Absolutely Fresh Fish

We had a very good dinner with deliciously fresh fish, excellent black ink rice (specialty). Pity the tuna escalope was overlooked. Wide choice of Sicilian wines. Excellent service. Pity the square in front is closed off for works by the authorities (apparently since four years, a shame and... read more

I would like to start with, the service was wonderful and very attentive. The food was extremely fresh, but the preparation was not to my liking. The fish was very, very fishy. I know, fish is supposed to be fishy, but we ate fish all over Italy, and this was the only restaurant where I went home hungry because it... More

An old school Italian restaurant with everything going for it. Wonderful room to walk into immediately gives you a sense of occasion. Highly professional staff that know what they are doing and go about it with calmness that is refreshing to see in action. The food is good ,but it is the overall experience for me that sets this apart.... More

Pity the square in front is closed off for works by the authorities (apparently since four years, a shame and certainly a problem for this well managed restaurant). Recommended.

All the food was fine but i had the world famous soup. It certainly wasnt worth the money...a 4 euro soup with a 20 euro plate thrown in Everything else was good but not excellent although service was very helpful.

Ate here with friends we met at our hotel. We didn't book but it was no problem getting a table. The restaurant is open air with a decent ambience, unfortunately the vista is a let down with the building works all around but that obviously isn't their fault. There was no English menu which proved difficult. A waiter was summoned... More

I used to come here as a kid with family and friends and I was glad to have the chance to come back this time. Service was kind, but everything was done in a rush... I don't even understand why as I don't think they do two dinner seatings each night in July. We were done in a matter of... More

FANTASTIC ! The pasta with roasted cheese was incredible. The Scorpion Fish Soup is world famous and rightfully so. After ordering the soup the restaurant gives a hand painted hand made Italian bowl as a souvenir of the fabulous soup. A Must Must Dine in Lipari

An excellent restaurant with perfect service (mostly Pietro and also Pasquale) who served us wonderfully, professionally and in a most friendly way. The advice was excellent and not too pushy. All our wishes were catered for. For starters the buffalo mozzarella was excellent as was the mixed fried fish. My friends had the scorpion fish cooked in sauce and loved... More

I love fresh fish. Real fresh. In this restaurant, besides having it the freshest, they cook the fish beautifully. Upon arrival, you can watch the fresch fish of the day, choose the piece you want and they will cook it. I recommend eating it grilled. The price is reasonable treat of fresh fish. (If this opinion is not well written... More
