We ate at this restaurant on two occasions and were pleased on both. The gnochi (Italian potato dumplings) were the lightest I had ever eaten. The outdoor seating is right on the beach with Magnificent views of Taormina at night. The menu is extensive and can be as simple as a pizza or as... read more

This is a pleasant restaurant next to one of the nicer Lidos in Giardini Naxos. It has a nice covered patio so that you can eat outside without baking in the sun. There's a wide range of antipasti, primi and secondi. Fish is fresh and tasty. Risotto, pasta dishes and saltimbocca were all excellent. Sadly we had no room for... More

The restaurant was recommended by the owner of the apartment we rented and it didn't disappoint. Everything was fresh, from the antipasti to the pizza. There we went with the server's recommendation, pizza with shrimp, zucchini flowers, and ground pistachios. Delicious! Prices for a three-course meal are quite reasonable, and so is the wine, with a good selection of wines... More

Was recommended by our b&b host. We were disappointed, the food was average/normal. Big terrace with plastic chairs, not quite 'romantic'. Wouldn't recommend it.

We tried quite some, but this is by far the best "lido" on the naxos beach strip. The seafood soup is the best I head in Italy. The risotto Marinera is to die for. (they offered to share the secret recepi via e-mail!) The woodoven pizza's a perfect. The "Tony Suprano" lookalike owner is very friendly. Tony the savatoggio on... More

Qualità nella media ma prezzi alti, si paga la location. Prezzo della pasta tra € 9 e 22. Food quality is average, what you pay is the location. Pasta dishes between € 9 and 22.

Good food. Fresh fish, ask for specials, good pizza. Good service and part of a Lido, so you can go to the beach, rent some sunbeds and then have lunch at the restaurant. Very relaxed atmosphere. Good with kids.
