The place is situated close to the bustling ferry. Great seafood and wine list, top hospitality,and nice ambience. Reserving place from before is recommended.

We were recommended this restaurant at the very left side of the main port and we trusted the staff in what we ordered. Unfortunately we trusted too much and we received a bill at end of the dinner that was out of the world...we shared 2 starters, one primo, one secondo and one cannolo plus a bottle of wine for...

What a brilliant experience at La Conchiglia. Usually hidden behind the ferry that stations in the harbour (only at dinner time, while at lunch time there's no hiding nor offending boat...) you'll find this very refined restaurant were its chef, Gennaro, has experience to sell and skills to teach all the younger generation. The food is delicious although the service... More

Located nicely overlooking the bay but do not expect too much of fine dining. If you go for pasta, seafood or fish you will not be disapointed.

I went for an afternoon walk & found this restaurant in a quiet part of the port. We checked out the menu & were not disappointed. Great tasty traditional Sicilian food. Service excellent. Beautiful view sitting right beside the sea. We watched some boats come in. Highly recommend this restaurant. Most of the tables were occupied.

We came on Saturday night, it was not too busy so we were hopeful of a good meal, but we were wrong... It started well, with lovely mixed crudo, which came fairly quickly. I ordered the tuna, which I didn't like, but that was just bad luck on my part. My partner asked for the fish of the day, the... More

Stopped by here while waiting for our ferries, was happy it was open until 3pm as we thought everything was closed for siesta. The clam, and the squid ink pasta were amazing. Bread was a little stale but the desserts made up for it.

Had noted the other positive reviews so we decided to give this restaurant a try. Clearly a favourite with the locals, we sat down and our order was taken confidently with advice from the waiter......we were just appreciating the lovely view of the harbour when a ferry pulls in ( see previous post) Unfortunately , the ferry boat was there...

We reached La Conchiglia through our host in Lipari and it was the best thing we could have done. We spent 2 days in Lipari and ate here lunch and dinner as the food was absolutely delicious. Best seafood and best fish I have eaten in quite a while and I've been travelling a lot around Italy. I would recommend... More

Why not a 5? The food is great and the service superior, so the only knock is the position in the port. We have been coming to La Conchiglia for years because the food is so good and the service is attentive. However, if you are dining when the ferry comes in, the scenery changes from a pretty port to... More
