This restaurant is right at the Port in Lipari and it has a lovely breeze and is great for people watching. The food is amazing and delicious and even though they specialise in fresh fish which was caught that day, they still catered for a vegetarian like myself. They have a good selection of wines and we were guided to... More

Right on the harbour with boats, vans, cars people, kids playing football, people promenading etc etc. Plenty of people watching to do while you wait for the food to arrive! Efficient staff, and good quality of food with lots of flavour in this typical Italian restaurant where understandably the emphasis is on seafood but still options for those not so... More

We stopped in this restaurant with a large group of friends and were seated quickly outside. The service was good, though it was helpful that one of our group spoke Italian, as the menu & staff only spoke Italian. The food was good, but very pricey for this tourist area.

Went to this restaurant on our last evening on Lipari. Because we didn't had a reservation we had to sit outside. But when we told them that it would be to cold for us they brought us a terrace heater. Our hotel has a special agreement with this restaurant and so we asked for the menu. We might choose two...

We were looking for lunch along the dock here in Lipari and settled here at Al Pescatore. The female server was soft spoken but could speak good english although she appreciated my Italian however rudimentary. The owner i presume who came up later to take our order was a tad more gruff but was efficient. He did try to sell... More

After a full morning of hiking, we had a relaxing 2 hour lunch at this wonderful ristorante! Freshest fish one can get as they present the fish to the table for selection prior to cooking. The food was terrific. The wait staff was just the right amount of attentive allowing us time to chill and enjoy our multi course lunch.... More

Definitely consider dining at Al Pescatore for a major meal (as opposed to a snack); you won't be disappointed. We dined here twice, once for a light lunch, then again for a lunch when we had something more serious in mind, specifically fresh fish. According to our experience on both days I might suggest a more sensible choice for a... More

It was great... I love in Sicily how they bring you the fresh caught fish from the day to choose from. Like everywhere in Sicily, English is limited and I was hoping I was getting what I asked for- grilled whole fish with tomatoes and capers.... After 5 minutes and 2 waiters- voila! Everyone is really nice and the view... More

We went on recommendation from our hotel, and were given a 10% discount voucher. Whilst choosing our meal we were shown a tray of lovely looking fresh fish. We decided to go for a sea bream to share between 2. There was no indication of the price, but in our experience we don't normally have to quibble about sharing a... More
