The food is really good the best on the Island I think. Me and my mother went there for two days in a row. They were also really friendly and the place is beautiful

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... More

You know a restaurant has to be good when even a seasoned taxi driver can't find it and he drops you off to walk the rest of the way down a dark street because he is lost. Montecorvo is apparently one of those hidden secrets that the natives know and it immediately becomes apparent why. The son of the founder... More

Delightful traditional cuisine worth a Michelin star! And wonderful atmosphere of joy and carelessness brought by Giovani and his sons will make you happy and keep you warm for a long long time! As for the menu-don't hesitate and go for octopus salad in crunchy tart, try one of oven pizzas, take some tidbits to share and take a chance... More

A short walk from our hotel and what delight it was. Please make sure to have the Rabbit stew a restaurant specialty which more than lives up to its reputation. (needs to be pre-ordered) Staff pleasant and welcoming. We went back for a second night and the fish dish was excellent as well. Follow staff's recommendation regarding local wine. Had... More

This restaurant is a must if you are staying in Ischia, get a taxi though as it is tucked away in the lush hillside. When you step in it's like walking into a secret garden,the most stunning setting!

We got a taxi from Lacco Ameno at the usual rip off island taxi rates in search of this gem. You'd never find this place yourself and the roads are winding and very narrow. Our driver agreed to pick us up later which seemed a good idea as we were so isolated. We had a truly wonderful meal here. We... More

We were recommended this restaurant by Guiseppe our host at Eremo di Montevergine. The food was simply exquisite. The first in this place is incredible as is the meat and the wine. The ambiance of the restaurant is very original and it almost feels like you are eating in a 'jungle' even though you are indoors. The views are breathtaking,... More

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.
