Don't Eat Here!

This is my only bad eating experience in all of Sicily and Italy, in many years of regular travel there. The food is marginal, but the employees here are surly and mean. There are no prices posted, so they charge locals a small amount and tourists an excessive amount. Our meal was the most... read more

Local cafe that's open late -- seems to be the town watering hole. Desserts & bar, what else could you ask for.

Fantastic place! Beautiful food for lunches, all homemade! All sicilian specialities are presented on the day, excellent gelatos - the best on the island, big cappuccinos, quick and kind staff (rarity for Sicily)!

The Lipari Islands are having great problems. The tourists don´t come there as they used to. This is visible everywhere. Makes it hard to keep up the standard, of course. To compensate this quit a few bar and restaurant owners meet those of us who come there with higher prices. Not a very good tendency, one must say. But this... More

We could try some typical sicilian pasta and fish specialities at Papisca. It tasted so great! Great ice creams also! The boss and personal were all very friendly! I recommend this bar directly at the seaside.

After my husband and I arrived into the port at lipari and were hocked to rent a scooter, we eventually did like all tourists and gave in. We rode what seemed like an eternity but was essentially an 8 minute ride from the port to the only open cafe we could find. We had not eaten yet and honestly anything... More
