“Quite a distance from the harbour / port of Vulcano”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

We chanced upon this restaurant after renting a car to drive around the island. At the southern tip of the island is a beach (named the "ultimo paradiso"), 100 metres up the road the restaurant. We were the only guests. The owner/cook advised on antipasti and fish; we chose antipasti (one plate for two, uno per due) and pasta. The antipasti were enough for 4 people, and very good (especially the fish antipasti). The pasta equally excellent with a hint of herbs (basil, mint), walnuts, almonds, parmesan cheese, but we only managed some after all the antipasti.
There was no set menu, and no set price, and we ended up paying 70 Euros including local wine and coffee.
Food very good, location a problem, as you have to pay some 50 Euros to hire a car or take a taxi, unless you happen to be travelling around the island anyway. Negative: no menu with prices. The owner mentioned they used to be open all year round, but will be closed from now on in the winter months.
