We had an awful experience in this restaurant. Besides the view of the archeological site, it was actually the worst place we've ever been to. The quality of the ham was horrific (and they even gave us the worst part of it!), the pasta had a strange taste and the mozzarella/broccoli pizza didn't even have broccoli, but some kind of...

Good place for lunch after visiting the archeological site. Pizza was good as well as pasta. We had a mistake in order because our Italian was as rusty as waiter's English.

I spent half a day to visit the archaeological site so what you need it s to chill out with a good drink, a perfect pizza and a tasty real bufala mozzarella....if you had a great view and a really good price, you cannot go wrong !

Visited Paestum with my family and stopped here for food. Great family meal with lovely views of the ruins after sun set.

Passed by and had dinner. Okay pizza and pasta. Nothing special in any way. The vino rosso isn't anything I'd recommend. Quite disappointed about the desert - the kids had icecream and when Italy has so great icecream why would you serve some prefab industrial carte d'or?

Pizzas were very good, however we waited almost an hour for them to be ready. Added cheese, buffalo Di mozzarella is very good , so is the pizza with zucchini flowers.

What else can I say, the BEST pizza I have had in Italy. Across the road from entrance road to Paestum Ruins. Don't miss Simposium for a meal before or after viewing the the Greek ruins.

Good pizzas and salad at a reasonable cost. Service was very good and efficient. Pleasant outdoor dining area. Ideal for a family lunch after visiting the site and much cheaper and quicker than the restaurant on the site itself.
