Il Galeone (dinner)

Il Galeone (dinner)

Since it was the last night of my Sicilian holiday and I decided I wanted to pick a wonderful location for a relaxing evening meal. I stumbled upon Il Galeone which was located on the corner of Corso Vittorio Emanuele and Via Amendola, and looked like a lovely spot to have dinner.  I was early of course so I went for a walk for an hour and took some photos around the place before returning around 730pm in time for dinner.

I went with the tried and trusted maccheroni alla norma which was marvellous but maybe a little too much sauce left over at the end or maybe I could have had more pasta… I avoided the green things on my plate I assume it was salad but it looked pretty enough but I wasn’t about to be tricked into eating my greens.

The pasta was perfectly cooked and it made for an amazing main course meal, I had picked well and I was happy. I was also impressed as they had amazing bread something similar to damper and was luckily enough they had butter…  I really struggle to enjoy bread without some butter as I found out on this trip in Sicily it was very uncommon for places to have butter “burro”.

I ended up ordering dessert which was a lovely chocolate mousse with ice cream centre. I have to say the staff are super friendly and they are very accommodating for their guests and make sure that everything is perfect.

If you are in Lipari I would strongly recommend eating dinner here for sure, don’t worry they do have many more options besides maccheroni alla norma. Thanks for an amazing meal and the dessert was epic!
