The story behind Mamma Santina
A Sicilian mother’s passion for hospitality is the origin of Mamma Santina. The main themes of home, family, traditions and family recipes form the basis on which Mamma Santina was founded. It all began many years ago with the strength, dedication and determination of a woman who lovingly set herself the goal of providing hospitality to travellers. This tradition lives on today.
Pool with solarium
The pool at Mamma Santina is surrounded by palm trees and a sun filled Mediterranean garden.
It is a peaceful oasis with a solarium to relax in reading a book or sipping a good glass of Malvasia.
From the earth to the table
Mario’s passion for nature and the large terraced garden with a sea view provide fresh fruits and vegetables for the restaurant at Mamma Santina. They are cultivated in volcanic soil and come from just a few meters away. These ingredients are incredibly rich with natural flavor.
Mamma Santina is doubly committed to the island of Salina. As a hotel and restaurant it aims at respecting the environment and believes this is a responsibility to be shared. An example of this commitment is the use of solar panels to heat water.
The renovation of the hotel was carried out using eco-friendly philosophy while still maintaining the architectural details of a family home.
