Not sure if it's something fantastic they put in the Frutti Di Mare or just the excellent selection of wines but we too also left a bag which was returned by the fantastic, friendly and professional young owners. We felt welcomed in both English &...Italian (as a English/Italian couple the English was impeccable) and with a relaxed atmosphere you don't often see in top tier dining there is no reason not to recommend this restaurant. Particularly of note was the freshly caught local sea food, the catch of the day prepared to order and the amazing local digestive served. For any young professionals looking for a once in a holiday experience I can't recommend this fantastic food and friendly service enough.More

We had a wonderful meal at O'Pingatello. The menu is primarily seafood-based. The atmosphere, service and presentation is very elegant and impeccable. It was quiet and restful and the staff was very friendly, helpful and charming.

This place was outstanding. We went for a romantic evening for our anniversary. The food was the best we’ve had in our lives. The wine was gorgeous, with a very comprehensive menu. The service was fantastic, such friendly and kind people. I even accidentally ended...up leaving my phone in the piazza in front of the restaurant; we phoned as soon as we realized (very late at night, about 2am) and they arrived on a Vespa with my phone. We had been so stressed but these guys were so lovely. Best food, best wine, best service, best people! Can’t recommend this place moreMore

We had a wonderful dining experience in this beautifully appointed restaurant located on the main square of Laco Ameno. The sea-bream in salt crust was as good as it gets. We loved everything about this place from the excellent service, reasonable prices, and freebies. We...were told to call before 10 am to order whatever fish may be bought fresh that morning on the local market. We ll return before leaving splendid Ischia.More

We were staying at San Montano and wanted to eat off the property so this was just a shuttle ride down the hill. This was such a pretty and cozy restaurant with the fire heaters blowing. Everyone enjoyed their meal, particularly my husband who had...the sea bass. The staff was adorable and attentive.More

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at O' Pignattello during our last night in Ischia (and our honeymoon). We found ourselves in Lacco Ameno after foiled plans to hike Mount Epomeo due to all day rain, but decided to head to Negombo...Thermal Park anyway to see what it's all about. We stayed on the other side of the island, near Ischia Porto, so it was our first time in the Lacco Ameno area. We are SO glad we decided to check out the restaurants in Lacco Ameno for apertifs and dinner, because it was simply the best! We made a reservation at O' Pignatello about an hour beforehand (this was a Sunday), and were nervous we would be turned away for our attire (we were wearing athletic gear and backpacks since we thought we would be hiking), but they never made us feel inadequate. Service was phenomenal from beginning to end, food was the best we had in Italy (and we stayed 5 days in Positano, so that's saying a lot!), and we just had the most perfect last meal in Ischia. We asked for a grilled shrimp appetizer (local shrimp, sooo sweet and tender), I had a seafood pasta, my husband had the suckling pig, and then we shared a tiramisu for dessert. Not to mention some complimentary chocolates and limoncello. Everything was incredible and so beautifully presented. We were only able to catch Lucia's name, but everyone was wonderful and super attentive. If you are in Ischia, go here NOW!More

The food was excellent only surpassed by the wonderful service and attention by the manager Michaele . Dining on vacation in a foreign country is an adventure and when the staff is warm and friendly it enhances the experience. Grazie !

We have visited Ischia for several years and tried many restaurants. O'Pignattello is a fine diniing with clean tablewear, comfortably laid out in a pretty quiet square. The staff are friendly and helpful. When we wanted a dish adjusted or change, nothing was too much...trouble. Food very good and reasonably priced, We have found it to be consistenly reliable eating there twice each time we holiday in IschiaMore

Wonderful place with superb service. Appetizers of eggplant Parmesan , burrata with homegrown tomatoes and lobster cappuccino were outstanding. We were offered variety of fresh caught fish for grilling and picked sea bass. It was grilled to perfection, served for four with sides of grilled...veggies. Overall a perfect place to enjoy local cuisine.More
