Good Breakfast

had breakfast there 2 days. Good food, pleasant atmosphere, and good, friendly wait staff. All the food was fresh and tasty. It's right across the street from the Hilton.

I ordered penne with cheese and they were not so tasty as they can be. Service is good but whole place is overpriced.

Located next to O'Neil Bar Restaurant, these two are the top two restaurants you will want to visit in Giardini Naxos. The food was excellent especially the pasta dishes. It is a little more upscale and reserved than O'Neils, but still a casual experience, very friendly people and a go to place when in the area.

Ate here on 3 separate occasions during our recent visit to Sicily. Found the staff to be extremely friendly and the service was excellent. The menu has an extensive selection and the food is excellent.

Small bar/ restaurant on the Main Street through Guardini Naxos. Staff are friendly, attentive and helpful. Food is fresh, tasty and inexpensive. It is always a good recommendation when the "locals" eat there too.

Due to fire at Roma airport, time in Giardini Naxos cut down to only 1 day but that 1 day was made extra special by everyone at Cafe Sekelia. We were there for breakfast and returned for dinner. Even before meeting any of the blood relatives, everyone at the restaurant made us feel like family. Roberto brought over a plate... More

I ordered the eascalop with mushrooms and it was terrible, the meat was very poor quality. My husband had a pizza which turned up 10 minutes after mine and then sent it back as it wasn't cooked properly. Staff were very friendly and did offer me an alternative.

On our arrival in Sicily we want for lunch and staff spent time explaining the food. We ate there several times and it was always freshly prepared and tasty. My husband loved the prawns and I enjoyed the Sicilian salads.
