The food & atmosphere were both great. Owner was awesome and made plates that were not on the menu if asked. This is definitely worth going to

I have been coming back to Giardini 4 years and this is the place I have my Pizza and Pasta. I cannot believe it is now rated 26...There must be some funny reviewing going on here! As someone who travels to Italy multiple times a year for eating and cooking you can guess I am somewhat picky about my Italian... More

It was a really nice dinner time in Il Covo. Beautiful interior, nice and polite staff, tasty oven baked pizza and all by very decent price. We were happy to find a free table as its pretty crowded and we had no regrets at all.Trully recommend to everyone who's close. Other people's meals looked yummy on the tables too :)

We ordered a 1/2 meter pizza with 2 toppings (bruschetta and mazzara - smoked tuna filets, capers, onions), as in this place... More

My wife and I just returned from vacation in Taormina and Giardini Naxos and loved the food and service at Il Covo. This is where the locals go for dinner. Giuseppe the owner is a friendly guy who makes you feel right at home. The pizza is much better than our pizza here in New York and the Blue Tuna... More

We have recently dined in this restaurant located in Giardini Naxos and myself and my wife can admit it is the best we have ever been.
