Nice restaurant with delicious local food

Pleasant restaurant.. Lighting a little bright, and the owner has his office with his books etc in a corner under the stairs which I thought was a little strange, but the local Sicilian food was lovely. We had the house wines and they were great too.

This was one of those evenings that exceeded expectations. The husband and wife and staff were friendly and attentive with a very warm welcome. As it was our anniversary a glass of prosecco arrived unannounced and we then did the works of antipasti, and 2 courses each... Seafood risotto was superb, the prawn starter delicious, meat dishes excellent ... In... More

The food is excellent and the owner is a charming Sicilian padrino. The setting is really cosy and you feel immediately at home. You don't get treated like a tourist but like a member of his family. All the staff are wonderful. A great experience overall!

Very popular restaurant. Seemed to be lot of locals using which is good sign. Portions are very generous so we went for starters with sides! All was freshly cooked . Pretty location in small square. Would be nice outside dining in good weather. Reasonably priced. Lovely meal

La Piazzetta is definitely one of the best restaurants in the world that I know - and I know quite a few... Everything is just, in one word, perfect! The atmosphere, the people, the food... Heavenly! The freshest products on the planet are in their kitchen - and then the things they do to those freshest products, and put it... More

Cozze al gratin, pulpo, involtini, souffles.... Nero d'Avola We want to live here, to eat here, to come back here. A bit off the way, a very convivial ambiance, the chef and the main waitress are married. The owner is there watching over everything, lots of locals, you will want it too.

Beautiful food, excellent service, good atmosphere- La Piazetta has it all. Our starter of marinaded anchovies was wonderful, and the rest of the meal followed suit. Highly recommended! Not the easiest place to find, down a narrow "street" of steps off Corso Umberto, but well worth the effort!

With a delightful terrace away from the throng of tourists, this restaurant was a very happy discovery. My starter of fresh prawns is orange was delicious as were our risottos, my seafood risotto was excellent, as was my husband's with prawn and sweet lemon. Do try the White wine, Insolia from Principi di Butera. We chatted to one of the... More

The food here is more expensive than some other places in town that serve better food. The food itself was good but was let down by very poor service. We were kept waiting for ages to order and again for the meal and trying to pay was a joke.
