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.

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.

This is authentic Sicilian cuisine! From the appetizers to the pizza it was delicious!
It as so good had to back twice because we weren't able to sample enough dishes in 1 seating. The owners are lovely people and made us feel so welcome especially since we were the only tourists. We would highly recommend this restaurant since we found many of the other restaurants in Ortigia too touristy.

We have eaten here twice in the last week, and on both occasions were the only tourists in the place. Ortygia I has great seafood and pasta, but after a while we wanted some meat and salads, and this place delivered just what we wanted.
The menu is modern, the service excellent and atmosphere young and lively.
We had stuffed zucchini flowers for starter - delicious. Then the salad - a bed of baby spinach leaves with lots of interesting fresh stuff, topped with diced, grilled fillet steak - perfect. For desert we had cannoli, which was served with orange zest and a drizzle of marmalade - genius!
This restaurant is off the beaten track, but only about 5 minutes walk from Ortygia. It obviously attracts a consistent crowd of locals, which must mean that it maintains its high standard.
