Both the food and service at this restaurant is amazing! The waiters are very informed about the food and are happy to share this information which really adds to your dining experience. If you want to get away from pizza and pasta and try a few things a little out of the ordinary this is the place to go! Whilst... More

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.

Great and inventive food, perfect service, nice atmosphere on a discrete terrasse : just one of our best meal so far ! You must try the rice with black cuttlefish : once in... More

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.
