You'll find this pizzeria on one of Ortygia's narrow, sloping Greek streets. While some of the appetizers, seafood and meat specialties are good, it's the pizza that shines here, made in a wood stove built of stone. €25.00 per person, for noon or evenings. (Closed Wednesdays.) Via Claudio Arezzo 7 in Ortygia.
This restaurant, with its arched ceilings of stone, was built around a medieval structure. As to the cuisine, we especially enjoyed the vegetable appetizers, including things like caponata (aubergine salad), but everything was delicious. The pasta with neonati or "mucco" (tiny baby herring) is exceptional. €35.00 per person, for noon or evenings. Via della Maestranza 96 in Ortygia.
Located in the Ortygia historical district, Kalliope offers a variety of dishes in a charming, traditional setting, though seafood reigns supreme. The pasta is home-made and the outdoor terrace is open in summer. €35.00 per person, lunch and dinner. Via del Consiglio Reginale 26.
