“Very good, could be better”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Had dinner here on a hot evening, when the restaurant was crowded, with tables packed close, so it was not completely comfortable. Appetizers of beef carpaccio and mussels were quite good, cheese ravioli and pizza were less successful. Service was efficient but brusque.

“Highly recommended restaurant near the beach”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

My wife, her cousins and a friend visited Ichia this summer for week and were fortunate enough to discover Umberto's early in our trip. We ate there for lunch three times and this was the main meal of our day. We found the pizza and the pasta dishes were very good. The service was wonderful and we were served personally by Umberto himself. His polite quiet spoken manner and his dedication and knowledge of the food he served made for a very charming experience. On one day two of us had the 'Zuppa Di Pesce' an enormous seafood soup/stew sort of like boulabaisse that was truly amazing. Prices are reasonable and the restaurant is conveniently located close to the main beach in the port area on via Roma. The patio is an oasis of shade from which you can watch the passing show to your heart's content. I had several very good meals here.

“pasta not cooked properly”
Reviewed August 1, 2012 via mobile

A cute little restaurant at the start of the main shopping drag in Ischia. The salad we had was okay. But the pasta was a real let down. Not cooked properly and over seasoned. The service was pleasant - but the restaurant lacked atmosphere, mostly due to the overbearing fluorescent lights. More subtle lighting would help create a cosier atmosphere in my view.

“Great for pizza”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Went here a few of times during a week in Ischia, as we had read great reviews about the food. They have a cheap lunch deal and the pizza and salads were very good.

Service was a little off when we went for dinner. It feels very much like a locals bar. There are lots of locals in there (so you know the food is great!) but we waited almost an hour for our food one evening. They forgot we had ordered starters, so just came out with our mains ... so had to take them back into the kitchen, where I think they just sat under a hot plate until we finished our starters :)

On one occasion my friend received her main about 20 mins before my food arrived. We weren't very well attended to at all, and it does feel like they favour the locals and large groups.

My friend has a lasagne one evening and it was distinctly average. Barely any meat and pretty tasteless. Had a nice lunch there - perhaps because the restaurant was much quieter. It gets packed after 9pm for dinner.
