“So, so...”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

This was certainly not a bad restaurant - I doubt to call it good either...
The plusses: An unusual and creative menu, very different from the usual Campania kitchen. Great choice of bread. An enthusiastic owner. And foodwise: original dishes prepared with local ingredients.
Unfortunatelly there were also some serious minusses of which the most important one regards the relationship between the quality and the price of food, drinks and service offered. € 20 For an average size and quality steak is out of line in this region of Italy. € 3 for a very, very small glass of housewine is too much. € 3 for a bottle of mineral water is high compared to all restaurants we ate in two weeks time. We also found many dishes from the menu not to be available. In addition the waiter -with only 3 tables to serve that evening, was slow and far from friendly. All in all a so, so experience. The current top rating for this restaurant in the Salerno region is based on our experience overrated.



Minus: meat + price, wine, waiting, main dish, missimg dishes

“Finally a real restaurant”
Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Other eateries on the Amalfi coast are much of muchness. Here there is a real level of ambition in the cooking. And the chef takes a genuine interest in his guests. Warm place ... Although hard to spot from the street, seems to be deliberately discreet about its presence.

“Peerless regional cooking in Salerno”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

After a faultless multi course lunch in this unassuming restaurant around the corner from the Duomo I told the charming owner Mr Rispolo that I had not eaten as well in Salerno since a memorable dinner (with mind bowing pasta with fresh anchovies) years ago in a now closed restaurant called 'Il Cenacolo'. He laughed and informed me it was also his place!
The ingredients were all absolutely top notch, courgette flower fritters, tuna mousse with fior di latte mozzarella and raw tomato sauce, amazingly rich pasta with confit onion and more courgette flowers and firm semolina ravioli filled with aubergine mousse stood out. Try this place for an authentic taste of Salerno and the Cilento region.
