We visited Il Borghetto with friends for dinner. The ante paste were superb and lots of it. We all had fillet steak for the main course which was cooked to perfection. This family owned restaurant may be difficult to get to as you have to drive up a narrow winding road to get there, but it is well worth it.... More

Il Borchetta is truly a unique find. Fresh, delicious food made to order. this charming remote restaurant and worth the trip if it's a bit far for you. The owner frank and his family go above and beyond to make your dining experience the best. The Lemon pasta is the best!

I've long had a rule of thumb that the closer a restaurant is to a tourist destination or transit hub, the worse the food. The opposite (the further the better) is not always true, but in the case of this gem of a restaurant in the middle of nowhere Ischia, the opposite of my rule of thumb holds true. Up... More

We had an amazing experience with fresh local cuisine and great wine, superbly served by the proprietor and his family. As we invited some old friends from the island, the owner kindly opened on a Monday (when they normally are closed). The ante paste were spectacular, followed by cozze and vongole, mixed salad, and a main course of superbly prepared... More

A world class meal at third world prices! This is one of those great, off the beaten path finds that come along only once in a great while.

The climb up to borghetto is worth the effort. We enjoyed the complimentary prosecco and courgette frittata while soaking up the incredible view from the terrace which over looks the whole bay of Naples. Then our wonderful meal was served in a atmospheric vaulted old wine vault next to a renovated family chapel. I particularly enjoyed the sea food rissotto... More
