We, a whole family of 19 people, spent an evening at this place. We had a really good time with excellent Italian homemade food, served by really good service and personality. The location and the sunset view made it perfect, and we will definatly come back!

I was surprised by the delicious craft beer, it... 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

Based on a review we found on Trip Advisor, we made the decision that while we were finally able to visit the Cilento region of Italy, we would make it a point to go to a restaurant called Il Parnaso in Castellabate. That is a decision we will never regret. First you are greeted by the most gracious and friendly... More

Il Parnaso was definitely a highlight of our culinary experience of Italy. Costantino & Gerardina, the owners made you feel like family. The excellent service was beyond compare to other places we visited. They prepare all their meals with homemade pasta and fresh vegetables from their own garden. The Fusili and Ravioli were our favorites. And the view of the... More
