I would like to thank Roberto and the family for showing me and my small group what Sicilian hospitality is like. As one who is in the travel business, every once in a while there are a few bad apples in a group that complain about things from the minute they get off the plane to the minute they go... More

Went twice for meals with Alfred Zappala. The food is subpar, but that could be because Alfred ordered it and he is so darn cheap!! Do NOT ever go on tour with Alfred Zappala, you WILL regret it!

Food was fair at best. Definitely not top notch ingredients. Lack of flavor and salt. I ate aglio olio and it was absolutely tasteless. Definitely better choices on that strip.

I stayed in Giardini-Naxos for a week in September---at the Hilton---and Cafe Sikelia is directly across the street from the Hilton--in the Recanti District. I ate lunch at Sikelia on two occasions. During my first visit, I ordered spaghetti pomodoro e basilico, a caprese panini, and vino bianco della casa. The pasta was cooked perfectly---al dente, rich in tomato flavor,... More

Our first visit was purely out of convenience due to being opposite the Hilton where we had just checked in, we were to return twice more during our stay. Roberto was a wonderful host that was a pleasure to interact with, don't just go here for the food and service which are wonderful, but the hospitality and little extras are... More

Hello Roberto! Catinca, the little Romanian girl that you spoiled says hello ! We must come back because we didn't have the chance to say goodbye.

We had two quick meals here on our holiday – the place is in a good location if you are staying at the nearby hotels and it's nice and easy to step in to the covered terrace. The inside is nicely decorated in a modern style, and the staff is very friendly. Food wise I recommend sticking to the pasta... More
