The food was great and server was attentive (unusual for Italy). The prices are a bit steep compared to nearby restaurants, but worth it.

We made a last minute reservation on Trip Advisor and were welcomed and quickly seated in a great spot. Our waitress Milania spoke great English and helped us choose a delicious meal. The pizza maker did an amazing job, slaving in front of a giant wood burning stove visible to the dining room. During dinner, there were several different performers.... More

An old style Italian restaurant with lots of charm and character. The food was great and the waiter Guido was v friendly and efficient. A quite dinner for two one evening and a lively party atmosphere with Italian entertainment the next. I would recommend this one. We had some wonderful food here

Great restaurant set just back from the harbour in Forio. Quirky decor, antique kitchenalia. Entertainment some nights but best to book as very popular with the Locals and Italian visitors, bit like old time music hall but great fun. Food is really excellant

We had a conference dinner, so it was a fixed menu and whole restaurant was booked for us, but I think I can still write a review. A positive one - the food was not the best on the island, but still good and the service was perfect. The atmosphere there is a amazing, so I can overlook that some... More

As an Italian I'm highly recommending this restaurant to any tourist visiting Ischia! You can find a great variety of home made dishes, including fresh seafood, pizza and meat. Among my favourite dishes there are: il mosaico di nettuno, (appetizer) and linguine con totani neroni (pasta), both of them made with absolutely delicious seafood. If you are looking for an...

We went recommneded to this place a dinner was good. We were atended by a nice oledr local waiter that did his best to communicate in English. We have our doubts that the Lobster we were shown to be ours in the tank was the one that ended up with the fetuccini as it looked much "slimmer".

We stopped at this restaurant when we were on our way back to our hotel evening. It sounded quite lively so we decided just to pop in for a drink. It was quite busy as they had some entertainment going on, we stated to the waiter that we were just here for a drink, to which he said ok. My... More
