This restaurant, mentioned in Lonely Planet, now spans both sides of the road. Perfectly acceptable pizza (nice crispy base) and lasagne for lunch for two of us. Service was not the quickest but very friendly.

We ate here on a night where they were obviously very busy, we waited for a table at 1030pm! It was worth the wait, very tasty pasta dishes and very good service.

We enjoyed eating here more than in any other place in Lipari. We went here for lunch, and my pasta with eggplant was fantastic. Wish we'd eaten dinner here as well. Good food, good ingredients.

We were recently in Lipari and we were experiencing unseasonably cold and rainy weather therefore we didn't want to search too far for a restaurant. We were at the marina having an apertivo and started heading back to towards town when we walked by this restaurant and decided to go in. The restaurant was almost filled and we got the... More

This pace has a cool name but positive things almost stop there. The food was poor and seemed pre-coocked, we had 2 different fish-based pasta courses which were way too flaccid with almost no fish in it. I returned my plate and the second round was even less seasoned though a little less flaccid. If you are a foreigner you... More

The owner of this restaurant knows how to greet his guest. His menu is in different languages. That restaurant has limited, but good choice of pasta plates and sea food. I had squid which was perfectly cooked and my wife had clam pasta that was delicious.

My wife and I both ordered the Aeolian fish. The owner said it was sea bass therefore we ordered it. This restaurant was in the Lonely Planet guide and that is why we went there. The Aeolian fish was terrible. It certainly was not sea bass. It seemed to be heavily breaded, Neither of us finished this poorly described and... More
