Description: Childhood friends Enzo Espedito welcome you to a little taste of Napoli with Osteria Posillipo Pizzaria ��� quite likely one of Canterbury���s friendliest restaurants. Decorated in relaxing woods, this light, airy space has the added bonus of being located near the Marlowe Theatre. An in-house wood-fired stone oven is visible from the open-plan kitchen on the ground floor, allowing hungry diners watch their pizzas bubble away the traditional way. Not in the mood for pizza? Traditional Italian favourites are the name of the game here, including fresh, homemade pasta like spaghetti a vongole.

“The best of the three!”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

We have been to the faversham, broadstairs and Canterbury one many times and as usual this is the very best one. Broadstairs suffers from horrific consistency issues sometimes but not here! Starters were amazing, real creamy mozzarella and bruschetta. The mains, meatballs, were cooked perfectly and our son literally woolfed down his pasta. We all had three courses with the desserts a major delight! I'd highly reccomend!

“A really genuine taste”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We go to this restaurant every time we are in Canterbury. We have lived in the area all our lives and love it. The staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful. The food tastes authentic and is always tasty. It is very family friendly - we have even been there when the owner has been in with his young family and Mother visiting from Italy.

The service was very good, nice friendly staff. Quite a romantic atmosphere. I had a special and it was great to see something different on the menu than the usual chain fodder. Really good food

“Early evening delight.”
Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Saturday evening, impromptu trip to Canterbury without the minors in tow meant we were free to choose whatever food we wanted. Saturday evening in Canterbury is a difficult time to get a table if you haven't pre-booked, luckily we were turned away from other places and stumbled upon this gem of a place. A great setting, lots of real character, a wall of wine bottles and a proper pizza oven on full show. Better than the Saturday night trash on T.V. They fitted us in before the main rush and then let us eat hassle free. The food was excellent, I mistakenly ordered Skate (don't ask) and was so glad I did. My wife had Gnocchi and it was quite possibly the best Gnocchi we've had. The staff were attentive but not pushy and well mannered. Definitely a place to return to with friends.
