Filippino's is an island highlight, much lauded as a (perhaps the) pinnacle of fine dining on Lipari. I'd argue that point, having eaten in other restaurants every bit as good in terms of the quality of the food, and in many cases superior in service. You're buying a tableware experience here, and if that's your principal interest then yes, this... More

Super sweet little town- restaurants & shops all cute, fun places to sit & have a drink & people watch. The restaurant Filippino Was suggested by a tour guide who showed us around the quaint city. (Interesting museum in this town too!) The waiters are dressed up... At first felt a bit put off, then they became quite charming! Great... More

While this restaurant is regarded as the best on Lipari, I'm afraid it left me a little cold. It is a self consciously "occasion" Italian restaurant (generally only seen on The Sopranos or in the 1980s) with its hordes of white-coated waiters, compendious wine list and an upmarket wedding venue ambience. Oh, and the prices. The son of the owner... More

Friends booked a meal for six at the Ristorante Filippino. It purports to be grand and this is reflected in the prices. The outdoor (covered) area is pleasant and tables well laid with white table cloths, cutlery and glassware. For my main course I ordered a fillet steak with pepper sauce. The steak was beautifully tender and cooked nicely but... More

Our dinner at Filipinno was well beyond expectation. It's a relatively large restaurant so we were not expecting the close and professional attention that we received. We were attended by five or six staff, headed by an English speaking veteran who directed everyone according to our preferences. The pasta, seafood and local wine were all excellent and the staff were... More

We had a lovely last dinner in Lipari here. It felt like a fine dining meal but was very reasonable price-wise and it was hard to fauly. The staff are attentive and friendly, the restaurant is large and airy and has been around since 1910. The menu is in Italian but the waiters were happy to help explain particular items.... More

Our group enjoyed a lovely lunch at this restaurant that has served the area for generations. The staff was wonderfully, old world charming. The meal was very, very good. A tomatoes and capers salad highlighted local specialties. Fresh fish and seafood risotto were perfect in this garden setting, high above the sea.

Excellent service that is both formal and friendly. Food is fantastic local Sicilian. It can get pricey (after a good bottle of wine, three course meal including a full fish served to the table, the bill was 200 euros for 3 people), but if you are looking for a place to splurge, this is it.

We had dinner at Ristorante Filippino and it was superb! The ambiente in this more than 100 year old place is exquisite. The attention of the staff is outstanding and so are their recommendations for wine. We came in pre-season and had a choice of tables, however, it is probably a good idea to reserve. Tables on the outside, by... More
