We were recommended this restaurant by a fellow guest at our hotel who is a regular visitor to the area. We were not disappointed - we were greeted at front of house by the proprietor's Father, a very likeable man called Cero, and on the first evening we were only really wanting a drink, this was not a problem and we were made to feel welcome. We actually then decided to stay and eat. We returned on 2 more occcasions during our 10 night stay. The food was delicious - freshly cooked by Luigi's Mother, and we found all of the staff (mostly family) to be very friendly and helpful. I see that some reviews mention slow service - this is not a fast food restuarant and it is popular and busy , however in our experience we did not have to wait long for our order. I agree that a menu in english would be most helpful for us non Italian speakers. Would definitely recommend this restuarant for the food and the view.

The food was decent, but service was terrible! We waited over 1 hour between courses and when we asked if there was an issue the waiting staff were incredibly rude. Food is quite good but definitely not worth the wait!

Staff at our hotel recommended Al Pontille for its traditional food and great location. It lived up to both.... Authentic Italian cooking with a wonderful view of the castle, great way to spend a relaxing evening. Very reasonably priced, one tiny criticism - we don't read Italian and there was no English translation although the waiter helped with our selection. Would definitely recommend eating here.

Just got done with a lunch here that lasted over two hours. We only ordered simple starters and pasta dishes. They really didn't pay much attention to us, and we got the feeling that we were not as welcome here being tourists. They forgot our wine order, brought one of our pasta dishes out about 10 minutes after the other pasta dishes were served, and never showed any care about it at all. The food was good, but not worth the bad service. I wouldn't consider going back ever again. There are plenty of other places in Ischia Ponte that have good food and actually appreciate your business. I'll give them my money instead.

Waited over 1 hour for first course. Servers noticed bringing wrong food to tables when the kitchen finally got the food ou of the kitchen. A complete waste of time with so many good restaurants that know what service is all about. Crazy this place is rated so good.
