We had been recommended to this restaurant by a friend from high school who has lived with her husband and family on Ischia, for many years. We probably had the best fried calamari we have had anywhere, a freshly caught that day Ischian fish entree, cooked to perfection and a seafood pasta that was out of this world. We were served a crisp white Ischian wined and limoncello, after dinner. This restaurant is by the ferry, just down the street from the Aragona Palace Hotel, where we were staying. It was one of those dinners when all the stars are in alignment. Beautiful night on a beautiful island with beautiful food.

We walked along the row of restaurants at Ischia Porto glimpsing at the menus and were pestered to take a table at most of them. The guy at Purticciull was much more polite and allowed us to read the menu board uninterupted, so he won and we sat down. The seafood and fish on display looked fresh and well presented, not being particularly fond of seafood we chose a simple meal consisting of pizzas, salad and fries. After taking our order the waiter returned with our drinks, bread etc and also a selection of small samplers. An excellent idea so that you can nibble at food you are unsure of. Our food came shortly afterwards and was truely delicious, while watching the world go by around the port. While we were eating we saw other diners chosing fresh fish from the display, which was served up shortly afterwards. Judging by their faces the fish was very nice and the waiter certainly knew how to remove the fish from the bone in one piece! We finished off with tea and coffees and didn't feel pressured into leaving the table, in fact when we asked for the bill the waiter appeared disappointed we were leaving!

Overall a nice meal along side the port and if the other dishes are as nice as ours then Purticcuill has got to be worth a visit.

Larry's Tip - don't get a table near the menu board or you will have people standing over you.

My family dined here in Sep 2012. Some of the best food we had in Ischia. Service was attentive and the prices were reasonable. Highly recommend!

This restaurant is located on Ischia's Port - an area flooded by restaurants.

We originally sat down at a restaurant 5 or 6 down from Purticciull and that restaurant's menu was very lean so we decided to leave...

That was a great decision because we were met by Pino; the owner of this restaurant. Extremely friendly and very proud of his restaurant - one that has been in his family since 1968.

The food was fantastic!
