Great location, nice food, disappointing seating

We ate here a couple of times, once to have the set menu of salad, primi (pasta) and secondi (meat/fish) and a second time to have pizza. Food was good if a little expensive compared to other restaurants in Lipari where there is more competition. The restaurant is located towards the Lipari end... read more

Loved eating at La Bussola! Great service, fantastic food and wine. All the fresh local seafood is wonderful - what ever you order you can't go wrong. We loved the ambience too!

My partner and I ate here on two separate occasions, as part of a walking tour group. We were staying at an apartment hotel, which I believe is the same family as this restaurant, so we ate here as part of the trip. Hence I can't comment on price or value since the menu selection was predetermined. One night we... More

Many beautiful meals enjoyed here, right on the water. Fresh seafood, an overall excellent dining experience. Low-key and relaxing part of the island, but still vibrant.

We treated ourselves to a night out here and we were not disappointed. Arriving just on sunset we were seated at the beach side of the restaurant and had the most amazing sunset experience. The staff were incredibly welcoming and attentive and the food was delicious. Great wine list as well. Overall a very pleasant experience.

We have just returned from a lovely holiday in Lipari and ate at this fantastic restaurant LA BUSSOLA nearly every single day!!! The chef patron is really very creative and does not hide the natural tastes of all his fresh fish but enhances them with his creativity, I have to say that I had the best risotto marinara ever there!!!...

La Bussola is a great family-owned restaurant in the Canneto bay section of Lipari, the largest of the Aeolian Islands. We went there almost every day/night on our recent trip to Lipari because the food was consistently delicious, the owners are sweet loving people that will look after you, and the location is right on the beach in a relaxing...
