Good location, very average pizza, but do not have the fried appetisers under any circumstances. How hard is it to find a decent red and white wine for your restaurant in Italy? Come on guys, add a little finesse. Service amenable. Would not go back, but not a disaster.

We really enjoyed our pizza at Kaos. We got a recommendation from a hotel receptionist and we're glad we had asked. Two of us had the 4 Stagioni, one the Romana (veggie) and one the Ares which had potatoes, salami etc. All were very good, with lovely charred crusts. A half liter of red wine came in a cute ceramic... More

Very central place in Ortigia with very good atmosphere. The pizza was well presented and tasty good but the dough was a bit heavy to digest.

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.

Thank Ari H

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.
