Whilst the the title of the review is "NOT TO BE MISSED" it is very easy to do so. The restaurant is tucked away in a dark side street but find it and you wont be dissapointed. From the moment you arrive the experience is very special indeed. The food and service is of the highest quality and incredibly good... More

Tucked out of the way down a back street this intimate restaurant is one of the best we have eaten in. The food and service are superb and we can especially recommend the 'taster menus'. The fact that you will almost certainly have to book your table and that it is a favourite with the locals says it all.

My partner and I enjoyed a fantastic leisurely meal here. Can't fault any of the courses we had. We stared with steak tartare and stuffed aubergine. Then the fish and chips and beef and potatoes for our main course. The steak was cooked exactly as I requested and tasted great! The table bread, amuse bouche and plate of fancies were... More

Saw this restaurant on TripAdvisor otherwise we would'nt have found it. The place itself is magical, we sat in a garden in a back street of Santa Maria. Great location! We chose the carpaccio, tuna steak and beef. We were offered an appetizer of the house, as well as a plate of different sorts of bread, all homemade by the... More

This restaurant seems to be a well hidden secret in Santa Maria del Castellabate. But hopefully it will gradually attract the number of guests it deserves. It is not easy to find, in a back street right but may be entered via the hotel Residenza d’Epoca 1861 at the seafront in the old town. We had the most delightful meal,... More

This quaint restaurant is tucked away in a quiet backstreet. We were led outside to a beautiful courtyard at the rear of the restaurant. The waiter seemed a little reserved at first but became animated the more we chatted. We ordered antipasti first, followed by a main course. We were served an 'appetiser' on the house. We ordered wine recommended... More

As you enter you go up the candle lit stairs to walled garden restaurant, beautiful setting. The food itself is gorgeous with wonderful tasting dishes that deliver on stunning flavours. The styling of the dishes is the best in the town they take their time to make everything look great. The service is paced at sensible rate for such good... More

Having been in Santa Maria Di Castellabate for a week and enjoyed some delicious food we can honestly say that this has been the most delectable and interesting meal of our stay. The menu offered a variety for different tastes - both fish and meat - and presented in such a thoughtful way. Each mouthful was a taste sensation but... More
