will not be coming back here

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

I last visited this restaurant some 8 years ago, I was very pleased then and decided to try again on my recent visit, things have changed as the courtyard now has a sliding roof in case of rain but much remains the same for the good. Firstly the staff are very pleasant efficient English speaking and helpful, in fact quite... More

This tiny restaurant has and typical old style ambiente with it's very own flair. For us it washthe second visit after three years we visited last time Pompeji and it is still the same atmosphere we like a lot in this region around Napoli. Don't expect some highbrow cuisine, it is more like "Mama Italia" is cooking for you in... More

There was a nicely dressed man that greeted us, but that was the only thing that was nice. They sat us next to the door that connects the restaurant to it's neighbor, then decided to open the door and carry food over my head until I decided to move the table myself. Service was terrible. My husband's food came out... More
