Only busy restaurant in Pompeii

After scouting out Garum and Add'u Mimi and finding them both empty, we chose Bettola. We got the only table left. If diners were voting with their feet, this restaurant was clearly the winner in Pompeii. And we agree. We had a wonderful dinner. By the time we left, even their sidewalk tables... read more

Our driver (Marco) recommended this restaurant to us for lunch and I have to say he has great taste! As he lives in Pompeii we respected his recommendation and we found it comfortable and stylish. My husband and I shared a Sea Bass and our two children ordered the steak. They thoroughly enjoyed it and considering this was an early... More

Excellent Italian cuisine, on request they even prepared a special vegetarian dish (one which was not on the menu). Attentive staff. Was not 100 percent convinced of the wine recommendation, which was - in my opinion - based primarily on the price. Seating outside is a bit close to the road and traffic noise but overall I would still definitely... More

Excellent food, not ordinary as you would get in majority of restaurants. Fresh and tasty. We had mainly see food and it was all good. Reasonable prices compared to what you get. As it got late and the kids were tired and unwilling to walk, we asked for help with ordering a taxi. What the restaurant provided was a lift... More

We went there after the visit to the ruins because we wanted to avoid any touristy eatery. The restaurant is located in a sidestreet between the main piazza and the train station. We ordered a mixed salad and pasta with ragu as starters, then I ordered grilled steak (with grilled vegetables as side dish) while my girlfriend took the fish... More

Best restaurant that we ate at our entire 3 weeks in Italy. Had an amazing tasting menu. You had a choice of fish, or meat. There were several courses, and every course had 3 different things to taste. Our favorite place! We all had a different dessert, too!

We went with a group of eight to this charming restaurant after touring the ruins. They greeted us with a wonderful assortment of fish appetizers. We had four choices of pasta ... All delicious! Then grilled fish 'from the sea ' with lovely vegetables. Very fresh and tasty. Staff could have not been more accommodating and wanted to be sure... More

This restaurant is very close to the Hotel Diana and was one of our favourites during a week in the Campania region. The food was imaginative, sophisticated, beautifully presented and very tasty. Everything seemed very fresh. They do a plate of mixed starters which were delicious and allow you to taste several different starters. We each tried a different pasta... More
