Desperate to get you in, even when we was waiting to be seated at the restaurant next door! 6 of us had a meal here, well actually 5 , as they forgot my husbands! Although the waiter apologised, they didn't offer any complementary drinks, was very disappointing and not cheap either! Also it felt very hurried.

The staff were always outside this restaurant trying to show you the menu and get you to come in. We ate here once, the menu was varied but not the best value considering it is positioned on the main road through the town. The food was ok, however the drinks and service charge were quite high.

During our stay we visited other restaurants but returned to La Vela because it was the best in Maiori. The staff, the atmosphere, the service and the meals were all excellent! It is a typical Italian style restaurant with delicious food. I loved their appetizers and fish dishes and the pizza is tasty, as well :) Definitely worth the price,... More

We just spent a week in Maiori and this was our favourite restaurant! We revisited on the final night as we loved it so much! The seafood was lovely I had the seafood spaghetti and my partner had the lobster pasta, we also started off with the fish surprise starter which was 10 different mini fish dishes! We loved the...

The staff stands outside the door trying to get you in, and lure you from next door restaurant which we found better. Food and service were ok, nothing special.

Fast service, friendly staff, but pizza was a little bit burnt and dry. It would be better if they add more cheese and tomatoes.

We were advised that La Vela was a good choice of restaurant so on the fourth night of our holiday we decided to give it a try. As it always looked busy we made a reservation. The service was very slow, the food not a good as Eldorado and it was much more expensive. They tried to make it different... More
