Please advoid at all cost. I had a caprese salad, the greens consisted of wilted tasteless iceberg lettuce and the tomatoes tasted like they were imported from the USA--nothing like what I've experienced at the wonderful markets throughout Sicily. Then I had a risotto with seafood, the mussels were very well cooked and seasoned however the risotto was not a... More

We stopped here twice during our stay in Giardini-Naxos and the staff made us feel right at home. Food was good, not great, but was some of the best we had in this beach town in Sicily.

The food is very nice and well priced and the staff were lovely, particularly Roberto who appreciated our terrible but well meaning attempts at Italian (although unnecessary as his English is fine!)

Sikelia is a quiet nice place to visit to take a drink or an ice cream. We watched football here one evening and ate pasta carbonara. The dish was ok, but not very special. We went back to sikelia a few times later, but only to take a drink or an ice cream. Really nice staff and pretty cheap.

We went for lunch and enjoyed the staff, especially Roberto. We got drinks, bruschetta, and calamari/chicken dishes. The food was average but the atmosphere was relaxing and Roberto wanted to make sure we enjoyed our time.

If you are staying at the Hilton Giardini Naxos - skip their overpriced breakfast and walk across the street to Cafe Sikelia. For the price of 1 person at Hilton you'll feed three here and with better food. Their service was excellent as well.
