We dived in here because it was pouring with rain - which meant that there were few other customers, but even so service was patchy and we got the impression that the waiters were busy doing something out back (watching football?) Had we read earlier Trip Advisor reviews I would probably have gone for the seafood rather than the pizza... More

We were trying to spend time in a restaurant waiting for our 11:30 train, decided on stopping here for a drink, we then spoke to the owner sweetest guy ever, offered us this dish on the house which was a combination I d never have had and it was awesome, try their salmon salad, it's the best.

Had to hang around until the restaurants opened at 19.30 which may sound early but not when you were up at 04.00!! This despite a couple with their doors open and staff in situ an hour previously!! However, this was lucky for me as it gave me chance to find this excellent pizzeria ristorante. Warmly welcomed and with great wifi,... More

Clean and inviting, just across the street from the water. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly and charming. The owner of the restaurant talked to us and shook our hands. Not expensive, definitely would suggest to friends.

We just walked into Pinocchio's and had no idea that we were walking into one of Salerno's best! Our group from California was treated like family by Rudolfo and his staff. The food was unbelievable. During our two week trip to Italy, this was one of our favorite restaurants. Rudolfo takes great pride in his restaurant and treats all his... More

Definitely it was worth... More

When you have to ask 3 different servers for another bottle of water it is an issue. They seem.to show attention at the start and then forget about you in between servings. Also, review the bill as our original bill did not consider our selected meal deal and then they gave us a new bill that was 50 euro less............50... More
