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

We went to L'Acquario for dinner with our daughter, and it was one of the most amazing food experiences ever. It starts with a service that is so personalized that is almost a friendship. 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...

As a serious foodie and sushi chef I was keen to try out the local seafood in Sicily. I choose this restaurant and what a great choice I made! It was a highlight of this trip. Sunday lunch in this wonderful restaurant was amazing. Paolo the owner took time to take us through his shop next door where he has... More

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

The selection of fresh fish is unmatched for the area. The crusteans, many local and many flown in from France are unrivaled as well. The staff are knowledgable and friendly. They are glad to bring you over to the fish selection and explain what each one is and even describe how you may want to arrange your selection. They ask... More

We had a great quality dinner. A starter recommended by the waitress, a combo of seafood and fruit (she had actually offered one for each but we decided for just one to share) and as main courses a 25€ half languste and a 18€ seafood risotto from the menu. The mistake was not to ask for the price of the... More

Picked the restaurant based on reviews here and am so glad we made the €25 taxi journey from Taormina. As we got out of the taxi we saw the fishmongers shop next to the restaurant and had a look in and were greeted by the owner who proceeded to show us around for about 15 minutes. It's great to see...
