This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and what a winner.
The food was excellent and the portions were nice size.
I had a pasta dish with mussels while my wife had a local fish.
My appetizer of fried veggies was outstanding.
The homemade cheesecake was to die for.
For sure I will go back there.

Another top TA recommendation, good enough to visit twice. Had some really nicely prepared food here at a good price.

I am giving only 5 stars because the television running and the very bright lights. We had the antipasta of the house, two pasta dishes, and for the main dish steak and sliced squid. Everything was great - especially the pasta. We had the steak with mushroom sauce which was very tasty. The cook definitely enjoys to create food to be enjoyed including the extra appetizer surprise. The waiter was very friendly and helpful - even if you do not speak Italian. The house wine (vino rosso de casa) is a bit on the low end and I would recommend to choose something different as they have a good selection.

From the outside we wouldn't have chosen this place opposite the station but it was definitely the best of our three meals. We sat on a raised terrace and had excellent food at a surprisingly cheap price.

Had a couple of lovely meals here. Apart from the fish which were excellent the fillet steak served on a "stein" was really excellent, tender and perfectly cooked. The pastas which we tried were all very good and the "chefs choice" antipasti was a good choice to share.Staff were helpful and friendly and the chef very interested to hear how we found the food.Would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a nice meal in Pompeii.
