We popped into this busy restaurant on our way to the Castillo Aragonese and enjoyed simple Italian food and friendly service. We both started with Proscuitto, sir with melon, myself with mozzarella and olive. The ham was a little dry around the edges but perfectly serviceable. I had a Spaghetti Puttanesca and sir had Insalata Caprese. We both ate with... More

Sure it's wonderful any day but if you're unfortunate enough to arrive from Naples on a wet day and you leave the ferry terminal behind you in pouring rain then a good lunch with local wine is the remedy ! Home made delicious pasta of course and mussels in a rich tomato sauce under the awning beneath the ancient walls... More

Perfect setting with a view of the castle. Very friendly waiter and excellent typically Italian food with a good value price tag. Local wine is excellent!

Stopped here for lunch after visiting the castle. Sat outside with a gorgeous view of the sea and the castle. Food was excellent and service was good. Definitely recommend.

We had a delicious meal here with gnocchi and spaghetti carbonara - which was the best I've ever had! The wine was also incredible. Beautiful views and attentive staff. Very reasonably priced, and excellent quality.

You would think they just don't like people ! We had a group of 12 eat there but the waitress never smiled and neither did the waiter. Lacking enthusiasm and just no real grasp of customer service to people who are on holiday and spending money in their establishment. Food ok but better mussels at Eden or Cocco which is... More

I worry that the waiters are crooks also. wish I had read the review from the person from the Netherlands (below). The waiter did not give me a cash register receipt (a big no no in Italy). When I took out my credit card, he asked if I had cash, I did. He put down a number on a plain... More

I have to say that food was very tasty. I ordered some pasta with Frutti di Mare...and it was pleasure. And Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella was great, too. And you can see Aragon Castle from restaurant. And prices are ok. But Service was so slow...we spent there a very long time with waiting for food, for bill...

The service was quite slow, the food was tasty but there are better places to go in ischia Porto for the same price and... More

The restaurant is located in a good spot, unluckily for me we had the table in the darkest spot. I had some trouble cleaning the shrimps and the others fishes due to the lack of light. i didn't enjoy pasta as well but my parents liked it, so i guess it's just personal taste.
