Went here for a Valentines day date and thought the service was excellent. From help selecting a dish and adapting it to a veggie one, attentiveness during dinner to the extra chilli drizzle and allowing us to take the table rose as a memory. We...More

Was rather excited about the thought of visiting here, but a little let down once inside. The atmosphere was a little flat, even though it was Valentines - not even a candle on the table. Bread to start, which was well made, but I expected...More

Childhood friends Enzo Espedito welcome you to a little taste of Napoli with Osteria Posillipo Pizzaria ��� quite likely one of Canterbury���s friendliest restaurants. Decorated in relaxing woods, this light, airy space has the added bonus of being located near the Marlowe Theatre. An in-house wood-fired stone oven is visible from the open-plan kitchen on the ground floor, allowing hungry diners watch their pizzas bubble away the traditional way. Not in the mood for pizza? Traditional Italian favourites are the name of the game here, including fresh, homemade pasta like spaghetti a vongole.
