“Seemed like something from the freezer”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

It breaks my heart to give this review, because the chef/waiter/owner?) was a sweet older man, who offered us a free shot on Limoncello at the end of the dinner, but it was bad, I'm sorry, it just was. Like a frozen dinner melted and heated up.

“THE BEST RESTAURANT IN ISCHIA!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

My husband and I took a trip to Ischia May 2012, and found ourselves in the best restaurant EVER. We loved the little decorated restaurant - It's the type of restaurant where the mom is in the back rolling the noodles, everything is homemade. The son & father were so friendly and hospitable. We were in Ischia for 2 nights, and ate there both evenings. The noodles with the seafood were just amazing!

They took limoncello shots with us after dinner and we had a lot of fun taking photos together with the whole family too. I just recently mailed them our photo and hope to keep in touch w/ the family....they are that great!

I miss them and I miss Ischia! We would seriously move there if we could - if you take a trip to Ischia, DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE! It's a true gem in the tiny hidden island of Ischia.

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

My husband and I visited this restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews and it held up to it's 5 star rating. This restaurant serves the best pasta I've had. We ate here 3 times during our 5 day stay in Ischia and each time it was delicious. My favourite was the signature Al Pontile spaghetti - amazing. The family that runs the restaurant is wonderful and all of the meals are homemade. We tried 4 different pastas, the bruschetta and 3 different wines - all were excellent. The back patio has a wonderful view of the sea and castle and the atmosphere is quite intimate. We would go back to this restaurant time and time again.
