Restaurant | "Best Restaurant on the Island"

During our week in Ischia, I can say that overall, the most amazing dining experience on the entire trip (and definitely up on the list for most amazing dining experience ever) was the evening we went to Ristorante Giardino Eden. We were told about this place by someone who lived in Ischia for a while, and had said it was one of her favorite and a must-visit. One of the greatest parts about it, was that after making our reservation, they sent for a boat to pick us up on the harbor by our hotel and bring us to the restaurant dock entrance. We only had to walk about 1 block from our hotel to an area where small private boats are rented, where we told them that we were with the re...Read More

Restaurant | "Ischia Ponte's Most Talked About Family Restaurant"

We recently spent about a week in the Italian island of Ischia. Located in the Gulf of Naples, we were anxious to see if the food was similar to that of Naples (one of the tastiest cities). In ended up being quite different...but still very good. If I had to sum up the Ischian cuisine in one dish it'd be: frutta di mare (seafood). Of course, this is understandable since they are surrounded by the sea...but it makes it a bit challenging for me since I don't eat seafood. One of the most talked about restaurants in Ishicia Ponte is Ristorante da Ciccio, known for amazing family service and traditional Ischian fare. Not only was this place recommended to us by some locals, but I'd ...Read More

In the town of Lacco Ameno there is a lovely central area with many shops and cafes which line the ocean. We we told to visit the Pizzeria and Restaurant of La Sirenella Hotel while we were on our holiday in Ischia by a friend who'd lived here for several years. She said that the best pizza on the island was found at La Sirenella.So after a day at the nearby thermal spa of Negombo, we walked back through the town of Lacco Ameno and found the pizzeria. We were so glad to see that they offered "focaccia" pizza, as this is one of my favorite kinds. Unfortunately we'd arrived just as the kitchen was closing for the late afternoon, and told to return at dinnertime instead. A few hou...Read More

Right across the small cobblestone street in Ischia Ponte from the most well-known restaurant, "Ciccio", there is another lovely family establishment called "Al Pontile".We stopped there the second night we were in Ischia, and were pleasantly surprised. First, we checked out the display menu and it looked quite good, and the host came out to talk with us and when we decided to stay, they asked if we'd like to sit on the outdoor tables out front, or inside, or outside in the back looking at the ocean. We chose the waterfront tables, (as had everyone else). It initially had looked like no one was really eating there, but then we saw that there were a handful of other couples, but everyone wa...Read More

Restaurant | "Tasty Food, Good Prices"

For our last evening in Ischia, we really didn't have much of a plan on where to eat. We'd already visited many of the restaurants that people had recommended to us before hand, or those we'd made notes on based on our own research.We felt like just lazily walking the small town of Ischia Ponte where our hotel was, and happening upon someplace that looked good. There isn't too many restaurants to check out in this specific area, and we'd already tried out the two main ones near the Castello Aragonese.We did peak inside a couple more, but they just didn't hit the spot, or looked too touristy. As we passed a pizzeria which we'd passed many times in the past week, we took a second...Read More
