I was here for an special occasion, like the b-day of my grandmother. This location is been very pretty and relaxing for all my family, children and senior. Before the lunch we start in the garden with alcohol-free juice or prosecco and many appetizers, scones... Inside we tasted the delicateness of each dish where it's obvious the great chef's work,...

We had a large group and visited for lunch after touring Pompei. We were treated royally, with waves of wonderful food, each more delicious than the last. Beyond careful attention to the food, the proprietor paid careful attention to us. He was very personable and warm, and he made us feel totally at home. When the proprietor is truly passionate...

I would say if you're looking for that perfect little Italian restaurant with focus on fresh local produce cooked simply, this restaurant takes some beating. There was no menu, the young enthusiastic manager tells you what they can do that day. Seafood starters were pretty unbeatable - a hot selection of stuffed anchovy, grilled octopus, tuna & cod & cod... More

We visited the restaurant by chance really and were taking aback by the beauty of the outdoor finding with the contemporary pools and contrasting 100yr old trees intertwining with the structure. We chose the seafood and meat platter for starters which were a delight to the tastebuds. Main course comprised of rare beef fillet with sauté potatoes and asparagus ,... More

After our Pompeii tour my family and I stopped here for lunch. It is hard to add more to the descriptions other reviewers have already provided because our experience was the same. The food and wine were sensational in a great setting.

We went here after a tour of Pompeii, it's conveniently located just outside of the entrance to Pompeii. Food was excellent, salad portions are huge (you could share) and great setting. The free wifi - you have to get a code from the waiter/waitress and sometimes they tell you it's not working because they are too lazy to get you... More

I have to start by saying we were taken here by a friend who knows Gioacchino, but that hasn't coloured my review. From the moment I walked in hot and bothered by a long walk round Pompeii, I was made to feel like a welcome guest. Gioacchino came out of the kitchen to meet us - clearly knowing Giovanna helps!...

Our driver took us here for lunch on the way from Pompei to Sorrento. It was a lovely setting for a restaurant with gardens and areas to lounge. The food was a little pricey for lunch but the quality was definitely there. The eggplant app was wonderful as well as all the sample plate offerings. I would really like to... More
