I should start by saying that not only do we love visiting Italy and the Napoli Bay Area in particular but we tend to avoid the most touristy places, when possible. This goes for restaurants too so we make efforts to find places popular with locals not just high-rated on Tripadvisor. Ischia is somewhere we've visited at least 8 times... More

One of the best restaurant on the Island, food is simply how it should be: genuine, with premium ingredients and well cooked. Pizza in particular here is a Premium one: is the best I have ever had in my life (I'm from Naples). Prices more than honest. Only improvement needed is the service: you could wait for a good 30...

I was there for a dinner with my wife. We were outside, in the internal court. We had "impepata di cozze", "involtino di melanzane e pesce", "mezzi paccheri con ricciola, zucchine e pomodorini", and "pizza 5 petali", and a good bottle of Ischia's wine. The food was great, perfectly cooked and very tasty. The only negative point is the noise.... More

Returning from dining here last night,I was compelled to check this site to understand how this restaurant made it into the top 10 of restaurants in Forio. Only one review in the last nine months? Will not set out to explain why but we found little to enthuse about on our visit. On arrival, the proprietor brusquely led us to... More

Everything from appetizer to dessert is to die for! You need reservation even during low season but we can see why- food is outstanding. It's in Forio but not in the center of town so you need a scooter, a car or taxi to get there. It's worth the drive.

the usual story of a tourist, a taxi drivers tells us of this restaurant, he goes there every weekend with his family...my fist thought, he takes us to a terrible place because he gets a free meal there, we still went and it was absolutely amazing....a unique place, not only in Ischia, the food was better than in almost all...

Came alone as its close to where I am staying. The food is faultless. Truly delicious. I enjoyed bruschetta, pizza and fresh cherry tomato spaghetti pasta. Cheesecake was divine also. Only downside is the surly service. The head honcho puts in the effort now and then however the main waiters don't have much customer service. It may have been my... More

Il Limoneto is absolutely one of the most terrific experience you can have in Forio. Everything is absolutely delicious: you can have pasta, pizza, main courses: everybody will be pleased. Wine selection is the topmost quality and the waiters are absolutely kind, available and they can always provide the best advice. I can truly recommend.

Our hotel recommended this place to us and I must say we had the best dinner while in Ischia. The ricota cheese sufle and the fish a la "limoneto" were superb. Very recomendable indeed.
