My ricotta and salsiccia raviolis were amazing, my neighbor's Orecchiette alla selvaggina so so. Staff is very nice although one of them is a bit overwhelming

Excellent food, great host, family atmosphere. Definitely a must to visit if you are staying in Maratea. Booking recommended if you like to sit outside during summer months.

Being Brazilian and habit to good meat I wasn't expecting so much greatness from a Fiorentina steak and I was surprised on the size, taste and quality of the meat, astonishing. I would definitely suggest the steak! The service is friendly, definitely a warm service, but still professional, do not expect the classic one like in other restaurants.

Nicely served local dishes, starters included prosciutto, capocollo (a local coppa ham), nduja, ricotta, and pecorino. First dishes were amazing, orecchiette al finocchietto selvatico, pappardelle ai funghi, and a local chick-peas saus with trenette. Then a delicious steak, properly cooked. Service was friendly and pleasant. We recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to try the local food at a... More

I took my family here for my wedding and the host tried to impress us with his English and told us he visited California, he also told us there wasn't a menu. We live in italy, so we know the value of food and what it should be priced. The food was ok but the portions were very small as... More

The party/5 hour meal extravaganza we had at Il Giardino di Epicuro will go down in my families history books as one of the most memorable nights ever. The food was incredible. Everything we ate was made in house; sausage, pasta you name it. We were joined by 25 of our closest family and friends from the States and also... More

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Almost everything is hand prepared - from pasta to sausages to sauces to cheese. We agreed that this was one of the best meals we've had in Italy - with the pork streak and mushroom dishes (pasta and grilled mushroom) having the most impressive flavors! The price seemed a bit high as we were just... More

We were there on may 25 for a 50year wedding anniversary.Nice outside patio, but unfortunately it was a bit cold and we were inside. The food was just outstanding and Antonio and his family were great hosts. I personally recommend this place to everyone that wants to have a real food experience! Thank you Antonio! I hope to come back... More

My wife and I were married one year ago in Maratea and we held a fantastic dinner at Antonio's fabulous restaurant. We returned this year for our anniversary and were greeted like old friends. The restaurant is popular with locals and we even bumped into the owner of the very special Villa Carolina where we stayed last year and our... More
