Wow! What a meal. Truly exceptional and so very different in terms of atmosphere and service. We stumbled across this place and were drawn by the family-run signings. It is an utter gem in Ischia. The produce is sourced from a local farm, the family's own. Wine, too. We shared croquettes and mozzarella breads to begin: beautiful. Mains: a fresh and zesty clam linguine with yellow tomatoes. My partner enjoyed a chicken Caesar salad that was supremely tasty and simple. No fuss here. Just flavour- and excellent service. Friendly and informative. We would not hesitate to return.

While visiting Forio, my wife and I and three friends stopped in here for an early dinner. After perusing the daily specials written on the door and talking to the friendly waiter we decided we would start with some shared appetizers, sparking water and local wine. We ordered three appetizers and the kitchen staff separated them onto five small plates. They looked and tasted so good.

For our main course we had the rabbit specialty and one person had a burger. The lamb was excellent and the local wine selected by the waiter was a very good accompaniment to the dinner. Well, maybe not the burger.

What helped make the dinner so special was that the waiter took the time to describe each dish and tell us about the locally sourced ingredients.

I will definitely eat there next time I'm in Forio.

We visited here mid winter.
~Nice glowing gas fire.
~Excellent wine selection.
~Really lovely food.
~The staff - particularly Nico are friendly and helpful - and speak much better English than my Italian!
A great way to start an evening for an Aperitif- and we ended up staying all evening. Did I mention that the food is delicious as well!!!

We came here for our last night in Forio, after some varying degrees of quality meals out. This was something different, family-run with much of the produce coming from their own farm. For starters we had the grilled vegetables (from the farm) and the potato croquettes, then the gnocchi and seafood salad. The portions are, in a word, huge! We still managed to share a dessert though, after an extended break. Together with their own wine, it was all delicious and we wished we had tried it earlier in our trip. However we were happy to experience it once at least, it really deserves a higher rating and we wish them all the best for the future.

We went there only 2 nights ago, and the menu...typically Italian style food, is incredible! It was perfectly cooked and accompanied by wine made by themselves on their farm. Absolutely exquisite and amazing service. Really enjoyable experience and one of my best evenings on the Island. 2 very happy customers!!
