This bar/restaurant at the Sant'Angelo tip, near the commune of Serrara Fontana, is known mostly for its fish. It is, after all, perched with highly desirable sea views at Ischia island's southernmost rock outcropping. Out front there's a lot of patio seating: it looks like the deck of the Titanic washed up here. And in addition to serving fish and pizza, there's a stocked bar at the back that also serves espresso. Using an older four-group lever La San Marco 85-LEVA-4, they pull shots with an even, relatively thinner darker brown crema. It has a bold flavor of herbal pungency, some wood, and just a touch of tobacco without being too smoky. A little pricey at ?1.20 at the bar, but not surprising given the remote location. While it was rated a respectable three tazzine and one chicco in the 2013 Bar d'Italia, for what ever reasons it entirely dropped out of the 2014 edition.
