Nice service, excellent food and fair prices. Don't stop at the restaurant at the sea side, but walk up through the city streets and get a much better experience at the same price. Place to go when at Lipari

I ate at Filippone's 12 months ago and it was remiss of me not to write a review. We were childhood friends where cooking was always part of the Bernardi family. This family has retained the true culture of Aeolian cooking. A must to go whilst in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. Thank you Antonio and... More

Food, wine, coffee, service and advice were all top-notch. Our waiter was friendly, patient, knowledgeable and attentive. His suggestions for courses and wines were spot-on. The seafood dishes and caponata/salads were delicious as were the desserts (especially the tartufo). The wine advice (a fresh Fenech table Malvasia) was perfect. Our best meal in the islands so far.

We had just hiked up the Volcano and were in Lipari fro another couple of hours. We were told that this was the best and we were nervous to go into a nice restaurant in our shorts and hiking boots. But it they were very accommodating. My pasta Fillippino was outstanding. the fish is practically pulled out of the water... More

Decor, staff and items on the menu are quite old, it all has the late 80s feel to it. The food was nice, but not spectacular. Prices are way too high for the overall quality. The wine list is interesting and quite rich.

Very traditional fish restaurant behind the fortress in town. Highly recommend you reserve a table.. we saw people being turned away. The waiter was wonderful.. subtle, funny and always there when you needed him. He was very helpful with the selection of a fresh fish to choose for two, and the wine as well.

Elegant traditional restaurant. If you rub well your waiter you will be up to a great experience of flavors and tastes and will be taken on a grand tour of the excellence in food the eolie islands and Sicily in general have to offer. Do not miss this white glove experience and its details such as being offered three distinct... More

A nice location, great service and quality food. Formal food lacking some imagination. Reasonable price, and pleasant surroundings. Certainly worth a try.

Actually we wanted to go to another place but it was fully booked. It's a well known restaurant and the menu is a classic of local specialties. The service is good routine with little enthusiasm but the place is nice, the food is good and prices are reasonable .
