Great surprise in our visit to Pompei. Very well located close to the cathedral, elegant and warm service and the food simply outstanding with use of local products in a top leve cuisine . Superb wine list. This is a must in Pompei, but also in the Napoli region.

My wife and I came here on our way from the Amalfi Coast to Naples. Our hotel concierge highly recommended this place as he said that both the service and food would not disappoint. In short, he was right as this was the best seafood lunch experience we had after a week of eating at higher end restaurants on the... More

We went here as the Hotel had told us it was very good, and indeed it was excellent, but cannot help think that location of the restaurant, and the way it appears to be presenting itself is a little pretentious. The most expensive night we had, my wife sent her white wine back as it tasted a little "light". The... More

Flowers in the butter? Tomatoes that were green? In Italy? In June? Restaurant was empty - not surprising.

The only good restaurant we could find in Pompeii. Nicely laid out with attentive service but limited menu. We could not find anything on the menu we wished to eat, but were offered as an alternative Steak or Veal - both of which very good. Makes me wonder why these were not on the menu in the first place ?

What a pleasant surprise! Although eating out in Campania is usually good, this restaurant stands out above the rest, which in a town such as Pompei by necessity caters mainly for large tourist crowds expecting low cost traditional fare. The standards of food preparation, the sumptuous environment with paintings from the owner's family, the carefully selected wine list and the... More
