Located in Marina Corta of Lipari, just on the left of the church, this restaurant serves excellent food. The restaurant has a fantastic terrace on the sea - you can almost touch it! Friendly service, excellent fish and see food, average prices.

Food is honest and authentic, and reasonably priced. But the real draw is its location right on the water, tucked away from any crowds.

Great location by the sea; however, cover charge for completely stale bread; average food; average white wine

One of us had a badly undercooked piece of fish, but this was politely replaced by some well-cooked veal by our charming host. However, how is it possible to undercook branzano without being really careless?

This was an enjoyable meal, with a great view of the harbor in Lipari. The food was good and pricing was fair.

Sitting watching the boats go by is enchanting, the food is very traditional, but very nice. The host is very friendly, try the Spada Involtini and the chocolate molten pudding, excellent

You are instantly enticed by the harbourside location. Food isn't cheap but, once again, location is the pull. Food good but service v average and the entire lunchtime experience spoiled by being told to "hurry up, we're now closed!" by the manager, while we were...More
