“Just eat here!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We stayed in this town for a week and ate here five times including take aways! It is that good and they do other food including Mac n' cheese Mmmmmm, excellent spaghetti and boozy profiteroles. The service is attentive and it offers excellent value for money, the most we spent for the two of us in one go was E55 and that was for four courses including house wine. Some staff do speak English and there are English menus. Mario is the owner and the KING of Pizza! This is a family run business and many local people come to eat here so you can tell it is trusted.

“Justly famous for the experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Locals come from miles around to this cavernous restaurant in the delightful town of Vico Equense. It is famous for serving pizza by the metre, and offers a good variety of flavours to choose from as well as a take away service. We are probably spoit in having many good wood-fired authentic pizza restaurants around now - but this is as good as any.

“Super Mario Oh, mamma-mia!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Ate here most evenings whilst staying in Vico. Nice touch to have a free glass of Prosecco served when you sit down. Menu choice is wide - not just their famous metre long pizzas- includes a range of pastas and fish dishes. Mario suggested the seafood special spaghetti for me the one evening - not a big fish fan but the mussels and prawns were fresh and tasty. They also cooked up a special carbonara (actually was not on the menu) for me - best one I had tasted all holiday.

If you are staying at Villa Ketty (which we were - the beautiful home that Mario owns with his wife Ketty) -you also get a 5% discount off your bill and free parking in their underground car park. And Mario will also insist that he serves a free lemoncello or coffee at the end of the meal.

It's a big restaurant so if you are looking for a cosy intimate experience it would not be for you. I would also guess it would get really busy in the peak summer months -so service may suffer.
They have a glass wall the full length of the restaurant so you can see your food being cooked. Waiters also have limited use of English language.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Food was fine service was abysmal in a very large restaurant that was nowhere near full. Very disappointing experience overall.

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Huge restaurant - very popular and obviously also caters for large package tours. Despite this service is good, pizzas great and the food is good value.
