Food was always excellent, we went 4 times on a recent holiday. Chef felt like a friend from the start. His home made ravioli is probably the best thing we have ever tasted, though the deserts come close second. The tiramisu will spoil you for all other versions! Really good ingredients perfectly combined and cooked. Wish we lived a little... More

As many others have said, the chef came out and greeted us and discussed what we wanted to eat that night. He told us what they didn't have and what was replacing those things. We ended up ordering some of those menu changes. I had the Ravioli with cheese and codfish. It sounded odd but I trusted what others had... More

I see we're not the only ones who enjoyed this restaurant so much that we ate there twice. If you find yourself on Italy's Amalfi coast in Vietri sul Mare, Il Principe & la Civetta is a must if you want a change from ubiquitous local dishes found in all the tourist areas. The menu is in English and Italian,... More

By far our favourite meal whilst on holiday. The desserts were fantastic too! We felt so welcomed and the chef was very friendly. My dad & I got chatting to the chef to discover he'd visited Cornwall in England in the past. An amazing dining experience.

La Civetta is run by Antonio and his wife. She does the desserts and he does the rest. The menu is a starting point for a discussion with Antonio about what you want to eat. He takes great care with his ingredients making sure the fish is absolutely fresh. When. We liked the food so much that we went back... More

We went to this restaurant a couple of days ago and have been there every day since. The chef was excellent, he came out and talked to us about what we wanted and as a result just cooked up some delicious typical food that wasn't on the menu. The waitress was very friendly too and the whole experience was delicious... More

We ate in three restaurants in Vietri Sul Mare and this was our clear favourite. Antonio seems to really love hosting. Everything was freshly made and tasted delicious! It was so good that we came back for lunch the next day.

A couple of fussy Londoners and we couldn't fault this place. Amazing, authentic food cooked by a lovely family. We went 2/4 nights in Vietri Sul Mare. The other places we had dinner didn't come close. A must.

Went for dinner with my wife. We both thought it was probably the best meal we had ever had (and, at age 75, we have had a lot!). The owner, Antonio, is a gracious and delightful host as well as a superb chef. The next night 8 others in our tour group went and came back with the same enthusiastic... More
