Excellent Eolian dishes. I expected more of a home-style "casalinga" type of cooking and was pleasantly surprised at how refined the food was. Lovely terraces with a sea view, the prices were very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the seafood which was topnotch

We went here 4 times when we were in Santa Marina. Very consistent good food. Service was good. Nice patio with great view. Prices were reasonable there are much more expensive restaurants in town. The tagliatelle with swordfish was excellent.

Good restaurant with sea view, good wines and interesting dishes, especially the raw fish antipasti. We had the crudo di spada and the insalata di alalunga; both were very good. The main dishes were more standard (pesce spada alla griglia and filetto di ricciola scottata) but OK. Worth trying out!

A bit too expensive for the service they provide. Then, I understand it's my own personal problem not liking fish and capers while vacationing in the Aeolian islands but there were exactly three items on the menu that didn't have them as ingredients so I was stuck with undercooked pasta. My SO had fritto misto and said it was good... More

This is not a 'high end' restaurant but one that offers good honest food. The four of us all enjoyed our meals; all dishes were well-balanced and had good Sicilian flavours. The views are wonderful - which adds to the enjoyment of the dining experience.

Visited last year and the food was great - same again this year. Excellent food, atmosphere, and service. I would highly recommend the spaghetti with vongole and the ocotpus.

Another year another great visit to Salina, another great meal; this time with wives. Last year I said 'This was comparable to the great experiences we had at other restaurants on the island but much better value. Again, attention was excellent and though the out of season menu was not extensive, the range was fair and the food excellent. The... More

Possibly my best dinner in Italy this trip. Everything tasted well balanced, fresh and inspired, including the amazing "dolci". The sweet marinated onions garnishing some main courses were extraordinary. Good wine selection.

I went here with my boyfriend and his sister upon recommendation from the owner of the apartment, where we stayed. To sum up the experience briefly; the waiters/tressses seemed extremely disinterested and very little attentive, forgot to give cutlery etc. and the food was mediocre at its best. Dry fish, possibly frozen and by far, far overpriced. The portion sizes... More
