This restaurant was just 30 metres away of my accommodation. Never tasted a pizza which was so good. This ended up by dining at this restaurant more than once. Recommended.

We came into this restaurant out of the rain, a downpour of biblical proportions. We expected nothing and were prepared to have a slow lunch whilst it rained. Not only did we thoroughly enjoy both the food and the surroundings we had a pleasant time with excellent and friendly service. You can't ask for much more than that. It was... More

Nice, small family place. We stopped for a late lunch and were warmly welcome. The appetizers were just brilliant and well, so were the main couses. The staff were extremely friendly, by any standards anywhere.

We were welcomed as a group of six and a table quickly rearranged for us. We only had one starter- Spag Carbonara which arrived slowly with the rest of the mains so I felt under pressure to eat this delicious plate rather quickly. I then had to wait for the veal to be brought on. As a fellow guest was... More

We had had a couple of poor experiences with the restaurants on the main strip, having made the mistake of going to places that looked busy. This restaurant was a stone's throw from our B&B and we had walked past it everyday without really noticing it. On our last night we arrived back late from the Isole Eolie and just... More

We ate here on a Saturday night during August, the food was very very tasty. We ate seafood, and pizza and it was all lovely. The location is great, and you have a sea view. It's a lovely restaurant, authentic and homely. Try it !!

Another of our sampling places for lunch over our five days in Giardini Naxos. Quite friendly and attentive service, we were one of four tables. My 6 year old had pasta alla norma (half portion). Very tasty, if not a little on salty side, but she enjoyed it which was great because I didn't tell her it had eggplant in... More

A very nice restaurant at the north end of the Giardini Naxos' bay with view over the sea and Taormina. We get a table, even if it was ful,l thanks to the owner, who was very kind and zealous, vice the service team, who wasn't at the same level. On the other side we were delighted with the menu, which... More
