“The best pizza ever!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

First of all, I am Italian...so I always eat pizza and it is very difficult to find a good one...
But this one was EXCELLENT!
The Italian owners Roberto and Sara are very nice and the chef comes from Naples.

The restaurant has a wood fired oven and serves authentic Italian Naples-style pizza dishes at amazing prices (they also have special price offers such as a Margherita + Caipiroska at 10 euros if I rember well...).

Just to sum up: we also came back the day after! (and we usually like to taste "local" food, but this pizza was amazing!)

“Amazing Pizza!!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I've had a lot of Napoli style pizzas from various places and this one is truly one of the best! The prices are normal and you get to site outside very close to the beach and enjoy a professionally made Napolitan pizza, the plainer the beter, the sauce and crush are what make it amazing!

“Try it, you'll love it”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

This restaurant changed hands in May 2013, Roberto and Sara the new, young, Italian owners have a vibrant team working with them (Flora particularly is a peach) including a chef who hails from Naples.

They have a wood fired oven and serve very tasty and authentic Italian pasta and pizza dishes at amazing prices. They only buy quality ingredients grown locally and where possible, of an organic nature.

We went in one day with a 'OK, it's another Pizza restaurant' type of comment and two weeks later, had visited many times, we never had anything even approaching, mediocre, serive was brilliant, the food great and the view of the Naxos sunsets, wonderful!

If you're visiting during the day, Sottovento provide free beach beds and umbrellas for you to enjoy all day long and if you eat there regularly, will reserve a pair of beds frontline to the sea for you.

Eat here, you won't be disappointed!

“Great Pizza in Naxos”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

It is an Italian restaurant and they know how to make a pizza! Even the anchovy pizza was good. Very reasonably priced, wonderful service and the view is stunning.

“Wonderful Food, service and atmosphere”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This place is located right along the beach as you walk down from the city center. Beach chairs and tables await along the beach while the actual restaurant is located across the street about 50ft away. The restaurant has cabana booths, seating and very nice music.
