I visited this town when it was the off season. I specifically had hoped to avoid the crowds. When I came to each of the Aolian Islands I hired a taxi to spend a half day showing me around. I was so please and the people were so kind and proud to show off the beautiful islands. In Santa Marina... More

Portobello is at the Port. We noticed it even more so when we got off the ferry because they were hosting a wedding reception that night. Also, my sister and I learned on another Italian island a couple of years ago that Port restaurants can also be very classy and superb! We had a wonderfully grilled, very fresh swordfish flavored...

Some good seafood options for lunch, complemented with Aperol and Campari Spritz helped a lazy afternoon. Service was friendly. Very handy to the town center and the ferry.

Being hungry upon arrival in Salina we didn't expect much from the closest place to the port. We were wrong. The food and service were great! They even provided a 10% discount on the entire bill. So we went back for our final dinner in Salina and again, excellent, friendly service, great pasta, seafood and desserts. Our favourite spot in... More

Setting and service were excellent. All of our food was very good with the exception that y wife ordered a steak and it was both tough and full of gristle which was disappointing for an otherwise nice experience. Recommendation - avoid meat when visiting the Aeolian Islands - stick with pasta and seafood.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy... This restaurant was the most incredible experience. Comfortably located in near the water, this place had a great view and even better food. The polpo carpaccio was so delicate with a warm olive oil and light mint flavor. The pasta was simple but perfect. A light chili oil with cheery tomatoes and garlic basil.. Each bite was... More

A must if you are after authentic food cooked as you prefer it (also outside the menu). The stunning view and nice location does not impair the review....Attendant staff and good service throughout.

This is a tourist trap when you can't go anywhere else in Salina. Location is nice but once you are there, you just wish you weren't here and would prefer to go to the other place where you were yesterday! Service is a disaster!
