“Superb!!!”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

It's not so much that this little Osteria is hard to find (it's on the centrals square of the village) it's just that few people go this deep into the Cilento mountains. Luckily they have a few (excellent) rooms as well so you can have some wine with your meal, even a grappa or two and while away the evening on this enchanting little square without having to worry about driving home or back to your hotel..
But let's discuss the cooking, as it is remarkable. This place is included in the Slow Food Osterie Guide so they obviously stick to the rules of local, seasonal ingredients, firmly rooted in the Cilento culinary traditions. But where other restaurants in this area serve simple wholesome mountain food, the cook here tries out different things every day. She's sweet and shy as she comes to the table to explain one delicacy after another but het cooking is just great. Very imaginative, with a lightness that's rare to find in mountain cooking. I don't recall the individual dishes (we stayed 2 nights) but course after course was a pleasant surprise, totally unique. And the breakfast? Even that was a culinary feast with mozzarella with a peach & basil sauce that I'd like to travel back to Cilento for.
