We stopped here for lunch with low expectations given that it is right next door to the Museum. We wanted a light but leisurely lunch. The staff was very efficient. We had very good pasta dishes (classic spaghetti with white clams - rarity in the...More

It seems from the reviews people don't differentiate between the 'proper' restaurant and the garden 'cafe'. We went to the latter, and had a very good experience. In-between lunch and dinner hours did not expect much, but the sole server was friendly and tried her...More

Next to the Paestum archeological site can recommend two “feeding stations” I visited recently. Watch it – there seem to be two places using the “Museo” – one is just a roadside café – the one I'm talking about is the “real thing”. On a...More

Just what you want after visiting the temples. There are many delicious flavours of icecream - I had hazelnut (nocciola) and coconut.

After the crowds in Rome, Naples, Pompeï and the Amalfi Coast, the best place to be is Paestum! Go and discover yourselves! And do what the locals do, enjoy an icecream at this bar-gelateria, heaven on earth guaranteed!

We had a superb here! No frothy sauces, weird combinations or square plates - just excellent produce, well cooked and served with care - every thing a restaurant should be. We wanted to go back back for dinner but apparently it is lunch only. God...More
