour. Both pizzas were quite thick based so... More

My wife, two toddlers and me were searching for a pizza at siracusa and so this pizzeria and gave it a try. The pizza was ten points, and unbelievably fast (perhaps because we were amongst the first custumers). There is a wide range of pizzas (about 30) and divided into some 4 sections: traditional, closed pizzas, 'vulcans' original semi-closed pizza... More

Ordered peasano pizza. Very bland, thick crust. Later learned they had forgotten hot peppers. They laughed. I didn't think it very funny. Won't return.

We were directed here because we needed a gluten-free pizza, but we got much more. Not only many great pizza options, but a chance to choose eight components for your customized salad. Crossing the bridge out of Ortigia left the tourista experience behind (we were the only non-Italian speakers in the house), which made the dinner one of the best... More

Loved the idea of a half pizza/ half calzoni. I went for the Vulcano Vulcani. Unfortunately the pizza half was a poor cousin to the magharita that my wife ordered and the calzoni half was lacking in flavour. The base was thicker than I expected making the whole experience rather like Pizza Hut.

After a week in Sicily you will begin to crave for vegetables. This restaurant will deliver you a large wonderful fresh salad with a jolly good pizza too. Excellent service and choice of wine. Well worth a visit

Arrived late to Syracuse and this was the first restaurant we saw, so thought we'd give it a try. We were met with great service (the first and only place we didn't have to wait 10min+ for the bill in Sicily), huge selection of pizzas, big portions and for a reasonable price.

We had pizza here on a Sunday night. The restaurant was crowded mostly with families with small children. No matter how young, each child had their own pizza! There is a wide range of choices of pizza, calzone, and focaccia on the menu, with reasonable prices (slightly lower than places on Ortygia Island). Our pizzas were larger than expected and... More
