We were SO glad we decided to eat here. DEFINITELY the best restaurant we went to on our Italy trip. The owner spoke great english and explained the menu to us. We LOVED the food. The menu option included a great variety of delicious food, home made bread, wine, water, and service all included in the price. DEFINITELY go here!... More

A taste explosion of simple food mixed with some exotic spices to form such flavours and textures. Mauritzio has the knowledge and the experience of the foods that he places in your mouth to make a beautiful journey become a memorable moment in your life. It was well worth the journey from Melbourne thru Europe to a little island off... More

This is a great little spot just off the dock. More vegetarian choices than usual for a Sicilian restaurant. Wonderful service and a friendly English-speaking owner happy to explain anything on the menu. One of the better meals we had in Sicily.

We had a very nice meal here to celebrate my friends 50th. There was a lot of vegetarian choices and we had a nice meal at a reasonable price. The manager is very friendly!

We stumbled across this restaurant after our walk up the volcano, not having done our research about where to eat, so are pleased to see that Maurizio's is number 1 restaurant on Trip Advisor for Vulcano, as it should be. Before our meal, we were treated to complimentary and very excellent antipasto - original and delicious using local produce with... More

The owner was very helpful explaining the menu and showing the local produce available. The pasta dishes were exceptional and we all wished we had them as a main course. We were given freshly baked bread and a plate of appetisers and the meal was extremely reasonable. There were 4 of us, we all had 2 courses, 3 carafes of... More

This was our favorite meal and restaurant during our three-week trip to Italy. We chose the fixed menu which they allowed two of us to share with an extra secondi. Every single dish was wonderful and the staff took time to explain each item in English. We were the last customers in the restaurant that night - Vulcano seems to... More

We already knew from our Tripadvisor research that we wanted to eat at this restaurant, and we had the same amazing experience everyone else is raving about. Our first meal was lunch (it was so good we returned for dinner the following night!) Maurizio is such a warm (and energetic) man. Neither my husband nor I speak Italian, so navigating... More
