Great Irish Pub Across the street from Hilton Giardini Naxos

This Irish pub had a great atmosphere and a big menu of food and drink. Classic Italian dishes were wonderful and the pizza was tasty too! :) They also had an amazing selection of spirits and drinks. Highly recommended and we ate there twice. Antonio the owner is as fun as all the reviews make him... read more

We had a pizza which was good and at a reasonable price and a salat which was not so good. The service was fast and friendly, the ambiance of the restaurant was a "pub-ambiance". All in all it was okay to go there once but I would not go there a second time.

We were unaware of any Irish connection! Antonio who clearly and rightfully proud of his restaurant is Siclian and is enthusiastically determined to treat all his patrons as special !( His English is excellent having spent time in London). We enjoyed three dinners and one lunch there. The menu was large covering the usual pizzas,pastas, steak and fish. The fillet... More

Our hotel was located in Giardini Naxos (Sicily) and right across the street is the O'Neil Bar & Restaurant. As soon as we walked we were warmly greeted by the owner, the "honorary Irishman" Antonio. The food was good, the service swift and sure, but the highlight was the ambiance created by the maestro, Antonio. What a great place, lots... More

We couldn't believe when the " starters" were placed on our table, followed by the bread and oil But when the owner starting chatting with us we were very surprised. Antonio was a delight. We enjoyed him as much as the food--- which was excellent. By the time we left there was not an empty table and the restaurants on... More

The food was good, atmosphere great but the owner/host Antonio is a real treasure. Not only did he constantly check on how we were doing, he made us feel like family members in his home. You would be doing yourself a diservice by not stopping in.

This was just down the street from our hotel. We thought it was a bit quaint for an Irish bar to be in Sicily. So we had Irish coffees, plus other drinks, as there were about 14 of us. We danced and had great fun.

Firstly, 6 of us were seated on the sidewalk(thought it might be better than waiting an hour for a seat) we were almost nose to nose with the taxi parked and waiting at the curb..but then we were on vacation and with friends so-o-o this could still be fun. We had heard that the food was great...but we had 3... More

The owner Antonio is a legend. If you're looking for a warm, and genuine, welcome in a traditional Scilian restaurant; then this is your spot. Whilst holidaying on a half-board basis, we spent more time dining in O'Neils than in our hotel. The menu is straightforward and very reasonably priced, the excellent pizza and pasta dishes don't exceed €10. Special... More

What a great place this is! Even greater is the owner! I have never seen anyone work with so much passion! We kept going back to the place and kept seeing the same people! Food was always very good and so was the service! Great place would definitely go back if in the area!
