On TA recommendations we visited Il Galeone during our recent stay in Lipari. The welcome and service was great, they appear to welcome you trying out your Italian, mine is rubbish, however, always happy to give it a go.

My husband had pasta with Aeolian sauce, which was delicious, capers, olives, anchovies and tomatoes, I had a diavoli pizza, which was really nice, the crust was a little too thick for me and the addition of ricotta made it a little too creamy. Not the fault of the restaurant at all, just not to my taste. As his main course, my husband had tuna, lightly seared and coated in the lightest crumbs. The way it was presented was theatrical, fruits constructed into a sculpture and it was then set alight!

We enjoyed a lovely bottle of local wine and were presented with a very reasonable bill.

Highly recommended.

We had a really delicious lunch there during our day exploring Vulcano and Lipari. The bread is so flavourful (which is not always easy to find) but the pasta was so simple, yet so flavourful (almost wasnted to lick the plate clean). The pasta with Aeolian pesto was packed with flavour (fresh anchovies, garlic and capers) in what could have been a salt overload was instead very subtle and satisfying!

Wonderful family run restaurant with warm and friendly service, a wide menu and delicious food. Really good value. We had both pizza and pasta dishes - both excellent, as was the antipasti. Lovely house wine. If we were staying longer we would definitely return.

My boyfriend and I had a nice evening at „il galeone“ on a thursday evening.
At first we wanted to eat at „l‘officina de cannoli“ but we could not find anything appealing on the menu so we were looking at the menue of the restaurant right next to our first choice. One of the staff came out and invited us in. Normally I do not like to be pushed like that but the lady was very polite and friendly and the menue looked appealing to us.
We were seated in a tent in front of the restaurant with some heating right beside us. It was nicely decorated and quite cosy :-)
The food, we had to pasta dishes and one fish and one meat dish for second course, was very tasty! Especially the pasta was fantastic! :-)
The service was very friendly and polite and helped us with the Italian menue as good as possible

We spend a very nice evening here and would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone staying on Lipari :-)
