Took parents for dinner as they have not been before and did not disappoint. Starters, mains, cheeseboard, wine and prosecco was all as expected. Great night again

Discovered this lovely Italian while away for a long weekend. We hadn’t booked but went in on the off chance. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly and attentive but without being over the top. Food was excellent. Lovely atmosphere. Will definitely be going back soon...More

Ducked into here whilst shopping. It was recommended by a colleague some time ago. Very warm welcome, prompt service and home made food. Buzzing atmosphere, reasonably priced.

Did not feel like cooking tonight, so stopped for a pizza and a beer on my way home. Was shown to a nice table in the window, with a view of the great charcoal fired pizza oven. I ordered a pizza ortolana. It didn't sound...More

I had been to Posillipo before a few years ago and found it very good. This time service seemed a bit lacklustre, and I had a "special" which was just too obviously a means of using up leftovers. Not that using up leftovers is a...More

Childhood friends Enzo Espedito welcome you to a little taste of Napoli with Osteria Posillipo Pizzaria ��� quite likely one of Canterbury���s friendliest restaurants. Decorated in relaxing woods, this light, airy space has the added bonus of being located near the Marlowe Theatre. An in-house wood-fired stone oven is visible from the open-plan kitchen on the ground floor, allowing hungry diners watch their pizzas bubble away the traditional way. Not in the mood for pizza? Traditional Italian favourites are the name of the game here, including fresh, homemade pasta like spaghetti a vongole.
