This restaurant has no sea view, compared with maybe most of good restaurants in Ravello, this restaurant is not so great looking, it is maybe one of the restaurants you wont even notice, but .... if you take the time and go in, you will maybe have one of your best meals ever.
The pasta is amazing, the food in general is, and the service was first class. I've seen all the bad reviews this rest has, i think it depends, maybe they (staff, owner) .. are also people, and didnt like you back.
Remember, just give it a try, you wont be disappointed.

I had to become a member of TripAdvisor simply to get this off my chest: My husband Kevin and I went to this restaurant for lunch but I felt really rotten with a throat infection. I asked for a tea and said I could not eat anything because I found it so painful to swallow. Soup was not on the menu... After some 20 minutes Salvatore, the owner of the restaurant, brought me a huge bowl of wonderful, steaming hot vegetable soup that he had cooked just for me! And it was delicious, too. We have been back there a few times since and the food was always excellent. I have read some really bad reports about this restaurant and its owner and the only thing that I can say to the people who wrote these is: you reap what you sow.

We had really nice meal with my family of four last week. The pizzas were superb, excellent pasta dinners and good service and casual atmosphere! Would definitely come back again when in Ravello.

We arrived into Ravello yesterday and decided to have lunch at La Vecchia Cantina. We were shown to our table by the waiter. I asked what the fish of the day was, the same waiter (wearing red glasses and one earring) explained what it was, but my friend preferred to have sharing dishes between us so he said I'll come back. He came back straight away but we still hadn't decided so he said, I need your order now as I have other customers waiting! There were plenty of empty tables tho' that should have been the clue! Not at all what we were expected to hear, anyway I ordered the carbonara and my friend ordered a shrimp cannelloni. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw my carbonara it was just scrambled egg with a few bits of pasta and small bits of bacon, my friend said hers was dry. We complained about the dishes but to no avail. A beautiful spot spoiled by poor food and an argumentative waiter.
