We highly recommend Ceramica Solimene, but reset your expectations before you arrive. This is a working factory. not a retail store. It is a bit of a mess. The service is not the best. But the incredible variety and unbeatable value of the ceramics offered...More

My companion wanted to go here first as it's //one// of the oldest in town. They were impatient, and while the selection was huge, in my opinion the quality is consistently poor. My companion was bent on getting a few plates to match some she'd...More

Impressive building with huge room full of nice pieces of hand-made ceramics, all sort of ceramics - cups and plates, kitchen stuff, vases, etc. Beautiful colours and drawings. I wished I could see also the process of making ceramics but I didn`t dare to ask...More

Finally the nightmare is over, with 2 of the most expensive pieces arrived broken, but, from what follows, I wont even try to have them replaced. Here is my story.  I live abroad and speak Italian (so that you understand that language is not a barrier),...More

We were very impressed by the ceramic tiled exterior of this large building; much art and craftsmanship must have gone into the design and construction. Likewise, for the nearby walkway under the street. Inside, we got just what we expected - a factory warehouse. We...More

I have been visiting Solimene for years and have bought many pieces. I dislike the negative comments re the staff and factory shop. This is not a flash store in US where someone is there to meet and greet and pamper. It's a working factory...More

I can see that the reviews of Ceramica Solimene span a continuum from very positive to very negative. Here's the thing: If you visit Ceramica Solimene with appropriate expectations, you will not be disappointed. It is a factory warehouse, albeit with a very colorful and...More

First I never write reviews but I felt compelled in this case. My friends and I all love Solimene ceramics and have had a few pieces in the States. So despite the negative comments on this site, we ventured to Vietri Sul Mar last week...More

I must say that I was disappointed by most of the ceramics on offer in the region - the quality just isn't there be it for materials, craftsmanship or design. This place has more or less the same items on offer as any other shop...More

After reading the negative reviews, I had to visit Ceramica Solimene to decide for myself. I was looking for typical ceramics at reasonable prices, small pieces to hand-carry home as gifts. My impression? No one on the staff was rude, just busy. This is a...More
