“Meat-eaters delight”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

If one of you is not so keen on seafood then you will struggle in most restaurants in Ortigia / Syracusa it seems, but not at Piano B! Recommended by Fiora who owns the excellent B&B where we stayed 4 nights as I think her son owns this Bistro. Large menu and even bigger portions, we enjoyed the packed, buzzy atmosphere, and the food and wine, but don't go if you are not happy with football on a large screen in the background.

“Great find!”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

People are right to say book - we were very lucky to get the last unreserved table. The place is full of locals and the odd tourist. Their pizzas seem the main draw, the owners are from Rome so they offer thin crispy bases, or thicker pizza by the metre for groups. The guy on the door speaks fantastic English and was very helpful in deciphering the Italian menu. We are both veggie and there are some great dedicated veggie choices and also 2 vegan pizzas as well which are clearly marked on the menu. The waiter also suggested some great artichoke antipasti and he kindly exchanged, without promoting, the meaty nibbles they bring to every table for a veggie option. Pizzas were fabulous and delicious tiramasu as light as a feather. Highly recommend for quality of food, service and atmosphere, plus well priced.

“wish our USA pizza tasted like this!”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

We were privileged to take an awesome cooking lesson from the owner's mother, who told us about Piano B. We went one evening for pizza (opens at 7:30) and thoroughly enjoyed a meter-long pizza divided into 4 sections for toppings. The wait staff was helpful in choosing the toppings to give us a good variety, as well as some tasty appetisers. Our party of 4 took plenty home for the next day's lunch. Sat upstairs, which was enjoyable (the weather precluded sitting outdoors, which looked great as well).

“Great pizza place!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

This place was recommended to us by our hotel's receptionist, and i have to say i'm very glad we took her advice.

We had two pizzas accompanied by a good bottle of white wine.
The pizzas were delicious and their choice is very good.

although i can't comment their other offerings seemed just as good as well.

“Super Pizza, Super Menu, Super Service, Super Atmosphere”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

What a great find, thanks to Fiora who directed us to her son's resto. We had the best time and some of the best food in Sicily. The pizza was to die for. We ordered an individual pizza with thin crust which was terrific along with a number of other appetizer selections, were were all terrific. The recommended wine was also delicious. There is seating outside, weather permitting and two levels of seating in this place. It is important to reserve before showing up. We saw many parties turned away because they didn't reserve.
