We were very disappointed with this restaurant. The staff appeared disinterested and/or unable to understand. We both ordered the sole filet and only one of us received it! Also it came with bones (I thought sole filet would be deboned??) so many better restaurants in Giardini Naxos! P.S. Watch out for all the mosquitos!!

We sat at a table outside at this seaside restaurant with a wonderful view. At dusk the mosquitos were awful, but the restaurant responded by spraying and giving us repellent to use. The pizzas were great--we had seafood, siciliana (eggplant, red onion, etc), and pistachio pizza. Also good house wine. The pasta wasn't the best we've had (I would stick... More

Food is not bad but honestly nothing special. Prices are as anywhere else around. Service a little bit chaotic. I had better pasta in Italian restaurant in Bratislava than here.

Latish dinner for us here, and being at the far end of the port at least we could park outside !!! Good food, reasonably priced, draught beer, friendly service, full of locals, and pleasant surroundings, nothing fancy, that'll do nicely thanks.

The food is not ok ande the service is superb. I had swordfish and it was a little to dry. The elder servant are more generous then the young ones and give you more attention.
