已经5年了,我去了伊斯基亚岛度假,法罗一直是我最喜欢的地方。友好的服务,质量和新鲜的食物和惊人的观点。海鲜爱好者的小天堂!推荐! Has been 5 years that i went to Ischia island for holidays and IL FARO has always been my favorite spot. Friendly service, quality and fresh food and breathtaking view. A little paradise for seafood lovers! Recommended!

We have been to Il Faro 3 times so far on our vacation to Ischia! Our friends have been coming for many years. Gabby is wonderful & accommodating! Highly recommend the bruschetta with tuna, grilled shrimp, & assorted (lightly) fried seafood. The Spaghetti with clams & shaved truffles is one of the best things I have ever eaten! Also get...

Tantalising foody experience at Il Faro, Barano d'Ischia. Awesomely prepared Sea-Bream Carpaccio, really fresh off the sea, with tasty capers and black olives, and one generous portion of Seafood Paccheri pasta, topped with fresh tiger prawn, scallops, squid and clams. Super delicious and fresh, first time i got to experience such an authentic taste!! Highly recommended!!

Eating by Il Faro was the BEST DECISION OF THE TRIP! Great service, and best fish we've had in Ischia. EVERYTHING was delicious! Add in the cute 'family environment' and reasonable prices you have a MUST GO to restaurant. We loved it!

What a little jewel of a place this is. Food was tasty, fresh, very nicely prepared and presented. Service is excellent, we went there twice over a 2 day period that's how good this place is. Gaby and her husband Diego (who BTW is the chef, a real chef) are lovely people and the waitress (never got her name) was... More

The best food I had in Ischia. We went twice for dinner, and between us tried the grilled fish, two or three different kinds of pasta, a salad, and an icrecream and a chocolate dessert...not a single complaint to make each time. The ambience is great, the view is superb, the prices are comfortable and the lovely ladies bring you... More

In August 2012, during our short stay at the Maronti Beach, we had the pleasure of eating 3 times in this restaurant - despite the fine alternative of other beach restaurants. The "Il Faro" offers a wide selection of typical dishes - and the portions are incredible ! Each dish we chose, even the salads, could have served two persons...... More

I am a long time visitor to Ischia and I'll tell you you can't do better than breakfast, lunch or dinner at Il Faro. The chef owner offers authentic and rustic local fare with his own added flair as well as more elaborate dishes worthy of a Cordon Bleu. I am always ordering off the menu seeking the flavors and...
