My wife and I used this restaurant several times, it has a good location on the seafront. The prices are reasonable, the food is good with a large fresh fish selection. It is a little touristy of course, but the upside is they speak several languages. The owner is an avid Napoli supporter, which is amusing if there is game... More

As per other reviewers we benefited from a hearty welcome and a gratis plate of bruschetta. A sharing plate of fried fish made a hefty starter which was quite tasty, though the fish were all snapper. Going for a pizza each made the main course quite straightforward. Both were good and freshly baked. The restaurant has a decent wine list.... More

We have been there today and can say that there is a problem with the service. The problem is not in chief or waiters but rather the managers/owners. Despite the rather good taste of food we did not feel comfortable. We were the only ones in the restaurant on Friday evening! And probably the main problem was that the owners... More

We went here for lunch on our last day. We both had a caprese salad and the spaghetti alle vongole because those are local dishes we can't match at home. The caprese was excellent because the mozzarella da bufala was fresh and the tomatoes delicious. The spaghetti dish had far more vongole than one usually gets. I think the dish... More

They might as well just sell lemons. They push everything that contains lemons on you. I was forced to order a lemon desert just to shut the waiter up. I ordered a pizza because I didn't know it was a seafood restaurant. And I hate fish. To be fair to me, there were no indication of this until you go... More

While staying in Maiori we decided to have dinner one night at La Vela which is located right across from the beach. We were warmly welcomed and were given a nice table by the window. Complimentary aperitifs, bruschetta and seaweed puffs were brought to the table for us to enjoy while we browsed the menu. The service was attentive and... More
