Location is perfect next to the duomo and at the same time not in the middle of the evening crowd. Service is friendly and the pizza is good yet not exceptional. Draft beer great. A good place for a fun evening. CIAO

We have been here for a dinner with friends and family. The location is very nice just nearby the Siracusa Cathedral and as well with a nice stream considering the warm weather. The service was friendly and efficient and the pizzas were ok (average) neither special nor bad.

We have recently stayed in the Hotel Roma, opposite this restaurant. It was generally packed and having had lunch there we understood why. Delicious pizzas, delightful staff and so fun to sit in Piazza Minerva and watch the world go by. Highly recommended.

This was recommed to us but we dissapointed. I had my first burned pizza ever in Italy. My wifes pizza was ok, but the service was very lazy. The waiters were chatting and they ignored the customers. Will not go back.

All we wanted to eat last night was a simple, delicious pizza. There are so many pizzerias in Ortigia, it was hard to know where to go. We looked at all the reviews and decided on Kaos. We were not disappointed. The location is beautiful, in a wide side street beside the Duomo. The choice of pizzas is very good,... More

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

Restaurant in the heart of the historical center of ortigia beside the Cathedral built on the pagan temple dedicated to Athena.
The restaurant offers its customers the chance to enjoy its products in front of the magnificent scenery of the Cathedral of Syracuse without noise of vehicles or scooter thanks to the pedestrian that allows children to be able to run around safely while parents are sitting comfortably at table.
