“Food is good when/if you get it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Although highly recommended and conveniently located, the waiters did not speak any foreign language and were overwhelmed by a large group of guests, although there was only 10 of us! Messed up several orders, didn't bring two at all, and when reminded, brought a think steak instead of what we ordered. I had to talk to a manager not to be charged for those two orders and arrived way too late and were not what we wanted. Hopefully, this was one time misunderstanding.

“Wedding of our dreams!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

We got married in Paestum on July 11th and had the wedding reception and dinner at Ristorante Nettuno.
We chose Ristorante Nettuno, because of its fantastic location, near the ancient greek temples and because of the wonderful food.

It was a magical and unforgettable experience.
Delicious food, a beautiful garden overlooking the temples, elegant and classy tables and floral arrangements, and impeccable service.
All of our guests told us (and still tell us) how impressed they were by the location and the food.
The owner of Ristorante Nettuno, Signora Pina, is a wonderful person. She was incredibly friendly, professional and patient and helped us in every possible way with the organization of our wedding.

We had the wedding of our dreams at Ristorante Nettuno, and would recommend it to everyone who is dreaming of a wedding in Italy, or who just wants to enjoy a delicious lunch at a unique location.

“A pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2012 via mobile

Tucked away at the back of the Greeks ruins of Paestum is a beautiful restaurant and bar named Nettuno. We stopped there for a refreshment break during our site tour and were pleasantly surprised with this elegantly appointed spot. Although we did not eat in the restaurant, choosing instead to have panini and birra in the bar followed by caffe and gelato. The wait staff were very polite and professionally dressed, the atmosphere was charming and we got away with a quick bite for 20 Euros.

“Elegance amidst the ruins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

Ristorante Nettuno is an old farmhouse that was built from the walls of the ancient city of Paestum. It sits right on the edge of the archeological site, which you can enjoy from the terrace. The restaurant is upscale and elegant. It boasts of restoration by Musssolini in 1929. The terrace is informal and inviting; drinks, cappuccino, an enormous Caprese salad, and gelato are reasonable and delicious, and of course they have the incomparable Italian , which is especially refreshing after a stroll around the ruins, which are actually the best preserved Greek temples from the 5th-6th centuries BCE. An absolute find.

“Try the garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

We opted for a more casual and simple lunch in the garden (caprese, wine etc.) instead of in the more formal restaurant. Unlike the garden service, the restaurant has an extensive menu. Our food,however, was excellent, and the waitress (Hi Gabriella!) was extremely nice. We walked over through the ruins, from the gate near the museum (and near our hotel, Il Granaio) which was at the opposite side of the ruins. Very pleasant day. The ruins are spectacular, and we nearly had them to ourselves.
