A nice place with a great view to S'Angelo. The food was good and big portions. The waiter advised us well to not order too much. We had some pasta for starters and zuppa di cozze for main. 2 beers and 2 aperol spritz for 50 € is not bad at all. I would go there again.

We visited after an afternoon in neighbouring Sant'Angelo. We ordered a spaghetti with seafood and salmon ravioli. We were given free starters - deep fried veggies. Our mains arrived and there was easily enough for four people and we like our food. Add a bottle of water and some vino bianco and the bill came to €30. Staff a bit... More

Order a dish for two is more than enough!!!! Located above the Sorgeto Bay (famous for its thermal sources), overlooking the sea and surrounded by vineyards, “da Gisella“ Restaurant consists of a women staff and presents local dishes according to island tradition. Able chef will offer an accurate service. The dishes involves a careful selection of ingredients, thanks to the... More

Very lovely waitress, delicious food and very generous portions. The side dishes of vegetables were great, my family were obsessed with the courgette. It was so good we returning the following evening and having preordered the rabbit, again, very delicious. Desserts were good too! Will definitely return next time we are in Ischia.

Huge portions! I made the mistake of going alone.. Also if you're squeamish don't get the seafood pasta. It was delicious and I loved it but they throw in a couple big tentacles that freaked out the lame American in me.

The seafood is wonderful ex. appetizer with clam. We went to this place another day ordering some meat. What a disappointment! Dry, untasty and rather awful.

This restaurant was local to our fantastic hotel (Residence Baia de Sorgeto) and is minutes away from the natural hot water beach Sorgeto. We cannot recommend it enough, delicious food! You cannot easily spend a lot of money here as it is very well priced and the portions are huge. It is open from 9am until late in the evening... More

This is a proper family restaurant for the local community. They serve a variety of dishes, but the fresh fish is really where it's at. You would struggle to spend much money here, and the bill always shocks us (at how cheap it is!). Perhaps not the best place for a big celebration, but ideal for one of those quick... More
