Ate here and had an ok experience. One thing which certainly didn't help - we arrived just after opening and were one of a handful of people in the restaurant. They have an abundance of staff as the place gets very busy later on, and our first 15 minutes were spent with about 6 tuxedo'd waiters hovering around our table,... More

One of the best restaurants we have ever been to! Especially the pasta and the risotto were one of the tastiest I have ever had! We will never forget. The food and the service are worth the price.

Excellent restaurant and the best I've been to in Italy. Staff very friendly and helpful with explaining the menu. Had incredible crayfish and prawn pasta (like ravioli) - don't even bother looking at the menu. Just order this!! Others had risotto and two lots of tuna. All delicious. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food and lovely location

Service was very friendly, kind, extremely polite and multilingual. Food was convincing and wine was good. Nevertheless the price was high and in comparison to the price value ratio of other restaurants in Lipari a little bit too expensive.

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
