I have had the pleasure of visiting the Il Parnaso restaurant a lot of times, as I happened to live in this beautiful area of Italy for a lot of years. The excellent quality of the freshly made food, home made pasta and the season`s tasty vegetables, together with the friendliness of the (English speaking) owner Costantino makes this restaurant...

We went to Santa Maria in September for our wedding and chose to have a family dinner at Il Pernaso the night before the wedding. We were about 20 guests, and the menu was set in advance after recommendations from the owner, Costantino. When we arrived we were served prosecco on the terrace where we enjoyed the wonderful views towards... More

The first night we ordered a 3- 4 course dinner, where the main course was lasagna. It was the best lasagna we had ever tasted,... More

We were brought to Parnaso by a local and it was fantastic. The views are amazing! The food is simple and uncomplicated but made with love, excellently prepared and the tastes are fantastic. The fusilli is home made, all the dishes are made with the freshest of ingredients. The house wine is home made and comes in a jug. This... More

Read some of the over enthusiastic reviews here and thought we would try it. Basically it was the typical cilento food served in a pleasant way. I think the talk of great views a bit OTT. Better views nearer the sea. We had lunch under a hot canopy. Service nothing special. A bit off the beaten track. I'm not sure... More

We had a magic evening in this fantastic place. The sunset is breathtaking and indescribable beautiful. The view over San Marco, the castle of Castellabate and with Capri in the horizon is like an amazing painting. The food and the wines are simply excellent. The owner Costatino is the perfect host. You simply can not miss this restaurant if you... More
