We were so delighted with our meal here- beautiful complex flavours, a menu that was different from other restaurants we'd dined at in Italy, and the most wonderful storytelling by our host to inform us of what we were eating/drinking. Highly recommend!

We went to this restaurant last night at the recommendation of a local. The menu was unusual but we were so pleased we went. The food was excellent, the ambience perfect and we enjoyed speaking with the owner who is clearly passionate about food, drink and his regional capital of Napoli. Give it a try - you won't regret it.... More

This would have to be one of the finest wine and food experiences so far. The food and wine is sourced from the Campania region. That is a cultural experience in itself. Yuri our host helped us with our choices and it his passion for the region is paramount. Jam and local honey were the perfect match for the various... More

We had a superb meal here. The menu is in Italian only but we were offered a variety of local Italian dishes and wine which we loved. Highly recommended

My husband and I were in Pompei for one night, and our wonderful host Martina at La Casa di Plinio B&B (if you're going to Pompei this is undoubtedly one of the best places you can stay - check it out on tripadvisor.com) suggested we eat at one of her favorite restaurants - Vincanto. It is not in a touristy... More

Do not go to Vincanto expecting pizza or pasta. Except for the soup and the bruschetta, none of the food here requires heating. On offer are cheeses, sausages, salads, and giant-sized bruschetta with many interesting toppings (for example porcini mushrooms, or yellow tomatoes and oil). The wine list is very long and the prices are low -- for one bottle... More

Very nice place, good food (slow food based, authentic products from the area) and a splendid selection of wine. The service was really great, very kind, personalized, they truly care about the individual preferences of their clients dedicating time and attention to make sure you're enjoying the food and wine. So different from all the touristic places in Pompeii, it... More

We came to Vincanto on a Sunday evening, and the place didn't seem open, so we started to walk away, when the door opened. We were welcomed in by the owner, and offered a table. We were the only ones in the restaurant, and while I thought someone else will sure show up, no one did. So, we had the... More

This restaurant is nothing like any restaurant I ever visited? The owner Yuri told us that it is a wine and beer place with regional foods to match. He insisted we taste just about everything on his menu whether we ordered the dish or not. He sent us so much food on the house that we had trouble finishing despite... More
