This restaurant is fantastic. The waitress and waiter did not speak English but were ever so helpful in helping us choose our drinks and meal. This restaurant was full of local Italian people. The setting was lovely. We were brought two appetisers on the house. Our mains were delicious, one being the rabbit, would definitely recommend this. Very reasonably priced. Be warned however, there is a very steep climb to get to this restaurant. It is worth the climb though!

We literally stay on the Island of Ischia to eat here every single night. My parents grew up in Naples and our way pickier than us and we all love this place so much there are no words to describe the experience. Make sure to order the house white wine with peaches with whatever meal you choose. See you next summer Cristina!

First of all, don't follow Google Maps to get to this restaurant. The address is wrong, and Google will take you to a different mountain on the opposite side of the square. If you do find the place, you will enjoy the incredible rabbit dish, the gorgeous view, the friendly family-run service -- complete with loud shouts from the kitchen -- and the South Jersey style decor that only adds to the ambiance. The lovely hostess gave us a wonderful tour of the restaurant when she learned we were visiting from the U.S., and she spoke of the place with pride and love. What's more: she even arranged for a kitchen worker to drive us back to our hotel because it had taken us so long to get to the restaurant, and we'd gotten lost on foot. This is a special place that wasn't touristy at all; in fact, we were surrounded by families from Ischia who clearly adored the restaurant and the people who worked there.

We had read on trip advisor that this was an excellent restaurant. We ended up walking from the Harbor and it was a fun but grueling climb! Luckily there were signs to guide us in the right direction. Once we were there we were welcomed like family although we were the only English-speaking people there – everyone else seem to be locals, which we took as a very good sign. It is a family run establishment and they were very kind to change the servers to the best English-speaking one to help us. The portions were big and the food was amazing!! We are planning to go back tonight or tomorrow night - as we left, I told our server "see you tomorrow night!"
