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. The dishes are prepared using ingredients grown by the family just below the restaurant on the hillside that eventually runs down to the sea (albeit a couple of kilometres away!) To sit on the balcony and watch... More

I've reviewed this restaurant before and was there again recently... the food is as good as ever - if not better! I'm really surprised that it isn't listed as the number one restaurant in the Castellabate on Tripadvisor as i've eaten at most and the food at Parnaso is the best by far!
