I love the food here. It's one of the most authentic Italian restaurants in the UK and competes well with anything I've had in London. In the Summer a leisurely lunch outside under the canopy overlooking the sea and you could be anywhere in the Med. always try the specials, the fish and meat dishes are exquisite. Pasta, pizza, gnocchi... More

Perfect atmospheric Italian Resteraunt of the highest standard right on the main seafront promenade. Full of authentic charm. A great kettle place perched between 2 big eateries. The menu is extensive and the food superb. Great plates kept coming out of the kitchen. Each mouth watering. The wine list has a great selection. We went for the Orvieto Classico. Complimented...

This restaurant has been here for years and they have clearly got the ambiance right. Cosy atmosphere, good attentive staff but unfortunately we did not think the food was as good as it should have been. This is the second time we have been and we have agreed we won't be back. The sharing insalate starter was tasty but our... More

We used to live in Canterbury and would eat at Posillipo when we could. And so naturally we had to try the one here. Quality is the same . We both had gnocchi for a main and everything tested balanced and fresh. Make sure you have pizza bread for a starter . Worth the calories . We had the tomato... More

Visited Posillipo for lunch a few days ago with our daughter, son-in-law and four grandsons (ages 4-11). The staff were excellent in looking after the children in spite of the restaurant being extremely busy. The usual assortment of Italian dishes one would expect to find in a Trattoria such as this... pizzas; pasta; assortment of meat and fish dishes, however,... More

The atmosphere is good which compensates for the highish prices (compared to fantastic Italian restaurant Il Tricolore in Ramsgate, at least). Shared antipasti starter was good, my husband's pizza also generous and authentic. I ordered my favourite pasta with clams but over half the shells were empty. The rest were small and gritty. I pointed it out to the waiter... More

Went early evening on Christmas eve and the restaurant was very busy, the food was generally very good, and although there was one item not up to their usual standard, the staff were excellent and rectified the problem very well. Didn't get any Black pepper with my main but they were very busy and to be honest I should have... More

Went on the insistence of our friends 6 year old, and what a great job we did! Early evening on a very cold and windy Saturday when visiting old friends in broadstairs. We were already a few pints in so quite...noisy. No table booked, but they quickly seated all 8 (4 drinkers, 4 kids) upstairs with no fuss at all.... More
