Manages to combine a degree of seriousness in its food with being very family friendly in a beach town. 9 year old daughter loved the place! Both the pizza and the sea bass we chose were huge portions but delicious as were the zucchini flowers. Local wine the waiter helped us choose was both reasonably priced and surprisingly good.

We ate here twice, not because it was great but because they offer decent food in a town pretty much catering for tourists. First evening we had two rather bland pasta meals, pasta with fish ragout. They where not bad, just nothing special. Tiny pieces of fish in a bland tomato sauce. The rocket salad was however fresh and spicy.... More

You sit under a roof of brances and leaves. Very nice and cool. Great food - especially the appetizers. Ate there twice. The wine was the best local, and it was super and absolutely not expensive. The restarant is not cheap but it's very recommendable.

We were staying at the five star hotel Caruso who recommended this charming family owned restaurant for lunch. We had had a fabulous sea bream in lemon sauce, a great bottle of wine, coffee and sorbet ...all served by the charismatic owner. We enjoyed ourselves so much we made a reservation for dinner the following evening. Equally pleasurable....great service, atmosphere... More

Based on the TA reviews we stopped here for lunch. We both ordered Pizza and were not disappointed. They were well presented and freshly made and tasted great. Good service and not that expensive either.

Lovely setting but slow service. Food good but not the most memorable from our stay. We had lunch so I expect it would be far better to go for dinner when time is less of an isse and you can take advantage of many courses.

We passed this restaurant walking down from Ravello to Minori and how glad we were that we did. We wanted to eat on the seafront but having being enchanted by the look of this place and turned off by the restaurants with pictures of food on the seafront we headed back for a lazy boozy lunch. The food was stunning... More

Great little joint with friendly and welcoming staff. While it's one of the most expensive dishes they do @ 28 Euros, my friend and I love this Mediterranean speciality so we had to try it! It didn't disappoint and was full of mussels, clams, prawns and langoustine in a light tomato broth, just delicious! There were several groups of locals... More

We were really looking forward to this, thinking it was the best restaurant in Minori. Its just the most expensive one. The food tasted like it had been made the day before. The staff barely tolerated us being there. It was incredibly expensive. We'd spent the same amount of money at another restaurant in Ravello and been bowled over by... More
