“Not Worth It”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

People talk about this restaurant because it has a Michelin star, so maybe I am spoiled coming from Los Angeles where we have many Michelin rated restaurants. We stayed at the hotel so we ate there twice. Both times I was not impressed with my meal and cannot understand why anyone would recommend this restaurant if you are not staying at the hotel. It is just not worth the walk. Service was great and the view is spectacular- so it gets 5 stars for those.

Upon arriving twenty minutes early for our reservation expecting to grab a drink, it took that amount of time to be addressed with only one couple ahead of us. Arriving on the lighter side of sunset, we were lucky enough to grab a table on the balcony with the beautiful view of the Amalfi coast.

A book of a menu was offered by a very helpful member of staff who welcomed us to our table. The fouur course set meals were a little large for our usual tastes so we skipped to a simple two course selection (even though with apertifs we essentially had a four course meal).

For main our choices were Lamb ribs in a pistaccio coating and a venison steak in pastry, both of which wowed with teste and presentation.

This is a 5 starred michelin restaurant and well deserved. The food is only shown up by the views and despite it being a very windy evening, nothing felt more special for our honeymoon meal than sat on the highest point of Ravello with great food.

The wine selection is vast and there is a catalogue on offer. We went with the Pinot Grigio which was surprisingly cheaply priced at 36 euro a bottle but was a great match with the food.

Dessert was a trifle for my partner and a lemon cake but with a twist, served in a shape of art and tasting devine, the menu was nothing short of perfection.

Topped off with a coffee (to which we later realised we had only been served one) and the glowing setting of the moon, the total bill for a two course meal and bottle of wine was 165 euro. Set menus including taster wines were set at 85 euro per person.

Despite a rocky start, Il Flauto di Pan was nothing short of beautiful and will be very hard to beat for its views and food alike.

“Fancy, but mostly tasteless food”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

The view, the service and the predinner drinks in the garden were all great. The food was more of a disappointment: the dishes looked smashing when they were served, but the food on them was practically tasteless. Cannot remember when I last had such a tasteless lamb chop or smoked fish - or a fish cake that looked and tasted like a sponge. I wonder how this restaurant got a Michelin star? Not even close to others I have been to.
Probably better to go there for lunch, have a simple and much less expensive dish - and enjoy the view and the garden.

WE were fortunate to eat in this lovely restaurant and definitely had the best table in the house. The table with an arched window looking out to sea was truly amazing. The service was impeccable and the food was good. We decided to go for the small meat menu and the wines to match. They were very good although I would say that the wines were not the best of their category they certainly were well matched. We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening with plenty of space and privacy as everyone else opted for the terrace outside but it was so crowded outside. Inside we had the view and the feeling of being outside but also the space. A memorable visit to a lovely restaurant which I highly recommend
