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

Mauritzios was an absolute joy to visit and eat in. Not just great food and wine but a most charismatic and charming host, who himself clearly loves the food he cooks. I can't recommend it strongly enough. Enjoy

Ristorante Gastronomia La Forgia Maurizio is the exception. We walked in late in the afternoon after the lunch rush, and the restaurant was quiet. We were treated like expected, returning guests, and no mention... More

We have been eating at Maurizios restaurant twice in June 2014. The fist time we just stumbled into his restaurant by accident after a treckingtour during a daytrip to Volcano. The last ferry was leaving the island at 20.05 and we came to the restaurant at 19.15. We had pasta with Sardines and parmigiana melanzane. It was all quite good.... More

A really nice atmosphere, was a bit worried that it would be crowded as it's the #1 place but we lucked out.
