We've been coming here for some years now, and it remains a favourite destination for lunch. This time we ate here twice. Our first visit was on a lovely sunny day and it was a pleasure to sit under the vines and enjoy mussels and spaghetti from the (not so light) lunch menu. Our second visit coincided with an absolute... More

Ask to try the zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta. So incredible. We really loved this place. Friendly staff and delicious food. Great house wine made right next door in ravello.

Il Giardiniello was recommended to us for dinner by our local host and we loved it!!! We went back twice and had wonderful fish dishes and very good service. A bit pricey compared to other places but well worth the premium. Absolutely recommended.

We had a light lunch outside one day (sometimes only frites and beer will do!) and decided to return another evening for dinner. Nice décor, lots of plants, climbing vines, lanterns and some sculpture. Tables laid out well with linen napkins. Waiter attentive (a little too fast off the mark when he removed my partner's plate while he was still... More

Lovely al fresco but under-cover dining setting, friendly if a little over-effusive waiters, good service and very nice food...but we were not the only people being just a little hurried along as the queues built up at the door of this undoubtedly popular restaurant...my plate was taken away while I was still eating...not so good for what seems to be...

This place is one of the best restaurants in Minori. They have a great wine selection, but pricey. I had the lamb and it was excellent, but if you don't tell them medium or well done it will be served rare. I opted for the well done and to me it came out medium (pink). The seafood is very well...

There is certainly a lack of choice for restaurants in Minori so this place had to do one night. The outdoor garden makes for a nice setting. The pasta was perfectly al dente if rather usual. The waiters dos their best to charm all the ladies. It just felt like a money making tourist trap...

I had done some research and thought this would be a good place to eat, but it exceeded all expectations; so much so that we ate there 3 times in our week at Ravello. I am a foodie and the food here was the best of the week. The seafood was incredibly fresh and prepared perfectly (Giovanni the chef inspects... More

We have been twice for Dinner here both times were good. Service is great and the food is good. I tried the Gluten Free Pasta and Pizza was OK but is never great I had the Sea Basss the next time a few nights later was fresh and well cooked.
