About Trattoria il Focolare
Green is the colour of the island, thanks to the vineyards, the rich local prodcution, with aromatic herbs, but especially fro the green tuff, the stone of the island. The heritage of the island is the family d’Ambra that dediced to value it, establishing with the blue sky and sea a special gastronomy linked to the fish. All began when Riccardo d'Ambra, his wife Loretta and the numerous family created a local in competition with other ones. Nowadays the kitchen is managed by Agostino and Francesco, and mum Loretta, while hall is the reign of Silvia and the sisters Luciana and Mariateresa, Antonella and Cristiana. Finally Riccardo, the master of many enterprises.

Our dishes
Among the antipasti, we choose the crostini with wild garlic, potatoes shape with spices and slices of fried aubergines seasoned with tomato sauce and grated Parmesan cheese baked in the oven. The first courses include paccheri with garlic, ravioli with endive and cooked wine, wild mezzanelli, with tunz’ e paparastiell’, or bean soup. The second courses, different meat like lamb's knuckle, tagliate cooked on stone of Agnus and Razza Piemontese and on request, the rabbit in hole, maybe with seafennel side dish ( chrittimum marittimum, rises up along the marine coasts). As desserts we recommend the crème Brule and chocolate soufflé with cream, apples bread with lavender and rosemary.

Dug into one of the green areas of the island of Ischia, on the hill ofg Cretaio, the trattoria is easy to reach by car, it has private parking for guests, welcoming but often unable to host all the guests, reachable by bus, line 16 to link Cretaio to the town centre of Casamicciola, unfortunately during the winter the rides end at 19,30 pm, while in summer late at the night.
