Hotel Parsifal we would like to thank Tony and his family for a very warm and helpful welcome.
We went to Ravello to find a wedding venue for my daughter.
Breath taking view and very friendly and very helpful hotel.
Worth having a room with a view this is recommended.

Our second visit to the Hotel Parsifal and the restaurant continues to delight. Too wet & cold to sit on the verandah, but the view from inside is still amazing. Leonardo , Luciano & Rafael looked after us brilliantly and even tolerated our speaking Italian.
Every meal was delicious, especially the pasta courses - ravioli & pasta with clams were our favourites.

After walking round Ravello during the day we saw this restaurant and thought looking at location etc it was worth going for dinner. Admittedly you dont get the view at night which loses a mark, but the indoor restaurant was not a nice place to be. The breakfast food was out cereals etc. there was a pumpkin sat on table waiting for someone to do something with it. We had the 4 course meal which was OK but €120 euros later with house wine we were very disappointed. Maybe lunch with a view would have been better option. I know this place gets good reviews but the reviews must be judged on view and not substance.

Dear guest,

Thank you having been our restaurant guest and for having enjoyed your candle light dinner menu where, you were correct in mentioning 4 courses meal but, you left out the aperitif which it is also included.

We accept to lose a mark with our indoor restaurant since, as you have already mentioned, you don’t get the view in the dark but only the lighted village of Minori and Maiori from 350 meters above the sea level ...and perhaps the moon shining on the sea once every sometimes ..but that is fine.

Regarding the “breakfast food” we find nothing wrong to have our TIDE “corner breakfast table”
with where little sealed package of cereals, little honey pots, selection of tea bags, fresh fruit are on display. Not less important, a nice BIO pumpkin from our own garden displayed on a nice ceramic plate it would be accepted even from any interior design architect, of course, it does not mean that you have to like it but likely you are the only one too.

…..Your last comment it is a bit controversial since, your main complain is on the 120,00 Euro charged for dinner therefore, I would consider it as substance factor but, then, you advise future reviewers to judge on the view…and not on substance…..???

Never the less, we hope to see you back again in summer time, we will be delighted to offer you a nice table by the rail on our little outside terrace with a brighter view… as long as you will let us display our own winter vegetables in our indoor restaurant!

Thank you for your time.

Antonio and family

All the best of Italy comes together in this charming restaurant in one of my favorite towns in the world - Ravello! Situated inside the Hotel Parsifal on a cliff side high above the Mediterranean, Ristorante Raffaele is a small terrace where wonderful food is served by a caring and friendly staff.

We dined here twice during our stay in Ravello and both meals were terrific. From the pasta course to the fish and meat, the menu was varied, the food quality outstanding and the view and service second to none.

One of the things we were looking forward to the most when planning our trip to Italy, food and wine were at the top of the list. Our dinners at Ristorante Raffaele delivered everything we were looking for in delightful, memorable dining experiences during our trip.

Thanks to Antonio and his brothers ... looking forward to the time when we can return!

Mind you.....we only ate lunch here but the ambiance together with the food (and my beautiful wife of course) made this meal one to remember. Everything was so fresh and prepared with that artistic flare that dazzles the eyes as well as your pallet.
