One of the craziest lunches I've ever had, and quite possibly the most entertaining.

We were greeted with Prosecco, and served an abundance of delicious food (lots of fresh seafood) for an amazing value for money.

Sitting on top of the hill, looking out over the ocean, it was quite stunning.

Music playing in preparation for the evening entertainment, the owners daughter sang a selection of tunes and we played along on tambourines, marracas, bongos....

A truly wonderful experience never to be forgotten.

My boyfriend and I just returned from a Lovely Vacation at this AMAZING resort/villas/restaurant. Ischia Island is probably one of the prettiest places we've ever been too. PARADISE! It is three times the size of its neighboring islands such as Capri which is filled with tourist and is highly over priced. Being a much bigger island there is much more things to do and see. Upon arrival you are greeted with a delightful glass of sparkling wine (with peaches in it) which seems to be their signature trait. I rarely remember my glass ever being empty as the generosity amongst this family owned business is 5 star plus! This resort also has a 360* panoramic view in which you can see the Mediterranean Ocean from all angles. SPECTACULAR!

I highly recommend eating at the restaurant located right on the premise. It is such a quaint and convenient location and the atmosphere is what made it the best experiences we have ever had. The FOOD here is astounding; simply the best in its class! Chef Gianni is a legend! Pasta dishes made in every way possible, along with the freshest seafood and the cutest atmosphere. If you are looking for the REAL authenticity of Italy; you have chosen the right place. Throughout dinner you are serenaded by Fernando; the musician on site. His voice is such a delight to listen too. However, the HIGHLIGHT of this restaurant is the singing and dancing the whole staff break into. It becomes VERY INTERACTIVE and makes you feel like home. You got tambourines, bells, instruments, music, tarantella's (traditional Italian music), wine, limoncello, café, the whole nine-yards of an unforgettable experience!! *If you have facebook I highly recommend looking at the videos - Ristorante Neptunus Via Lo Russo.

Ristorante Neptunus is 5++

SUNSET: We have been fortunate enough to travel to many beautiful places in the world and if your lucky enough to stay here you will encounter the most beautiful, picturesque sunset unimaginable! :)

~Thank you Neptunus for all your generous hospitality and great service! Bacio.

We had an enoyable stay with great seafood dishes (the octopus pre course is just as tender as butter, and amazingly good). Also make sure to check out the Paccheri with Seafood of the day. Great View on top of all that!

The best things about this restaurant are:
- the location: charming
- the service: our waitress was funny and enjoying her work
The food was nice, but nothing special. Comparing it to the other restaurants we went, we found our meal somewhat too simple.

Our driver recommended this restaurant. The view and entry to the balcony is great. A lunch time retreat. On discussion with our waitress we decided on a fish dish. We queried the price TWICE and ordered. The food was good, appetizer, the fish dish, and a 1/2 ltr of wine. On getting the bill, we were SHOCKED that the fish dish was 2 1/2 x the price quoted. The manager said we misunderstood. We asked TWICE! There was no adjudication to the bill, the restaurant backed the waitress.
A word of warning you may have to get the price in writing for confirmation.
I am not a complainer and can take my lumps, but wow... No negotiating when a big complaint like this.
We will not return.

Siamo molto dispiaciuti per l'accaduto, effettivamente la cameriera ha sbagliato confondendo eighteen con eighty , pero' i signori hanno letto il menu' dove e' perfettamente specificato il prezzo del pesce per 100 grammi, per cui una volta comunicato il peso del pesce che i signori hanno scelto menu' alla mano il conto e' presto fatto e anche se c'e' un errore di pronuncia si puo' sospettare che una spigola fresca di circa un chilo e mezzo non possa costare diciotto euro, come ho gia detto siamo dispiaciuti per il misunderstanding e ci scusiamo ancora ma omettere di aver letto il menu' da parte dei signori lo trovo alquanto scorretto .
