As we were the first customers this evening we had the undivided attention of La Nonna - the power behind this superb restaurant - as she sat in her command centre in the corner.

Great woman at the head of a great operation I this family run restaurant on a street just below the level of La Corso. The service was superb; the food was excellent and traditional; the wine was good; and the ambience was warm.

Don’t dither - just go!

Tucked away on a side street off the Corso, Da Nello is well worth seeking out. Small, rather noisy, presided over by Nonna in the corner nearest the kitchen, this is a restaurant favoured by the locals, for takeaways as much as sit- down meals. There can be no better recommendation. Our pizza and risotto were both very good, service was friendly and swift, the dessert was sublime: a sort of chocolate truffle cake. By the time we left, chairs had been put outside in the street for the queue for tables. Go early, or book.

We were here in 2013 so it was great to revisit and discover that, thank heavens, somethings in life get even better!!! We squeezed in next to a lovely Italian couple accompanied, or so we thought, with their mother, a lovely lady in her eighties. Over the evening, everyone came up to her and kissed her hand or cheek while she smiled approvingly at our choices. Eventually, everyone else has gone and it’s her and us!!! Turns out she’s Nello’s mother — a classic Italian Nonna — and it’s her recipes we’re eating. And they were so good!!! Salted anchovies accompanied by finely sliced raw zucchini and then stuffed squid and and pappardelle with sword fish and aubergine. A bottle of local sparkling white wine, amazing bread from the pizza dough which is their other speciality — lots of noise and authentic Italian atmosphere. You can’t fake this and it’s simply perfect and affordable!! Go with the flow and live the Italian dream.

Helpful staff and quickly served food. Mostly pasta and pizza dishes, but all tasty and interesting. The lady serving us was delightful despite being rushed off her feet. Make sure to book as they do takeaway too and are very busy

We walked in one evening during our stay in Castellabate Santa Maria based on prior reviews.

The hostess found us a table straight away even though we didn’t book.

They make excellent pizzas and are known for it. We shared a started for stuffed squid (stuffed with broccoli), a pizza, a salad and two fried zucchini flowers.

All in all very good food, excellent warm service with a smile and a good local dining place when you are visiting the area. Making a booking is advised on some days.
