This is a very special restaurant, well worth searching out but a happy discovery on a hot day to escape shopping in the main road at the bottom of the alley. We were very fortunate to be given a cookery demonstration by the head chef before lunch so we knew what to expect but not quite how delicious. Although the... More

I am Italian, therefore very demanding and critic when it comes to food but I can guarantee in this place they know what they are doing with their fish!! I must say I wasn't impressed by the service: it took them ages to even take our order and then ages to bring our food. But when the food came I... More

Best Sicilian red shrimps I have ever had!!!!!! Words can't express how much I am missing the gigantic fresh raw shrimps there. I went to the famous wet market in Palermo in the later part of the trip to look for big fresh ones but there was none! This place is a MUST-TRY if you love seafood and if you're... More

This restaurant was advised to us by a lovely aged Liparian woman whom we talked to in the streets of Lipari. When we arrived with our 2 children ( 7 and 9 ) we were very welcome, despite this is not a typical "tourist menu"-restaurant. The menu was diverse but not to large ( cfr. Freshness ), and the wine... More

Deep down a side laneway at the Marina Lungo end of Via Emanuele it is easy to miss or ignore L'Anfora. You shouldn't. The al fresco dining is cool and shaded and the food very good local fare with especially good pasta. Even by Sicilian standards.

The display of fresh fish for preparation that evening was. impressive. Keep in mind that the price is based on the weight of the fish (for Americans, 100 grammes = 1/10 kilogramme which equals a lot of fish so don't be surprised by a price of 40 to 60 Euros for the fish). The mixed grill of fish I had... More

One with fish the other vegetarian. The quality of these dishes was very high, I fact the best we have tasted so far in 9 days in Sicily. We followed with... More

Expensive, but worth it if you love fresh fish and can afford it. Lovely indoor setting (outdoor seating is in an alley). We had the grouper "queen of the sea" they call it. They served a ricotta souffle as appetizer that was super. Was tasty, perfectly cooked, and prepared at our table. Service was very good. Worthy of fine dining... More

This is a restaurant up a side alley so it was very quiet tonight. The food was perfect and the staff could not have been more helpful. The building design and decor are interesting . We have had some good meals this holiday - this one is right there at the top.
