We wandered in after dinner one night and had a great evening drinking very affordable wine. We came back for lunch the following day, and the sandwiches are some of the best we've had across Sicily

A walhalla for wine lovers, at least 30 wines by the glass. Alessia knows the wines very well and can give good advice. A large choice in wines by the glass in both white and red. Dishes are quite big, one or at most two form a complete meal. For the wines and the atmosphere it certainly deserves its high... More

I didn't eat in the restaurant, but I expect it is good. I did order take away sandwiches from them a couple of times. Really nice, and really big for 5 euros. Just the thing to pack while going for a hike. Plus, they are open early.

My friend and I visited Lipari today and happened to find this place as we were walking up from the harbour. We ordered a mixed salad and an antipasto plate plus a glass of wine each. The salad was a lovely mix of tuna, capers, olives and tomatoes and the antipasto had something for both meat and non-meat eaters. We... More
