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.

Everything about Cafe Sikelia is delightful.The food,the ambience,the wonderful family who run it, particularly Roberto and Grazia who make you so welcome that you feel you are spending the evening with family.They make children so welcome too, calling our son by the Italian version of his name- Carluccio which we are still calling him! It is fun to be there,... More

I was at Sikelia in May of 2013--I returned to Giardini Naxos on October 8, 2014. I enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of the family of Sikelia, as well as the food. Roberto and the rest go out of their way to please their customers and personally greet each and every one. This visit, I had 3 dinners and 1 lunch... More

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
