Description: Just 1 km from the hamlet of Panza, Forio d'Ischia, the Montecorvo is a cozy restaurant nestled in the countryside between Ischia. Few tables, pieces of art chosen with great taste, a well and a fireplace carved into the stone green (inside). In hot weather it can dine on the romantic terrace garden, exotic plants and water features created by the fountains. Our specialties are the rabbit in clay pot and the meat in general with a wide selection of fresh local seafood also available in variants traditional, yet innovative, our thinking is to propose traditional dishes with the touch of individuality that does not go to distort the history of our land. Among the main courses are between the various choices also the pasta with rabbit sauce, linguine with mussels, clams and prawns, paccheri pesto with parsley and anchovies. Imaginative appetizers such as stuffed zucchini flowers, eggplant burgers, our pizza with gorgonzola cheese, anchovies of lemon leaf and specialties to discover. How sweet the caprese, the baba, the cake napoleon, the pears and cottage cheese. Montecorvo The restaurant is located 500 meters from the sports field of Panza (opposite the junction to Panza in the municipality of Forio). Time Walk 10-15 minutes, five minutes by car.

Really excellent food, specialising in meat dishes, but a couple of fish dishes on request.
Friendly staff.

Probably the best of the 3 restaurants in the immediate area. The food is good, staff friendly and professional and the setting is spectacular. Do have a look inside even if like most people you choose to do e AL fresco, the mementos inside reinforce the family quality of the restaurant.

I'd read about this restaurant on Lonely Planet and our hotel concierge also recommended it, so I was expecting great things and it didn't disappoint. We got a taxi there and I'm not sure how easy it is to find on foot. The restaurant is in a lush garden setting and family run, so you get well looked after. A piano player is there all evening, providing a lovely ambience. Although the fresh fish looked amazing, we decided to have the steak on volcanic rock and there was more meat than the 2 of us could eat! However we had started with some antipasto and gnocchi, both delicious, and could be why we were quite full! The iced limoncellos at the end were a perfect finish to a perfect meal.

The restaurant was only a short walk from our hotel, but I can imagine that it would be difficult to find if you were staying in the centre of Forio. We had a table outside, which was very nice and only slightly troubled by Mosquitos. Food was excellent and they had a good wine selection. Service was both friendly and efficient. Dinner for 2 adults and 1 child came to €92.
