We visited the restaurant for lunch with our friends. We booked in advance after reading the Trip Advisor reviews for #1 restaurant in Vietri. The 2003 Taurasi wine we ordered tasted aweful so the lady brought a different bottle for us, which was pretty good but of course the bill was 26 euros for the 1 bottle. That is a bit steep for Italian wine.
We ordered various appetizers. My seafood appetizer was a one plate with octopus salad, small pepper stuffed tuna, a thin slice of some metallic fish, and 2 small anchovies, which is not much variety and value for a 10 euro plate. In other restaurants, you get 4-5 different seafood dishes. Octopus salad was very tender but nothing else was special about the sea food appetizer, I don't recommend it. My husband's tuna fillet appetizer was a big portion but very dry as if it came out of a can. I wouldn't recommend that either. Our friend got the octopus with mashed potatoes and that tasted decent.
My riso main dish tasted and smelled so fishy that I couldn't eat past a few bites, though the presentation of it was nice. My husband's pizza was ok, nothing like Naples pizza. My friends' dishes were also just ok (gnocchi and spaghetti with clams). The bill was over 100 euros, which is steep. Just coperto was 3 euros a person. I don't believe I've paid for coperto this much anywhere else in the 3 years that I've lived in Italy. Did we get the tourist prices? Most definitely even though we spoke no English, only Italian. I don't recommend this place as #1 for Vietri. There are far better places in Vietri (Il Principe e La Civetta was by far much better). The atmospher is pretty (no sea view) but the food is average. I was disappointed with the experience.
