My partner and I came here for lunch, and we were the only ones there during that service. However, that worked for us since we had the waiter's undivided attention. I ordered the paccheri with potatoes and mussels, which was delicious. My partner ordered spaghetti...More

Didn't find the staff particularly welcoming on arrival, however, our 2 pasta dishes were very tasty. We had slow cooked beef and a beef ragu. The best meal of 3 nights in Vietri.
