Excellent small restaurant a little bit far from city center on the way up to the Etna. Excellent sea food at relatively high prices but price justified by good quality for value.

Took us a while to find the restaurant and the curb appeal was not that inviting. Once we sat down and the food starting coming we just ate and praised the food as it was excellent and very well prepared.

As others have mentioned, English is spoken well here and in fact the owner essentially went over the entire menu with us before ordering. The emphasis is clearly on using the freshest ingredients. For example,... More

We decided to come to Giardino di Bacco as it was a local to where we were staying. It was one of the best meals I've had in Sicily. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and helped us out understanding the menu. They brought out a English menu. The fish was very fresh and tasty and cooked to perfection.... More

10 minutes outside of Catania in a small town and unassuming location. The owner and staff were super friendly. Service was efficient and the food was served relatively quick for Italian standards. And wow was it tasty! The wine selection is huge with many great selections. The cost was very reasonable too. Simply a great dining experience - I will... More

You enter a beautiful garden in the heart of this small town, the tables are set simply yet beautifully. The owner greats and seats. The servers are professional and attentive, and dressed in suites, while noticing all your needs. Go for all three courses, starter, pasta and main. The pasta dish I had was the best seafood pasta I ever... More
