Description: It's a tiny family run restaurant right on the beach of Le Forna. It's set in an amazing landscape, reachable only by boat from the nearby beaches or through a path in the reef. The menu is quite simple and the offer of food is limited as everything they have is fresh and can be prepared only if the ingredients are available. The best dish they offer (remarkable) is called "Brivido di pesce" (shiver of fish), which consists in a chevice of mixed fish and spiced with local herbs. Their telephone number is 0771.808752 and it's only open in summer.

When you arrive in Ponza you can't help but notice the restaurant conveniently located at the port. Also, walking distance from the Grand Hotel Santa Domitilla. The service was amazing the view of the coast from the outside dining room are is splendid. The quality of the cuisine, services and local ingredients was superb!

The menu boast of local specialities. The wine menu was full of local and fruitful wines. The crisp taste and perfect pairing was indescribable. Also, the house made desert liquors were one of a kind. The limoncello was probably the best in the Amalfi Coast.

Of course you can not help but experience fresh seafood and pairing it with homemade pasta was the key to a seemless menu. I had an amazing grilled gamberi while my love enjoyed a dish of moules and a nice cream sauce over tagliatelle. So delish!

Not only did the serve as full service restaurant it was a concierge to the isle. Upon arrival and departures they tended to all of our docking needs and transportation while in Ponza. World class service and hospitality is a standard at Il Pescatore!

Beautiful restaurant, run by a lovely lady named Filomena. Menu had a large list of pasta, mostly seafood, and plenty of meat & seafood dishes available. Warm bread to start is really nice :-) the food was delicious and fresh, I liked the sauce on both pasta & meat dish. Can't wait to go back soon - hopefully next summer .... Ciao for now.

Even the stunning view over the cove would have been enough, but the warm and personal welcome from Filomena and Franko and their staff added value. And we haven't even mentioned the food, which could have been served in a Michelin rated restaurants. We had several of their innovative starters (we came in fact back the day after), like thin savory pancakes or the deep fried pumpkin flowers (think excellent tempura) as well as the aubergine tarte. Pasta to dream about and the highlight was the fish Ricciola (some kind of yellowtail) not the cheapest, but not really expensive anyway.
We ended the meal with their own semifreddo, simply delicious.
Their house white at very decent price and owner produced and grown behind the restaurant was excellent.

We will hopefully come back.
