Good food and great view

We ate at Il Cantuccio twice and enjoyed it both times. The only drawback was that they were so busy that on our second visit it took far too long to get the bill. The food is largely local dishes which are cooked very well. Service, except for the bill, is very nice.

We had dinner here on a sunny evening. The selection of dishes was a Pizza, Calamari with vegetables and plain pasta for our two year old. The food was average and the Calamari came as a very small portion compared to other restaurants in the area. We experienced the service as friendly, but in a very superficial way. Surprise came...

Delicious mixed starters, especially the deep fried courgette flowers and melanzane parmigiana. Fabulous view and friendly service. Would happily eat here again and again!

Arriving in Massa Lubrense for lunch we wanted a table with a front line view of the coast. The signs for Restaurant Il Cantuccio are pretty much front line as you enter the main square. After taking the steps down to the restaurant we noticed just 2 tables occupied with a total of 3 diners. With approx. 25+ tables empty... More

In the area for a week and ate there twice. The staff are just lovely, very welcoming and engaging, they make you want to go back. The food is just gorgeous, the highlights for us being the whole sea bass, the canelloni, the risotto and the steak. It's the views that everyone goes for, watching that amazing sunset. Just stunning.... More

A lovely restaurant with beautiful views while you eat. We ate here twice in our stay and food was good each time. The service was good. The only slight grumble is that we ate there on the hottest day of the year and there was no fan or ac which made it quite uncomfortably stuffy under the canopy.

Fabulous setting with stunning views. Unfortunately the food did not equal this. The pizza I had was ok but my partner ordered pasta which was literally thrown onto the plate and was again ok but after having so many fabulous meals it did not match up to these I'm afraid

In Massa at the bottom of the town square in the corner are the steps down to this good restaurant. It holds the best view of the upper town, and probably commands the biggest prices, but you do get good food, and for that romantic end of holiday evening for couples, this is the restaurant to choose. The owner and... More

We ate at this restaurant 4 times !!!, in our 9 days tripp. The location offers you an amazing view, especially if you go there near sunset. Their best food ever is , of course, Pizza! Try it and you will be amazed. I would also recommend their seafood (home made pasta, gluten free pasta and so on) and their... More
