“Excellent Sicilian cuisine, great pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

When in Giardini-Naxos, treat yourself with a visit to this amazing restaurant! The atmosphere in the small, beautiful lemontree garden is cosy and lovely, the service is great and the food really outstanding!
The pizza is amazing, baked with love (!), in a real stone oven. Aparently it is the only place where you can order pizza by the meter, if you please:) Many of the guests in the garden is locals, so it seems like we are not the only ones that have found this treasure place. One of my favorites on the menu is the pasta with pistachio, which I can really recommend!
We have been several times to Restaurant il Covo, and have always had a wonderful evening, which is why I wanted to review it here.

“Tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

We had the sword fish rolls with fries and the home made lasagna. Both dishes were very good and at a reasonable price. The waiters are friendly and fast. There is not so much of an ambiance. I can recommend this restaurant for the food, if you are looking for a romantic ambiance, you will have to go somewhere else.

“Average pizza place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

Food was good, service was good but nothing special! Just an average place! Just a different shape of pizza! Kids enjoyed it!
