Description: Welcome to "O 'Pignattello". It is not only a restaurant, a physical site, but a place of the soul. A journey to discover local stories, flavors founded and handed, made up with wisdom and simplicity. Why this name, Pignattello? It is the way we use here, on Ischia Island, to call the "Pignatta", the terracotta pot we use to cook the dishes of our tradition. This is precisely the heart of our proposal: to offer an experience able to combine tradition and innovation, local ingredients of the highest quality that tell you about a dynamic island projected towards the future but able to jealously guard the knowledge of its own fathers. With our selected wine list and a welcoming and discreet service, we will be happy to give you an unforgettable evening.

Reviewed June 17, 2012

Just got back from Pignattello and dinner was so good I felt obliged to write a review. One of the best dinners of our trip (particularly recommend the "Meat (Steak) Tartare" and the aubergine,tomato & mozzarella starter. Friendly service and great place to sit and enjoy a warm evening. Loved it. Thanks!

“Great lunch”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

We were just looking for a light lunch and were promised we were in the right place - we certainly were, as it turns out! Everything delicious and made express, quality excellent, very fresh and tasty, all fish. We'll be sure to go back, they made us feel special and let us linger. House wine was perfect too!

“Wonderful meal - great food, service and local wine”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

Right on the piazza in Lacco Ameno, this place had some of the best food we had on the island. Inside the decor is understated but we were treated with great attention and the food was exceptional.

Family run, you can see they take pride in their restaurant.

“A great place to eat in Lacco Ameno”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

This lovely restaurant is well worth a visit if you're staying near Lacco Ameno.

The people who work here are incredibly friendly and enthusiastic about the local food and wine they serve, and very helpful with recommendations. We ate here twice in a week in fact and the second time when we returned we were greeted like old friends.

The location is great too - right on the piazza, which is always buzzing with activity.

Highly recommended

“Exceptional quality cooking and great service”
Reviewed June 19, 2011

My wife and I would recommend this restaurant very highly indeed. We live in London, are well travelled and my wife is an excellent cook, so our standards are high. We visited Ristorante O'Pignattello three times in the space of a week's vacation on Ischia and on every occasion we thought the food extremely good and the service friendly without being intrusive. The outside tables have a lovely view over the main square in Lacco Ameno. Highly recommended.
