Delicious quality food in a nice, friendly family-run restaurant

Antipasti monte - tasty appetizer selection of Italian delicatessen. Speciality of the house: delicious home-made pasta with cream, pancetta, red onions, basil and ground pistacchio.

We ate at Il Limone three times in a stay of one week, almost at the end of the Sicilian holiday season. Il Limone is on the seafront at the Taormina end of Giardini Naxos. It is small, with about 12 outside tables and is the embodiment of a local 'trattoria' , a bit like a very good English cafe... More

Went here with my mom while staying in Giardini Naxos for 3 nights. It was excellent. We both had a pasta first course with pesto, which was delicious. Then we both had the tuna with a pistachio crust for a second course, and again it was excellent. I though the house wine could have been a little better... after all,... More

I was staying between Gairdini Naxos and Taormina with a friend of mine and early on in our holiday we decided to walk into Giardini Naxos to find somewhere to eat. We prefer to 'dine local' whenever possible and came across the Limoni. A traditional family run establishment with most tables outside and a few in. It was a balmy... More

The place is nice and the furniture essential but cosy and welcoming. We were there with some family and both the food and the service were appalling. It's such a shame since the place could be really nice if the kitchen was run properly. The price is very low anyway, we weren't robbed, but a disappointment nevertheless. The 6 dishes... More

We had a grilled swordfish at this restaurant. It was Devine. You need to order side dishes, does not come with main entree. It was a thin slice of swordfish grilled to perfection. We were on our honeymoon sep 2011

My wife and I stumbled onto I Limoni Atwood days ago while on holiday in Giardini Naxos. Initially we had a glass of wine but the people were welcoming and charming and the menu was interesting. I had the stuffed anchovies, my wife had the pasta a la palermitana, both were outstanding. We also had a mixed salad with exceptional... More

Whilst we only had drinks here, it was not expensive. The staff were friendly and the place was very clean. We had drinks here late on after a meal and a walk, so was just a nice way to finish the evening with family. great stop.

We had an informal dinner there yesterday evening. The food was tasteless. W had salads as a starter. Nothing special, but that was ok, as we wanted it as simple as possible. The salad dressing is like at mc donalds, with olive and vinagre in small enelops... A shame for a land blessed with so much richness of food and... More
