Well, the place is quite good located..but we're not astonished by food. It's bland, not seasonded. Didin't expect that kind of food from Italy. As someone said, I would go back there only if I'm Very hungry and nobody is open, but no...I would probably go to the supermarket...

We just found this restaraunt while walking around the shops and the menu outside was good price. The guy outside was nice he wears a sherif badge and a great smile not to pushy like you find trying to bring you in. Lovely food verity of meals choice. At the back is a garden seating area. It's all undercover so... More

We didn't have time to compare so we landed here. The tomato sauce on the pasta was quite watery but the taste was OK, the lasagna was plain and simple, my roasted chicken was a tasty chicken wing on a plate (don't forget to order something to go with it). We were asked 50€ without getting a bill and had... More

Lovely little restaurant tucked away down an arcade with wisteria hanging over the ceiling. Even a power cut didn't stop the great service and food. Good value for money and big portions.

Went here for lunch one day it was average, nothing special to write about. My other half liked his lasagne, it looked a little bland to me. Don't really have much to add, only ate there last week, but I don't really remember it.

In Pompeii town between the main square and the ruins...warm welcome, food reasonable and well priced. The back of the restaurant is attractive, we were seated in a driveway between there and the main road...

We ate here on one of our last evenings in Pompei. The service was great - Antonio, our waiter was really welcoming and friendly. We had Penne Arrabiata and the Breaded pork schnitzel. The pasta tasted great and the schnitzel was Ok( maybe a little dry - would work better with chicken). I would recommend the place if you would... More

It looks very nice from the outside. The service for the most part was good aside from giving me sardines and vegetables instead of the olive plate I ordered. The food was not what you would expect in Italy, it tasted prefrozen. I probably would not go back unless I was starving and nothing else was open. The house wine... More

Attracted by the price and the name, as we were all wine lovers, we chose La Vinicola. While the choice of wines was pretty solid, the food was on the average-bad spectrum of quality. Fried fish was clearly frozen and of low quality, lacking taste. The caprese salad was done with very low level mozzarella, a crime for such a... More
