"Incredible hotel in the vineyards with see view facing Lipari"
We enjoyed our stay and the hotel and its staff fully met our expectations. From the pick-up shuttle at the port when we arrived, the welcome at the reception, the arrival in our room, the bar & restaurant and all the staff, everything was perfect. The location of the resort and its concept are amazing. I found combining wine and gastronomy business with Luxury hotellery is a very smart idea. The view from our room on the sea and Lipari is incredible, the style, comfort and decoration of the resort is very classy and nice, and above all we enjoyed the gardens, the plants, the swimming pool and the vineyards surrounding us. Final but not least, the breakfast and the wines (own production) are perfect.
This is a beautiful resort and worth the drive and ferry to get here (I do recommend at least 3 nights though). The location is is about 2 miles from the little town (they offer a free shuttle that showed up when the ferry arrived), and located in a very pretty vineyard. The views around the property are fantastic! The restaurant is also superb and the service is professional and friendly. It's a relaxing and fairly quiet resort which we loved (we stayed in early Sept. and there were no kids except 1 baby). I recommend room #9 which had a large bathroom with huge tub and an incredible view.
"Wonderful Lunch Incredible Setting"
The food is very simple but perfect. We had a perfect pasta with fresh and sun dried tomatoes. We also enjoyed a fresh tuna club sandwich and a quinoa salad with arugula, pine nuts and Mazzaro shrimp. The cattaratto and perri cone wines were superb. The staff is attentive, friendly and very helpful. This is hospitality at it's finest!
"An Aeolian pearl of a restaurant "
This is a review solely in respect of the restaurant. The restaurant sits in a stunning location perched above the sea among their vineyard and next to a traditional lighthouse. The restaurant is an open terrace affair with modern lines. Suffice to say, location is just spectacular. I was with a group of friends and went with the four course tasting menu and the wine pairings. The starter and the second course are fixed, and your main course is a choice in our case between fish, here swordfish, and meat, pork belly. The dessert on the menu was a choice between two, though in fact they allowed to choose openly from the five other desserts on the a la carte menu. Wow!!!! The food is as good or better than the location. In fact, as you do with most high end restaurants you end up with two or three extras, the chefs complimentary amuse-bouche, a pre dessert and a selection of truffles and other delicacies at the end of the meal. Service is discreet but effective, the sommelier informative and very knowledgeable with the descriptions, tastes and various questions asked in respect of the wine pairings bought to us. The wines themselves were top notch. It's not cheap but then not expensive for what you get, location, quality of food and service, with the wine pairing it was a little over a hundred euros each. All in all this is a great food heaven, whether as a group or for a romantic meal. The food, taste and quality is sublime. It has the look, feel, quality of a highly rated Michellin starred restaurant. Go and enjoy, you won't be disappointed...
"This may be your most amazing hotel experience yet..."
Everything. This never happens, I know, but it kind of did ! The Capofaro Resort is heaven on earth... We came here for one week on our honeymoon and we could not be happier with our choice. It was literally perfect ! The location is absolutely exceptional, calm, green, quiet, in the middle of the vineyards, wild flowers, cactusses, and fresh herbes (from the garden straight to your plate !). The service was beyond perfect, everyone was adorable, doing everything in their power to make us happy and comfortable ! Thank you !!!! The seaview is to die for, the pool is perfect... what more can I say ' One last thing, not unimportant, the food in the hotel restaurant is some of the best we have ever had. Chef Ludovico (former Noma !!) is a true artist ! He will make you understand his love for his island, his fresh fruits, vegetables and fish (all home grown), wauw ! We ended up eating at the place every day for lunch and dinner, because there's no way you'll find better ! A true Michelin star restaurant experience. Promise ! Thank you for making our honeymoon memorable :)
