Great location on Rive Droit in Ischia Porto. The owners speak English well (they did work in London for quite a long time) and also German and Russian. Patronized by locals who know the value of their seafood. Excellent oysters, spaghetti with sea urchins, other "first courses" with fish and appetizers (fish) - Reservations are suggested for dinner. Casual but... More

The Tasting menu is superb -then choose your favourite dish as a main course. If you can manage it! The food, is the freshest, innovative with flair. Really enjoyed every evening we ate there - when we tried elsewhere we realised there is only one place to eat - L'Ostricaro ! Michele and his chef could not do more to... More

I gave this place 5 star a year ago. I noticed a decline in food quality. Raw bar still excellent, spaghetti sea urchin too fat and urchin overcooked, probably the dish was sitting at the kitchen too long. I had a sixty euro zuppa di pesce tasteless which i couldnt finish. Expensive

Local person recommended. A must to have reservation if possible and you speak English so they keep an eye out for you. We asked the owner to just choose for us what we wanted. He showed us the fish and lobster he would choose. He brought us tastings, recommended wine and we never asked for cost and guess what ...totally... More

A few metres from the harbour, good fresh fish and seafood served by friendly, knowledgeable owner. Good choice of wines both Ischian and others and well appointed.

During our visit to Ischia, we were delighted to experience a festival on our first night. All the restaurants had a fixed price fish menu that looked appetizing; however, L' Ostricaro, right on the waterfront, had a second such menu of specialties that we enjoyed. The appetizers were good, the fish was fresh and prepared fairly well, and above average... More

The food was of a good standard which is more than can be said of the staff. What we took to be the Padrone was rushing around, smoking and phoning all the time,very unprofessional and not at all relaxing.

We came in for a dinner around 10:30pm, having in mind just to indulge with raw sea food island Ischia is famous for. The pace was super busy, but they have managed to find a tab for 2 for us right away. We have ordered "le crudite" - everything raw: 4 langoustine (scampi), 8 oysters Gillardeau and 10 sea urchins...

We tried several of the restaurants on the harbour side in Ischia port and this one stood out. It is very friendly and helpful and an easy sort of place, very relaxing. The pasta and halibut was very good as was the pasta with clams and zucchini. The wine was apparently made by the owner's father but we have no... More
