We stayed at the resort up the road and really didn't want to drive far down the mountain so we went here for dinner. Staff was very welcoming and friendly towards us. The service was good and the food was delicious. We wound up coming back a second night for dinner and had pizza again!

We were staying in the large resort hotel just down the road, although we had a car and generally spent most of our time away from the place we decided to give driving a break on my birthday so I could have a beer and walked up to this little place. The clientelle seemed to be a fair percentage of... More

Ate here twice during our week long stay, and unfortunately only found it late in the week. Prices, quality of food and the friendliness of staff were all fantastic. Their menu of the day was a huge meal and each course beautifully prepared. Not to be missed.

We were staying at the Grand Hotel Pianeta just down the road for a family wedding and their restaurant is pretty mediocre. The younger family members had already been to the Piccolo Ranch and came back full of praise and pasta. A bigger group of about twenty went back for our last night and it was very good. The seafood... More

Ate here 3 times while we were in Maratea. Only had pizza, which was delicious, and some antipasti, also delicious, but did try a bit of someone's pasta which was very tasty. One menu of pizza, ranging from about €5 to the best pizza I've ever had, the Pizza Tucci (all of €10) The base was excellent, but it was... More

Our friends surprised us with a trip to Ristorante Il Piccolo Ranch. We all had pizza made in the wood fired oven. Delicious, with many varieties to choose from. The service is superb, the owner very agreeable and welcoming. Marvelous view. I highly recommend it.
