The menu had only main dishes priced from €23-30, as well as a very expensive degustation menu. We chose one pasta dish and rabbit, expecting that would be all we would receive. We were advised to order some potatoes and vegetables as well, which were not on the menu, and we were glad we did so. Unexpectedly, we received several... More

The food and drinks here - we had a couple of cocktails and a five-course tasting menu - were good as befits the price range. The experience however was not great. We had no reservation and the restaurant was half empty, but we were told that it was fully booked that night and we could only sit in the bar... More

The ambiance and food here are wonderful, however, if your looking for traditional sicilian food you won't find it here. Romantic setting for drinks and dinner.

My wife and I stumbled upon this restaurant while staying on the Islands for a couple of days. You need to make a reservation beforehand. We were impressed with the service and outdoor atmosphere with lovely, relaxing music. Our sommelier picked out an excellent wine from the islands that paired perfectly with our dishes. For southern Italy and the islands... More

You get what you pay for and this hotel is true 'Mr and Mrs Smith' quality. Immaculate, friendly - Italian style-, attention to detail, stunning views (plus a roof top) and infinity pool facing Stromboli. If a little pretentious, and unapologetic when things go wrong ( taxi late and waiting for checkout bill). A special treat for 2 nights worth... More

We visited this restaurant for a special meal during our holiday and were not disappointed. The staff were excellent in their service. Whilst the bill was slightly expensive $105 Euros for the two of us, we felt that it was worth every euro as every course chosen was exquisite, not to forget the "little presents" appetisers, chocolates and malvasia. I... More

We had heard the Signum was a great restaurant but it is clear it depends what you choose. It didn't start well by the aggressive lightbulbs overhead but it was clear it was not an unusual request to ask them to remove the lightbulbs from the overhead lights above or table. I had a delicious starter of mixed raw fish.... More

Not a cheap place to eat, but excellent food and outstanding service. We had a set menu, which was perfect for us and every course was delicious. The sommelier was very knowledgeable but also friendly and relaxed, and recommended a great local wine which was within our price-bracket. Highly recommended for a special occasion.

Six of us had the 7 course tasting lunch with accompanying wine - and ate on the terrace overlooking the islands. The food, fish in the main, was excellent and the wine flowed without a pause. Further bottles were opened readily when particularly good wines disappeared particularly quickly. In the middle of it all, Sergio came and announced with a... More
