The real family run little restaurant. Very central in Ortiggia, great food and friendly service. Everything is home made, great selection of starters from the counter, every single dish is delicious and there is a huge selection. Wine is also great, and reasonabily priced. Don't miss! my favourite, we went twice in a week.

We went here twice for dinner as we really enjoyed the starters and the service at this restaurant. The mains are good too, but we just had simple pasta dishes. The ambiance is nice if you sit outside. We enjoyed the bruscheta and tomato and cheese starters - delicious, fresh ingredients would a good serve of olive oil. The waiter... More

We chose to eat here a second night because we enjoyed it so much the first time. We felt honoured to be given a table because even though there seemed to be tables available, many hopefuls were turned away, some even saying they had made a reservation! The staff were a bit off hand but the food was excellent and... More

Based on our hotel's suggestion we went to da Piero for dinner. The restaurant is not big and was very busy. In fact we were lucky to get a table and saw a number of people waiting afterwards. Considering how busy the staff were, the service was prompt and food arrived quickly. All the food tasted good particularly the orange... More

Make sure you book as there were plenty of people turning up last minute, only to be turned away. We were a family of 4, the food was very good, we strayed away from the normal pasta and had a variety of meat dishes, all of which were very good. The service was very good, wine very good - all...

A place where you must visited if you would like to go out for dinner ! It's a small place so try to go early ! Also it's really nice to walk around the place.

We wanted a "home cooked" meal our first night in Sicily. La Tavernetta da Piero was perfect. The service was warm and friendly, even for us non-Italian speaking folks. The service staff did their best with our menu selections. The food was just what we expected; home style "scratch cooking" preparations and presentations using fresh ingredients. We discovered throughout our... More
