“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

It's a beautiful restaurant, and the food was terrific. You really can't get any more authentic Italian than Il Capannaccio. Great for a scenic, relaxing dinner after a long day walking around or lounging at the beach. I went with a group of friends which was a lot of fun, and I would definitely recommend bringing a hot date for a romantic dinner. Great service, delicious food, and for price it really wasn't bad at all. Overall, I loved the vibe at Il Capannaccio, and I would recommend it to anyone traveling into Ischia.

“Great price, great environment, great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

For an American family who has never been to Europe let alone Italy before, we didn't know what to expect during our trip. After about a week traveling the main land, we ended up on the island of Ischia which led us to Il Capannaccio as recommended by both the hotel and locals. The environment inside the restaurant(or outside if you choose) is an amazing experience. The Capannaccio gives off an old fashioned and simplistic scenery decorated with numerous black and white photos, grapes growing overhead, and classic italian music in the background. From pizza or rabbit to eggplant parmesan, Il Capannaccio has an excellent variety of food accommodated by amazing service from the Salemmo family. They truly appreciate the fact you are there with them and are absolutely not afraid to engage in conversation. We dined in style like true Italians! I would recommend anyone this restaurant if they are looking for a 100% Italian experience FAMILY STYLE !

“Terrific food, great atmosphere, friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

We spent five days on the island and wanted to experience everthing from the beaches, spas, shopping and restaurants.. Rather that always stay along the main drag by the water, Hotel Carolinal recommended Il Capannaccio. A quick cab ride later we were up the hill a bit and within the confines of the restaurant. They have a rustic atmosphere in an open setting, with lemons and grapes growing on the overhead trellies. The menu had much variety, but we just asked them to make their speciall for us and provide the local wine. WOW, between Candita the host and Chef Carmine, we got the treat of our lifetime. Fresh bruschetta (tomato and bean). rolled eggplant, marinated peppers with cheese, mozzarella with tomato and basil, pizza margherita, spaghetti arrabiatti, ,gnocchi, the rabbit ischia style topped with with a variety of fresh fruit and expresso. WOW!
