So the experience at this restaurant started out ok but didn't end very well. They brought out small meatballs as appetizers and they tasted really good. Next when we tried ordering 2 bottles of wine, none of our choices were available but we got a recommendation based on what we chose (more expensive of course). Next came the appetizers and... More

The atmosphere was nice, and at first we thought our waiter was helpful. When we placed our order, he could speak English perfectly, walking us through the menu, and kept insisting we get the house special. We did not want that much food and placed a similar order of smaller proportions. To our surprise, the portions we received were awfully... More

The food was good and quality too. It s not a cheap restaurant but not very expensive either. We sat on the terrace as it was hot weather. A good 20 minutes walk from Pompei main train station. Service was good! I recommend it!

When we arrived there was only one other table occupied and the waiter wanted to put us next to them just outside the kitchen. Not happy when we asked for another table and kept us waiting for a long time while he served locals who arrived after us. Had intended to withhold tip but food was good and waitress really... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and told us we would be picked up at 7:30 and taken to dinner. The car finally arrived at 7:45 and we were at the restaurant about 5 minutes later and immediately seated at a nice outside table. Then the wait began.... Other people were given menus and drinks but we just waited. Finally at... More

We had a very enjoyable meal (although very expensive meal) at this TripAdvisor recommended restaurant in September 2014. The menu is typical southern Italian with some twists. I had the pasta flavoured with coffee, pistachio and sundried tomato which I’d not heard of before and enjoyed very much. We also had the fish house special which was prepared in a... More

My wife and I were looking for a good restaurant after visiting the excavations at Pompeii and we chose this one because of the score in TripAdvisor. We fully agree with the positive comments. The food is delicious and creative, the ambiance is great and the price reasonable for this quality. Do not hesitate to book there.

This restaurant was near our hotel (Hotel Diana) and we had lunch here upon the suggestion of the staff. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious and plentiful. The red house wine complimented our pasta dishes quite well.

This was recommended as the best restaurant in Pompeii, clearly the reviewers had not visited any other restaurant in this lovely city. The waiter was clearly being paid on commission because all he suggested was the most expensive. The wine he was trying to push was the most expensive red on the list but one of our party knew his...
