We had a nice meal here. We had to sort inside as we didn't have a reservation which was a shame. We lost the atmosphere of sitting outside. The food and wine were however very good.

We visited here having glanced up the ally and seeing how pretty it looked. Lucky we were early as it was soon packed! The staff were very attentive, cheerful and just lovely, catering to both the English and Italian speakers in our group. The food was gorgeous, both in taste and presentation, especially the tuna and the squid, a must... More

There is not much one can say. If you're in Lipari this is a must. The food, the atmosphere, the service are just top notch. One suggestion, book in advance.

It is a good restaurant al in all, however you pay the location more than food quality. It took long time to be served after being seated. 40 euro each if you go with a starter and main course + low price wine

Nice restaurant up a lane off the main Street so handy to get to but nice and quiet. Good choice of dishes and well cooked food. Tables in the lane but also indoors so no problem if it should rain.

Enjoyed my birthday dinner at this delightful restaurateur tucked away in a little lane. The welcoming entrance is surrounded by flowers and the tables are nicely positioned outside so you can enjoy the evening warmth. Try the tuna for main course which is absolutely delicious. The sword fish is also a speciality. For dessert have the Cassanta which is out... More

The restaurant is situated down a narrow side alley with the tables in 2 rows along one side. We had not booked although it had been recommended to us so were lucky to get one of the few free tables . ( There was plenty of room inside, but nobody seemed to occupy the inside of the restaurant which seemed... More
