Il Focolare information
A good choice for those seeking a little turf instead of surf, this is one of the island’s best loved restaurants. Family run, homey and rustic, it has a solidly traditional meat-based menu with steaks, lamb cutlets and specialities, including coniglio all’Ischitana (typical local rabbit dish with tomatoes, garlic and herbs) and tagliatelle al ragu di cinghiale (ribbon-shaped pasta with wild boar ragout).
On the sweet front, the desserts are home-made and exquisite. Owner Riccardo D’Ambra (who runs the restaurants together with his son, Agostino), is a leading local advocate of the Slow Food Movement. If you want seafood, coffee or soft drinks, you'll have to go elsewhere, they are not on the menu here.
