Are you looking for a simple yet unique trattoria in Panarea? Then a stop over "Da Paolino is a must. Just to be clear, if you are looking for a fancy Italan restaurant with an important wine list, than this is not your place. Meanwhile...More

We ate here one evening and had a pleasant time. It's a family run establishment and pretty average to be honest. As is often the case in the Mediterranean the women were doing most of the work and the patron chatted up the pretty women....More

We stopped here when we took the aeolian islands mini cruise to see stromboli by night. We figured that something off the main street must offer decent food to continue existing. The staff we're not the super enthusiastic kind but the menu looked ok. We...More

We always get utterly confused whenever we look up reviews on Trip Advisor to find a restaurant. The first guy (owner?) had the time of his life while the next guy (his competitor across the street?) got sick for 3 days.... So here is a...More
