Solid pizza joint, great wine list. This was actually a repeat place for us, over the course of a 5 day visit.

Found it after some trouble but we were glad we did. Quiet side street, some tourists and elderly local people at the tables. Very good pizza at reasonable prices.

Delicious cheap pizza in a nice setting. Tucked away from the Main Street. The only thing that lacked was the atmosphere as we were the only ones there on a Friday night in peak season.

I trusted other reviews on tripadvisor and went to Pizzeria Varo. This place is located on a little square (Varo square), just up the stairs from the main tourist street, hidden from all the noise. They have at least 10 tables outside on the little square. Service was very good and friendly. Quality/price ratio is in favor of Q. I... More

This restaurant was recommended by our landlord for its pizza and that was quite suitable for those in the family seeking a tasty alternative to pasta and standard Sicilian dishes. The salads and rustic antipasto were solid, and in ample portion. However, the quite expensive seafood pasta was a disappointment, for all the variety and volume of the seafood, tasting... More

I went to this place on the recommendation of a friend (who leads tours of Sicily) and was eager to try the pizza. Our waiter, however, recommended the lobster spaghetti, a special dish that they offer only occasionally. All five of us ordered that spaghetti, and we were all glad that we did. It was wonderful. Two days later I... More
