We were staying at Luigi's place Villino Castellano and I was aware that he had a deal with this restaurant for 12 Euros fixed menu including a bottle of house red.
We arrived with not a great deal of expectation and were very pleasantly surprised. Amount of food on offer for 12 euros was way too much for us to finish. And the quality of the food was pretty good. In fact in my opinion their ravioli was much better than Tico Tico, which was more expensive. The ravioli literally melts in your mouth.
I actually didn't like their famous Croce Gigante that much. Must say when it comes to Pizza; simple is the best. Their simple Marinara/Margherita was one of the best that we had over our 3 weeks of travel in Italy. And my favourite was the fried Zucchini flower. Yum yum !!
I do not have a sweet tooth but their Lemon cake even made me go for a second helping.
The house red was quite palatable.
We went back twice more during our stay and tried various food from the main menu and were very happy most of the time. Perhaps the Gnocchi Sorrento style was a bit disappointing. We are vegetarians so can't comment on the non-veg items.
Compared to Sorrento, Meta hardly gets any tourists and the restaurant was filled with locals. They have an outdoor area as well but we preferred to sit indoor in the A/C section. The decor is not that posh but the people were very friendly, especially the lady who took our orders. She spoke reasonable English. Service was prompt and they accept card.
They tend to get crowded from 9 Pm onwards. Also have a take away service.
We walked back to Luigi's place around 11 PM without facing any trouble apart from being followed by a few stray dogs !!
So in a nutshell: Strongly recommended.
