This was honestly the best surprise during our visit in Ischia. We literally stumbled upon this beautiful cliff-side restaurant after a stroll from the port, not knowing where to eat. We arrived at an odd hour and the restaurant was empty. Not expecting it to be a good sign, but the view and the homey feeling on the patio and in the restaurant welcomed us.

A wonderful woman, presumably the owner and cook, greeted us at the door. She proceeded to serve (and cook) us a truly incredible, fresh and flavorful meal - from eggplant and sardine antipasti to the whole broiled fish and linguine puttanesca. The food was indeed made to order, ingredients as fresh as the sea.

I believe her son was playing in the empty dining room, alongside her mother who was hanging out looking at the bay. It felt like visiting your favorite aunt's house and couldn't have been more perfect. Little to no tourists around here (but again, perhaps the season/time of day) and the quiet was almost deafening, except for the lapping of the water below.

This is a restaurant definitely not to be missed and urge everyone to pay a visit. You probably won't find this on top 10 lists or fancy magazine must-see guides on Ischia, so I'm hesitant to even write this review because it's such an amazing hidden gem.

Small, restaurant at the sea with nice view. Modest interior but food and service was great. Marinated anchovies and grilled fish were perfect, insalata mista was big enough for two including tasty dressing.
Can recommend if you want enjoy your dinner in piecefull place at the seaside.

We are a French & Italian family, so, needless to say we are picky restaurant-wise.
Here you’ll find a warm welcome, excellent food, a wonderful view. And you really (really) feel like home. An impartial jury would grade this place 9.5/10. Go for it « with your eyes closed ».

We came across this seaside restaurant while desperately walking around, hungry after a late ferry. What a treat! The owner took us inside and was so kind, despite not speaking any english (the menu was in Italian, german and russia ... made us realize how spoiled we are normally). She suggested a few things. We heard the word mozzarella and said yes immediately. It was an incredible eggplant dish. We also have the mixed fried fish plate and spaghetti al pomodoro. It was all delicious and cooked with care. Between the homey food and the family being there, the entire experience was very relaxing. At the end she even gave us some free sweet bread! I feel very lucky to have stumbled in there

A very little family-run restaurant, in the kitchen the grandmother cooks delicious traditional dishes... we tried fried fishes and the octopus with tomatoes-sauce everything was super tasty! On the little terrace you can be amused by a great sea view ... the building appears old and run-down but quality of the food, kindness and an amazing view worth a stop in this little suggestive spot
