We had a bad experience when we went to visit this restaurant. The pasta vongole served was way too salty, and it had small pieces of shells in it. Not very pleasant at all. When they served the mixed plate of seafood from the grill, the fish filet was burned and when we returned it and asked for the bill they still charged us for the plate. They also added foccacia that we had not asked for, in addition to the usual coperto.

Mi dispiace per la sua recensione ma voglio segnalare che noi non abbimo mai servito focaccia perché la nostra attività e' esclusivamente ristorante e non abbiamo il forno da preparare focaccie…gli spaghetti e' classico servirli con i gusci sinonimo di freschezza del prodotto…e per concludere la nostra griglia e' in pietra lavica una meraviglia della tecnologia visto che ogni anno ci aggiorniamo con nuove attrezzature.la consiglio la prossima volta di accertarsi bene in quale ristorante lei è seduto prima di segnalare recensioni sbagliate .

Nice restaurant located near the port of Forio, along the seaside. While the food was good, we noticed that each one of the four waiters had a different duty assigned to, one bringing the bread, the other the wine etc. However, this made us feel we were not really taken care off. Price for two with wine and two courses, including fish and a steak, and one dessert, was a bit more than € 100, which is not too expensive considering the location.

What a great find! Not only was the food fantastic but the service was great. The owner was charming and so welcoming. We were served fantastic seafood dishes in true Italian style. Top marks to the chef! My husband and I are already planning our next visit to Ischia and can't wait to visit this gem again.
