We were staying in pompei for 6 days and came here 3 times. The calamari is fantastic and they are very friendly. Best thing about the food is that they don't make it poncey. If you want calamari you get it and not rabbit food.

Had an excellent meal here tonight. I had spaghetti and my friend had Angus beef slices. The food tasted fresh and was cooked to our taste. We would eat here again.

From Australia we were made to feel welcome & relaxed. Very friendly people & lovely setting. We had 3 courses and every dish was exceptional. The chef & waiter conversed warmly with us despite the language differences. We highly recommend this restaurant - it deserves 6 stars.

We had researched this restaurant on Trip Advisor before commencing our visit to Italy and had included it on our list of possibilities, and indeed on our arrival in Pompei had been told how good it was. Having visited an excellent venue the previous night, on entering Garum we unfortunately did not feel the same vibes. The restaurant felt a... More

Recommended by our hotel and rightly so. We were served by Salvatore, who was both attentive and knowledgable. We were worried that our 3 kids wouldn't enjoy anything, but the chef, who we later found out is also the owner, made a simple and very delicious pasta off menu. Relaxed and well fed. Perfect. Gracia!

I don't speak italian at all even though I have an italian passport lol, but I asked a signore that helped us (my aunt and my cousin) to park in the piazza, where could we eat good food? He... More

Was such tasty food we visited twice at the beginning of March. Salvatore helped us to choose from the large choice of pasta and the red wine was the best I had in Italy. Would recommend the three starters dish and the chocolate fondant pudding for dessert. In all a very pleasant experience and good value for money.

You feel welcome, very friendly service. And the locals go there, too, which is a good sign. The food is very good and well presented: Be guided by the waiter's advice and you discover real specialities, and above all super delicious desserts. A place we returned to three times, feeling at home in Pompeii.

We stumbled across this restaurant while walking around Pompeii. While the service was very good and the staff very patient, the food was a let down. It is average for the most part, with one or two slightly above average dishes. The dessert was far too sweet. Imagine drowning in sugar and condensed milk (that was the taste). It is... More
