Description: Just 1 km from the hamlet of Panza, Forio d'Ischia, the Montecorvo is a cozy restaurant nestled in the countryside between Ischia. Few tables, pieces of art chosen with great taste, a well and a fireplace carved into the stone green (inside). In hot weather it can dine on the romantic terrace garden, exotic plants and water features created by the fountains. Our specialties are the rabbit in clay pot and the meat in general with a wide selection of fresh local seafood also available in variants traditional, yet innovative, our thinking is to propose traditional dishes with the touch of individuality that does not go to distort the history of our land. Among the main courses are between the various choices also the pasta with rabbit sauce, linguine with mussels, clams and prawns, paccheri pesto with parsley and anchovies. Imaginative appetizers such as stuffed zucchini flowers, eggplant burgers, our pizza with gorgonzola cheese, anchovies of lemon leaf and specialties to discover. How sweet the caprese, the baba, the cake napoleon, the pears and cottage cheese. Montecorvo The restaurant is located 500 meters from the sports field of Panza (opposite the junction to Panza in the municipality of Forio). Time Walk 10-15 minutes, five minutes by car.

My husband and I went to Ischia last November 2013. We stayed at a nearby B&B and arrived late, and was recommended Montecorvo for dinner so we had no expectations at all. And what a wonderful surprise! Fantastic food, the service was impeccable, atmosphere authentic and romantic! We actually end up going there for two dinners and a lunch, everything tasted great but if you are going there just once, try the rabbit dish. Giovanni and his son were wonderful and friendly hosts and their genuine proud of cooking made our stay in Forio perfect. We are looking forward to go back to Forio, and this restaurant will sure be the first one to be visited :)

My sisters & I had been taken to this restaurant by our driver on a day trip to the island a few years before. We asked him to take us to a fabulous restaurant in the countryside, and that is what he delivered! Giovanni, his wife & sons gave us an incredible lunch, we left the choice all up to him & it was delicious.
This time my husband & I were on the island for 5 days & this was top of our list. We sat on the terrace, watching the sunset eating fresh pizza bread and stuffed baked aubergines. Then sat inside the beautiful cosy restaurant where we had lemon linguini followed by baked sea bream.
Nico, his son served us & he was fantastic, we've never been looked after so well.
If I'm ever fortunate enough to return to Ischia I will be heading here.
The fish is expensive but worth it for the overall experience.

Every time I go the food seems better than the time before. Little touches like the new items on the menu, the new Color scheme of the main dining room and the beautiful restroom it's a first-class experience from start to finish.

We stayed in a nearby B&B and were lucky enough to visit here twice in our three days on the island. We had no expectations whatsoever, but were SO HAPPY we found this place. It was May 2013 so right at the beginning of the season, service was excellent and very friendly. The two sons of the owner made it an enjoyable experience. The tastes and flavours were fantastic. One thing I find really important when I go out for dinner is good lighting, and it was perfect, a cosy and authentic atmosphere which gets softer as the wine flows. We are vegetarian and did not struggle at all. Pizzas were better than those we had in Naples. Thanks to all the staff. Magical.
