Ischia Restaurant
Price range: $14 - $28
Cuisines: European
Description: Fresh organic ingredients, tasty soups and home-made pasta? The chef's personal attention in an award-winning restaurant? Not an empty claim to fame. Quite simply a full plate of the most delicious food you are likely to come across in Transylvania. Bringing you a subtle taste of the Mediterranean in the company of the resident chef and owner, Papa Dorin. Second helpings are guaranteed and the quirky yet heavenly 'chocolate eggplant' desert is a must!

only 3 tables filled and the restaurant couldn't handle it. The food was served late, some portions never showed up, most were untasty and some not even edible.

Stumbled upon this adorable restaurant when in Brasov recently for the first time with a group of girl friends. I'm a big fan of Italian food but also somebody who loves to sample the local specialities of the region - so this place was perfect as it's a wonderful mix of quality and perfectly cooked Italian (possibly the best food on earth) and Romanian food. I'm also vegetarian and watch what I eat and the owner and chef made me my very own low-fat dish from scratch after asking me what types of flavours I like. This, for me, was fine service at its best. In my limited Italian I later discovered - and wasn’t at all surprised - that he recently came first in a prestigious international cooking contest - check out his trophy on his bar! We were made to feel so welcome, the service was first class, the food - heavenly and you have to check out the tables in the outside area as they contain all different types of pasta under glass in a really tasteful and artistic arrangement. We (and our purses) loved it so much that we went back there two more times during our short stay there. If you go, try the home made 'meloncello' (a liquor made from melons) and aubergine & dark chocolate cake - I simply couldn't believe it contained aubergine - yummy and something I would never have thought worked, but did. Huge selection of wines, all so affordable. Recommended if you want to sit outside with a group of friends or your family or inside for an intimate cosy meal.

Delicious food in a cosy and welcoming environment.

Good variety for the picky-eater and both courses tried were without fault.

A highly recommended stop when in the area.
