Giampilieri Superiore is a frazione of the comune of Messina in the Province of Messina, Sicily, southern Italy. It stands at an elevation of 75 metres above sea level. At the time of the Istat census of 2001, it had 1800 inhabitants.

The town suffered heavily in the mudslides which devastated the area in 2009.[1] Buried in mud, now it has been rebuilt.
