Very good food and not expensive. The fish is fresh and cooked in an excellent way. Very good value for money.

After all these positive reviews I expected much more (much!!!). The place isn't nice at all, but as we all know " don't judge from outside.." yes, the fish wasn't bad, but nothing special at all. I think for this kind off place the prices is too high.

I'll Giardino dei Sapori is an unassuming treasure. This family owned restaurant offers fine, fresh fish that is simply delicious. We started with a seafood salad, mussels, swordfish parmigiana,grilled eggplant and salad.

Stopped in Ispica for lunch and stopped at this exquisite fish restaurant. We had a marvelous antipasto of fish and mussels, followed by grilled swordfish,calamari and spigola. Really mouth watering. Really worth a visit if you are in the area.

Very welcoming hosts, an excellent sea food dinner, very reasonable price and divine "cannoli di ricotta". Highly recommended. A restaurant for locals, so must be good.

We ate here after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The food was great, especially the carob pasta dish. The service too was very good.

During our Sicily-Trip we've been in some fancy good restaurants recommended by different travel guides, but at some point we were disappointed because it's so hard to find one of those jewels with plain simple authentic high quality food, which the Italian and Sicilian Cousin supplies like no one else - and one restaurant not spoiled by too many tourists....

Great place to go for casual seafood dining. We shared an appetizer and a pasta dish and ordered two 2nd's. All was excellent, but still too much food. The price was very good. What made it special was the owners Tino and Enzo.

The most incredible experience of life...fresh and well cooked seafood! It is not easy to explain as there are no words to describe the excellent concert of tastes, you have to experience it. Well done and we will definitely come back.
