Description: After a sunny day at the seaside, La Capanna let you enjoy a wide range of drinks and delicious dishes from the local and the Italian tradition. You can taste the real Pizza Napoletana, with its vivacious tastes, crunchy crust and smoky fragrance as it comes out from our greatly appreciated wood-fired oven.Your stay will be accompanied by enjoyable music of several genres and our nice and pleasant guys.We always serve you without delays our gorgeous and affordable meals, so you can get fully satisfied and bring us with you in your hearts and around the world. In the evening, the restaurant changes its dress and gets a warmer and more romantic ambience. Among torch-lights, magic candles and soft music, you will admire the beatiful sea at night, lighted up by the lighthouse of Punta Imperatore, and a sky full of stars.Romanticism at its best!FREE WIFI !!!

We visited this restaurant on our only night out of the resort. It was lovely and secluded although we're lucky we didn't have anyone who struggled to walk as we didn't appreciate the steps we'd have to go down (and back up) to get there.
Pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We were given a table right at the edge and had a beautiful sunset view.
The meal was lovely (and the portions were huge!).
We'd definitely return.

this restaurant involved walking down about 70 steep steps from the main road, and then a steep slope. But, it is well worth the walk, to enjoy the fabulous meals served up by Antonio and his staff. Everything fresh and super sea food

This place is just extraordinary!
Now we cannot imagine our vacation on Ischia without it.
It's not just food! Wonderful family restaurant owners add a little magic to the evening meal!
Very romantic, from it do not want to leave, very good atmosphere and great views.
And the food is just amazing!
You will be satisfied with any dish!
Rabbit is very tasty! Seafood all prepared fresh and wonderful! Tiramisu - the best in Italy.
The restaurant is always full, the atmosphere of the real Italy - try to book a table in advance.
Definitely worth a visit!
This is one of the attractions of the beautiful Ischia.
Grazie, grazie, grazie !!!
La Capanna-sei sempre nei nostri cuori!
Best regards,
Mikhail and Elena.

.The restaurant is located in a rather unassuming part of town and located down some steps that’s quite easy to miss. However, the interior of the restaurant will remind patrons of a minimalist, Cast Away-esque tropical paradise. The internal decor allows the simplistic beauty of the food to really shine, though beauty isn’t the only thing bringing Ischia locals and tourists to La Capanna. The restaurant buzzed with excited energy and was comfortably full with seemingly satisfied patrons.
We started with a mixed dish appetizer that consisted of bruschetta, eggplant with cheese , fried zucchini flower, and pizza bread. For our main course the children had gnocchi presented in a delightful pizza bread bowl. I had the steak that was cooked to perfection and melted in my mouth like butter. We also had the Scialatiello with sea food. The food was all well presented and tasteful. For desert I recommend the Tiramisu, its quite possibly one the best tiramisu you will ever taste!
Though I would love to be selfish and keep La Capanna all to myself, the work of the staff is too good to stay hidden for long. There’s no doubt a table at La Capanna will quickly become the hottest reservation in town.
