We spent a wonderful two nights in Santa Maria di Castellabate over New Year's and the best meal we had was at IL Parnaso about 6km away up the hill. Well worth the drive with fresh pastas and great meats; all at a fair price. The view is to die for. If you don't speak Italian just Google the... read more

Everytime I visit this restaurant I realize how greatful the pasta is. The view is so fashinating and every dish served is really tasty. I strongly recommend the handmade pasta, especially fusilli with ragù and gnocchi with courgettes flowers because they could be the best pasta dish you will ever eat in your whole life. The service is great too:... More

We have eaten here several times now and it is definitely the best food in the area! Constantino only buys the best ingredients available, if he hasn't grown or reared them himself. His wife Geraldino is a fantastic cook and virtually everything that comes out of the kitchen is the best example of its genre. If you are staying on... More

The setting is outstanding overlooking Castellabate and the coastal areas of San Marco & Santa Maria de Castellabate as well as the entire bay of Salerno with the sun setting over Capri. It is worth the trip just for the view but you would be missing out if you did not eat here. Constantino and Geraldina provide luscious local rustic... More

The most magnificent view only surpassed by the food and service. Italy at its very best. Authentic cuisine, with pasta made on the premises, with everything else sourced locally, daily.

This authentic restaurant produced some of the greatest meals we had on our trip throughout Italy. The restaurant offers stunning views of the water and valleys. The owner Costantino makes you feel like part of the family. Also, the best lasagna ever!!! Cannot wait to eventually go back.

We were here for a pre-wedding family meal, and the outdoor terrace comfortably seated 40+, with some of the most breathtaking views. The food was delicious and authentic, and fairly priced, with excellent service!

I have been to this restaurant many times over many years and am still amazed at how wonderful the food and welcome is.
