A very pleasant breakfast. Good coffee, good dolci, good views of the Mediterranean, Panarea and Stromboli, and good conversation with Tano. Right on Piazza San Cristoforo.

Well having visited Canneto beach Lipari many times the one constant is the great food, beverages and service at Bar Tano! Tano and his family are so helpful with all visitors and locals on Lipari. My favourites are semifreddo gelato, granitas, great coffee - but basically all light meals in true Eolian style. And free WiFi with a strong signal!... More

The place is humble and you can only seat outside but we suggest to pay your granita and have it by the coastline on the opposite side of the street.

Just had breakfast here with my family. This is probably one of the worst granita I had. Watery and tasteless. The owner also saw we left it fully and didn't even consider to offer us an alternative or compensation. Will never come back and you shouldn't either.

We took a boat around the isle of Lipari and made a stop in Canneto. We spotted this bar and because it is a gelateria as well and we had our kids with us we selected it. Gaetano who runs the bar quickly recognised our Swiss dialect and it turned out he knew Sitzerland quite well. But what about the... More

This bar is not as popular as others in Canneto, and isn't as good as the other bars along the street. There isn't alot on offer at this bar. I wouldn't go again.

SInce 15 year we get here the best icecreams and cappuccino. "The" original bar in Canetto. If you are an Austrian...Ask the always friendy owner what his bar has got to with Christine Nöstlinger ;-) Typical Tripadvisor. The map location in Tripadvisor is horrible wrong (4/2015): Correct is .. maps.google.com/maps?q=38.490770N+14.962087W+(label)&ll=38.490770,14.962087&spn=0.004250,0.011579&t=h&iwloc=A&hl=en
