We gave this restaruant a visit as it came highly recommended and was literally around the corner from the hotel. The food and wine was lovely. More expensive than other places in Pompei but still very reasonable. My only gripe was the service - it was a bit slow and they really didn't appear to be that busy. However I'd... More

This was another restaurant I kept having to go back to in Pompeii. They specialize in seafood and it was so good each time I went I never tried anything else. The wine selection is good as well.

We went to La Bettola del Gusto on our first night in Pompei, having wandered looking for somewhere to eat seafood. They fit us in and we had the most marvellous meal, great value, beautifully cooked and served with a smile. Best of all was the wine suggested by the staff. The local Falanghina has to be the best white... More

We found this restaurant highranked in Tripadvisor in Pompei. And a high ranking is totally right. Centrally located in Pompei. Very nice personal. Most important: good italian kitchen with more fantasy than most places we visited. At last a limoncello for free. But as best surprise we found both raiwaystations to Napels closed at 10 o'clock. The owner brought us... More

Visited La Bettola twice during a recent stay in Pomeii, our hotel recommended the restaurant. Amazing choice of meals, and drinks. Excellent service. A bit off the beaten track, so not overpriced like normal "tourist" restaurants. One of the best meals I've ever eaten, throughly enjoyed every mouthful. Would happily reccomend and would visit again. You will not be disapointed.

We visited this restaurant twice whilst staying in Pompei and can safely say it is the best restaurant in Pompei. The staff were attentive but not overbearing and the Price extremely reasonable. The first night we went I had the Bresola which was absolutely devine and the selection of grilled fish. The fish was slathered in a beautiful buttery sauce... More

La Bettola del Gusto offers an attractive space, a professional wait staff, and very good food. It seems to cater to a local clientele. We had a very pleasant evening here and would certainly return. Our granddaughter is celiac and found many good options on the menu.

I visited Pompei for business reasons and I had 6 meals out of 8 in this restaurant!! Just amazing, my opinion is that if a restaurant is so good there s no reason to change , just explore the whole menu ! I had linguine crab, linguine seafood, pig steak, seafood plates of any kind. Everything was excellent and fresh.... More
