I really wanted to like this restaurant and give it five stars; really I did. And, it was pretty good, but the cumulative missteps prevented it. First, the good. The restaurant has a great location, on the main seafront strip in Giardini Naxos. The menu is what you'd expect to find, heavy on fish and seafood. The guests seemed to... More

Came here for dinner last night based on reviews. Got the lobster linguine and it didn't disappoint!! Quite liked mine. My mom and sister got the fillet of fish and I think it was slightly overcooked as it was kind of dry/chewy but it could've been the fish itself which was white but don't know what it was. It was...

They kind of present it as gourmet food but to us it was plain simple. Overpriced for sicily. Staff is really nice though.

This was certainly the best place around for us. We had raw fishes, soups, pastas and a grilled octopus. With one "word": wow. Everything was amazing. Its definitely not the cheapest place in Sicily but its worth to visit and try their specialties.

The food was generally too salty. I had pasta with bacon which was too salty. My two boys had lamb which was covered by salt. The vegetables had not too much taste. The pasta with truffles were good and the calamari as well. For the wine the owner provides good advice and recommended a good white wine from Agrigrente.

A local barman recommended this restaurant as somewhere good for seafood (my wife doesn't eat meat) whilst we were on holiday in Sicily. We are really pleased we took his advice....the food was as good as any we had all holiday and it was very reasonably priced. It is an informal seafood restaurant on the seafront in Giardini and serves... More

We had a pleasant dinner here. The kid enjoyed his minestrone and we had octopus for starters. Then, the meat was good and the risotto was perfect. The atmosphere of the place was also nice; and the service very good.

We spent a few hours exploring Giardini and decided to lunch here. When the locals started filling up the tables, we knew we made a great choice! The staff are very warm, friendly and prompt. The food was one of the best meals to date. The spaghetti with clam sauce was excellent, capturing the briny sweetness of clams. My spouse... More

We managed to get a table before the locals filled the restaurant. The mixed antipasti flight was excellent and the secondi piatti pesce was very good. We do not recommend the house white wine and the waiter could not tell which cheese we had. The service was very quick.
