“A bit on the expensive side, but worth it for a splurge.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Lovely service, bountiful choices for the menu and a bit on the high side compared to other eateries in town.

“Average”

Food was ok, but we had some doubtness about clean plates.
Agree that it has no atmosphere. Price was ok

“No atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

Good Food. Absolutely no atmosphere. Expensive. Prices on menu differ from those published at street level. Recommended by our friends but not as billed. There are better restaurants and pizzerias in Forio and at far better value. Service impersonal.

We would suggest you choose La Casreccia, Umberto a Mare, La Tinaia or La Strambata first before trying Zi Carmela for your evening meal.

Disappointed.

“charming restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2009

Ate here 4 times in 2 weeks-so we liked it! Cheerful and helpful staff in a relaxed atmosphere-despite noisy scooter traffic. Seafood excellent, and also tortelloni with sunflower and walnuts, tortelloni with pear and cheese. Superb cooking for medium price (by Forio standards). Set on 1st floor, but airy as windows removed.
