A friend had told us that we had to visit La Bella Napoli when visiting Ischia.
I called the week before to avoid disappointment.

The restaurant is in a great location with a view of the sunset. The food is out of this world. We were a group of 5 and all of us LOVED it.

The Caprese Salad and Tuna Steak were stand out dishes for us, everything was so fresh and delicious.

Dessert was also amazing and of course some shots of Rucolina and Limoncello shots to finish off.

The staff were super friendly and helpful, the wine was crisp and cold.

Great prices, great food and drink, great everything

This is a must try place when staying in Ischia, can't wait to go again.

Our hotel had booked us a table at this restaurant and we went a couple of nights later. As we arrived the 'main man' (as he appeared to be!) was in discussion with two lots of people as to whether he could give them a table. At first he appeared to think he was full but then gave away a table for four and a table for two. When he got to us, he took us out of the main restaurant to a side part which was far less atmospheric! When I asked if we could be in the main restaurant he just said no! How did he have tables there for people who had just walked in but had to put those who had booked in the side restaurant?!! He was also very grumpy and unfriendly. On the plus side, being where we were did mean that we were then served by two delightful waitresses who were not at all grumpy!! The food was absolutely delicious, but a word of warning, the portions are enormous!! One starter and one main between the two of us would have been ample!

We arrived with no reservation on a Sunday night to a packed restaurant. At first we were told "impossible." Despite we said we would be happy to wait. As we continued to stand and decide to leave or what to do next, the manager offered us a table, indoors, near the kitchen. We accepted and tried not to feel like we were missing out on the patio seating, sea view, and people watching.
We ordered a bottle of prosecco and mussels to start and then it felt like something shifted... as if they figured out we were going to order a full meal and they turned up the service. One waiter took our drink order then Olga was our main server. She was very personable and made our dining experience a delight.
The bruschetta was the best we had in 2 weeks of travel. The mussels, the carbonara, the cutlet, the fries, all delicious. It was nice to be able to order a half bottle of wine.
Olga was delightful and served us a taste of a special white wine and then the rucola digestivo.
A memorable meal.

We were staying 3 days in Forio and visited different restaurants each day, and we did have ou best pizza in town in la bella napoli. The tomato caprese can also only be recommended...(during our stay in Italy we tested about 10 different and this was the best one)
Only negatif point: you have to reserve if you want a table and smoking on the mostly covered terrasse is still allowed :-(

We tried to get into this restaurant twice - second time lucky! It is popular so either book or turn up early. We were most surprised by how friendly the staff were. In most of the restaurants we visited the staff were quite rude and unfriendly but here they had smiles on their faces! The menu had an excellent choice of seafood, meats, pizza and pasta all for reasonable prices. We had the caprese salad and a carbonara pasta with courgette which were delicious. Would totally recommend eating here. They also play good music which is relaxing and the decor is very nice and beach like!
