Try GarageBand. It's not necessarily the best you can get, but I've found it's pretty darn good. You've already got it too, so you can try it, find out if you like it, then move on if it doesn't sound good enough.

If you look up free garage band piano sounds in google, you should be able to locate some great sounding pianos to add to garage band.

Adding a sound isn't a trivial task, but it is possible with a little effort and a decent tutorial. After the first couple of times I had it down to about 5 minutes to add a new sound.

I have found some amazing piano samples out there. Some are free, some you have to pay for, so definitely experiment with adding the free ones, and then think about buying one you really like.
