“Great restaraunt!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

The atmosphere of the place is really nice.
The seafood salade is OK even for 2 persons, not just one.
The brusquettas are delicious.
Highly recommend this restaraunt for those going to Ischia - it's right next to the Castle.
The owners should only pay more attention to the staff, they were a bit slow and disorganized.

“sensational restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

had dinner recently at aglio, olio e pomodoro and it was sensational! the service was ever so slightly brusque, but the kitchen really delivered... my companion's gnocchi were the best we'd ever tasted - and when my seafood salad was delivered, other tables were literally craning their necks to get a good look - that's how big and impressive it was! we sat outside on a hot summer night and it was utterly delightful - fabulous setting, fabulous wine, fabulous company, fabulous food! not to be missed!!

“Great genuine italian experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

This restaurant catched our eye already the first time we passed it. Nice looking, promising name etc. In the evening a depressing thing for the restaurant next door was that this place was full and people were queing in and the other place was empty... Antipasti was good and pizza perfect! Some guests did not know that they accept only cash so the waiter told them to come and pay later! Such a pearl for an restaurant. We would definitely come here again!

“Food disappointing and service arrogant and terrible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

This is a very popular place , hence we went for what was expected to be a lively trattoria experience with good basic Italian food.

However I'm afraid that the only reason we can see for that popularity was that the food was cheap. Perhaps there is a reason why...

We attempted to book a table for an hour later ( than 7.30) and this was refused, I guess due to the popularity of the place and they don't want wasted tables blocked up waiting for us. Fair enough we thought, wandered off for a bit and came back an hour later to find just the one table avl.

It was at this point that I noticed that the vast majority of diners were not Italian. Not abnormal in many resorts but ischia is 90% Italian visitors so to find a place without any was perhaps a warning sign?

Our food was ok, certainly no better than that. In fact I know I could cook the same dishes better myself. We had just some antiP, bowls of pasta and were then told, after ordering some dolce and coffee, that we had to vacate our table as it was reserved?! Bearing in mind what went before this was a surprise particularly as there were at that time several other empty tables, one of which was offered to us. By this stage I was feeling just a tad grumpy so declined this and asked for the bill whereupon the waitress (the same one who had refused our table reservation and then advised the one we were sitting on was reserved by someone else) immediately said it was ok and we could stay there after all.

By now what should have been an enjoyable evening had soured to the extent that we just wanted to leave and that is what we did.

I suspect that this place will remain busy but there is a lot of good food to be had in ischia ponte and anyone who spends a small amount of time looking around will find much better for only slightly more money. Indeed just down the street is the Ciccio which is just such a place.

Avoid. Only reason that this isn't a one star review is that the food was not actually inedible, just dull.

“Best food in Ischia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

This is my favourite restaurant in Ischia Ponte - the standard of food is fantastic and is a true taste of typical Ischia cuisine.

Can highly recommend the antipasti, including octopus stew, grilled Mediterranean vegetables and courgette flowers. The fresh seafood pastas are also completely delicious. White chocolate soufflé was the best I've ever had.

If you only visit one restaurant in Ischia Ponte, make sure it's this one.
