I would't go there more than 2 times consecutively, but for a inexpensive eat with big portions and honest food, it's perfect. The service (a lady of south american origin, I think) was not good at all. But the food is good and the prices are the lowest possible on Ischia for this type of food.

We had lunch here twice as we wanted to try the roast meat dishes and the pizzas.Both were good,the buffalo mozzarella pizza was delicious.House wine and coffee are great value ,the bread is good and the service is friendly and helpful.An unpretentious ,popular place which always seems to be justifiable busy.

You will likely pass this charming place as you come to the port from other directions on the island. There is an outdoor rotisserie running most all hours of the day and night and the cutest little man mans the delicious chickens and the porchetta that are roasted on the spits. The pizza is wonderful, the beer is cold and... More

Great value for money, great service, check the fridge as you enter for craft beer of the island, not cheap beer but two malted hops, blond and brown. Also stock morreti. Amazing roast potatoes with charcoal wood fired rotisserie chicken. Pizza was also amazing, as well as roast veg. Melenzani parmigiana was also good. Pizza was also wood fired

Not many tourist hit this gem and English not written or spoken. One of the few places to get roasted meats in town, and at VERY low prices. Not the very best roasted meats I have had, but I am from Texas where roasted/grilled/BBQ'd meats is a religion.

We were recommended this place by the car rental company while we waited for them to reopen to return our car. Two of us, half liter of house wine, 1/2 chicken, meatloaf, assorted veggies, and portion of gnocchi was 22 euro. The gnocchi was so good, and the house red wine was actually delicious!! But the roasted chicken, OMG, absolutely... More

On our last night, having passed this restaurant all week on the bus, salivating at the rotisserie chicken, we finally gave in and tried it. The chicken was absolutely fantastic - succulent, moist and delicious. The roast potatoes and aubergine parmagiana as good as any we've had! And cheap! Even better was the fantastic friendly service, especially from the owner,... More

You can't go wrong here, everything is good, fresh and wood fire cooked. When you are tired of fish which can happen on this delightful island this is the place to go to satisfy your craving for MEAT! This ain't haute cuisine folks it's simply prepped food cooked by a blazing wood fire that would make a caveman proud!

Finally got a table after waiting 40 mins we ordered some cheap local white whine, 1/2 chicken and a panini. Got drinks after 10 mins, chicken after 20 mins and the panini came after 50 mins. Was off putting eating food not together. Cheap but you get what you pay for.
