Description: 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.

“Simple but lovely Italian food”
Reviewed 16 July 2009

Posillipo is one of the few, out of the many Italian restaurants in Canterbury that I would recommend. The waiting staff are welcoming and very sensitive to the needs of diners.

The menu is lined with classic Italian dishes and there is a daily specials board.
