Very tasty and fresh food, specially the fish (directly from the sea). The staff was really kind, always checking everything was going well. The place is HUGE with a nice terrace. Also great value for money (price/quality)! Thanks for this nice experience!

What a lovely restaurant, very welcoming for lunch, a little bit off the beaten track but worth the hike up the hill from the sea.
Lovely house wine, really cheap.

If you're staying in Giardini Naxos, this is the place where you will want to come back two or three times more before you leave.

The dishes are based on familiar local classics - swordfish, squid, prawns, steaks, pasta, pizza - but are a bit more imaginative, more elaborate and certainly tastier than the average restaurants on the sea front. Swordfish linguine with pistachio was excellent. The ingredients in general seem to be a better quality and fresher too (the menu changes according to what's been caught). That's our experience anyway. The other restaurants we tried weren't bad - just all very similar.

Aside from the food
- excellent, friendly service
- large outdoor seating area on an upstairs terrace with views of Etna (for a few tables). Just a little noise from the main road below.
- a mix of locals and tourists (clearly this place is known both in Giardini and on trip advisor)
- still reasonable prices, although more than the average here. Easily worth it for the better quality (our bill was 67 euros for 1 pasta dish, 1 pizza, 1 mixed fish grill, 2 desserts, 2 half litres of local wine + water & a beer)
- nice decoration with a maritime theme. Like every aspect of the restaurant, they have just put in a bit of extra effort and you notice the difference.

Will recommend to friends.

Minus points:
- difficult name to remember and pronounce for people with limited Italian
- ummm.... we're going home tomorrow?
