good pizza

Reastaurant very close to the Marina Lunga main harbour, along the main street of the village. I had a pizza and it was pretty good. Prices are in the average of the island.

I enjoyed my meal here in what is a really touristy place. Nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. I chose the fresh pasta dishes that are made in house and was impressed with both (the norma pasta and the Bolognese). My favorite part of the meal though was the caponata appetizer. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling in... More

Our family of five ate at II Galeone three times during our five day stay in Lipari and we were treated like good friends each time. The service was very good and we were always very satisfied with the food. The location is central and we sat under a canopy, which allowed for relaxing dinners. The atmosphere was inviting and...

We had dinner twice in Il Galeone during our week in Lipari. The atmosphere is genuine and simple. Food is very good (had spaghetti allo scoglio and pizza). Special mention to the owner, who is super friendly and helpful and he offers a Malvasia dessert wine at the end of every dinner. Try the pistachios pizza cause it's just amazing!

Went here on our first night in Lipari, in hindsight wish we had gone elsewhere. We did receive a friendly welcome but after our research on Trip Advisor we were expecting better quality food, it was pretty average. The staff were rushing to take my plate away as soon as it was empty and well before my partner had finished... More

Busy restaurant with good service In a prime location. Fresh local seafood was great, good wine-list and nice deserts. The owner was very engaging and we had lovely chat about Lipari the Islands and the people.

Warm and friendly family owned restaurant in central walking street of Lipari town close to the port. The best restaurant in the main street (Corso Vittorio Emanuele). Very attentive staff, well cooked traditional food at reasonable prices. Very good value. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic food experience. We spent two weeks on Lipari during the summer and autumn eof 2011 and was recommended to go to this family owned restaurant which was centrally located. It proved to be beyond our expectations. The service was friendly, helpful and personal. The food was exceptional with traditional family recipes specialising in local produce. The variety... More
