Arrived at 9.15, ordered food and wine. The wine came straight away but nothing followed. Over an hour later, having chased and discovered that they had lost our order, we were promised our starters in 8 minutes. 20 minutes later the (average at best) starters arrived. Another hour later, we gave up on our main meal which never arrived. We... More

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant, the food was fresh and served quickly, very tasty, and a nice choice of menu, the wine list is a little limited but the ambience and quiet location are a definite plus

Excellent food nice spot in the square where you can people watch, service was a bit slow they were trying to fit to many people in, but that's business, but the food thankfully made up for that, we couldn't fault it, was a good night just have patience. ❤️

The meal started out fab! Starters were lovely and then the let down began. We had three set menus, the mains were not that great. The sole dish was drowned in so much lemon that you couldn't taste the fish, the squid dish was rubbery and cold. The Veel had no garnish which left it boring and plain. The desserts... More

We didn't sample the food, apart from the delicious gratuity snacks that you get when you have a drink (more shame on us - but that will be corrected next time!). Paisa is a lovely little restaurant - cum - bar. The staff are dedicated, polite and exceedingly hard working. How Maria keeps going, we don't know. Highly recommended.

Our group of eight was very disappointed when we received our bills to discover that the sea bass was sold by the gram, not per serving. This fact was apparently hidden in the menu in Italian. The sea bass was one of the specials that night and four persons received different sized sea bass. When it was time to pay... More

Food was nice service average a bit overpriced but worth a visit. Food comes from downstairs so not piping hot. End of season so perhaps when busier it may be better

I have seen a number of reviews of this place which don't look great, but we had a really good meal here and excellent service. We ordered off the standard menu, the food was well cooked and excellent value. Even with a half decent bottle of wine it was only just over 40 euros for two of us. Waitress was... More

Went to this place last night as a group of eight. Told sea bass was the fresh fish of the day so many of us ordered it. Total shock when the bill came. Beware you pay for the fish by weight and although the menu is in English the small print in Italian explains that the cost is 7 euro... More

We noticed this restaurant a few days after arriving in Maiori and made a mental note to return as the 3-course menu on the board outside sounded lovely. When we arrived, however, we were not offered a menu at all. The waitress (possibly the owner as other reviewers have mentioned) started talking about the fresh fish they had, with a... More
