“very disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

This is the restaurant in Ischia Porte recommended in all the guide books. But our meal there was very disappointing. The salad was particularly bad - over salted to the point of being inedible and dripping in oil. The scallopini was tough, oily and over seasoned, and the pizza mediocre. It felt they were catering to the tourists, and not focussing on the most important thing: the food.

“grazie, Amedeo!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

Very nice place with a personal attention to everyone! Had dinner there almost every evening. We even did not use a menu as the chief could offer almost whatever you like to eat. We even had a full dinner made from the fish which my daughter had caught earlier that day. Amedeo, the owner and Juana, his waitress, are a very friendly people and a great team. Pasta di mare , risotto and fresh fish of the day are the best choice there.

“Portside delights at just the right price! La dolce vita indeed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Ischia Porto has dozens of restaurants to choose from....many are very expensive and for no good reason...we chose La Pantera Rosa from our Lonely Planet guide..and it was better than expected. Sit outside under the awning and watch boats dock, people stroll by and be charmed by the service. The dapper owner speaks perfect English and all the staff we pleasant and helpful. The kitchen is very clean, you can watch them prepare food and enjoy the pizza oven.

We ate here 5 times in a 7 day trip and then again on a return to Ischia two years ago! I recommend the linguine with little clams, calamari, and the veal if you eat it...was delicious and only 9 euros! Wood fired pizzas are huge & excellent! A meal with wine, or beer starter main course and dessert ( if you can fit it in!) for two people was barely 35 euros total!!

Very big menu, everything is cooked to order and fresh! Terrace can accommodate large groups, we saw 22 people disembark from a stylish sailboat and eat dinner very merrily.

“Great food and very great hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

It was so nice we went twice in two days. Each time we went my hsuband and I had antipasta and then a main dish and wine and water. Amazing octopus salad, spaghetti carbonera, gamberini, carne and more. the owner was so hospitable and demonstrated his language skills and shared some island stories and anecdotes with us both. He was especially pleased to see us the second time and we cant wait to return to the lovely Ischia and La Pantera Rose again
