“Take a Chance”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Recommended by a friend, La Tavernetta da Piero seemed like any other small restaurant--from the street. But, once we were seated, it was obvious that we had joined the local community in the heart of Syracusa. Reservations are a MUST here as we saw numerous people turned away. (We reserved on the internet and were quickly confirmed.) The pasta course were great but the fish entrees were delicious. The owner suggested a nice bottle of wine for us. Cannoli for dessert was wonderful--no sharing on this one! We'd definitely go back. It really isn't "chancy" at all.

“Amazing typical food in Ortigia! Highly recommended.”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

We knew we needed to make reservations, however, we took our chances and went unreserved. As expected it was 100% full but they offered for us to go back in an hour at 10:30pm. Good enough as Ortigia at night is awesome. The menu is great, very varied with options for everyone. Ingredients are mostly local and fresh. Dishes are regional and unpretentious. Prices are lower than average in Siracusa. All we order was unbelievably delicious. The atmosphere is just OK as it is noise since its always full. Service is efficient. I would return every time...
Highly recommended!

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

Good quality local food at very reasonable prices on a tourist trail street was unexpected.The sea urchin linguine ( just the meat,not the spines!) was a first for me ,and I'd have it again in a shot.Seafood spaghetti was wonderfully flavoured .A couple of veal fillets, one with mushroom sauce , we're beautifully done and very tender.A friendly place with a good atmosphere.Need to book ahead in season.

“The fish experience”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Fish and seafood of La Tavernetta can be warmly recommended. Of course those are good all around Sicily but we found this small (unfornately, pls book) taverna the best one we tried in different towns during our visit in Sicily. Both the Finns and the Italians in our group were very happy with the food, wines, service and also moderate price level. My personal favourite was the swordfish carpaccio. Cosy place in the heart of the Ortigia.

“Very good restaurant for family dinner”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

La Tavernetta da Piero was the best tratorria we had tried in Sicily during our vacation in June 2014th. Food was fresh and tasty. We tried risotto with clams, shrimps, octopus and Sicilian veal fillet both dishes was very tasty. Also we liked carpaccio of tuna and swordfish. Owners and waiters were very kindly. Thank you for great evening.
