Great choice for celiacs!

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

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.

This was the place recommended by everyone--and it was worth it. Definitely a step above the pizza and pasta places in price, but the food was terrific.

This IS the best restaurant in Pompeii by 10 million billion miles. Everything we ate, drank, the whole experience .. just absolutely perfect in every way. The service ... well, that's the largest tip I've ever left. It was just flawless. The best birthday meal ever. They could make so much extra money as hospitality consultants. I could have cried...

A pleasant change from the usual pasta and pizzas. A touch of "gourmet " cuisine but not too much. The dishes were tasty and innovative. The service a bit chaotic ...hard to imagine what it would be like with a full house !

We went to this restaurant toward the end of our month in Italy. At first we were a bit hesitant, it being in a smaller town and near the rail station. However, it was certainly one of the best three meals we had on our trip. Don't come here expecting the usual fare of pizza and pasta. Although the food... More
