If you are around, you must eat in this restaurant. Having a table inside is a better idea since the atmosphere is very speacial. The service is professional. We did not book but it was a September evening so it was ok. I tried the spagetti with putanesca sauce: anchoives, tomatoes... it was good... read more

We ordered the food, and the starters/primi was lovely and the mains quickly came out ... Or at least my husband's did. He was half... More

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.

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!

I went to this restaurant for lunch with my brother and sister. We had the best food/drink. We loved it that much went back for dinner that night and had a pizza (1 meter long), it also was beautiful. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to have a romantic dinner too. 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
