In the smallest and evocative port of the Aeolian Islands you find Ginostra, an anfitheatre shaped ancient village in the south-western part of Stromboli island, a place that offers a unique view of the entire archipelago and, on clearer days, of the Calabrian coast and Etna volcano.
Rich in legends, this paradise gives a feeling of pleasant isolation and the taste of living a secluded and distant dimension, that’s why it is called "an island into the island". In this magical atmosphere distant from the typical Aeolian party context, "IL PUNTAZZO" is born today, but perhaps it has always existed.
In the past, Il Puntazzo Restaurant, a very beloved place for the islanders, was much more than a simple tavern. It was a hangout, a place for friendship and solidarity. It is said that to customers who could not pay the bill, the meal was offered in exchange for some service.
"IL PUNTAZZO", name that referers to a kind of white bream typical of the area, will make you live unforgettable moments and rediscover the ancient flavours of traditional local cuisine, revisited in a modern and creative way.
