The ante paste dishes were absolutely out of this world - simply fantastic. amazing seas food dishes which you do not normally come across, even in Ischia. The service was excellent and the ambiance perfect. Can't wait to go back to La Romantica on our next visit.

Had a very decent dinner outside at this friendly restaurant along the port at Forio. I had a massive plate of fried fish, which probably wasn't the healthiest item on the menu, but had lovely little whitebait, yummy calamari, various flat fish I didn't recognise, and some chunky great prawns. Washed down with a bottle of the Ischian house white.... More

Setting is beautiful across from the Forio port. Tables are beautifully laid and the restaurant has a romantic feel about it. The waiters were professional and all spoke English. The food was scrumptious in particular the rissoto with seafood. We enjoyed it so much that we are going again.

We got a nice table outside, (even so it was far from being in level. ) the service was very kind and was really explaining the different dishes. Everybody (we were 4 ) like it's dish, going from pasta over fish to meat. The deserts were also very good. The 5th point was lost because sometkmes the service was taking... More

There were no tables outside so we had to sit inside. This meant we were next to the excellent piano player who played a variety of songs - it was very relaxing. The menu wasn't a huge variety and a lot was very expensive but the food was good.

My husband and I were in Ischia for a week. We stopped one night in La Romantica. It was lovely. A great spot - sitting across a marina with locals and their families walking by. The waiter was very helpful with local wine choices. We both ordered spaghetti with seafood and it was very fresh. After dinner, we got limoncello... More

Lovely little restaurant with a good view of the marina in Forio. Small but good menu and wine list. All very reasonably priced for the excellent quality . But be warned the staff do not speak English, however you can be understood with a bit of effort.
