Description: Located in Forio, La Casereccia is a family-run establishment that caters for all kinds of visitors including families with children. This is a restaurant that's very popular with locals, offering genuine home cooked food and using locally sourced ingredients where possible. Most of the vegetables come from the restaurant's own garden where they also produce red and white wine. The menu at La Casereccia varies according to what is in season at the time, but specialities are fish, pasta and pizzas made in their wood oven while ff you fancy something a bit different, try the pasta with lemon which is delicious. There are two main dining areas, one is a large indoor dining room with dozens of tables and a television in one corner while a glass conservatory area is nice and warm during the winter months. However during the summer the best place to eat is outside on the terrace.

We stayed at the Poggio del Sole for a week and ate at the Casereccia 3 nights, all the food was very good though I have to say the service could be a bit hit and miss. 2 nights were fine but 1 we ordered pasta and pizza planning to share, this was a good job as the pasta arrived and was eaten a good 15 minutes before the pizza arrived. Everything is freshly prepared so this could explain some of the wait but food should come out together. The staff are very friendly and work very hard, the owners are fantastic and helped us out a lot, I'll review the hotel seperately.

This was the BEST pizza ever - we thought we were just ordering slices (we're from NY, that's how they come!) so we ordered 3 to split... turned out we were ordering full pizzas! And it was just me and my husband! We started with the fresh seafood appetizer and caprese salad - was delish!!! And we managed to completely eat ALL 3 pizzas (we didn't eat the crusts, in order to save room!). They were so good we couldn't stop, plus the crust isn't as heavy as in the US so it didn't leave us feeling overly stuffed and lethargic. They were so good!! Plus we were the only tourists there, it filled up around 9:30 and everybody else eating there were locals!

I have been visiting Forio for six years and always visit La Casereccia as it is such a friendly restaurant and has such a variety of fabulous food. Whether you choose to sit inside or outside the atmosphere is great and the staff are always attentive and helpful. Mamma Tina cooks a stunning il coniglio al'ischitana and the ravioli is a must. I eat here at least three times a week and stay for two weeks twice a year and it really is the best and most affordable restaurant in Forio. If you are looking for a romantic meal, family meal or somewhere for a large celebration then do visit this restaurant and if you get a chance stay at Poggio del Sole you can walk down the hill and dine every evening. It is always a good sign when you see the restaurant packed with locals and the family are well loved by everyone. Can't wait to return see you very soon.

La Casereccia was recommended by our host; I don't know that we would have found it without him, it's a bit off the beaten path, which made it especially nice. The food was well done and fairly priced, and we enjoyed a great bottle of wine with dinner. Waiter was pleasant and efficient, we felt comfortable and welcome.

Went there two times. The food was excellent on both occasions but service was awfull. At first visit the restaurant was full so we gave them the second chance when the restaurant was only half full. But the service was even worst. We have been waiting for our food more than one hour. Then the waiter forget to serve our apetizers. The staff isn't organised at all. They are running around like chichkens without heads. Even to pay a bill you need to wait at least half an hour.
