Our first night in Giardini-Naxos, we wer kne of two couples in this now off season ristorante. We picked our own lobster, fresh from the tank where the Chef expertly grilled and prepared with spicy pasta and a wonderful tomato mozzarella salad. Delicioso

The owner is obviously passionate about his fresh fish. They do try to push customers to take the most expensive freshly caught fish but there are other choices on the menu. We enjoyed what we had but were not impressed with the quantity. Quite small...More

Nestled in the bay of Naxos to the sea and with a splendid view of Taormina for over forty years, the restaurant is managed with care and attention to detail. A food product of a modern interpretation of traditional Sicilian dishes and a wide variety of fish and shellfish along with a large supply of wines are the characteristics that distinguish it.
