First of all the surroundings are stunning. The restaurant (and hotel) are build into the rocks and overlooking Naples bay and Mount Vesuvius. I recommend to go early in the evening and have some cocktails on terrace whilst looking at the sunset. So far for the good news. Me and my partner decided to go for 5/6 course menu, which... More

I can't fathom why this restaurant is not more highly rated. Food was outstanding, plentiful and local. Service was impeccable and the cost was more than reasonable compared to similar places I've eaten. When asked to recommend a wine they picked one of the lowest price ones and brought numerous extra bits to eat on before and after main courses.... More

Maxi has a rich modern atmosphere with a spectacular view. Most of the indoor and all of the outdoor tables are front row, offering a romatic and relaxing setting. We were promptly greeted and seated and were given assistance in ordering our tasting menus. We chose the 7-course tasting menu paired with wines. We enjoyed the chef's cooking and thought... More

We went with the al a carte option and asked the sommelier to provide a glass of wine per course; each was perfect and she didn't seem to mind opening bottles especially for us. The lobster was not what I expected and delicious, pasta to die for and the mains all delightful!

We are Michelin star novices, we stayed at Hotel Capo La Gala so of course we took advantage of eating at the restaurant. We did want to do the tasting menu but we had overindulged during the rest of our trip and were trying to be mindful. We really enjoyed the food and the service was absolutely lovely. They provided... More

We had a superb meal from the tasting menu at Maxi during our recent stay at Capo La Gala. Quality of the food was very good with extra treats between courses. Service was good, not overly attentive as you can find in some Michelin star restaurants. I have a good appetite and a sweet tooth but I was stuffed by... More

As part of our 10 night stay at Capo la gala we were lucky enough to eat at the Maxi restaurant 3 times during our stay and it was faultless every time. My wife is a vegetarian and if you mention this to the staff then they give you a separate menu which has around 8 vegetarian dishes on it.... More

I put my main review of Maxi in my review of the hotel as we stayed there last week. The short version is that we had two very disappointing meals at Maxi. There are plenty of good reviews here so maybe we were just unlucky, but we had some very uneven cooking during our two meals at Maxi last week.... More

We ate here one night during our stay at Capo la Gala. The setting is lovely sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea. I found the moulded chairs comfortable but hubby did not - they don't work for all heights. I know Michelin star restaurants need to focus on service but I would say that the service here was perhaps... More
