The fish is always fantastic. The desserts are wonderful. The fresh mozzarella is the best. I highly recoomend this as a fantastic place to... More

We ate here with our entire family (party of 12 with 4 children). The ambient is all right, but the real nice touch is that the restaurant is very near the sea. We were out of the main holiday season so we enjoyed an absolutely fab empty beach with our children under a glorious dec sun. In terms of food,... More

Maybe it was a bad day for the chef or he was just busy, but the dishes we got were tasteless and above average level in Paestum. They were nicely "designed" but did not correspond at all to our expectations knowing the local cuisine rather well. The young waitresses were so cold and never smiled. It created a strange icy...

We were really impressed by the attention that was given to us in every moment of our stay both at the beach in the morning and then at lunch, before our Paestum visit ( which was also stupendous ). I really recommend any visitor to stop by, you will be very happy you did!!!

We spent here an entire day. The lunch organised by the Mandetta family was amazing, introducing foreign people to the local dishes. The attention to the customer was superb.

I think the reviews are divided on this one, but I thought the seafood dishes were actually quite good. Although the prices were more than what we usually spend on a trip, for a special night out it can be nice. The decor is nice, and both seafood and pasta dishes were very good. We had an excellent local wine,... More
