We went this restaurant as it was very near to where we were staying. I can only say that if you have a large appetite then this the place for you. They do metre and half metre pizzas, with a range of toppings.

Delicious food! The chef is the cousin of one of the hotel staff members from the hotel we were staying at! A bit of a drive up the mountain but well worth it. The food was fresh and so tasty! Would definitely go back again!

A little gem of a restaurant which lies in the heart of the village. Empty until about 8.30 the restaurant slowly fills up with locals. We are here three times and were never disappointed.

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of our B&B, and after reading the reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to try. We were eager to try typical rural food and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent ! The service is good and you have a good selection of the typical food. Definitely a must!

Staying inVico Equense, we asked the b&b owner for somewhere to eat nearby. We were delighted to find a family-run restaurant with delicious simple Italian food and welcoming service. So good we went back a couple of times for more and even ordered ´pizza by the metre' to take back home. Rustic and homely with great flavours.

No-brainer: if restaurant packed with locals, join the crowd. Just a few houses down from the B&B, this place is a great option if you don't want to go all the way into down.

While staying at Astapiana Villa Giusso, there's no better place to venture out for an evening meal than Frate Cosimo. Our waiters delighted us with their service and recommendations, and the food was excellent. Would absolutely return and highly recommend.
