Visited La Vela on a few occasions and the standard is always tremendous. Food is great as is the service. One to visit when in Maiori.

Serves up a good pizza if you can wait long enough! Pasta dishes not so great....and over priced! Service is horrible when busy and the staff don't seem to be that bothered by it! Lunchtime retreat only!

We done nearly all of the recommended restaurants nearby and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of food at La Vela. We've been back at sampled more of the extensive menu. Service can be a little bit slow at peak times but the food compensates when it arrives.

We came across La Vela when I didn't fancy the food on offer in our hotel one night! We ended up going 3 times! Two for evening meals and once for lunch. Really lovely food and friendly staff. We would recommend but it can get very busy.

Excellent pizza, probably the best I had during my stay on the Amalfi Coast. Staff were very friendly and attentive.

The restaurant is located on the seafront, separated from the promenade and the beach by a very busy road. I'm afraid it's too much of a tourist trap: the food is of very average quality and it is expensive for what is on offer. Not recommended.

The food was excellent. Staff were very friendly. Only downside of our meal was we were forgotten about after our main course and after 15-20 mins we had to ask about dessert menu, that said it was delicious when it arrived.

Visited here last night as when we walked past previous the food looked good. The food indeed was very good and plentiful, just a warning if some of you have starters and others don't, tell the staff to bring all the mains together as one of us got her pizza when we got starters. The staff were very friendly and... More
