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.

The restaurant manager was amazing and with a great sense... More

During our trips to Gardini Naxos, we have been at many restaurants. A restaurant that always makes us come back is Il Covo. Without doubt it has the most relaxing atmosphere and absolutely delicious food. The waitress and waiters are wonderful and they take time for all customers. Definitely our favourite restaurant!

We were happy to find this restaurant the first time we came to Sicily in the summer 2006, and since then we have been back several times and we have never been disappointed.

IL Covo is a great restaurant and I would recommend it to anyone looking to have a great meal in a beautiful setting with friendly service. The Pizza is amazing as is the seafood which is a recent addition to the menu. The Swordfish Involtini is a must and exceptional while the Speck pizza I ordered was made to perfection.... More

Dear Mr/Miss Liberu i don't know where you have been eating (and if i have to tell you the truth i'm not sure you did it in our restaurant) but i find very offensive that you can wrtite those things about who reviewed us positively offending them, me and my staff that is everything but uninterested with our dear customers.
