“La Vecchia Fattoria” by Lo Piccolo Fabrizio is a cheese factory inaugurated in 2008 on the island of Vulcano, in the Aeolian archipelago, becoming the spokesman of a family tradition.
The main purpose is to produce cheeses, ricotta, provola and mozzarella, following the original recipe, using milk produced by goats and cows free to graze on the slopes of the crater, as tradition dictates. The goats are of the vulcanara breed originating in the islands and the products of their milk are a delicacy for the connoisseurs.
The cheeses produced are the “first salt”, simple, seasoned or seasoned (chili, capers, walnuts, olives, dried tomatoes, pistachio rocket, black pepper …). Ricottas can be either fresh or baked, soft or to be grated.
We offer the opportunity to immerse themselves in these delicacies, perhaps at the end of a tiring excursion on the volcano. All this through a visit by Mr. Fabrizio himself who will end in a series of unmissable tastings.
The Roberto Rossello Farm is characterized by work, tradition and love for the land. All this is Sapori Eoliani, a long history of generations, which has its roots in the beautiful Pollara, in Salina.
All the products come from the Green Island, where for a long time the De Lorenzo family has lovingly cultivated its capers and its cucunci, until they became a well-known brand and Slow Food presidium. It is from the passion and dedication of the founder of Sapori Eoliani, Giuseppe De Lorenzo, that the capers of Salina have become a recognized symbol not only of the Green Island, but of the whole archipelago.
The production is varied and ranges from cucunci, capers, peppers, jams, preserves and much more. In May it is possible to attend the gathering of capers, but during the entire spring and summer season the kind Maurizia De Lorenzo will welcome you in her estate for an instructive visit and the tasting of a typical Aeolian lunch.
The Aeolian Islands are defined the islands of wind and fire: thanks to their enchanting sea, to the volcanoes among the most active of the earth, to places rich in myths and legends, to the sublime colors of the black volcanic rocks, to the blue of the sea and of the sky and the green of its vegetation. Therefore these islands cause in the visitor’s heart a fever that bewitches.
Full of houses in pink, light blue and pastel ocher, of remains of ancient civilizations, inebriating aromas of aromatic plants, of a tasty and refined gastronomy, they are visited by thousands of tourists every year.
For those who want to know the history of the area we offer:
The capital of the Archipelago: the populous Lipari. Rich of past history, it boasts an immense and particular archaeological patrimony testified by the remains and furnishings of living presences dating back to 4500 BC. C. up to the Roman epoch of the II sec. d. There will be no lack of your guided tour of the Castle of Lipari, fortress – Aeolian bulwark where it is said that Aeolus had his residence, which contains 5000 years of history in its acropolis; from the original Neolithic village to the Spanish fortress, passing through Greek, Roman, Saracen, Norman and more. A story as old as the time told in the incredible Luigi Bernabò Brea museum.
A visit to the natural baths of San Calogero, active up to the last century and host to the only Mycenaean Tholos outside the Greek borders, is also offered.
The worldly Panarea, destination of countless sailboats and yachts sailing in a cobalt blue sea, offers interesting nature trails that culminate with a visit to the famous Neolithic village of Punta Milazzese.
For those who want to experience the island surrounded by aromatic vegetation
Salina the “superb” is ready to welcome you, so drinking that liqueur wine, nectar of the gods, called Malvasia or simply walking on the island of the “Postman” of the actor Massimo Troisi. In the routes offered you can visit the Saracen Caves, where the population was hiding during pirate raids, or you can stop at the archaeological site of Portella; the remains of an authentic Bronze Age village.
For those wishing to carry out trekking activities, climb up to the volcanoes
We offer you Stromboli and Vulcano, so you will understand why the Aeolian Islands appear on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. In fact, their Strombolian and Vulcan activities have helped to characterize many of the earth’s volcanoes.

Unknown to tourists, in an area difficult to reach the island, on the top of a small mountain lies, in Lipari, a retired doctor who prepares one of the best organic honeys you can taste in your life.
During one of our nature trails you can request to stay in the estate of Dr. Iacolino, amateur beekeeper, who will explain in detail the difficulties and the merits of a unique honey production in the islands: the millefiori of rare black Sicilian bees.
The result is exceptionally sweet, with antioxidant capacity ten times higher than the average and a taste that makes you taste even for non-honey lovers.
Hurry up though, since strictly organic and natural production offers only a few hundred kilograms of product a year and could end soon.

Since 1910, the historic restaurant of Lipari overlooking the splendid acropolis.
Located in the panoramic Piazza del Municipio in Lipari, near the typical Neolithic castle that houses the Archaeological Museum, the restaurant da Filippino is a rustic, quaint and atmospheric setting, an important interpreter of the excellence of Aeolian taste.
Today, after 100 years of history, the Filippino is a modern and functional restaurant, divided into two internal rooms and a large and renewed air-conditioned terrace. The furniture, in dark solid wood and soft colors, is sober and elegant, with antique furniture and a warm fireplace.
The specialties are mainly based on seafood, regional, with dishes based on fresh fish caught daily, together with raw materials of the island, such as vegetables and oils, which enhance the flavor. The restaurant also has an excellent wine cellar with a selection that includes more than 100 labels, in addition to eighty grappa.
Overall, it offers the availability of 250 seats, but the reception and attention to the needs of each customer are always at home: today as in the early twentieth century.
You can have lunch on one of the most beautiful terraces in the world, the eyes lost in the blue of the sea below and enchanted by the puffing Stromboli and, on the tighter days, the superb view of Etna that stands out against the sky with its snowy peak at times until May.
From 21 to midnight you can dine at the soft lights of oil lamps (organic) and, under a dome of stars, enjoy exquisite dishes of a cuisine that is proud to have been perhaps the first to use only bio and biodynamic products from cooperatives that cultivate and produce according to the dictates of the Steinerian school following the course of the seasons, the lunar cycles and the rhythms of the earth.
The cooks do not have the formal air of a hotel school, just like the people who will serve you at the table. Which does not prevent impeccably being looked after, in a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere under a dome made of millions of stars, in the light of the moon that gives romantic visions and shimmers on the water.
The wines have a short but intense list: from the Sicilian winners of various prizes (including abroad) to those from the best wineries in all Italian regions.

Thanks to the services offered by Seaways it is possible to book a guided kayak tour that runs along the coasts of the island allowing you to experience the marine fauna, the seabed and the characteristic fumaroles in a completely new and exciting way.

In a remote area of Stromboli, near the Sciara del Fuoco, it is possible to enjoy the most suggestive dinner of the archipelago.
Dining without even an artificial light but only with a few candles on the table, the complicit moon and the red heat of the Stromboli explosions is possible! The Observatory, a place overlooking the island at the foot of the volcano, offers a wonderful natural spectacle.
The location leaves you speechless, tastes an excellent local wine enjoying the fire shows that the volcano gives to the evocative night atmosphere. From the rest of the island, the Observatory is a place a bit ‘isolated and not easy to reach on foot, nothing removes that, reaching it on foot, the route offers a breathtaking view and the beauty of the panorama makes the long walk valid. For those who want to get rid of the fatigue of the walking path can wait at the junction of Piscità, after calling, the appropriate means that reaches the Observatory.
The smell of wine, fish dishes or the classic and timeless pizza, satisfy every palate.
In Vulcano you can taste the specialties of this typical Aeolian restaurant.
Traditional dishes made with local products of excellent quality.
Considered the best local of the island also for the careful and careful footprint of the service. The very kind owner is flanked by a young smiling and polyglot collaborator.
We recommend pistachio rolls, chopping boards and cunzatu bread, but the rest is also excellent.
