My husband got the 5 course surprise dinner and I ordered a wonderful pasta dish. We both ate royally. We enjoyed so much, we returned to sample more of the menu for lunch the next day.

We didn't expected this restaurant to be this fancy, personally i enjoy more a family restaurant where the people are not that fancy. But I have to give them what's theirs: the restaurant is very nice, the personnel is very attentive and they serve all kind of things on the house. The portions are rather small but that is to...

About pricier and way fancier than the average trip advisor #1 restaurant in many other cities. My husband got the chef's special which was a great way to try some new and eclectic things. My kids weren't super impressed with their meals but loved the bread.

The service is great! They all are polite and explain you their weird menu :) We ordered more mainstream food like rizotto and chicken fillet and they were delicious.The local wine from campania was good.The dessert was also delicious.Although the restaurant has no particular views somewhere it is well maintained.

Great food and great service in a wonderful atmosphere Took my wife and daughter (11) for dinner and our meal was excellent. Toasted marshmallow with petit fours at desert with some limoncello was a beautiful touch

My partner and I came here during our last evening in Pompeii. It is not at a great setting as its let down by its lack of view. The service however was of a very high standard and the food was good too. We were given appetisers to start and free bread. For starter I had the beef tartare and... More
