“Very good food, excelent atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

Reading the previous reviews, it seems that this is the preferred caterer for the Hilton guests across the street. It was our case too!
Roberto, the owner is paying a lot of attention to his customers, and the food is great! I recommend the Etna pasta and the Zu Saru spaghetti. Just go there and you'll eat something nice. By the way, not had a chance to say good bye to Roberto, so we will need to come back some other time :)!

“What a gem in Giardini Naxos!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

We read the reviews on here and since we were staying in the Hilton, it is right opposite and beats the hotel for atmosphere. The food was good, but it is the ambience of the place that is it's true appeal. The staff are beyond friendly and make you feel like a house guest rather than just a customer. We were there to watch the world cup and watched the first game between Argentina and Belgium and then decided to stay for the Holland against Costa Rica game. We are so glad we did. We had a 6 hour night in there with a LOT of different drinks. The staff were all Holland supporters and the place was packed with a serious party atmosphere. Needless to say we had a fantastic night with fantastic people and were back for lunch today. They all recognised us from the night before and made us feel at home all over again. We love this place and would highly recommend it!

“Great location, good food, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Cafe' Sikelia is just across the Hilton Hotel where we stayed. I loved the grilled shrimps with heads!! So flavorful and yummy. The proprietor offered a free sample of delicious almond wine. That is the kind of hospitality and generosity of that place.

“Very Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

This little cafe is awesome!! The staff (Roberto and his sisters) were so friendly and personable!!! It is a family run cafe. Although the menu is limited, they will cater to what you want. I highly recommend it! It is filled with ambiance!!

“expected more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

A typical toristic Restaurant. The food is fresh and tasty, the personal is friendly. But not for those who want to feel the real Sicilian atmosphere. The visitors are only tourists and the service is also so. It may be just because Giordini Naxos itself is a touristic place. But I must say the owner serves you by himself and is very friendly. I ate muscles and although they were for sure fresh, I didn't like the way of cooking. But pizza and wine are very tasty.
