Description: For Anyone Sailing The Isole Eolie In The Tirreno Sea, A Must!
Reviewed March 23, 2011

Travelling in the Aeolian Islands there comes a time when you are over simple deep fired seafood, no matter how good and how fresh, a craving for food with imagination and sophistication, something to wake up the taste buds then its time for Da Alfredo's in Cucina at Lingua. Located behind Da Alfredo's popular granita bar on the seafront, the food is a big surprise. Delicate flavors, using local produce and tweaked traditional island recipes. Our entree was a timbale of eggplant puree topped with garlic prawns and a pasta of fish with orange zest. Both were outstanding, complex and subtle. The main course of seared tuna was perfectly cooked but perhaps lees successful because it was more like what we had eaten at the other more simple restaurants on the island. The other main course was a whole fish crusted with almonds which was good but rather expensive. Next time I would try the non fish dishes for the main courses.
I am returning to Salina in September and hope to try more things on the menu. A very talented chef, taking the local produce to a new level. By the way the granita's at the cafe are not to be missed, especially the pistacio or the coffee.
It was also the only place I could find Wifi as the local internet cafe was never open.
