Was here over 25 years ago and had quite a memorable meal in an outdoor garden. It's now enclosed and the menu did not have the dish that we remembered. However, every dish that we did have was just right. From the wine to the wonderful cannoli everything was just right and the service was exemplary.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed it. That dish you requested was not there that day because working with the fresh fish of the night we never know what fish will be catched, in fact, the menu is done daily as a result of the night's catch. Thank again and I hope to see you soon and not... More

I utterly love food and especially, fresh, locally sourced produce and catches. Sadly Filippino did not tick any of these boxes and served up greasy, tired dishes, that did not encapsulate any of the food that the Sicily brings to mind. The prices were astronomical, the service was lax and unfriendly and the atmosphere was rigid. We didn't even think... More

I went to the Lipari island of the Eolia islands in order to drink that wine. Only 45kl for one year products. First I went some cafe-bar near the port. That shop owner recommended this restrante for my lunch, instead of some one which open only for dinner. Fortunately this is located near the castle & the museum, which I... More

We had dinner at this restaurant upon recommendation of the hotel. We found an excellent ambience, with a flair of past centuries, a very welcoming and attentive personnel and tasty food at reasonable prices, although the portions were quite small. We had cold rolls of swordfish and tuna, grilled zucchini with garlic and parsley, tuna braseola, and breaded swordfish. For... More

This restaurant has been in the same Family for 104 years and they really put in the extra effort to keep everything up to a high Level. Situated between both ports, away from the hustle and bustle. Great for lunch or dinner. Although you sit indoors, all... More

We had such a wonderful time at this establishment, first and foremost because of the perfectly executed food. We had starters of fish and seafood, and pasta and risotto, and a lovely local wine. All of the food was perfect, from execution, to freshness of ingredients, to seasoning, to flavour combination... and the formal service was warm and professional.
