Service was bad (plated were removed while we were still eating), squid was not squid but octopus...and so on. Good advice spend... More

My husband, daughters and I went for my husband's birthday dinner. The seafood was outstanding, the service was lovely despite the language barrier and they brought a beautiful dessert to the table for his special day. One of our favorite restaurants in Sicily!

The views from our bus journey made our trip out of Lipari worthwhile then lunch at La Macine the final touch. We had a friendly welcome from all the staff, we chose to sit outside in a lovely setting. We were the only guests when we arrived but another table full soon followed. We chose a fish based pasta dish... More

Wonderful food and location. The Antipasti selection is a meal in itself. The Patroness' rabbit stew is out of this world. This is a superb restaurant.
