Unfortunately we only discovered this place on out last evening - the "home" picture on trip advisor doesn't do this place justice.
Situated up a short hill and quite well hidden - you have to search it out, we were Greeted by a charismatic Samuel. We sat looking over the magnificent view across to the mainland. The restaurant itself is simply decorated which fits perfectly with its surroundings. The menu is limited but excellent - if you want fish you need to order it in the morning as it is caught and served that day. Otherwise BBQ and grilled meats, pastas etc and salads. All really expertly cooked and presented - my pasta dish was created "off menu" with selected ingredients that I just fancied!!
It is a real jewel of the island - I just wish we had found it earlier - do not miss this restaurant - it was the best food we had all week.

Good food, nice people, also gluten-free stuff :) A bit weird that the menu was informative, but in the same time, it means they have little products but good and fresh ones :)

This is a delightful hideaway restaurant! We came for lunch on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. Keep looking as you walk up the small hill - it's worth it! Samuel was welcoming even though it was past normal lunch hour. We had eggplant parmesan, and it was incredible, melts in your mouth. Fresh bruschetta and pasta with clams and muscles completed the perfect meal. Local Ischian wine was surprisingly tasty. Everything was so delicious, but the amazing view of Ischia and the Italian music playing just made the perfect setting for an afternoon lunch. Delightful!

The food was spectacular.

The service was best I have ever had.

The overview of the town and the water made it the perfect setting to a fantastic night.

Buonissimo!
