“Food and service not to be missed”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We were, at first, put off by the initial look and the word "pizzeria" at the entrance. We had missed the title "Restaurante" due to our experience of many British pizzerias. Being put off by the greeting (or lack of it) at another restaurant, we decided to give La Vecchia Cantina a go. What a difference! We were immediately greeted by smiling staff and made to feel at home. We were advised on the menu by the owner Salvatore, who listened to your every need and suggested what he feels would suit you. The food was out of this world. Most unusual for us we went back on the next night. The food was just as exceptional. An added bonus was the small car park. We would highly recommend this restaurant and it's wonderful host, Salvatore, if you are ever in Ravello.

“Great Food, Great Service, Great Price”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

A great place to make a stop after shopping for ceramics. We were a group of nine, with a bunch of kids, and were accommodated without a delay. Adults and kids had a great meal. Quality is great, and so is the selection. Prices are pretty decent, compare to other places in Ravello. Salvatore was a wonderful host. The service was excellent- attentive and prompt, but yet no one rushed us. Loved it and will be back. Thank you Margherita for recommending adn thank you Salvatore for your hospitality.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Having already been to Florence and Rome where we had really excellent food, we were afraid that coming to a little resort town like Ravello might not offer as many good options -- many of the restaurants are hotel restaurants and the menus are seafood heavy which we're not huge fans of given a shellfish allergy. Fortunately, we found this place our first day through a suggestion of our hotel. We met the owner Salvatore who welcomed us upon arriving and immediately made us feel at home. Our second day, having had a serious unfulfilled craving for pasta puttanesca on our trip and being unable to find it on any local menus we had seen or via the internet, we asked our hotel staff again for suggestions -- they called Salvatore who got his chef to make puttanesca just for us. The puttanesca was beyond delicious as was a fluffy lemon cake highlight. It was so good, we went back our third night for special-order puttanesca again (plus lots of other tasty food). So yeah, we visited this restaurant three times while in Ravello, we loved the people and the food that much. I should add, it was not expensive at all, has a great view, and is next door to his sister's ceramic shop (his sister and her shop are also fabulous). Thank you Salvatore!

“Amazing place to eat”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Salvatore who served us was a great host and is the owner of this special place and I strongly recommend you eat here, a hidden gem in Ravello in the amafli coast.
The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is amazing.
