“Authentic and enjoyable!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

Yes, we were brought here by our guide. But, I have to say the food was excellent. We had the gnocchi and ravioli. Probably the best gnocchi I've ever had. In addition, the local wine was excellent. I am usually very picky!! Yes, the ordering and billing process was a little less formal. But, it really felt like you were being treated as a local not a tourist. After all, we weren't in NYC or Miami :)

“A little pork on your fork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

After a few hours exploring the wonders of Ravello our driver suggested this restaurant for lunch and we were wary but he insisted it would be great and excellent value and it was. Fairly dark and tucked into a side street but the food made up for everything. Our party of 5 enjoyed their meal immensely and I had a pork chop cooked to perfection with garlic and herbs... simply fantastic. We decided against sweets but were bought a tasting plate of their version of tiramisu and it was the best of the many we tried over a five week period in Italy. I will be back to Ravello and will certainly be back to Cumpa Cosimo.

“Not so bad, not so good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

Well...the restaurant is not so "bad". First of all you have to pay attention to the menú: every dish written with a little star means that is not fresh, frozen. But it's written, it's pretty honest. Don't order fish, it's expensive and nothing special. I suggest coniglio and agnello. Avoid alici marinate and homemade wine, it's like water....and it's true that the waiter is particularly nice with foreign girls!

“Poor meat and dishonest billing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Trading on past fame from lonely planet ? some of our meals were ok, but the main course came with nothing on the side, the steak was tough and too rare, and we were endlessly served up stuff not ordered to try. When it was time to pay we were just told a figure that bore no resemblance to what we thought it should be. The mother and son team do it cleverly to make it highly inappropriate to ask for the detail. Interestingly we have found the same comments in the visitors book from previous guests where we are staying.
Our advice, note what you order, make sure you get an itemised bill at the end, and check it, or better still, give it a miss. It's nothing special .

“Great deception - avoid”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We went there after reading the reviews from Lonely Planet. Best restaurant and such...
First of all, the food is average, good fried zucchinis as starters and thats it. most of the dishes are over salty, my mussels were pretty bad, too salty. The pasta mixed was plain bad. A table next door also returned their dishes because it was too salty. The waiter was also very rude, unable to describe the deserts, saying ..you know, its a tart. its a cake....No dish stand out at all, I had better Italian dishes in NY, thats says a lot. The lady was also annoying, we saw too much of her, kind be the attraction for some but for me, was plainly a tourist trap. Avoid.
