The food is good, the service is great, in my opinion the difference in quality to other restaurants in the area did not justify the price difference.

Absolutely fabulous! We stopped for a casual dinner and ended up with the perfect dining experience. The owner provided us with his recommendations and tailored a special dinner for us, perfectly suited for our appetite, accompanied by a perfectly fitting wine. What can I say... just go there and enjoy! You won't regret it!

This is an excellent fish restaurant. You won't be disappointed. It is not cheap, but fish of this quality is very hard to find at any price. The "crudo" is the best you can find anywhere and is reason to come seek this place out. The wine list is excellent and the service is also great.

Great place for a bit more expensive fish/seafood night! The food is amazing, the fresh products and the chef's preparation makes the difference compared to the so many 'normal' fish restaurants on Sicily. Paolo is great as well. He is the owners and is full of passion regarding the products (food and wine) he serves. You clearly see he knows... More

Then, the food, oh my.. best, most fresh sea food ever! Huge variety with an amazing display of all sorts of fresh sea food. And then... More

My husband, 2 year old, and I visited AD a few days ago and we're still talking about it. It was an incredible experience. We were the first to arrive (my son eats early) and like some of the previous reviewers, we were greeted warmly and professionally by Paolo and his wait staff then immediately visited the seawater aquariums next...

Since I was part of a tour, we normally ate where the tour took us, but on a free night in Giardini Naxos we asked our taxi driver to take us to a good seafood restaurant. The driver took us to L'Acquario. We were brought into the fresh fish side of the restaurant, and were amazed by the tank of... More
