We celebrated my father's birthday there and it was absolutely amazing. It is so nice to have small places like those in such a tiny island where you can enjoy good food, excellent service and create unforgettable summer experiences.

A place where you can expect to receive the full attention of Italian owner Fabrizio and his dedicated team while chiming to the mellow classical Italian playlist.

Great tastes, with excellent service. Fresh salads and real Italian recipes. The Italian owners (father and 2 sons) make a fantastic job. Well done!

Beautiful restaurant in the heart of Hydra with very Mediterranean/ Italian vibes. Spaghetti alle cozze were very tasty and freshly made as well as the tagliatelle with prawns and calamari and parmigiana. I will strongly recommend this place if you are after a proper unique Italian pasta!

It was all fresh & delicious. Perfect al dente pasta, fish. We finished with tiramisu. A real Italian gem on a Greek island. The service was excellent. Friendly and kind. Very pleased to eat here.

My husband was skeptical about eating at an Italian spot our last night in Hydra, especially since we'd been amazed at all the local cuisine. Il Casta was excellent. We arrived a little after they opened. By the time we were leaving, tables were filling up. We had a couple seafood appetizers, and the main courses were delightful. I chose... More

We went twice last yar when we were here and again last night. My wife had the ravioli with porcini mushrooms, provolone with sage and butter. I had the tagliatelle with buffs,o mozzarella and cherry tomatoes. Both home made pasta and sensational. We will back again this trip.

While on Hydra my wife ate twice at Il Casta. Both times the meals were excellent. Each dish is prepared fresh while you wait. You must try the Emily salad which contains lettuce, watermelon, feta cheese and nuts. Delicious! The setting is very open and tastefully decorated. The restaurant is tucked away on a small side street. Make sure you... More
