We stayed in the beautiful Oasis Boutique hotel very close to Da Pina restaurant. The service is stunning and the food delicious, best fish and pasta we had!

Me and my wife went to Da Pina for dinner. We liked it. Close to the port, open until late and a good wine list. As always, Italian menus are organized in three course: appetizer, first and second. Considering it was late we did not had much. My wife had a local fish (white meat) with salt and I had... More

We decided to visit this restaurant after a friend recommended it and we've read some comments here on tripadvisor. The place is fine, even if some details could be a bit more modern. The staff is super kind, but often a bit overwhelming, with continuous questions, guidance, pleases and thankyous... they try a bit too hard. I don't find the... More

My wife and I were on Panarea for a day trip and happened upon Da Pina towards the end of the lunch service. The staff were welcoming and attentive and we enjoyed magnificent spaghetti with mussels, a simple dish but probably the best seafood pasta we have had - perfectly cooked pasta, fresh ingredients and stunning flavours. A memorable meal.

Truly outstanding classic restaurant which combines the freshest ingredients of highest quality with Eolian tradition & charm. A true Panarea institution. Large, beautifully presented dishes and great attention to detail in table arrangements. Nice living room atmosphere and exquisitely friendly service. But what counts most is the taste: Best ever tuna steak, amazing batutto di gamberi & eggplant gnocchi &... More

Had lunch here, was overall pretty good. Very expensive (110€ - one course each with bottled water!) but I had a HUGE steak which was delicious...(by huge, I mean probably close to if not more than 400g) Value for money is objective, we enjoy food so don't mind paying for quality, but this may not be the case for students/travelers...

Taken back a little by the price of the menu compared to other restaurants on the island. BUT, food quality and size of meal offer was exceptional. So all in all represented good value for quality and quantity. Could not fault any of the dishes we shared. Intense flavours and freshness of product showed. My Spaghetti was made with fresh... More

I must say I am quite surprised by the bad reviews written below. It is as if they talked about a completely different restaurant. We had lunch there with my wife and two children and everybody was excited by it. The tuna cake, orata, steak, gamberi pasta, salad, grilled vegetables, desserts, wine. Everything was simply amazing. Service was good, but... More

My 10 year old son made a specific request to return to Da Pina for lunch once again this year while we were on Panarea, not that we had to be persuaded. This is one of our favourite restaurants on island, particularly due to the staff, many of which returns year after year. Probably the best pasta a la norma... More

Premise: I am Italian, I love food and I am used to spend a lot of money on it. This restaurant mirrors all the bad things I can imagine about a food experience. Starting from the menu.. it does not reflect the italian food variety, appetizers, pasta dishes and mains have all the same price, no matters if we are... More
