Description: 28 years ago, Mamma Santina, decided to open her kitchen to the public and offer a taste of typical aeolian cuisine and warm hospitality. 28 years down the line, the same recipes, taught to her by her granmothers, have been passed on to the following generations, joined by new ideas.Here in Mamma Santina hospitality, welcoming atmosphere, discrete and professional service are a good complement to our dishes. Our panoramic terrace overlooking the sea and the islands of Lipari, Stromboli and Panarea is the ideal setting for a romantic dinner or a moment to share with family and friends.

“Excellent fresh food, cozy terrace”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We had dinner here as a group of eight. The restaurant has a wide range of fresh seafood and a cozy terrace so it was worth the climb getting there. The staff is really nice as well.

“Delicious Culinary Experience”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

One must try this restaurant a all costs. The food is divine, freshest fish and the desserts are out of this world. The service was very good too and the patrons were all practically foreign with the few locals thrown in. I will definitely go back to this restaurant as soon as I possibly can. An experience not to be missed.

“Absolutely delicious”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

We were fortunate enough to have several meals at Mamma Santina during our five-day stay on Salina. The menu was so enticing that we ended up eating at Mamma Santina every night of our visit, so we could try all the options. The fish is fresh caught every day, and the pastas are incredible. Favorites included stuffed anchovies, pasta with 14 herbs, pasta with octopus ragu, pasta with black squid ink, any fresh fish, and the mixed antipasti. Desserts are also delicious, and we especially liked the Virgona and Fenech white wines. The setting is gorgeous, overlooking Panarea and Stromboli (which diners keep an eye on, waiting for the flashes of red). The service is impeccable, laid back and professional.
