Very good Italian dishes with a great selection of wines. Whenever I sail to Naxos I will have dinner at this place. You don't have a great view as on a small inside street just outside of the castle, but you will be looking at your food and your friends most of the time anyways.

Out of two bruschetta for starters the black truffle one was completely burnt on one side and they tried to conceal it with the toppings. Both were very dry and very basic for the price. The salmon main course was also completely overcooked and dry and they made the bizarre decision to breadcrumb the outside of a salmon cutlet that... More

Not hard to find, situated in a central alley in the town of Naxos, L'Osteria offers great italian cuisine with a taste of Naxos! You can enjoy your dinner in a nicely decorated small garden, but be careful to book a table first, especially during August! Delicious starters, italian pasta and an excellent sword fish was our choice! The chef,... More

Food is excellent. Service is great. Dolly is very hospitable. I had dinner three times, once last year and twice this year...memorable experiences. Italian fine cuisine, served with the warmth of an Italian family..a well run family business in the heart of Chora.

My wife and I had dinner at L'Osteria last night. We don't consider ourselves experts in Italian food but we really enjoyed our meal and found it very original and delicious. We ordered a prosciutto and parmigiano reggiano appetizer, quatro formaggi ragu niocchi and sea bass with aromatic rice. All dishes were excellent especially the homemade niocchi. To finish off...

Tucked away in the old part of Naxos town this delightful restaurant with lots of character is a place well worth visiting. It has a small menu, this is because everything is made freshly and tastes delicious. It is a family run business where there is good attention to detail, excellent service as well as great food.

Blimey what can I say. Had walked past here over the years the restaurant always looks amazing. Finally had a chance to go for a meal without the entire family so headed straight here. The food was shameful. I have never eaten such over described, inedible trash. The owners really should try the food before they send it out -... More

We were expecting something delicious in a lovely setting but we were disappointed on both fronts. It seems a shame as there were a lot of competent staff busy in the kitchen - not really authentic Italian.
