“Great food!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the owner's mother who owns and runs the b & b just across the bridge in Ortygia where we stayed. We had a lovely time. We ate outside and we were lucky to get there early because it became very full later and they were turning people away. So one tip is to book a table - especially at the weekend. The staff were very friendly and accommodating; the owner found us a table even though he could not find our original booking.

The food was absolutely delicious. The lamb was succulent and the dessert first class. It was however, quite expensive in comparison to other restaurants in the area, so it is more of a place to go for a real treat. Wonderful!!

“Great Pizza, Great Value, Funky Atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

You MUST visit Piano B for a dining experience like no other. Great food, wine, beer, prosecco and friendly service. Handy location close to the main road into Ortygia. You won't be disappointed. We winged it without a booking, but this place is very popular with locals so it may pay to book in advance. Enjoy!

“Fantastic Pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We took a look around Ortygia last year trying to find pizza and struggled to not get caught up in the tourist traps on the island- then this year we were reading the reviews on TA looking for pizzerias and this one sounded great- well believe the reviews- its a top spot, the majority of diners are Italian, and the young staff running this new trendy spot are right on with their recommendations. Two types of pizza- traditional round thin base, and also by the metre (thicker base), with options on more than one topping choice. There are salumi options for starters, great artisanal beers, and nice bottles of wine too. We were impressed and will be back again before we leave it was fun. Its just off the main road onto the island- Via Malta turn off to reach Via Cairoli and park, or walk from the island a couple of blocks. Parking is tricky around the area so be resourceful.

“Best pizza we've EVER had!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

This is a must!! The ingredients are fabulously fresh. The environment is wonderful and smart looking. Lot of locals go here.
Easy walk from Ortigia. Just a couple of blocks across the bridge. Definitely worth going to. And the owner and staff are wonderfully friendly.
