Amazing food in an unlikely place. I couldn't find anything better in Rome, Florence, or Venice for this price range. Everything we tried was wonderfully prepared. The wait staff was good but when it gets busy you do have to go get their attention. Overall, very highly recommended.

While the service here was excellent, the food was not. One of the waiters was very vigilant that if a fork fell, they were quick to replace it. They also accomodated our request for vegan rissotto, with olive oil and peppers. However, our experience with the ravioli turned out not so great. We asked for vegetarian pomodoro sauce and the...

Had an end of holiday evening meal in this restaurant. Sat inside as no room outside, it was very clean and the staff friendly. Staff were friendly and the service was very good. We all ate different seafood meals and they were all absolutely lovely, and the bill was very reasonable. Definitely recommend for an evening meal.

Nice environment and great service. Finding sympathetic and patient staff in Italy is not easy, so it was an Oasis. Food was delicious. Try the well known "Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio" the regions classic wine,

We found out about this restaurant through TripAdvisor and what a wonderful choice. Excellent food, classy place, good service and surrounded only by locals at lunch time. Great value for money. If you arrive to pompeii by car it is 10 min from the ruines which is enough to get away from the crowds.

We were amazed at what a tasty meal we had here, and for comparatively little. We enjoyed a parmigiana starter, risotto and salmon... all just wonderful. Highly recommended!
