We were taken to this little gem by Strombolian locals and I'm glad we had a bit of local knowledge when navigating our way from the main port of Stromboli. In saying that, this place is absolutely worth the effort. We went late afternoon so we could watch the sunset from our table - something I strongly recommend, the vista... More

The restaurant is a wonderful position and you eat under a sky of stars. We had a mixed of grilled fish and seafood, all was very nice. Chocolate cake was superb.

The ingredients are fresh and local: don't miss caponata and cannoli. The view is spectacular: don't miss the sunset.. Highly recommended!!!

The restaurant is in a lovely spot,... More

Beautiful place. Stunning view. Nice staff. Went there twice and had some amazing fish dishes, with pistachios and almonds for 15-16 Euros. Large portions.

La Stella is truly an amazing dining experience, and by far the best restaurant on the island of Stromboli. It requires a solid climb up the very steep paths of Ginostra to get there, but the panoramic view and the amazing food make the hike truly worth it. The menu is predominantly based on locally caught seafood and is paired... More
