My husband and I found ourselves with a couple of hours to kill over lunchtime while waiting for our boat to depart for Lipari. We did not have much faith in finding a good meal around the port and ended up choosing U Pignataru... And I'm glad we did. The waiter did not speak a lot of English but he... More

We have eaten there after our visit on Vulcano - we were exhausted and hungry and this restaurant seemed nice and with reasonable price and really close to the port. We tried turistic menu - so we had pasta and meat course with salad and it was great! And really not expensive.
