Risotto were like a soup and the pizza wasn't finished. A group of musicians entered after a while and made it even worse.

Reading the previous reviews, it seems that this is the preferred caterer for the Hilton guests across the street. It was our case too! Roberto, the owner is paying a lot of attention to his customers, and the food is great! I recommend the Etna pasta and the Zu Saru spaghetti. Just go there and you'll eat something nice. By... More

We read the reviews on here and since we were staying in the Hilton, it is right opposite and beats the hotel for atmosphere. The food was good, but it is the ambience of the place that is it's true appeal. The staff are beyond friendly and make you feel like a house guest rather than just a customer. We... More

Cafe' Sikelia is just across the Hilton Hotel where we stayed. I loved the grilled shrimps with heads!! So flavorful and yummy. The proprietor offered a free sample of delicious almond wine. That is the kind of hospitality and generosity of that place.

This little cafe is awesome!! The staff (Roberto and his sisters) were so friendly and personable!!! It is a family run cafe. Although the menu is limited, they will cater to what you want. I highly recommend it! It is filled with ambiance!!

A typical toristic Restaurant. The food is fresh and tasty, the personal is friendly. But not for those who want to feel the real Sicilian atmosphere. The visitors are only tourists and the service is also so. It may be just because Giordini Naxos itself is a touristic place. But I must say the owner serves you by himself and... More

On our first night in Sicily we were delighted to find Cafe Sikelia, across from the Hilton. The owner, Roberto, and his sister, run the place and are so welcoming and charming, it was truly one of our more memorable meals while in Sicily. Roberto is very knowledgeable about the area and will happily share his advice on wineries to... More

Café Sikelia is one of several restaurants near the Hilton in Giardini Naxos. The proprietor is hospitable and is eager to share his knowledge of wine and food in a way that comes across as genuine and appropriate. The food is delicious and the prices are fair. The pizza was good though a step down from the nearby Gambinus which... More

After touring Italy for nearly three weeks, our last stop was Sicily. We stayed in Giardini Naxos and came across this wonderful little gold mine. The food was exceptional, finally a decent meal, simple, yet the best in the whole of Italy. The staff were friendly, nothing was too much trouble. My daughter was tired of pasta and pizza so...
