“Delicious food and excellent service in a gorgeous setting”
Reviewed June 8, 2011

This was, by far, our favorite restaurant in Ravello. So great we had dinner there 4 nights! We always chose to eat outside in the pizzeria which was beautiful. The quattro formaggi pizza and fried calamari (not on menu, but made special for us) were the best we ever had. Also the house specialty pasta --spaghetto vecchia cantina was out of this world. Gnocchi was also delicious. We found the food and the wine--a very good local red, Sammarco, I believe--to be an excellent value. Perhaps one of the best and our favorite qualities of this restaurant was the friendliness of the staff and the way they treated us like family--not tourists. We had the same waiter every night--Vincenzo--and found him very endearing, not to mention an excellent server. Simply put, awesome food, excellent service, great value.

“Great food for a great price and can't beat the service.”
Reviewed May 23, 2011

Get the Mussels! We ate here three times during our 5 days in Ravello. We made friends with all the staff and received top notch service. The pizza and pasta were both amazing. Very modest pricing.

“great night out”
Reviewed December 1, 2010

Great restaurant. We were in Ravello to get married & choose this restaurant to take our party of 12 to one of the evenings. The owner was wonderful, guiding us through the menu & making recommendations, & adapting to 2 veggies & 2 "plain Irish" eaters. The food & wine was lovely, but it was the atmosphere & the service which made it one of our best nights out in Ravello,& the owners enthusiasm & passion for his food shone through. Highly recommend.

“Seafood risotto like never tasted before”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

I've just come back from a trip to Ravello for a wedding and myself and the wedding party ate at this restaurant several times. I never has a bad meal, I ate wild clam pasta many times and the supreme was the seafood risotto, oozing with clams, mussels and squid.

As a trained chef I know what I like, and food like this, washed down with local Sammarco Bianco, served by lovely staff who remembered what you liked, is what I like!!!
