We ate here as part of our Savouring Sicily tour with the amazing Enza. I understand that the restaurant is connected with the superb A Pinnata where we stayed and about which I have already written. The location on the piazza under the castle and overlooking the port and city is breathtaking. The tables are well spaced and immaculately set... More

This restaurant has been around over 100 years. And the food is still fantastic. A large airy space on top of Lipari, the service is impeccable. My wife and I were not particularly hungry so we shared the Ravioli stuffed with Grouper and a Macarroni Ragu. Both we're beyond excellent, full of flavor, cooked to absolute perfection. We finished with... More

That was not the great experience we were expecting! Restaurant is located at the top of the historic city. And is an institution in Lipari and you can feel it as a tourist. We were not warmly welcome first by what seems to be the son's owner. We were not allowed a table by the window even if the restaurant... More

We had a few antipasti to start they were ok and then fish grilled with salad. I thought €48 for a local grilled fish was a bit steep! In saying that it was cooked very well........

Recommended by our tour manager and also in Lonely Planet. Our three course meal cost approximately 50 euros including wine. The restaurant isn't nearly as scary as it looks at first sight. The staff are very helpful and our waiter spoke excellent English. This helped enormously as the menu is lengthy and entirely in Italian! Four of the five of... More

Very wide choice of local suggestions. Have their own boat and their own fish. Food was very good. Desserts were excellent. I ate a cannolo mamma mia delicious. The owner even explained to me how to eat (with my hands). Wine suggestion was very good and on the low side of the price range. Very professional and friendly waiters. Amazingly... More

Filipinos was recommended by our taxi driver after a tour of the island. We weren't exactly sure what to expect, but Filipinos exceeded any expectations we could have ever possibly had. The food was excellent and the service even better. A must visit if you are in Lipari.

We did a day trip to Lipari from Milazzo and arrived starved. Lipari was hot and crowded and all the restaurants on the main street were packed. We tried waiting at a couple of places for a table but we were ignored. It was August and the wait staff must have been exhausted from a long summer. I finally remembered... More

We went to Filippino on the recommendation of a friend and of our hotel. I enjoyed my meal, but my partner thinks his was perhaps the best meal of our 2+ week trip. My partner is a native Italian speaker, the restaurant's friendly owner came to our table and chatted, and then chatted some more. He explained how they use... More
