Nice house wine. Delicious pizza. Really enjoyed it. Good al fresco atmosphere with music videos. Reasonable price. Still buzzing at midnight.

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 :)

Based on the good reviews we chose this place for dinner. We were greeted by the owner, the place was almost full when we arrived at around 21, so we were lucky to find a table for 2. 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. The location, the food quality, the atmosphere is the quintessence of excellence and we will for sure return on our next holiday in Sicily. The restaurant manager was amazing and with a great sense... More

Unashamedly, we visited Il Covo 3 times in our 2 week holiday in Giardini Naxos. We both were treated to fantastic starters on our first visit: tomato, mozzarella and parma ham and seafood cocktail. Upon talking to an assistant in a tour office, we were recommended to try Il Covo's pizzas and boy were we happy we did. We chose... 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. The pizza is outstanding, and there are so many tastes to choose between, I like a lot the one with pistasch and mozzarella! But we have even... More

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
