We used to really enjoy eating here but recently the food hasn't been good at all. I had something new to the menu which was pork fillet with cheese and a spicy salsa. When it came there were a few fried new potatoes on the...More

Very busy restaurant in the centre of the city, with nice and helpful Italian staff. Food is great, it tastes like Italy. The menu has a lot of options, including vegetarian and vegan. Pasta perfectly cooked, and tasty grilled chicken. I'd definitely come back!

Was visiting friends in Canterbury and went here as a place they wanted to go but hadn't managed to yet. I had no expectations but was blown away by the quality of the pizza. Also as a vegetarian was so happy to see they had...More

Opposite the stone arched gateway to Kings School is Posillipos. Plenty of tables on the street to sit in the sun and watch the world go by. Helpful and attentive staff and very lovely fresh pasta - a good place to eat.

Very welcoming with good setting and a really good menu. The service was absolutely spot on on, and did not feel at all rushed. Had the meatballs they were superb

Me and my mum both had the black ink and swordfish raveolli and it was the most wonderful, delicious dish we ever ate! It was also incredibly cheap for its quality. Would 100% recommend.

Childhood friends Enzo Espedito welcome you to a little taste of Napoli with Osteria Posillipo Pizzaria ��� quite likely one of Canterbury���s friendliest restaurants. Decorated in relaxing woods, this light, airy space has the added bonus of being located near the Marlowe Theatre. An in-house wood-fired stone oven is visible from the open-plan kitchen on the ground floor, allowing hungry diners watch their pizzas bubble away the traditional way. Not in the mood for pizza? Traditional Italian favourites are the name of the game here, including fresh, homemade pasta like spaghetti a vongole.
