Maurizio is someone atypical, very nice, speaking many languages, smiling, running everywhere, but so kind! The menu is delicious and gives a nice overview of different dishes.

One of the best dinner experiences we had on the island. Food was very fresh and tasty, but the best was the atmosphere and Maurizio the owner who seems to be really passionate about the restaurants and welcomes all guests as if they were his friends.

What can I say about this place and the incredible Maurizio, the owner.. He is a real connoisseur of products, quality and health and is really able to vary the food depending on your need. My boyfriend is celiac and he overwhelmed us with delicious gluten free products we will repeat at home. Grazie Maurizio sei unico :)

Did really like the place and the hospitality provided by Maurizio, a delighting host. He has been really nice in offering us very tasty dishes and making us feel really at ease. We liked some of the traditional dishes and I personally tasted a fantastic fish of the depths

Maurizio is a super host and kept serving delicious antipasti, primi and secondi piatti. The flavours were so rich and special and also the wine of the house was very good. All for a very reasonable price which made us to come back several times on our short stay at Vulcano.

Maurizio himself comes to every table and advises you on your order--we heard him speak at least three languages. He recommended a delicious meal for us and undersold us in every way--we couldn't believe how cheap our bill was at the end of the night. We were welcomed to the restaurant by an array of complimentary appetizers and the meal... More

Without ordering we received delicious starters and dessert including a glass of Malvasia (typical Eolian wine). The price for the whole meal was more than ok, considering the quality of the food and the friendly athmosphere! Mille grazie, Maurizio
