Amazing local cuisine! Although travelling to Italy for many years we discovered some tastes, that were new and exciting. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Don't miss the 18 herbs pasta!

Can anyone complain about too much? If you intend to do the Antipasti, Primi and Segundi (?), be ready to roll to your room or down the hill. All the food is great, most of the staff is helpful and some speak English. The Antipasto...More

We were staying at the hotel connected to the restaurant, and we expected a very good meal. However, the food was mainly average, and the fish was dry and not very flavorful.

28 years ago, Mamma Santina, decided to open her kitchen to the public and offer a taste of typical aeolian cuisine and warm hospitality. 28 years down the line, the same recipes, taught to her by her granmothers, have been passed on to the following generations, joined by new ideas.Here in Mamma Santina hospitality, welcoming atmosphere, discrete and professional service are a good complement to our dishes. Our panoramic terrace overlooking the sea and the islands of Lipari, Stromboli and Panarea is the ideal setting for a romantic dinner or a moment to share with family and friends.
