Very disappointing!

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.

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 the side... More

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.

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
