This was a very nice place to eat lunch after touring the Greek ruins. The people working there were very friendly and obliging and we had delicious pizza and a very tasty hamburger. Lots of food at a reasonable price

Stopped here for lunch after touring the ruins. Had a liter of their house wine and shared four pizzas among five people, plenty of food. Wine was good enough and we really enjoyed the pizza.

We stopped here after spending almost an hour in the museum, The location is superb and the two outdoor seating areas are a draw. We sat in the sun outside in the plaza in December. We kept our lunch simple a mixed salad which was very good with tasty local ingredients and the caprese salad, in which the mozzarella was... More

We went to this Pizzeria for lunch after visiting the Greek Temples. We chose this particular place because it was off the main street and looked a little less touristy. Although small from the outside, there is actually a large seating area at the back in the garden. There was a good selection of Pizzas on the menu freshly cooked... More

We weren't sure about a place that was so close to a major tourist attraction so Bar Pizzeria la Basilica was a nice surprise. The tomatoes on the caprese salad tasted like they had come straight from the garden, and the pizzas that my husband and daughter had were very good. They served interesting Belgian-style beers from Agrado and their... More

The pizza herer is truly awful. Avoid....the wine was almost undrinkable and overall it was probably the worst place I've been to in over a month in Italy.

After we finished our tour of the Greek ruins, my wife and I walked across the street and had a nice lunch in their outdoor seating area. We shared a pizza (what else?) and a large bottle of water. Pizza was large enough for two to share. Very good. Friendly service. Our bill was under €15.

Close and convenient for touring the Paestum museum and temple park as it's right beside it. We had four pizzas and all were lovely. Reasonably priced and good service with English spoken.
