This was a wonderful restaurant experience for the three of us who had dinner there. The food was fantastic and the service was exceptional. The staff was engaging, interactive and informative. I doubt a better restaurant exists in Pompei. When we asked for directions back to our hotel the owner drove us there.

Having done our homework on Trip Advisor this restaurant was on our list of places to consider whilst staying in Pompei. We had tried to book online in advance reading that it was small and popular but had not managed to find an email address. We popped in a couple of hours before we wanted to visit (in March) and...

On Sunday, we were searching for a decent place to eat in Pompeii - Il Principe looked interesting but appears to be closed. Wandering around we found La Bettola - and what a treat. We'd hoped for food which was both inventive and inspirational, but had not real expectation of finding it. So it was a remarkably pleasant surprise to... More

This seemed like a modest local restaurant - we chose it because it was so close to our hotel, but the food and service were both tremendous - it's a definite reason to stay in Pompeii rather than just visit. There were a lot of local specialities, a terrific local winelist, a lot for vegetarians and real charm and style... More

In five days in Italy this was undoubtedly the best meal we had. The quality and choice was superb and seasonal and the choice of wines extensive, with good recommendations from the waiter as to which would match our food choices best. Despite this being a five star quality restaurant the prices were only average. A great meal in a... More

Our family dined at La Bettola del Gusto during a visit to Pompeii in mid-December. This place deserves its positive reputation. The food was quite good, the service friendly and professional. The atmosphere (and prices) are a little more upscale than Add'u Mimi, another excellent Pompeii restaurant. The menu is short but has enough variety to suit most tastes. Decent... More

The food was delicious. The waitress and waiters were very friendly. We heard all of the other customers speaking Italian, so we knew that the locals liked it. We had a cheese plate with some amazing local cheeses and a great eggplant involtini, along with a wonderful pasta with fresh anchioves and fennel and my wife had a pasta with... More

We stayed at Pompeii for two nights. Our first night meal at Del Gusto was superb, the fillet steak and swordfish were both outstanding. We had starters, main, dessert and wine and the price and service were very good. We went back the second night and the service and food was just as good, both nights we left a good... More
