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

The locals go here. We went twice and would have gone more if we had stayed longer. It's a little away from main tourist area but actually very easy to find at the far end of the wharf. The chef must love making food. Over the two nights, we have had grilled swordfish, crumbed swordfish, stuffed swordfish and macaroni swordfish.... More

Authentic Italian meal. Not a pizza on the menu just many dishes which were all interesting and tasty. The owner speaks limited English but several of the young waiters were able to help us. Such lovely people and great service. Very good wines on the wine menu. We had a thoroughly satisfying evening dining here. The restaurant is situated near... More
