The food was well cooked and well presented and good sized portions. My choice of veal cooked in Malvasia I did not like though but that's personnel taste not bad food. But the pasta dishes were very good

It was my first náght at Lipari and i did not want to do long search. I ordered antipasto i think marinated sword fish with oranges, which was great and then spaghetti alle vongole, which was averageand little bit salty. Also i could feel the sand there, actually there was one mussle full of sand (or some gray mass). It... More

It was the last night of my holiday and I picked a wonderful location for a relaxing evening meal. I went with the tried and trusted maccheroni alla norma which was marvellous maybe a little too much sauce left over at the end or maybe I could have had more pasta :) The pasta was perfectly cooked and it made...

I ate here a nice but a bit salty Spaghetti alle Vongole. Price of the spaghetti was in average level in Lipari but house white wine was expensive compared to its quality.

Reastaurant very close to the Marina Lunga main harbour, along the main street of the village. I had a pizza and it was pretty good. Prices are in the average of the island.

I enjoyed my meal here in what is a really touristy place. Nice atmosphere and very friendly staff. I chose the fresh pasta dishes that are made in house and was impressed with both (the norma pasta and the Bolognese). My favorite part of the meal though was the caponata appetizer. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling in... More

Our family of five ate at II Galeone three times during our five day stay in Lipari and we were treated like good friends each time. The service was very good and we were always very satisfied with the food. The location is central and we sat under a canopy, which allowed for relaxing dinners. The atmosphere was inviting and...

We had dinner twice in Il Galeone during our week in Lipari. The atmosphere is genuine and simple. Food is very good (had spaghetti allo scoglio and pizza). Special mention to the owner, who is super friendly and helpful and he offers a Malvasia dessert wine at the end of every dinner. Try the pistachios pizza cause it's just amazing!
