We were walking around Palinuro and wanted lunch. We saw this restaurant with a balcony in the back. The view was north along the sea. You could see Ascea and Casal Velino Marina in the distance and the mighty Mount Stella. We wanted pizza but they only serve it for dinner. We shared a large salad, vegetable sampler plate and...

We were running out of options and we should have just gotten a slice of pizza. We ate sooooo poorly and ended up not eating much at all. The bill was astonishing. We had 3 other meals an eighth of the price in the city.

We had a average glass of proseco watching at a incredibly beautiful sunset. The pizza as all it takes to be good, but sadly it was just slightly undercooked. But the ingredients was fresh and the staff pretty nice. Also seems to be a family friendly place looking at the number of kids around.

A dinner on this restaurant's terrace at sunset is worth a visit to Palinuro. Ask for fresh fish of the day. Good service.

Probably the best seafood in Palinuro. They only will give you what is fresh thus eliminating some things from the menu if not available. Ordering your fish "acqua pizza" (which in Italia is so much more than poached) allows you to have a fantastic experience at dinner. From the presentation to the taste and flavor of every bite and looking... More

Went to this restaurant at the suggestion of our hotel staff. The dining terrace has an incredible view of the sea, which is especially nice during sunsets. We were there at about 8-ish, and it looked as if they had just opened up the place (which also explains why we managed to get a table right at the edge of... More

Okay, so it was off-season, but it really would have been nice to know before entering the restaurant that about 75% of what’s on the menu was not available. So we chose from what was available, fish and seafood – there was steak also which we didn’t try but which looked okay from what we saw. The (big) pizza oven,... More
