Let the chef surprise you with what he has in his kitchen. Food quality is high, atmosphere is a typical Italian tratoria. This looks like a tourist trap but it is not, you have to look around the christmas lighting and other stuff. Just sit down and let the theater start. You will be sure that you have a nice evening with great food.

THE spot!! You will find mostly local in this restaurant.
Take note that they don't serve pizza at lunch, because the wood oven is not in operation

The antipasto was good as was the dessert. The gnocchi with tomatoe sauce was below average. The atmosphere was more trattoria than restaurant. The bill was special though: just one amount and no specifications at all. Food for thought.

I last reviewed Ristorante Tomassini in June 2011 and wished to update visitors from outside Italy about the excellence of their cuisine. I wish to reflect on what makes a good restaurant experience for me? It means eating fresh ingredients, which means seasonal produce; sensing the taste of the primary ingredient when blended with other herbs and garnishes; feeling relaxed at the table and enjoying the character of Antonio and Signore Tomassini, otherwise known as Titi; enjoying a variety of Italian wines selected to compliment old Cilentana dishes.
This is the my continuing experience at Tommasini's and look forward to regular visits in 2012 when I am in the area.

A review does not often invoke Shakespeare but “All the world’s a stage” and Antonio Tomassini, with great support from his family, conducts business at Tomassini’s restaurant much like a player in his theatre of life. Whilst sharing with his guests the recipes, the ingredients and what his next offering will be from his wood-fuelled traditional oven, he also holds forth on subjects of the day.
Whilst Tomassini’s does offer a menu list, the true delight for diners is to allow Antonio to serve you with the food of the day cooked using the freshest of seasonal vegetables and fruit, with fresh fish and crustaceans landed in the nearby port of Agropoli. The pasta course is always a matter of choice, as is the “Secondo” decision whether to eat a fish or a meat dish.
Tomassini specialises in serving “Poor” dishes, more popularly known as “Slow” food, based on the famous Mediterranean Diet or simply the dishes served for generations in the area covered by the Cilento National Park, based on fresh vegetables, pulses and olive oil.
His aubergine grilled with herbs and a sprinkling of breadcrumbs, or alternatively grilled with a piece of mozzarella; leaves of beet served with garlic, and egg and spinach pie or quiche, are just some of his tasty dishes.
His alici (a type of almost raw anchovy marinated in vinegar or lemon juice and served under olive oil) served fresh, or sprinkled with breadcrumbs and baked in the oven, are amongst his many specialities.
His desserts are a wonder to behold: from his Easter pastiera to other rare servings such as traditional “Morselletti”. At Christmas’ he serves six or seven sweets of different nuts covered with white, dark and milk chocolate of his own recipe. Simply delicious.
Finally if you wish to eat traditional good pizza in Tomassini’s then you will enjoy this as well.
