Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wonderful location on the harbour edge, very attractive decor and atmosphere; welcoming, helpful and attentive staff; excellent menu, and delicious fresh fish, seafood, pasta. And of course wine and beer. Can't wait to go back next year.

Great food, simply presented in a beautiful location. We had the crab special first night and it was so good we rebooked for a further 2 visits. Sitting on the deck, watching the sun go down over Capri with attentive service and a reasonably priced...menu and wine list, what more can you ask for?More

Group of 9 walked up and promptly seated in 2 tables. Sea and sunset views. Food portions and taste were superb but all seafood. Only negative was understaffed and food came out with no plan. Some entrees and drinks came out quickly others waited over...an hour. Be prepared to spend 2-3 hrs there. I’m sure In season and a smaller group would correct this. Food excellentMore

Had a lovely dinner here last night. Perfectly cooked Grilled sea bass and a prawn linguine with 2 huge langoustines . Both were really tasty, nothing too fancy just good simple cooking. Staff all very friendly . After having had lots of over complicated food...whilst away this was perfect. There is only fish on the menu so not good if you don’t want fish Will definitely return .More

Great food, friendly people, amazing view. A bit more gentle and stylish than many places here but not too expensive.

This is the place to experience the taste of fresh and well prepared seafood i Santa Maria C. The pasta is excellent with succulent and typical southern Italian flavours. Try the salad with polpo or the linguine with lobster. Mare!

If you eat here book a table right on the water’s edge. The food is above average and among the best we had, but not the best. The menu is very limited and I wonder if the chef gets bored producing the same things every...day. I wonder if they have ever thought of having a daily special. We don’t like to rush, but on one visit the service was especially slow, especially when waiting to pay the bill. The other thing to be aware of it they charge a compulsory 10% service charge.More

We came here as a party of six friends for dinner. It's a good, if unremarkable, seafood restaurant, right on the front in Santa Maria. The location is spectacular. If you get a table on the terrace located on the quay at the right time,...you can watch the sun set over Capri.More

This is a beautifully situated restaurant right on the waterfront of Santa Maria di Castellabate. There is seating in and outside the main restaurant, and then extra seating on a terrace on the quayside about 25m away. We sat there as the sun went down,...and it was a wonderful setting. The menu was somewhat limited, and the lack of English speaking staff or translations on the menu made choosing a little difficult. I'm not complaining about that - I should have learn't more Italian! The food was not bad, but portions were small. I had a langoustine linguine and my wife some fresh sea bass, but we both needed a little more food before bed (in fact, after drinks at Antipasteria Del Corso we demolished the kid's left-ver pizza from Pasta e Pizze da Nello. The terrace was simply too far away from the main restaurant and seating area to be properly served by the taciturn staff.More
