Great restaurant

Amazing food and fantastic service! Would definitely recommend it. Try the mixed Machiavelli starter and the melon soup for dessert.

Excellent food, nice location to sit outside. Not overpriced, very good value for money. Very good and polite service. The right place to be, if you want to avoid the ordinary Pizza restaurants.

I have never written a review on trip advisor but I thought I should for this. Absolutely fantastic. Food was amazing and waiter was super friendly. Complementary food just kept on coming, 2x entres, homemade limoncello etc afterwards all on the house. Even the chef came and introduced himself to us as we were having the main course. Well priced.... More

It was our last night of a 14 day Italian adventure. We had been to Bologna, Venice, Tuscany, Manarola in the Cinque Terre, Ischia and Sorrento. Every spot had its beauty, its gracious hosts, its yumm-arama gelato and eye-rolling entrees. So for our finale in Italy, we ended up in Pompei to tour the ruins and hop a very early... More

We stayed in a B&B opposite this side street restaurant and ate here for the two nights that we stayed. The service, attention and food were all top class. We were offered an array of tasters from the chef alongside our choice of food. Everything we had was of a high standard. Highly recommend a visit to Il Machiavelli.

If however you are willing to go off the normal tourist trail and try something different you will not be disappointed. The service was amazing, both... More

The ambient, the music, the staff, the food... Everything was perfect. The waiters gave us total attention, explaining the menu and helping us with kindness and courtesy. So far is the best food we have tasted on Italy.
