After our Pompeii tour my family and I stopped here for lunch. It is hard to add more to the descriptions other reviewers have already provided because our experience was the same. The food and wine were sensational in a great setting.

We went here after a tour of Pompeii, it's conveniently located just outside of the entrance to Pompeii. Food was excellent, salad portions are huge (you could share) and great setting. The free wifi - you have to get a code from the waiter/waitress and sometimes they tell you it's not working because they are too lazy to get you... More

I have to start by saying we were taken here by a friend who knows Gioacchino, but that hasn't coloured my review. From the moment I walked in hot and bothered by a long walk round Pompeii, I was made to feel like a welcome guest. Gioacchino came out of the kitchen to meet us - clearly knowing Giovanna helps!...

Our driver took us here for lunch on the way from Pompei to Sorrento. It was a lovely setting for a restaurant with gardens and areas to lounge. The food was a little pricey for lunch but the quality was definitely there. The eggplant app was wonderful as well as all the sample plate offerings. I would really like to... More

The food is expensive but the quality is quite good. Not up to the standards of Rome but well worth a visit.

I would recommend taking the short walk out of town to visit this restaurant. The food and service is fantastic. It's just a shame that this is not in town so it was not that busy. The prices are quite high so it is definitely a treat rather than an every day meal. The garden outdoor seating area is extra... More

This restaurant was close to our hotel so we tried it. When we came in, we immediatly were impressed with the atmosphere & design of the restaurant. You can get an apero in the garden, on nice little benches that are very romomantic. Then we move to the "dinnerhall" part of the garden were we had a very good 4-course... More

We agree with all the other very positive reviews. Although this restaurant is a little way away from the crowded centre of Pompeii, we easily walked there. It is a secluded garden oasis amongst a semi rural/light industrial area. The service was friendly and warm, and the set menu (4 courses, €35 each) was exceptional. All the courses were fresh,...
