The employees are very friendly but the food is very average..worst I had in Maiori to be honest. The house wine was easily the WORST I have ever drunk ever...it was shamefully bad. I live in Portugal and know my wines..this was an insult.

We ate here many times during our stay in Maiori. Very friendly staff, couldn't do enough for you and catered for my nut allergy which was an added bonus! The food was amazing each night we ate there. Particular favourite was the fruits der mer linguine. Also the complementary starters on our last night was a very nice touch.

Haven't tried most of the restaurant on the same high street we decided to try this one, what I can say!

We ate here a few times while in Maiori.The food,drinks and service was always good it gets very busy.Be warned if you are asked about the fresh caught fish it is very expensive so get price first.This resturant is a must.

We ate here several times and each time they made you feel welcome. Good traditional Italian food, good sized portions and you also get a complementary starter, so don't order a starter! Good value and worth a visit. You may also get a free fridge magnet!
