I have seized every opportunity to go here with visitors as it captures the essence of Napoli and how I hope to remember it when my family departs for the States. So far we have gone five times and I have recommended it dozens more!
On our first visit, the grandson of the original owner gave us a brief tour and history of the vineyards. Nestled on Mt Vesuvio with lovely views all round, the restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. They serve just the right amount of cheese, bread, bruschetta, and light pasta with a tasty dessert cake.
The wine is very good to excellent and I usually buy a case of several kinds when we leave. The oil is also good but the wine vinegar is an absolute must have! My daughters were enchanted by the pink color and sweet taste balanced against the relatively sharp cheese and robust oil on homemade bread.
The wine is brought out one small glass after another, briefly described and, of course, pares with the food perfectly!
The service is spot on, friendly but not overbearing and consistently available with the next glass or food plate.
The drive is fairly simple and parking is easy too.
Make sure to go there and, if possible, take the opportunity to visit Herculaneum or Pompeii beforehand. Afterwards, you’ll just want to buy a few bottles for home and relax!
