The restaurant itself is well located by the beach overlooking the sea, but the food was very salty and far too expensive, e.g. I ordered the pasta with prawns which was off the menu and cost 22 euros, needless to say I complained because of the price and also because it was overcooked. Avoid this restaurant like the plague!

Dear Mrs. She has read the (printed with extra large) menu, which is translated into English and Russian. You have chosen a pasta with shellfish, Norway Lobster. In the menu, the Norway Lobster cost more than the prawns. But we have added in your bill lower price, € 22. When they brought your pasta with Norway Lobster, you asked the... More

Dining on a palafitte, suspended over the sea, tastefully decorated, enjoy a very innovative menu. Pasta mussel and chocolate or more classic clam spaghetti. I recommend Alberto fish fillet and to finish caprese cake. @foodpasha

The title says it all. The Island itself is stunning, a "go to" secret of the Italians, but the setting for this restaurant is really stunning.

This restaurant is right over the sea so has an unbelievable view. We did book and request a table on the edge however were given one in the center of the restaurant which was a little disappointing. The restaurant was smart and the food was good, although the 'white fish flakes' in my pasta were more like mush than flakes.... More

Kind RM Thank you for your appreciation. We give the tables on the window at all. She did not find the table on the window. For a simple reason.

Found this place on a day trip to Ischia from the mainland as it had been recommended. Décor and presentation of the food was excellent - very stylish. Food quality and portion size very good. The main advantage was the open windows on three sides providing a lovely breeze from the sea which is all round. Slightly eccentric service from... More

This is not only a restaurant for upscale dining but also a beach club serving for lunch, as well. We were there for a dinner. Interior decoration was all well except for very bright lighting.

Delicious meal with ok service. Our server seemed young and a bit unsure of herself. The owner/manager was at her side/our table to clarify & correct. The food & atmosphere were more than enough to compensate for the mediocre service (slow with a couple minor spills).

Food was quite good. We were there the night of the Italy- Germany match. Was therefore not very busy. Service was very poor by all staff, friendly though.

Dear Mr. Tramoretiffin. Thanks for the compliments, for the location the food quality. I thank you very much. But his statement about wine is very harsh and offensive. for raw fish (or tartar) we do have customers choose fish, specifically to give an account of the cost to the customer, since the menu is marked k1 white fish, € 85....

All the guide books mention this restaurant. It has a great location and view and is smart. The food is excellent. It is pricey and probably worth doing once if only to see why it was such a favourite of Anthony Minghella, Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow etc. The seafood is excellent.
