We visited here based on good reviews but were really let down. We arrived to find the restaurant full and soon discovered that it was a birthday party for a teen girl. Between family and friends there was easily 30 people. All other diners were...More

Great service. Enormous pizzas (up to 1 meter). Seems quite popular but a bit boring interior. Is located very close to an amusment park.

I am returning to Giardini after two years and had dinner here last night and am eating again now. Thought I would check the rating and found this crazy. Tripadvisor is becoming a joke - how can this be so low down in the ratings????...More

If you want to try Bruschettas on the yesterday's, cold rubber bread - this is the place for you. Poor, long service and average prices, but the food was terrible. Bleh! Not recommended, absolutely.

It was so noisy that we didn't stay. We were sitting when a group of 20 children arrived for dinner. As the room is small it became like a canteen so we didn't order and just left.

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.

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...More
