Lunchtime – and a belly that makes it clear that food is the best choice now. We are in Ischia and just finished a whole morning in the beautiful Giardini La Mortella. Very relaxing and very refreshing as we spent much time just sitting in the shade of big trees and in front of many ponds.
Passing the beach I thought that the best place would be on the beach. And I remembered a nice little restaurant right on the shore: Il Fortino. I hoped it would be still there. It’s a long time ago I came the last time for lunch to this restaurant.
Il Fortino is a wonderful little restaurant that is built on a tuff rock directly in the water. It is a perfect place to sit in the shade, looking out on the crystal clear water and the beautiful silhouette of Forio. Nothing more relaxing.
The food is various. Of course everywhere in Ischia is the seafood the first, but who doesn’t like fish or other seafood has always choices like meat, zingara (bread with tomatoes, lettuce, mozzarrella and ham, toasted), bean soup and much more.
My lovely man likes ice-cold water with a lot of ice cubes. No problem, just to ask.
We had a wonderful lunch. I had of course seafood and salad. My man opted for something more ‘male’: sausages and really yummy french fries and some beans soup.
We stayed a little longer just to enjoy the shade, the breeze and the crystal clear water. I loved the view on Forio, its Torrione, symbol of the town, and the white Soccorso church. I loved to feel at home again.
