The owners are very friendly and the food is outstanding. There is no written menu as the owner will tell you verbally what food they have. I had a traditional pasta with goat cheese which was very simple and the taste was just perfect. They also have a huge selection of wines - try some of the wines from the region. Spent around EUR 25 for a starter and a main dish including a glass of wine and bought a bottle of excellent italian wine (EUR 12) which was absolutely reasonable. If you are in Buenevento this place is a must do - highly recommended - you won't regret it!!!

It will be like returning to your grand Mom's place, and re-trying those tasty and light family home dishes you never found elsewhere. Nunzia, the Owner and Chef, looks and behaves like a family person, and has a talent to set an immediate feeling with people.
Go for the most traditional (and rare!) dishes, like the "cardone" (a winter soup with egg and meat balls in a thistle-savoured chicken stock), the "lagane e ceci" (thick hand-made noodles in a delicate chickpea puree), the "bruschetta con fagioli" (a baked bread slice topped with creamy, gently spiced, beans, in an emulsion of extra virgin olive oil), to mention a few.
Servings are generous, and you are advised to share your dish with your company, to live room enough for some of the typical main courses like the "seppia al forno con patate " (potato-stuffed cattle-fish) or the "maiale con pupacchielle" (pork fillet with vinegar-seasoned red peppers), or the mouth-watering "mozzarella di bufala" and honey-dressed "ricotta" cheeses from local farms.
You will also find a nice selection of wines from the best cellars of Campania region - and the price will be honest.
Don't miss for dessert the "cassatina di S.Marco" and Nunzia's home-made "pastiera" and "baba" to conclude a relaxing and pampering dining experience.

This restaurant is a true delight. The freshest ingredients feature in delicious regional cooking. With no menu, you simply discover what is on offer that day..

My husband and I have a passion for the vegetable cime di rapa - hard to get in London where we live - and to our delight, they had plenty in the kitchen. It came for me with perfectly cooked scialatelli pasta and for my husband with a slightly spicy roasted sausage.

The owner is a delightful woman who sits with you for both deciding what you'll eat and the preparation of the bill, helped by her charming, English-speaking son. We were treated like we were one of the family. To top off the evening, we had a glass of Strega, the Benevento liquor with its essence of citrus and herbs.

When it came time decide where to eat on our second and final night in Benevento, there was no question - we were back to Ristorante Nunzia to savour the wonderful flavours of Capania again. We will be remembering them long into the future.

We asked my hotel for a good restaurant in the city center and they sent me to Nunzia. Just to be sure we asked other 2 people on the main road and all of them recommended me the same place! We arrived early since they open to customers only at 8.00 pm but they were really nice and they made us seat immediately. Nunzia's son speaks perfect english (rare in italy) so we felt immediately comfortable. The food was great. Simple but tasty and freshly prepared. We drank a bottle of a great red wine from the region at a very reasonable price. One of the most positive experience in Italy. Absolutely not to be missed.

We arrived in Benevento late in the evening after a long drive from Sicily.
We were tired and so hungry and asked at the hotel for a place to eat something specific to this area.
At 22:00 we arrived at this small restaurant and immediately could see the difference: there is no printed menu ,the owner-a nice lady looking like a real mother looking for her children-explains you what can you eat accordingly with what she got at the same time.
I just can say that it was our best dinner we had in Italy -hand homemade pasta ,fresh fried fish with vegetables and then some kind of homemade ice cream.
All accompanied by a light wine and at the end we being served with the famous local liquor named "strega". All this was very cheap comparing to other restaurants.
Highly recommended when in Benevento.
