Everything was perfect, the food, the wine, the service, the decor, ...and even the music. This is our best restaurant in 3 weeks in Italy. Lovely evening. Nous avons passé une belle soirée. Cuisine italienne réinventée, nouvelles saveurs et presentations creatives. Delicieux.

We stopped at the restaurant after reading some good reviews about it. We found the dishes to be a bit overpriced based on the location, but the non-traditional ingredients intrigued me. We ordered the Pasta al Tartufo di mare con lavanda (Pasta with truffle-clams, which is a local type of clam, and lavender); Squid ink lasagna; tuna tar tar with... More

We did not know what to expect being our first visit, we were given a free shuttle service by the restaurant and surprisingly by a lovely man being the father of Fernanda the owner. Fernanda herself welcomed us on arriving and what was special about this place is that she even served us as chef of her restaurant, helping us... More

By coincidence we drove by this restaurant and decided to try it. A wonderful young woman (Fernanda) guided us through the whole menu in english and where so amazingly passionate about her food. In the same way they do in Michelin-starred restaurants, we had a wonderful appetizer on the house with watermelon and chocolate; really courageous, and it worked! Afterwards... More

Amazing food, very creative but yet so simple and it works. Try the Gamberoni - al soffio di riso in salsa di cavolfiore e mele disidratate, simply gorgeous. During our stay we went there couple of times, so would recommend this family run restaurant very highly.

A place not to be missed in Masse Lubrense. This place came recommended by our villa property manager. Once we arrived at the restaurant we received a warm welcome by Giovanni and made us comfortable instantly. As we were two families with 4 children, their food was sorted asking what they preferred. We had a complimentary watermelon with chocolate gazpacho... More

Reommended by our B&B we decided to give this restaurant a try. Father picked us up from the B&B and drove us to the restaurant (about 10 min from Sant'Agata). Daughther is chef with the help of mother who previously ran the kitchen. Brother is the wine man who likes to talk about his wines wih passion. He has some... More

When you're staying in Campania, it is hard to find a bad dinner. However, after a while you want some change; for instance a culinary interpretation of South Italys great cuisine. Da Donna Fernanda is a pearl where you can have this great experience. Giovanni and his family will make you feel comfortable in a scenery environment.

We told the waiter that we would leave to him to decide what to eat. This led to a seemingly endless flow of lovely antipasti, followed by a plate of pasta with zucchini and a whole salt baked fish (I cannot remember what fish it was - i blame this on the great biodynamic Sardinian white wine we had been...

If you are adventurous in your food choices, this really is the place for you. If you're not you'll probably find it doesn't suit you so don't bother. I say that because this really is an unusual place - no menu but excellent food. Just don't go along with preconceived ideas of what you fancy. If you're staying locally, as... More
