We were at Didyme with a group of 10 friends. Everyone left happy: a great service, a friendly atmosphere (the owner explained to us details of the cuisine), and most important a fantastic food. I had a tartar of prawns, fish of the day, and semifredo of pistaccio. All lovely, and particularly a desert was a masterpiece. Add a local wine, and you have a receipe for a super-evening.

Saw the positive rating on Trip Advisor and we decided to give it a go on a whim. Situated a 5 min walk from Santa Marina’s port, the restaurant’s small terrace (yes, do book in advance) has a beautiful view of the sea, and the young owner Carmelo seemed almost apologetic that he couldn’t sit us at the table overlooking the terrace balcony. His genuine warmth in this intro boded well - so different from other experiences which can come across as somewhat fake. The menu was short - always a good sign - and a good mix of meat and fish at reasonable prices. We chose a prawn sashimi starter (simply amazing) and opted for one Primo (cernia ravioli) and Secondo (shrimps). The flavours were simply that good that by the time we got to dessert we had to ask Carmelo about his suppliers. Yep - no surprise; he knows all of the suppliers, sources carefully from Sicily (and that is tough on an island) - everything is fresh and the menu varies accordingly. My husband is Sicilian and simply loved Carmelo’s food knowledge and visible passion for his art. Felt like a Kitchen Confidential Bourdain discovery. We will be back next year. Bravi bravi bravi

Didyme is one of those restaurants you will remember long after your holidays are over. We went there as a couple for dinner. It's located a bit of the main streets of Santa Marina Salina, about 100m behind the car rental. It has a really nice terrace with a view over the harbour and to Lipari.
Carmelo, the owner, was a fantastic host. He described all available meals to us (in English), the provenance of the meat, nice little details like how their Caponata is made etc.
Most importantly, the food was awesome! We had linguine with freshly made eolian pesto, bistecca alla veneziana (a whopping 800g! :-), and caponata. Everything was very tasty and had that little something to it.
Highly recommended and worth every penny.

This is a super fantastic restaurant. Five stars. It is just passed the scooter rental on the hill. You can sit outside and have a view of the ocean. Carmelo is a great owner and recommended plates which were all delicious. The swordfish carpaccio was so fresh, it just melted in your mouth. Primi consisted of ravioli stuffed with grouper and tagliatelle with meat sauce. The secondis were 2 separate plates consisting of stuffed calamari and meatballs seasoned with herbs, from their garden. All so delicious paired with a bottle of wine from the Fenech winery. The desert was chocolate mouse made by Carmelo himself. - decadent. The finish was complimentary Malvasian wine from his family’s vineyard.
A fantastic evening. Carmelo and his chef make a great team.
