This is one of the best restaurants I ate at while in Sicily!!! The owners were fabulous! They played guitar and sang to us. They made it the most memorable birthday EVER for me! They took their time with us while ordering and tailored everything to our likes! They definitely would get my vote hands down for service, quality and... More

We went 3 times in a row in that very friendly place. The owner, the maid and the cook are used come and chat with the customers (many languages are spoken). The food is really good, fresh and the wines or local beer fantastic. The icing on the cake is that, in the evening, you can attend to local music... More

We found this restaurant near our hotel on our first night in Naxos. Not too busy but friendly and helpful staff. We had a chicken dish and carafe of wine which was very reasonable. Would recommend.

Great food - the Sicilian Pizza definitely needed the sharp knife we were given, but well worth the arm-aching work- delicious. Staff were nice and place pleasant, but below ground. Some tables outside but larger inside area.

Situated in Recanati (Giardini di Naxos). The owner is a delicious woman that let me feel at "home". Staff also is very polite. Was there 3 times and has been always crowded, so, if you want to eat outside, especially in the evening, I suggest you to book during day if not the day before. Food is typical Sicilian, Italian...

Genuine Sicilian restaurant with warm atmosphere and tasty food. Staff were very friendly and trusting - we had a late lunch one afternoon and though the staff were closing for a break before dinner service they told us to take our time and close the door on our way out!
