Very nice restaurant for lunch or diner. Certainly not the typical Pizza restaurant. I enjoyed it very much

Owned by our hotel, Villa Battista, Lo Re was a cute trendy wine bar, blackboard menu and good food. Our feelings though if you are in Italy for the Italian experience this is NOT the place to go. You can eat in a trendy wine bar anywhere in the states.

This restaurant is immense popular... And not without a reason.. The food is really good. There is a handwritten menu on a blackboard, which is Italian. Like in more restaurants we went in this regio not a bilingual menu, but it is a problem that the waiters are too busy so they had hardly time to explain to us the... More

Walk a couple of hundred metres east from the Herculaneum exit and you'll find this little gem of a place, serving great food in a lovely atmospheric dining room. There was a comprehensive wine list, too. The day's menu is displayed on a chalk board - lots of fresh fish dishes, but some meat and vegetarian alternatives. Amazing chocolate-based puddings...

We are staying in Ercolano for only one night and wanted a good meal. We looked at Trip Advisor and decided to walk along the Main Street to Vivo lo Re. How pleased we are are that we did! The restaurant was empty when we arrived (7.30), but soon filled up, mostly with locals. The restaurant is exciting and the... More

The restaurant is a 10-minute walk from the excavations. Very nicely decorated. There was no English menu - the daily menu was written in Italian on a chalk board. I didn't really get a lot of help with the menu, and ended up ordering a pasta dish that was truly excellent, but very small in size, so that I had... More

This restaurant used to be good. I returned here recently after 9 years and had fond memories of it. Back then I stayed in the area for 2 weeks and we had dinner here every day. In my last visit I was completely appalled. The staff abandoned us in a dark room (resembling a library), without a menu or drinks... More

Enjoyed a sublime Sunday lunch here after visiting the ruins. Top quality and the best meal we had around Naples amongst many excellent ones, and relatively good value for money. Local wine also a must try. Go !
