We ate at Braceria Scacciaventi because of the good reviews and were not disappointed.
First don't make the mistake of going next door to Taverna Scacciaventi. We almost did. We loved Braceria Scacciaventi immediately on entering because of the wood fired grill in the back, with the chef in front and a huge cut of meat on the table, ready to be butchered -- very picturesque.
I didn't know what to order, so I left it up to the waitress, a lovely young lady (I didn't get her name). First we started with two amuse bouches and a glass of prosecco, that were gratis. What a lovely way to start. We ordered salad first -- very nice. Then we had the main course of a steak for my wife and a tagliatelle (sp?) that the waitress chose for me. It was smaller pieces of meat, with cheese on top. The two meals were accompanied by potatoes with rosemary. We loved the meal. The waitress also chose the wine for us, at our request. She ordered a bottle of local Racemus red wine -- delicious. We didn't tell her a price, so she could have chosen anything, but the prices were very reasonable. €18 for the bottle of wine and only €75 for the entire meal. Wow!
We wholeheartedly endorse this restaurant and hope you'll visit when you're in Cava de Tirenni.
