Bad service when seated. Focus only on hi-jacking customers from street. Let people smoke inside, because it was to cold outside! Food ordinary

We visited La Vela on a number of occasions during our stay in Maiori. This restaurant became the firm family favourite. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The waiters and waitresses were courteous and professional. Our average bill for a family of 4 (6 year old & 13 year old children) including house wine was about 80... More

La Vela is a great restaurant to visit. I recommend everyone who is vacationing in the area to come. They welcomed us in a warmly manner, the hospitality is amazing, the pizza is the best pizza I've had in Italy. The pasta with scampi was delicious, the scampi was amazing. They made us feel at home and most importantly, they... More

The food was terrible and way way too expensive for the quality. The waiter was pushy and kept asking me and my friends name and where we were staying. He had to know exactly which hotel we were staying. After we told him he asked if we would like to come to the restaurant when they are closed and have... More

The staff were a little too friemdly as they had asked where we were staying, to whic we'd answered vaguely, 'over there' for them to respond with our exact hotel name -... More

We ate twice here, once for lunch where we had very good sized pizzas. Staff at lunch could have been a bit more attentive. We then had an evening meal, rather pricey compared to other places in Maori, but well presented. Staff this time were better considering it was very busy. Good location just across the road from the sea.

Seems like there are mixed reviews of this place and I wonder if the time of year makes a difference. In October it was quiet and staff and service very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and the seafront view beautiful as there was no one to obscure our view of the sea. Will come again.
