We visited this restaurant a few times on our break. The two guys running the show are helpful, friendly and generous with their explanations. The food is good and they will try and amend things to suit you. It is a relaxed atmosphere and set in comfortable surroundings. I would recommend giving this restaurant a try!

We went to this restaurant because it was close to our hotel and it was raining. We're not impressed with food at all. Pasta porcini was watery and there was a too many of stems not cups parts, steak was chewy we couldn't even finish it. The good thing I can say about the staff - they were friendly.

I first ate here 6 years ago with my family. Having returned to ischia this time with my partner, we decided to head across for lunch. An absolutely delicious meal. We had the melanzane (yummy), the pasta with tomatoes (cooked perfectly) and the fish of the day, which was perfetto. The staff were friendly and helpful and I'm sure I... More

This restaurant is in an ideal location overlooking the pretty main square, it looks lovely but that's where it ended for us. On arrival at this restaurant, when we first sat down I had thought we were next to a drain or something and kept getting very unpleasant wafts. I ordered a steak, asking for it to be medium to...

Great food and service. Good prices given the location. Sit out on the front patio to watch the kids play on the square. Insalata di Mare was excellent.

Food wasn't anything special at all but what maybe this evening memorable was the arrogance of the manager and the thousand mosquitos for which we couldn't wait to get the check and leave! This was the only blah meal we had in Ischia (we were there for a week and had amazing food!) and ironically, the most expensive. Should change... More

Had a lovely dinner here. But restaurants in Italy, especially this one, charge premium prices for fish fish...and usually you do not see a price ahead of time. A bit of a scam. Fish are more difficult to catch in Italy now....but local fish are available....and you will pay seriously. 'Orato' here was almost $100.00 US.

This restaurant, is excellent, food fabulous! Good menu choice, price reasonable. Staff professional and friendly. You may have to reserve table, as can get very busy.

We arrived at this restaurant which was reasonably empty. My wife ordered courgette flowers with ricotta cheese I had cheese tart with vegetables followed by steak for my wife and prawns for myself. The courgette dish was fine but a little bland. The cheese dish consisted of thick baked lumps of cheese with aubergine and onions baked within it. Very... More
