Excellent Restaurant - Roberto and his staff can not do enough to make sure you enjoy your meal. We loved our taste of the Almond Liquer but it was really the staff who made our return visits always enjoyable. Thank you Roberto Ida & Geoff

We went there in a 6 people group. Ordered pizza and some salads. Food was excellent. Waiter tried to speak to us in our various native languages. I tried the same place twice more for take away pizza and it was great on all occasions. Waiter did care and recognised me on the spot. Very good service and excellent food.

The food in here is good honest fayre at reasonable prices. The drinks are also well priced. It is full every lunch and evening at times. A lot of the custom coming from the Hilton over the road, or the accomodation down the street. On a street with several similar eating establishments next door. When asked if something was wrong...

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.
