Out in the gardens for good pizza and beer. I will go back for sure some time.

Sitting here waiting for two pizzas to take-away. We have been waiting for 1 hour with a six month old baby, having just been informed that we have 10-15 minutes left to wait I've decided to write a review of the place now. I haven't eaten the pizza but I can promise you that it is not worth the wait. 155kr for the 'house' pizza and 185kr for the 'guest' is already wildly overpriced. Unfortunately I'm limited with a 1 star as the lowest I can mark this place. Do not come here. Support somewhere else.

Stone over baked pizza, tastes well, but not a lot of options. We had their regular pizza and a "guest pizza" with potatoes and sour cream to choose from. Both were good, though a bit pricy at 155sek each. The oven can only do 3 pizzas at once, so if you have a larger party or if there are a lot of people, you will have to wait for a good 30+ minutes to get the first 3, which will be cold if you wait for the others to arrive before eating. You can also see a bit of art in the form of sculptures and paintings in and around the stable where the pizzas are served. Not somewhere I go often, but worth a stop if you are hungry and nearby during summer.

Late Baroque Town of Ragusa

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily, including Ragusa, were all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the earthquake which took place in that year. They represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building. Together with seven other cities in the Val di Noto, it is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In 1693 Ragusa was devastated by a huge earthquake, which killed some 5,000 inhabitants. Following this catastrophe the city was largely rebuilt, and many Baroque buildings from this time remain in the city. Most of the population moved to a new settlement in the former district of Patro, calling this new municipality 'Ragusa Superiore' (Upper Ragusa) and the ancient city 'Ragusa Inferiore' (Lower Ragusa). The two cities remained separated until 1926, when they were fused together to become a provincial capital in 1927.
