Wow what a fabulous restaurant. You must go there and you won't be disappointed with the Sicilian cuisine. Service that any restaurant in the world would be proud of. Based on the right hand side about 40m from the junction of Via Piave and Via Roma. Press the bell for entry via the double gates. Very select all-round!

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.

My wife and I had the pleasure of eating at Giardino di Bacco.I had heard about it from a friend. It is an amazing restaurant. 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, we ate the most amazing porcini mushrooms which had been obtained from the woods near Mt Etna. After dinner, she brought one out for us to see. The wine recommendation was perfect and again this was by far the best meal we had in Sicily on a 2 week trip.The preparation and presentation were wonderful. This is clearly a family restaurant and the personal attention and touch were very apparent.

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. From the outside you could easily miss the place as you have to buzz into the court yard. But this did make the place feel more exclusive. It was full of locals which is always a good sign. We took our wine home with us and the waiter found us a carrier which held two bottles of wine so he decided to give us a free bottle of wine so the carrier wasn't empty.

Excellent meal and atmosphere overall in a quaint Italian restaurant. A must visit if your in the area
