I had dinner here with my husband and the atmosphere was perfect for a date! Romantic lighting with soft music in the background and lots of people! This place has a great energy about it and the staff were super nice... And the FOOD was great! If you're a fish lover I recommend the fish that's cooked with (or in)... More

As we hadn't booked, we couldn't sit in the 'garden' area, which was fine, however, we were put in a corner...Anyway, the food was lovely, no problem there and although the waiting staff were pleasant, one girl did hover quite a lot, and another waiter in haste to get my plate did accidentally brush his arm against my chest. He... More

After touring most parts of Italy, my partner decided to save the coastal part of the trip for last. I must say that was the best decision ever made by him. The weather is warm and sunny, the sun sets at the perfect time. Our first dinner in Minori was at Giardiello, a beautifully set restaurant about three minute walk... More

We visited the Giardiniello three times during our stay in Minori. It is a well established restaurant which has been there for a long time. The spaghetti vongole is superb, as well as the pizzzas. The restaurant is very popular and can get very busy so probably best to book. There is a large outside area as well as inside.... More

I had lunch here based on a recommendation I read by Jamie Oliver's Italian offsider Gennaro Contaldo. Fried octopus and anchovies to start followed by an eggplant and tomato pasta - both were delicious and accompanied by a fresh white wine with fast and friendly service.

This place looks pretty amazing and has to be the most romantic and intimate looking restaurant in Minori. The problem is that the staff have no concept of time, avoid eye contact (however hard you stare at them and reach out of your chair for their attention) that you're left wishing you never went. It's such a shame as we... More

I have had the pleasure of dining at the restaurant 3 times in the last four years. I am giving a four star review. It was 5 stars the first two times but only three the last few times. Maybe they just had an off night, and I am giving them the benefit of the doubt since our last visit... More

Tasty food, very good service from the waitress, waiters a little surly though! Fried courgette flowers with ricotta were delicious, pasta was full of flavour and the sea bass was to die for. Complimentary lemoncello at the end was a great touch. Highly recommend.

Lovely service and great food - try and book a table in the open "garden" area in the front. We went twice in a 3 night stay!
