Enjoyable

La Cambusa was just the place after walking around for the morning. We wanted a light lunch, nothing too to clawing or heavy and therefore we were happy with what we got. I had the local Lipari salad - I was expecting a cold dish but this is hot, more like a ratatouille. It came with bread on... read more

We stopped here and chatted to the owner. He has Irish friends. The food was simple and tasty, he bottles his own wine which I loved. This was the best value meal we had on Lipari

I am going to write this review in English for the foreigners who are going to visit Lipari. I do not understand the bad reviews as the food I ate a La Cambusa was the best I experienced in Lipari and the price was right. Perhaps being Italian and knowing how to deal with the locals helped. We spent a... More

The service was poor and sadly the food wasn't much better. The pasta dish tasted like it was made with passata straight out the jar and the pizza wasn't much better. Was really disappointing meal particularly given the quality we experienced elsewhere during our stay in Lipari.

Great traditional Sicilian food, for a very good price. Especially the traditional sea food items are a clear recommendation, but also the lasagna is delicious. Pair it with their own white wine and you will have a fantastic dinner. The owners are lovely and friendly people and can tell you a lot about the history of Lipari, if you are... More

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.

excellent little restaurant in its category (aiming at tourists passing by in lipari's main street)... very fresh food, with daily some new gastronomic 'creation'. reasonably priced. nice terrac on both sides of the street. excellent lemon granita. excellent fish and shrimp dishes. in short: to be recommended. but if you want to eat in peace, observe the title of this...

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.
