“Great find after viewing the Ercolano Scavi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We came in for lunch after viewing the archeological site. The hostess was very welcoming, translated the menu into English for us, and suggested a wine to go with our food, that was very good. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very nice, but not stuffy. The food was very good, including pasta and antipasto starters, and mains of seafood and meat. We were sorry not to have room for dessert, because those looked delicious too. It's just a four-block walk turning right after leaving the excavation site.

Great pasta dishes and wonderful fish second plates. Original beer from Sorrento and a good service is the top of the cake. The crude fish and the tuna, excellents

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

We came in for a late lunch after visiting the archeological site. Wonderful spaghetti, excellent fish in salt and a very tasty dessert. Worth every penny - and indeed the wine was very good as well. Prices for this are very reasonable. Great experience!

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

After our hours at the archeological site, we were very happy to arrive at Viva lo Re. And what a treat we were in for! The place is gorgeous, service friendly and professional, and the food & wine selection fantastic. HIGHLY recommended. Go for local wine.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Excellent "fusion" restaurant offering charming, creative interpretations of traditional neapolitan dishes and an amazing selection of wines. Don't miss the starters and the dessert, alone worth the visit. A fantastic place for a dinner.
