We were stopped by road side waiter, who talked us into sitting down. It looked good as was very busy, and had a good atmosphere. Was recommended to have the catch of the day, the fish came with just a small amount of salad, and we were charged 30euros for this!!! The waiter asked the owner how... read more

it was a few months back now, but visited this restaurant for dinner and takeaway pizza lunches while on holiday in Maiori. The takeaways were prepared before our eyes and very quickly - enjoyed them tremendously both for lunch on the beach and one evening on the hotel balcony! As for dinner in the restaurant, the food was fantastic and... More

Came here for pizza lunch and a break from the beach. Experience spoiled by female member of the staff who stood over me in intimidating fashion as I looked at the menu outside and was very keen for me to come in until she realised I was on my own. Went in anyway as pizza menu seemed fairly extensive at... More

We visited this restaurant a few times for lunch and dinner. Pasta dishes were fantastic as were the pizzas for the kids. Great service as well. Not a huge selection of restaurants in Maiori but this one is a must.

The food was good, the service was efficient and the surroundings were nice. Unfortunately the restaurant has no ambiance.

Having reviewed the menu earlier in the day, my husband and I called in for food as it was close to our hotel and there was a thunderstorm. Food was very good, we had gnocchi and steak, complimentary fruit drink appetiser and delicious bruschetta, staff were very attentive despite the restaurants increased business due to the worsening weather. Most delighted... More

We visited this restaurant several times during our visit mainly down to the excellent food on offer. Our only concern with this restaurant is that although pleasant the waiters are very pushy both when ordering and then after your meal trying to push desserts. We also saw the owner telling off a waiter in front of customers which was not... More

We ate here twice & both times the food & service have been very good. It is priced slightly higher than the other restaurants we'd been to in Maiori but not so much that it was a problem. The first night we were given a free additional starter. All food was very tasty. Had a mixture of pizza, mussels, escalope... More

Good restaurant with little complimentary extras thrown in to enhance the evening. Ate here twice but on the second visit they got our bill wrong but was quickly rectified. We all ate different things from catch of the day to pizza and all of the meals were fresh and tasty. Worth a visit but check your bill.
