Lovely local fresh seafood

We went here for both lunch and dinner. Staff were lovely and we enjoyed the fresh local seafood for both meals. Would definitely recommend it.

Food is always fresh and cooked well. Great Service. Good wine. What else do you need? I will be back as soon as possible.

This place doesn't disappoint - incredible seafood (make sure you get anchovies!), pasta and some of the best pizza I've ever had. Add the ambiance of the quaint fishing village of Cetara and you can't go wrong!

We arrived here at the end of service really but the staff welcomed us! Their speciality are anchovies, which we had for starters, there was an assortment of about 6 different ways to cook them, delicious! My main course was pasta with anchovies, delish, my sons pasta was scrummy too! My husband had a combination of fish! All good! The... More

I went to this restaurant for lunch with my brother and sister. We had the best food/drink.

Ask for Tanino and he will look... More

Food, waiter service and ambience were all excellent. We had seen the restaurant featured in Anthony Bourdain's 'No Reservations' food and travel programme, and decided to give it a try. Highly recommended.

We were offered a seat outside but asked to sit inside as it was getting chilly. This was no problem to the staff who found us a nice table inside. The food was excellent and we had a very good meal which we enjoyed. The staff were helpful and we would recommend this to other travellers

Very nice local restaurant with a beautiful terrace on a charming little square. Outside seating is a real treat, inside however, as often in the region, is less charming. Typical local fare with lots of taste, and generous portions. Inexpensive menu, an excellent deal.

Excellent starters of caprese salad and mixed green salad then tuna Genovese pasta and a prosciutto pizza along with house red wine all of which was enjoyed. Only negative was some heated discussion between staff members. I know Italians are animated speakers but this went beyond that. Better to have that kind of interaction off to the side somewhere and... More
