This is fine dining and they do a great job. We ordered the tasting menu and the food was spectacular and well thought out. The reason I won't give the fifth star is because of ambiance. They are in a nice setting and could have offered a beautiful water view but the lights were just WAY too bright killing any possibility of a romantic dinner. What is Ravello without romance? the walk to and from was beautiful however..

Dear Sheryl W,

Many thanks for visiting Il Flauto di Pan and for sharing your thoughts with the Tripadvisor community.

It is great to learn that our staff did all they could to accommodate you during your visit. Your words spent in regards to the "spectacular" food and service make us extremely happy and proud.

We appreciate the honesty of your review and feedback, as we are always looking for new ways to improve, in fact, we had installed a light dimmer to adjust the lighting, moreover, as it is getting slightly cold with the autumn coming, we have our fireplace on which creates a very romantic and relaxed atmosphere.

We hope you will not hesitate to visit us again to live once more the dream of Villa Cimbrone and its gourmet experience.

Very best,

Baldo Durazzo

We dined at this fabulous restaurant during our stay at Ravello. We heard about Il Flauto and had high expectations before going there, however the experience of the entire evening never ceased to charm us! To start, the service was superb. For the wine, since they didn't have the bottle on the list, the head sommelier, Giusy, recommended and upgraded for us a fabulous Barolo. Her knowledge and demeanor was impeccable, an impressive professionalism to say the least! We were very happy with her suggestions throughout the evening. The risotto with peach and half grilled prawn melt in the mouth. Squid with Amatriciana sauce with Pecorino cheese was filled with subtle and refine flavors. The lamb was infused with foie gras and pistachio was prepared perfectly. Finally they gave guest many free deserts, colorfully presented. I'll give this place a 2-thumbs up among other Michelin-starred restaurants based on the quality of food, service and the sommelier!

When a restaurant exceeds expectations time and time again, you can't help but write a tripadvisor review to commend them. We came right when it started to rain at the sunset hour. We were two hours early for dinner and the restaurant was not even open yet. The host welcomed us warmly and led us to the gardens with umbrellas where we wandered until sunset. It was divine and beautiful beyond words. It was sooo romantic and I was with my friend. We grabbed delicious drinks and the snacks were simply perfect. We were promptly seated for dinner when we asked. We ordered an appetizer to share and our own entrees. Every dish was delicious. Definitely worth the long walk and advance booking. I would definitely come back again. My friend recommended this place because he wanted to have his wedding here one day. I'm so glad he did. It was one of the highlights of my trip. It was simply unreal and i floated my way through the whole experience.

We saved the best for last, booking a table at Flauto for our last evening in Ravello (you need to book a table as far in advance as possible to ensure a booking). Located in the Villa Cimbrone with lovely dining area with excellent views. Service was of the highest quality yet friendly and engaging. The menu was modern and the Amuse Bouche of lobster and milk foam a rich delight. The breads and oil were of excellent quality and the risotto and pasta starters a real delight. The risotto being an unusual but delicious mix of seasonal local peach, scampi and light cheese that really worked and the rice was delightfully aldente. My partners main course was the Lobster done two ways (expensive) but quite special, rich and delicious. The lemon dessert with riccota was well recommended as was the local wine. The mint infusion and coffee to end was lovely as were the petite fours (although the only weak point was the small blueberry pastry on the petite fours which was too thick and a little heavy - a surprise after delightful light pre-desserts - would have benefited from substitution for a fine quality chocolate alternative. The whole experience was a delight and certainly merited the Michelin accolade - we will definitely return to this fine dining establishment

We are thrilled to read that you appreciated the whole experience of dining at Il Flauto di Pan as well as the thought that went behind some of our extremely creative dishes such as the peach Risotto.

Excellent food, especially the cappelletti and the pasta sorrentina! I received many presents like a dish of lobster with cream, a glass of champagne, a dish of black calamari (from their ink) filled with sauce amatriciana, and finally an extra dessert!
