...but it's good. Went looking for pizza and walked out of one restaurant as we didn't feel the vibe. Was going to give this place a miss as all the tables seemed to be outside and it was pretty windy, but we stuck out heads in and lo, they had three tables inside. Tiny place, basically it's a pizza takeaway with a bar and some tables. Absolutely no frills. The pizzas are made right there in front of you, from kneading the dough to baking in a stone oven, 15 mins from start to finish. And they taste fantastic. My wife even ate her crust and she never does that. Praise indeed. Very wide selection but they sell nothing else. Every other one was for take out. Total bill for two pizzas and a couple of beers was €24, that's about six quid for a freshly made pizza. You can't miss. Highly recommended.

Went here on the first night in Forio - just wonderful pizza, so fresh.
Nice little place, always seemed busy, and I can see why.
We went a second time later in the week just to see if it beat the first impression.
If I return to Florio, I'd have no hesitation in going back, nothing to complain about at all food wise.

A dead-heat with Bella Napoli for the best pizzas in town. Wood-fired oven, good ingredients, nicely placed in a pleasant and lively pizza.

We stopped for a late lunch - really good pizza, huge plates. Also ordered a side of fries, something we had been missing and a large portion came which we all picked at.

I didn't fancy pizza but was intrigued by one of the customers at a nearby table eating a salad. I ordered Insalata with Mozzarella and Tuna and was brought a huge salad in a bowl similar to the one I use at home for mixing cakes!

The staff were friendly, gracious about our attempts at Italian and happy to converse in English. Toilet facilities were clean but basic, as seems to often be the case on Ischia, I took to carrying around a roll of paper, wipes etc.

Of course, the best bit about La Strambata is the location, on the side of the square in Forio, with the world and his wife walking past, a perfect excuse to sit and people watch and soak up the atmosphere.

We had three large pizzas, one huge salad, a serving of fries, a beer and three mineral waters and the bill came to 39.50 Euros. Great value.

Best pizza I've had in Italy. They make fresh pizza in the middle of the city centre with a nice terrace where everyone walks by. The pizza i had was custom made and only cost me 6€ for a generous portion. I would eat there every time in Forio if I go again.
