Good lunch - friendly, personal atmoshere

Mauricio is a charming host - eating there is a truly pleasant experience, in all aspects. The mixture of styles and the care of the detail is wonderful.

We visited this restaurant a few weeks ago without any information beforehand. At the end of October, not that many restaurants are open at Vulcano. So we were happy to find this one open during lunch time, and just popped in. We didn't regret it! Really good food at a modest price (rather rare at the Eolean islands!). The staff... More

we agree with all those that rate this very well. The food was excellent and Maurizio is a great character that turns a meal into a good evening . Mainly sea food and the quality of the fish is excellent . We went there three times on our eight days on the island, but you definitely need to book .... More

Maurizio does it right... The Classic Italian with a mid eastern flare sprinkled in is outstanding. Must go when on Vulcano!

Definitely one of the best meals we had in Sicilia during our 10 day trip! We had the set lunch, which is really great value for money. All the dishes were innovative, with touches of Middle Eastern and Indian flavors, and served by Maurizio himself, who is an excellent host. He accommodated our personal preferences and made sure we were... More

After a scooter tour this was the best place to celebrate my birthday with a great lunch. The owner is a very good host and made us very welcome! The food was good and very tastefully. For sure...we'll return to this nice restaurant and we'll tell all our friends to visit Maurizio! Keep up the good work! Arrivederci

You would not expect to find this fine, rustic reataurant on the island of Vulcano. It is because it uses exotic spices and is not afraid to dare mixing new flavors. You could be in Mexico, or in India and yet you are under the stars of this wild Sicilian island. Our well-travelled host, Maurizio, is a most pleasant fellow... More

One of our best meals we had on our two weeks stay on the Aeolian Islands was here at Maurizio’s. We had luck to get a table because the restaurant was nearly fully booked. If you want to go here, book in advance. We took the menu and enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. Food and drinks are... More
