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.

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

The food was good in parts, the main course was simple fresh fish, hard to get wrong. The octopus starter was very chewy, I never leave food I'm paying for in a restaurant, but did leave this. dessert was good. The background music was terrible, cover versions of songs I wouldn't listen to by the original artists and would get... More

Great food, atmosphere and value. Based on the recommendation of our Pompeii tour guide, we enjoyed our authentic Italian lunch with you.

Outstanding pasta and great wine selection. Every dish we ordered was terrific. Reservations are recommended, however if you get there when they first open you can get a table.
