Had several great meals here in October 2014 so were keen to go back. It was okay, but no where near as good as it was previously. And it was expensive for what we had. Huge tables of locals and they seemed to get all the attention from the waiters to the extent that we were going to leave just... More

I've been visiting La Vela for many years & have always enjoyed visiting this bright restaurant but this year ..... Just because you're busy with many orders for takeaway pizza you serve me the worst prepared pizza I've had on the Amalfi coast . The sausage & broccoli were poor - disturbing crunchy bits in the sausage ? Penne arrived... More

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.
