Angelo takes such fantastic care of you and provides quality service here at this restaurant. It has an old school authentic Siciliana feel to it. We even had a band play to us at the table which added to the atmosphere (these guys just roam around Giardini Naxos). The quality of the food is not as high up as other... More

We ate here several times, and each time, the food was very tasty and fresh, Very helpful and friendly owner, he gave us complimentary fresh fruit and cakes, and helped us including tips about what we can visit in the area.The restaurant is very clean and original, with a typical Sicilian atmosphere. I will definitely return.

A friend had gotten a recommendation to go to this restaurant... big mistake. We asked for recommendation and the owner said get the macaroni & lasagna. Two of us got this and the others ordered pizza (later we noticed everyone else with pizza... a hint we missed). The owner "offered" appetizers, cookies and almond wine. We ordered house wine. The...

We went to this Restaurant for dinner on the personal recommendation of our favourite Italian restaurant owner at home. Unfortunately the food was un-lovingly prepared and presented, the traditional dishes were made with cheaper alternatives and the wine was off. The owner asked us if we wished to try a few starters/sweets on the house and although some of our... More

The bruschetta we shared as a starter was nice, after that the menu for both of us was.. bad! The antipasti contained of green olives with brown spots, melting/ sweaty cheese, vegetables from a can; not fresh and very very oily melanzane. The lasagne was not tasty at all and looked like a pudding. A disappointment. The 25 euro not... More
