Good food

Food was good. Genuine Italian staff who are friendly but of course a little slow, so authentic. :-) if you are in a rush then be aware but we were not and we had an enjoyable night. Also the beer from Turin was very good but is £13 a bottle - 75cl. Overall a good restaurant and would recommend.

As a local now for the past couple of years we come here at all different times of year. It is always a lovely time with a varied menu & good specials board. The tables are tight together and its a very 'cosy' place but we see this as part of he charm. Waiting service is good and not intrusive.... More

I had an evening meal here with my girlfriend. The food was delicious and plentiful, and the service was fast and friendly. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, and the prices are reasonable.

Have been hundreds of times to this restaurant and would probably place it as one of my favourites of all time. The food is always top notch and there's a great atmosphere. The service is always quick and they're very friendly. A fabulous family restaurant. I highly recommend it.

Booked our table for four people four weeks in advance and turned up bang on time only to be told there were no tables free. We were offered a table for six right by the front door which we declined as it was right beside what was evidently the 'hang around in' area whilst you were waited to be seated.... More

We have been eating here for many years, mainly in small groups of friends and family. This time we were more than 20 for a birthday celebration lunch booked in the upstairs room and the whole team at Posillipo made it just the most perfect occasion. The food was fantastic; generous, delicious, piping hot and freshly cooked and all 3... More

Just do it! We've been using Posillipos since 1996 and NEVER have had a disappointing meal there! Try the Antipasi for 2 also the Zuppa De Pesci and any pizzas!

I have been coming to this resturant for many years, the food is always so delicious and the staff are amazing, sometimes I see reviews about the staff being abrupt but I think when you are going to a resturant for authentic italian food you would only expect authentic Italian waiters and chefs (hence on some occasions the staff are...
