Description: Opening days: from September 15 to June 1, we are open in the evening, Friday Saturday and Sunday. At lunch only on Sundays and reservation is required.Our pizza:is the result of careful research aimed at enhancing the flavors of Cilento.The dough, natural leavening, is composed of a mixture of four different types of flours that makes it particularly tasty and at the same time lightweight and highly digestible, thanks to the presence of buckwheat flour.It is cooked in a wood oven, started with bundles of olive and "munnuliato" with myrtle leaves "a murtella" in the finest tradition of Cilento, to bring out the aromas.Our dishes:you will not find a set menu but are always different, depending on the fresh produce sourced and the inspiration of the kitchen chef. We are available for private parties and receptions.

Stayed at La Civetta (small hotel) for 3 nights in September 2014 and used the restaurant on the last night. It seems to only open on weekends but it's definitely worth the wait. The food was so enjoyable (and the stay too) that my mate Johnny and I wished we were staying longer in Agropoli. The traditional pizza (cooked in a wood-fired pizza oven) is melt-in-the-mouth and we also enjoyed the beef braised in Aglianico wine and the ravioli too. The home-made tiramisu dessert was F.A.B! There's plenty of advice on what local wines to choose. We enjoyed a bottle of Aglianico Del Vulture from the Basilicata region, one of Italy's finest red wines. The restaurant is a family run affair with the matriarch in charge of the cooking (behind the scenes) so the food really is just as "Mamma used to make". The service was very friendly and attentive. Can't fault this restaurant. If you're staying in or around Agropoli, it's worth a 15/20 minute journey to the top of the hill where you'll find La Civetta. (Put "Via Madonna Del Carmine" into your SatNav, go under the railway bridge, turn right at the small roundabout and almost immediately after turn left following signs).

Not really sure why they call in pizzeria here on the front page. They make pizza but there is so much come to come for. First of all it's an escape from stone town to the hill with fantastic view and fresh air (make sure you take some wrap or long sleeves with you to feel comfortable). The tables on the terrance are simply great, very quite and peaceful place. The cuisine is very special. By saying that I mean that generally food in Italy is delicious but very simply cooked and served. Here it's not at all simple, all is cooked and served by very creative and professional crew. The portions are large so be careful! We'll definitely come back.
