You are instantly enticed by the harbourside location. Food isn't cheap but, once again, location is the pull. Food good but service v average and the entire lunchtime experience spoiled by being told to "hurry up, we're now closed!" by the manager, while we were finishing our wine. Extremely disappointed and after spending a lot of money and a large... More

The view was beautiful, this is why we choose this restaurant. The owner was totally rude when we arrived. We were 4 adult 4 children. We were the 3rd table in the restaurant. We ordered antipasti, primi piatti and secondo piatti. After 45 minutes we asked about our meal (till that nearly all the 10 table got minimum the antipasti).... More

Excellent location, staff very friendly. We tried the set menu and thoroughly enjoyed every course. Portion sizes were just right. Definitely worth a visit.

Context: Monday evening, mid-October, had good lunch at Aquacalda. So not looking for great deal but found Al Pirata to have a truly superb setting tucked away in the corner of Marina Corta. If the rest of the menu is as good as the two pasta dishes we had, it's well worth trying - we shall again in a day... More

Beside the lovely view the food was inedible and too expensive. The waiter coughed on the food, and the waitress looked depressed at having to recommend such disgusting overpriced and hygienically suspect food

We unfortunately had our last meal at this establishment of a week full of amazing food - I wish we had returned to Da Filippino. Store bought bread straight out of a bag, surly service, and overpriced, tasteless pasta. I had a seafood pasta, and my dining partner had squid ink pasta that were mere shades of what we had...

Our cruise ship was docked in Lipari for the day. After walking around this quaint place, we headed back to the port to find a place for a leisurely lunch. The spot is adjacent to a lovely church and has the best views of the harbor because it is slightly elevated. Service was very prompt and courteous. The seafood salad... More
