We have eaten here on many occasions and never ever been disappointed
The Antipasta della casa in amazingly good with a selection of local produce.
Also on the menu is Antipasta alla Mare. Some strong flavours, eel I would guess, blended with delicate prawns.
The Insalata fantasia is our favourite salad of anywhere, together with one of the Pizza's makes for a lovely lunch time snack.
It's a close contest but I think the pizzas here are the best I have ever tasted.
The service has always been very good. Don't rush from here to go onto your next stop, stay a while longer and treat yourself to one of their delicious desserts. Finish off with an expresso and a Limoncello

Very relaxing. Excellent views! The food was fantastic (Basil and cream sauce over artichokes, gnocchi, and Pizza). Service was good. They were not in your face, but never far away if you needed something. I probably could have looked out over that view all day.

Our tour driver took us there for lunch and the food was quite good. The view is even better. The service was a bit slow but the food was well worth the wait and we were not in a hurry.

We had 3 wonderful dinners here during our stay in Pontone. The view is outstanding, looking across the valley to Ravello and the Villa Cimbrone. You also have a good view of the road below, with its many curves and switchbacks -- much more entertaining as a viewer than as a driver! We always had excellent service with Silvio. The food was wonderful -- my husband enjoyed their calamari so much he ordered them twice. A local melon is used for the Prosciutto & Melone -- it was melt-in-the-mouth smooth ..... forget canteloupe. Pasta, salads and pizza all great too. All generous portions and very reasonably priced.
