The food was beautiful, fresh fish and the bruschetta was delicious. The icing on the cake, pardon the pun was the lemon cake. Amazing. We left feeling full and very happy. Will definitely go back for another meal :)

I'm very surprised to see the poor reviews of this restaurant as I thought the food was delicious. It doesn't look much from the outside and we had initially dismissed the place, however, the owner of our B&B (Sergio at Casa a Mare) recommended the place as serving home cooked Italian food at a fair price. We had lots of... More

Went for lunch and did enjoy the view and found it quite entertaining to watch one sister trying to drum up business, although it's usually not the best sign as good restaurant advertise themselves. While the location is great, I can't say the same for the food, unfortunately. I only had pasta but since I make a better and tastier... More

We went there tonight after hearing of a recommendation from someone on a trip to Vesuvius. The food was edible just, but swimming in oil and salt. Before I had finished my starter my main turned up and we then had to shuffle plates to make room. They only do an unnamed house wine. Then we were covered in flys... More

We felt a slight pressure to eat here having already passed it up at lunch time and then in the evening the lady (Angry Lady) standing outside thrust menus into our hands and gave us some spurious story about a recommendation from Jamie Oliver. My wife's lasagne came, suspiciously quickly, looking like it had been microwaved on a plate. My... More

I cannot recommend highly enough that you avoid this horrible little place. The only good thing going for it is the view. We ordered 2 small beers, a sandwich and an omelette, which came to 20 Euro. We were also charged for the stale bread that had been left on our table! My omelette was revolting and had been deep... More

After reading reviews on here we walked steadily past on a number of occasions, what a mistake. We stood and talked to the sister's and found them to be not as nasty as portrayed. Fears allayed we had a light lunch of a tuna salad (fresh and generous ) along with a coke and 3 beers for a total of... More

Worst meal in Italy. A last minute decision to eat here, and what a mistake. Yes, the fish was probably fresh, but tasteless. A companion had pasta, disappointing. Another companion had fried shrimp. Whole shrimp, not breaded was fried, by the time she picked them apart to get to the meat, barely a shot glass amount of shrimp. Not inexpensive,... More
