My wife and I were on Panarea for a day trip and happened upon Da Pina towards the end of the lunch service. The staff were welcoming and attentive and we enjoyed magnificent spaghetti with mussels, a simple dish but probably the best seafood pasta we have had - perfectly cooked pasta, fresh ingredients and stunning flavours. A memorable meal.

Truly outstanding classic restaurant which combines the freshest ingredients of highest quality with Eolian tradition & charm. A true Panarea institution. Large, beautifully presented dishes and great attention to detail in table arrangements. Nice living room atmosphere and exquisitely friendly service. But what counts most is the taste: Best ever tuna steak, amazing batutto di gamberi & eggplant gnocchi & other fish & pasta dishes. On the upper price range among Panarea restaurant, but undoubtably the best quality!

Had lunch here, was overall pretty good. Very expensive (110€ - one course each with bottled water!) but I had a HUGE steak which was delicious...(by huge, I mean probably close to if not more than 400g)
Value for money is objective, we enjoy food so don't mind paying for quality, but this may not be the case for students/travelers on a budget.
Ambiance had a very family feel, sat right in front of what seemed like the family living room with Nonna and Nonno chilling out on the computer. Very charming :)

Taken back a little by the price of the menu compared to other restaurants on the island. BUT, food quality and size of meal offer was exceptional. So all in all represented good value for quality and quantity. Could not fault any of the dishes we shared. Intense flavours and freshness of product showed. My Spaghetti was made with fresh tomatoes and was a welcomed change from the mainstream. Well done, and we will be back.

I must say I am quite surprised by the bad reviews written below. It is as if they talked about a completely different restaurant. We had lunch there with my wife and two children and everybody was excited by it. The tuna cake, orata, steak, gamberi pasta, salad, grilled vegetables, desserts, wine. Everything was simply amazing. Service was good, but could be quicker. My only complaint is the price. 231 Euros for a normal family lunch with one bottle of wine is too much. If you don't mind and want to have a top dining experience, go for it!!!
