“A modern touch doesn't hurt...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

After a week in Sicily (including the smaller Eolie Islands) and always been offered Pizza, Pane Cunzato or various type of traditional Pasta it was refreshing to step into La Kasbah, a modern looking restaurant. The dishes are a modern and inventive interpretation of traditional italian cuisine. Prices are more than reasonable and the atmposphere was great. Well done!

“Make sure you get the right address!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

The first thing you need to know about Kasbah is that it is no longer at the address showing in the latest Rough Guide. Instead you'll find a restaurant with no obvious name at that address. Perhaps they are hoping people will wander in assuming it is Kasbah! We didn't as we double checked Trip Advisor and found the new address. The real Kasbah is very nice. Set in a lovely old courtyard it oozes class and elegance. Everything about it is very stylish. We were in the mood for pizza as after ten days in Sicily I really felt I wasn't consuming my quota. There's a big list to choose from - some are classics, others are more contemporary. This is best illustrated by our choices. My wife's pizza was a classic with buffalo mozzarella, tomato and basil whereas mine was topped with tonno affumicato (the most amazing smoked tuna, which is something of a local delicacy), black pepper, lemon juice & rocket and no tomato sauce. Both featured nice thin crispy bases - a must when it comes to good pizza as far as I am concerned. There's also lots of pasta, fish etc to choose from if that's what you fancy . A cool place. Recommended.

“Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

I visited lipari in July with family and we stumbled upon kasbah by accident, entering the front door we thought we were entering a small cafe, when we got to the outdoor eating area we were wowed! V modern open space oozing character and lit with suspended lighting. Our first impression was wow this looks great, our first meal was so amazing we returned 2 more times, the presentation and flavors were fantastic, beef slow cooked in Marsala wine is a must. This chef knows how to excite your palate! Kasbah is a wonderful place oozing atmosphere, the staff were wonderful and patient in translating the menu for us and recommending dishes to us, thank you for a wonderful experience , in my view you deserve a Michelin star !

“Had a better pizza!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Lovely location and nice atmosphere but disappointed with the pizzas. Very expensive pizza night out at 90Es for 4 pizzas and a pasta dish.
