Family meal

Chose to eat here because it was busy and seemed to be used by many Italians. 5 of us each had a pasta meal / pizza and all enjoyed it.

We had a fabulous dinner at La Vela. Fresh ansjovis for entrée and various dishes for main course,all nicely prepared. The owner of the restaurant was visiting us and really enjoyed the Grappa we sent him as a token of appreciation. I can only recommend a visit.

We're quite regular visitors to Maiori but had never been here and we decided to try it after being beckoned and called in by a member of staff outside. We sat down were given menus... ...and then completely ignored for 15 minutes. Now scrolling down the other reviews I can see that this has happened before, and the restaurant itself... More

Looking for a place for dinner and my wife being a sucker for a man with a menu we decided to dine there! When we first arrived the staff out numbered the patrons but it soon began to busy up. We were given a choice of table and it was a very nice meal. We had two courses and both... More

We hate it when restaurants take advantage of people who speak different languages. The waiter at this restaurant, despite our best efforts, managed to force down our throats a fried fish appetizer. We told him repeatedly we did not want it, but he brought it anyway and suggested that it came as part of what we ordered. We told him... More

We visited three times in two weeks - each time our meal was excellent and the prices are fair. Service is pleasant and welcoming. Great spot to people watch if you can get a table at the open window.

My wife & I visited this very busy restaurant whilst on holiday in Maiori. Service very good, food good ( if you like fish, this is the place for you--if you don't, as in my case, the choice is a bit more limited). Not expensive, all dishes served reasonably promptly. Only one issue--we had to find our own table (... More

Honestly I could spend ages giving a blow by blow account of how awful our visit to this restaurant was, but I really can't be bothered to waste the effort on the typing. Suffice to say the food was terrible and the service even worse. As for the atmosphere, I would suggest you would only want to go there if... More
