Well, I liked it so much that I returned every evening of my 5-day trip! The ambiance, the location on the seafront, the friendly staff and most of all the delicious seafood cooked by the talented chef and his team impressed me quite substantially. The fact that the locals come here for a special treat is quite indicative. Dining alone,... More

We had lunch here, recommended by our taxi driver and were pleasantly surprised; my wife had a first rate insalate de mare, and I had a pasta and mussels dish that was delicious, perfectly prepared. The service was great, and the prices reasonable. I would definitely recommend it for lunch; dinner may be different, but lunch was perfect.

In a nice location, La Romantica has very good food and an amazing service. The staff, in particular the owner, is attentive and friendly with the customer, you really feel spoiled! Fish is fresh and tasty, wine is good, and price is adequate. Highly recommended to anyone!

We had a bad experience when we went to visit this restaurant. The pasta vongole served was way too salty, and it had small pieces of shells in it. Not very pleasant at all. When they served the mixed plate of seafood from the grill, the fish filet was burned and when we returned it and asked for the bill... More

Nice restaurant located near the port of Forio, along the seaside. While the food was good, we noticed that each one of the four waiters had a different duty assigned to, one bringing the bread, the other the wine etc. However, this made us feel we were not really taken care off. Price for two with wine and two courses,... More

What a great find! Not only was the food fantastic but the service was great. The owner was charming and so welcoming. We were served fantastic seafood dishes in true Italian style. Top marks to the chef! My husband and I are already planning our next visit to Ischia and can't wait to visit this gem again.
