“Food made specially for us.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

My husband had wanted a Calzoni - which wasn't on the menu - he mentioned this while looking at the menu and they said they would do one especially for him. My seafood risotto was good too.

“one of the best in this neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

Of the several pleasant restaurants in the neighborhood of the Hilton I found Gambrinus the best, chiefly because they have a wood burning oven for pizza. They are welcoming with free bruschetta. The spaghetti with sarde is first rate, and the pizza is fine. The prices are reasonable and the service is friendly.

“Very friendly, excellent value, good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

In a week-long stay in Giardini Naxos, we ate at Gambrinus 4 times (and not just because it was right over the road from our hotel!). While we had exhausted the range of vegetarian-friendly pizza on the menu by then, the food was so good we didn't bother trying anywhere else - and besides, even with my very limited Italian, we were able to order custom variants on the menu offerings without any problem.
Service was consistently friendly and efficient whilst low-key, our food arrived quickly and shamed anything I've ever eaten in Britain that claimed to be a pizza whilst being significantly cheaper than the well-known pizza restaurant and delivery chains here.
Well worth a visit.

“Nice friednly spot for a meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Went here a couple of times for a beer and a pizza. Wood fired oven, good selection of fish (that I can eat unfortunately) and a friendly knowledgeable service from the owner and his staff. Prices are very reasonable and with you can eat outside in 25C+ in mid September. Got talking to the owner and his wife and learnt a bit about some Sicilian superstitions.

“Nice restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

I was impressed with Gambrinus. They have a good range of dishes on their menu, including a chicken dish (Sicily seem to dislike chicken dishes, so I was pleased to have found one!). We also had take away pizza from Gambrinus on our last day as a quick lunch and we weren't disappointed. A Margherita was about 4 Euros and totally delicious!
