Back after one year we are extremely well impressed by the quality of this restaurant. Already at high standard levels last year it evolved to deliver even better this time. Lots of new dishes on the menu (octopus gazpacho being my favourite) and extremely professional...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.

Ooops....! Nice surprise in spring 2017 in a restaurant we like to frequent whenever we are on the island. Mario, the chef, decided to make some new dishes. We had the luck to be among the first to try them. While staying true to his...More

Very good service & fantastic food. Highly recommend!!! Very pretty view, little far from Marina, but walk is worth it.

As well as fresh and simple italian produce, this is one of the few restaurants we went to on the Aeolian Islands which added some modern flair to the cooking, which created a delicious outcome. Pricing is relatively good (upper end for Salina), and the...More

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.
