I visited again with friends for a Sunday lunchtime catch up. As well as having the most delicious pasta, and gorgeous desserts, we were treated to the best service. As we were catching up after a long break, we had lots to say, and we were allowed to take as long as we needed to order, to eat, to settle... More

Posillipo, at the far end of Canterbury's interesting, 'boutique-y' Palace Street, always pleases with it's excellent just-cooked foods, top-notch house wines and spot-on service. Daily specials are just that, they genuinely change daily and some are pretty special. Prices are sensible. Any downside? No, not really. Definitely recommended.

The food itself was very good and its value for money made it all the more better. The staff were very accommodating and were able to facilitate my request of arranging flowers for my anniversary dinner. Couldn't have been better.

We tried Posillipo as the third of the chain and the food was as excellent as the Broadstairs venue. Staff were not entirely open regarding the cost of a nouveau Italian wine so lost a point but it was a great tasting wine! Posillipo restaurants always recommended but out of the 3 I'd choose Broadstairs for its venue, bustle, authenticity... More

I've been to Posillipo several times for different events including christmas dinner and the food and staff are always fantastic. Most recently I visited with my partner and we had a delicious 3 course meal for a reasonable price. Very good location and very much recommended.

We came here to celebrate my fathers birthday. The food, drink, service and value for money was excellent. I regret not getting our waiters name as he was perfect, he was from Lake Como and did a wonderful 'happy birthday' design on my fathers dessert plate in chocolate sauce. The food is always delicious, there is always a specials board... More

Me and my partner visited here on Sunday evening and I can honestly say we we're amazed. I had made reservations to eat here after seeing the good reviews on TA. When we arrived the place was very quiet and we had pretty much the pick of the whole restaurant with regard to where we'd like to sit (probably as... More

Found this restaurant as where we had planned to eat at was closed on a Monday. Bad planning on our part. A warm welcome, and even though busy a table was found for our party of four. Great menu, excellent meals, and very attentive service. I cannot fault this venue. Our friends who live locally last ate here over 10... More

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.
