This is a great restaurant especially for those who love pizza. They were very friends with our daughter. We chose a long pizza marinara and it was very very good.

"Homemade lasagne" was big disappointment. It had no taste at all. Even microwave lasagne from lidl has far better taste, and that says it all. Can't recommend this place to anyone. They also charged additional 2€ per person for something that I don't know what.

After our visit in 2014th, this was the place we wanted to visit the most for tasting it's amazing 1m pizza again! So hard to make it, but they did it - two years later the pizza at Il Covo is even better!!! Definately #1 place in Giardini Naxos if you are true pizza lover! The pastry is so good... More

Well, that's the story. We went out for pizzas and Il Covo was exactly what we were looking for. Nice place, good service and great pizzas as well as side-order salads.

The pizza is as good as it gets! Try the pistachio pesto and speck pizza! Service is good but not great. Outdoor space is beautiful. Mind you the lime fruit trees will be full of wasp and bees the hour before sunset, not that it should bother you.

Had the fruits of the sea and vegetarian pizzas, they were both ok and went down nicely. They were open already at 17.00 although there were very few guests. One nice thing and the reason for four starts instead of three is that they gave our 5 year old colored pens and something to draw on which was very considerate.

Great meal of Sicilian starters (about 6 items for 10 euro shared by us both) followed by a shared pizza and salad and 1/2 lt of local wine. We were well stuffed after that. Outdoor eating area was pleasant but spoilt for us by music video projector and loud music videos.

Great outdoor pizza restaurant which specialises in huge pizzas up to a metre long. Me and my wife shared a 1/2 metre pizza with separate toppings after a nice bruschetta starter. Very filling and in lovely surroundings.

We ate here twice on our week-long holiday. There's a large,attractive outdoor area with a TV screen (the Euros were on so we bonded with our fellow eaters over the football!) My sons said these were the best pizzas they had all week. It was also the only place we came across that sold very large 'sharing' pizzas.

This place is brilliant. I conquered a huge Half metre pizza that was stunning. Great value for money too, house wine served in a carafe for €5.
