La Rosa dei Venti
Venture to the edge of the Fiaiano pinewood forest for dinner at La Rosa dei Venti. The outside terrace and indoor dining rooms promise views of the green hills down to the Castello Aragonese in Ischia Ponte. You’ll likely encounter huge tables of lively locals celebrating a baptism or birthday in the large, casual space, and if there’s an important soccer match, it’ll be playing on the large TVs.
Peer through the glass-doored fridge filled with thick cuts of beef, veal, and ribs and pick your favorite—it’ll come to you perfectly cooked by the wood-fired grill, while wood-fired ovens turn out gourmet pizzas with soft, fluffy crust. There’s sometimes a shuttle service to take you to and from Ischia Porto, otherwise a taxi is your best bet.
