Serving fresh and perfectly marinated or gratinated or baked sea food. Best clams i have ever had (i don't like clams...usually). Very authentic service, only one waiter speaking english, so communication was partially a little difficult. Also pizza especially sea food pizza is very recommendable!! And grappa barique and limoncelo are extraordinary. We went here 2 or 3 times and... More

It is my 2nd consecutive year of visiting this restaurant. Quality remained at least at the same top level. Seafood is fantastic and extremely fresh. Actually, I don't like too much to eat fish, this being the only place where I renounce eating beef or pork. The pizza worth a special remark, as well as the home-made pasta. Service is... More

We ate at Blue Ice 4 times during a 10 night stay at the Castello San Marco hotel. We found the wood fired oven pizza by far the best in the area - including Giardinni Naxos and Taormina, and also the most reasonably priced. The seafood and pasta dishes we had were also very good. The only dish which disappointed,... More

Blue Ice was recommended to us by a local person as the place to eat fresh and reasonably priced seafood. We had mixed antipasti of fish and seafood, fried squid, pasta with seafood and everything was excellent. I had seldom had such fresh fish in a restaurant. The setting is of a beach restaurant- they have a terrace facing the... More

The staff were wonderfully attentive and could not do enough for us. The table was beautifully laid . I now think on reflection I ordered the wrong food. My prawn cocktail was drenched in dressing and then my steak wasn't very appetizing as it was bathed in olive oil. That said, my husband went for fish for both courses and... More

We had a half-day rest on San Marco beach and poped in to have a lunch. We did not expect that the meal would be so good. The interior looks very simple as in hundreds Sicilian cafes by sea. We took pasta, risotto and panini. It was excellent cooked. Panini was baked while we were eating. Everything was fresh and... More
