Scialatielli ai frutti di mare is the best i have tasted that i can recall, and i've traveled all around the world, worked in restaurant hotel management. Secondi octopus wasn't very good/had no flavour, was just cooked in tomato sauce. Contorno vegetables were way overcooked and extremely salty. Sunday lunch closes at 15h - if you arrive at 15h20 from... More

We ate here two nights in a row as not many restaurants in the area and we had good service and good food the first night so went back. First night we had carbonara and gnocchi al Sorrentina second night we both had chicken escalope with chips, both very good meals at good prices.

My family of four stayed a week nearby at Punta Chiarito. Panza is an easy walking distance from their dependence(Villa Catarina). This restaurant/pizzeria has a golden spot right on the main road through Panza. You can't miss it by foot, car or the nearby bus stop. We had pizza, pasta and for my youngest since we just arrived from Germany(And... More

Every time we come to Ischia (twice a year for the last 5 years) we come to Il Ritrovo. It is a very welcoming and great place to eat. There is special parking for it. The Owners are great-and the food is fantastic. Great value/ Locals eat here.

Food was so delicious that we went here twice even though we said we would not eat at the same restaurant twice while in Ischia for a few days. Our host, Angelo, was the best. He was entertaining, funny, and he recommended meals for our large family. The service was outstanding, food was fresh and the rotisserie chicken was out... More

I had pasta with 4 different seafood that was so fresh and tasty, my husband had a hawaiian pizza that had a delicious crust, our friends... More

We came in thinking of grabbing pizza, but instead were captivated by the suggestions of the staff. We enoyed various dishes and we were all very happy with our chioces. Seating on the terrace is a little cramped, but adequate. Service was very good and attentive.

We ate at this restaurant three times and were never disappointed. I strongly recommend the spit roasted chicken, it is to die for, so delicious. Also pizza was great and do try pear and ricotta cake is so good. Big porsions, great tasting food, great prices. I would go back to Ischia just to eat in that restaurant!

Thank Vero M
