Looked inviting on the outside

This place appealed to us because it looked so inviting and it is nice enough but they obviously cater for the tour buses rather than just couples like ourselves.

What an awful food stop in a lovely city. No atmosphere, scruffy looking (once you get past what looks like quite an inviting entrance). Slow service, I ordered a side dish that came out long after the main was finished. My partner had finished his food long before mine arrived and the food was just bland, limp, awful. A travesty...

We stayed in Napoli 1 week. We had sightseeing and trying Italian cuisine of course! About La Vinicola restaurant we have read in a few places, about local family tratoria with she boss (mamma) and great local dishes. So after 4 hours of walking in Pompei ruins we decided to go there. Walk 20 minutes from local train station (taxi... More

Soggy cool lasagne which left an unpleasant feeling. Bog standard olives. This was not a nice meal at all (lunchtime). Hope others have a better experience as it is not that cheap either.

This restaurant is very simple and seams that an italian family take care of the bussiness. The food is good but the best thing was the treatment and service. The waiter was very nice with us and suggested a nice menu. The price is good, the things are not expensive and the wine is good too (wine of the house).... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant (the first visit was around 2 years previously). We were slightly underwhelmed on our first visit but decided to give it another try. The tables outside and at the end of the corridor look appealing, but we were guided towards a large side room which isn't quite so atmospheric. The office desk... More

Lets start with the table, it must have just emptied because it was still dirty from the guests before us, it's busy, I understand but not to clean it off before you give us our menu? I should have left there and then but I didn't. You took our order for drinks and still the table has not been cleaned,... More

We visited here during our stay In Pompeii in spite of the reviews we had read. We were tired and hungry and it looked and smelled inviting. We were ushered into "la giardino" - the large back room with tree branches covering the top. It was beautiful. The waiter was kind and attentive, giving us advice on our selections. The... More

This restaurant looks fantastic and the smartly dressed waiter looks the part but that was pretty much it for our authentic experience. We were ushered into a large backroom away from the interesting busy 'authentic' atmosphere. We were given a crumpled menu in English and realised the only other table in the room was also occupied by tourists. The service... More

Going to la Vinicola was a bit like that Italian Restaurant scene in The Lady and the Tramp. it may not be the poshest nor the grandest restaurant, but being in a small alley between two buildings certainly added to the charm of this place. Don't expect haute cuisine. What they serve in that restaurant, always with a smile, is... More
