Really welcoming people from what we could gather was a father and son setup. Superb starter of salt and pepper prawns and a sort of aubergine and tomato ratatouille with mozzarella on top. Delicious! Main was frutti di mare and taglioni vongolé, both with freshly made pasta and to die for! For dessert, the father brought us his home made... More

We happened upon this wonderful restaurant which is down a lane-way in Salerno. Our meals were delicious and they use only the best fresh produce. Succulent prawns and calamari grilled to perfection, tender zucchini flowers stuffed with wonderful italian soft cheese and the best tomato pasta. The owner was extremely helpful and courteous with our choices and we will definitely... More

We came a group of 15 people, including children. The welcome and service was warm and perfect. The food was fresh and exellent. It was Italian food and hospitality at its best. The restaurant is a must place to visit. We will be back for sure.

We had an excellent lunch at this small restaurant tucked away in a small street off the worldly Corso Vittorio Emanuele. Luckily, we made a reservation before lunch service started, as numerous parties had to be turned away from the full restaurant. The owner was accommodating and very professional, the English speaking waiter absolutely superb and most helpful with recommendations... More

Went here through TA as it's just off the main shopping street. What a find! Excellent food, very friendly staff and not expensive. We had lunch on the terrace but there's also plenty of tables inside next the open kitchen - you could almost join the chef if you like. We would especially recommend a mix of antipasti and the...

We had an early start the next morning so booked for 7.30pm which is a bit earlier than they usually start serving. Excellent service - no set menu to look at, they say what they have picked up fresh from the market that day & what they will be making with it. If you love simple but fantastic fresh food... More

Salvatore and his brother serve up great meals. Fresh food prepared with skill and flair. Salvatore's English is excellent and he took the time to offer some excellent suggestions for an ovo-lacto vegetarian. Located on a quiet side street. Decor is very tasteful and everything is exceptionally clean, including the kitchen. We sat outside and could watch through the kitchen... More
