Spadara Bistrot

With kaleidoscopic tile work and impeccable pasta, this bolthole in Forio is one for the books. With zucchini chips by the bucket load, hand-painted plates and punchy cocktails, what it lacks in space it more than makes up for in personality.

Trattoria da Peppina di Renato

The rough road to Trattoria da Peppina di Renato is in stark contrast to the smooth service you’ll receive once inside. This is family-style dining at its best and every table is the best table, whether that’s out on the terrace or in the cavernous belly of the main restaurant. We’ve taken a bit of a shine to the indoor dining room with its old wooden beams and rows of wicker baskets, copper pots and jars of dried herbs. Quainter than quaint.

Trattoria Casa Colonica del Negombo

Dark polished wood offset with Skittles-coloured chairs of varying shapes and sizes; this place oozes happiness down to the fish-shaped plates donning the walls. Grab a table in the courtyard dining area for a particularly relaxed experience.

La Locanda di Vito

Naples is known for having the best pizza in the world, and next-door-neighbour Ischia isn’t far behind. At La Locanda di Vito (the place to live out doughy dreams), tables fill up from lunch until late. It’s an ideal spot for an easy dinner with easy-on-the-eye design (think delicate glassware and turquoise- and jade- hued floor tiles).

Le Fumarole da Nicola

Given Le Fumarole da Nicola’s location – down a long path, over some hills and halfway along Le Fumarole beach in Sant’Angelo – it’s probably a good idea to choose your footwear wisely. By the time you arrive, you’ll have worked up quite an appetite for a menu is based around fresh fish and pasta as well as some great desserts to finish. Choose a table under a raffia umbrella lining the balcony seats. With views of exposed cliffs and the sound of the sea on repeat, this is one of the best dining spots in all of Ischia.
