Great pizza, very busy

We had dinner at Kaos in mid-July and the pizza was fantastic. Beautiful setting in old Ortigia. Very affordable with pizzas ranging from 4 to 8 Euros. Wait staff was a bit hurries so it took a couple of tries to get a second round of beers. Good spot if you are traveling with kids.

Average pizza. Disinterested waiting staff. Good location which is probably its USP. Did not return.

We wandered around Ortygia looking for the perfect lunch spot. A casual meal, street seating for good people watching and not too touristy. We were lucky to have found Kaos, which ticked all the boxes. Their pizzas were delicious - three of us ordered two and could not finish them. The place was full of local families enjoying a Sunday... More

What your friends would say if you invite them for a pizza close to a Greek temple or a majestic cathedral in Syracuse. I bet they would laugh at you. In fact Kaos pizzeria is located walking distance (literally) from the majestic Athena temple where now the cathedral of Syracuse is built. How your pizza would taste in your mouth... More

We dropped into this busy place in the center of town on impulse. We had tried other more highly rated Ortigia pizzerias but we liked Kaos best of all because the crust was perfect: crisp and thin but with a bit of chew and a little char. Kaos offers big selection of pizzas and also some other snack options and... More

wonderful accommodating staff- they fixed us an array of two flavored pizzas-one better than the next. Great location just adjacent to Duomo square, just off of Via Roma. The day after we went there when we were walking by, they invited us to have free espresso, on the house!
