In side street off main road from Scavi station to the herculaneum ruins. Great welcome, good coffee and nice cakes. Staff were welcoming but their English was not wonderful so we had a few surprises when cakes arrived and were not as we expected. Good value. Outside seating.

An excellent pizza with real value for money as this was shared between two of us. Absolutely brilliant service from lovely staff including Ana and Salvador. Would definitely recommend and go back again ourselves.

Had a ham and mushroom pizza and a beer on my way back from Herculanium and I'm glad I did. The pizza was great with lovely mozzarella, ham and mushrooms. Staff were very friendly (thanks to Anna for grabbing me). Would recommend.

Grabbed by Anna very pleasantly on way to Herculaneum and again on the way back couldn't resist offer of meal and drink for 5 Euro. Spagbol and water and pizza and small beer for 10 euros couldn't be missed sitting in the sun. Portions were a little small but more than adequate for the price we paid.Anna is quite a character and full of persistence but charming with it. She DID take no for answer and left everyone smiling whether they took her up on her offer or not.
Very pleasant end to a good day.

The road leading from Ercolano Scavi train station has three restaurants in a line, each with their touts on the pavement wanting to tempt you in with a special offer of 5€ for pizza and a drink. The nice thing is that because of their location, they can be pretty sure to see you again when you're finished visiting the ruins, so they are also keen to help the visitor with information, on the basis that you might stop on the way back out of gratitude, or something. I say "nice", obviously if you cannot abide being approached on the street you're going to hate it twice!
Anyway, we had no better offers, so decided to stop on our way back. The up-front offer, of course, is not quite so good as they'd have you believe - yes you do get a full-size Margherita pizza for 5€, but the drink is not included. You can have a small bottle of water for an extra Euro, or buy drinks at slightly inflated (compared to central Naples) prices. The pizza was quite good though, and the beer was cold and welcome.
Anna and Salvatore, who grab you out front, are great fun, doing a difficult and often thankless job - if you enter into the banter you'll get good service, and sitting out watching them work is quite good entertainment!
