My favorite meal in Southern Italy. Worth sailing to. Dare to try whatever dish, wine ... Service is kind and patient and curious and other guests are good looking (wonder how I got a table)

While we have not tried them all, this must absolutely be the best restaurant on Ventotene. Romantic garden, an incredibly friendly (and English and German speaking) staff and outstanding food. Just look at the pictures.

I had a great starter of filled courgette flowers, the main of filled calamari was average but the dessert, pistacchio semifreddo, was just AMAZING! I've never had anything like it!

This place came highly recommended, so our expectations were high. We booked a table for 5 people, and were advised to be there promptly as restaurant was expected to be busy - it was a Saturday night after all! We were seated at 20:00, rather...More
