Quiet little courtyard with all outdoor tables. Ceiling fans to keep cool. We had a salad with tuna for starters. Really tasty, although we usually don't like raw things and the tuna was just lightly seared on one side. And they let us finish it before bringing out the next course. Very unGreek. The mussels and clams with linguine was good too. But the real highlight was spinach and ricotta ravioli with a walnut sauce. To die for. Both pastas tasted homemade.
Pretty dining space. Polite and attentive service.
Only complaint- don't serve the red wine at room temp on a summer day.

We were here for dinner and had a very pleasant surprise, the restaurant its small and cozy with amazing eggplant parmigiana, the best I have ever tried. Price wise at the high end but worth it.

We came for dinner on our last night and really wished we’d discovered it sooner! Really beautiful garden setting in the quieter streets behind the harbour. Friendly service and really tasty Italian food. What’s not to love?! Highly recommend.

I have already reviewed this restaurant, but as it happens we’ve returned this June and found out that just like fine wine, Il Casta keeps on improving.
To top that off, the night we were there Sir Paul McCarney of The Beatles came in to dine, and even went to thank the Chef!
We had Shrimp and Ginger Homemade Ravioli and Lemon and Mint Spaghetti, both exquisite!

By far the best restaurant in Hydra.

We have discovered this restaurant after coming to Hydra for many years - what a find! The tuna was perfectly prepared, the spinach ravioli clearly made freshly that day. Everything was delicious, and the service was friendly and attentive. We will be back!
