Travelling down from Vesuvius there are 3 restaurants on a corner and this is by far the best. Full of Italians having their Sunday lunch. Amazing fresh seafood and luckily 1 waitor who kindly translated the menu for us. I had the paella pizza which had lovely octopus and squid.

Food and service was OK, and had it not been cloudy I'm sure the views down to Naples Bay would have been great. This is a tourist bus stop-off for lunch for tours to Vesuvius so I'm guessing you need to time your visit to avoid the arrival of a couple of coach loads. Large (free) car park, but for... More

After a two hour walk up and down mount Vesuvius it was great to have a glass of wine and local pizza. Pizza was ok. Wine was fine Toilets were a mess Nice to see that somebody kept an eye on our car. But he wanted a tip

Stopped there for lunch on my way down from Vesuvio. I chose a caprese salad + ravioli and I can recommend both. Nice view from the terrace. Friendly staff but service was a bit slow.

Like many other reviewers have said, this was a very welcome spot after a long trip up the hill. Relatively inexpensive, pizza was delicious (sure, it s probably average compared to the better pizza places in Naples) the view was amazing, plenty of parking and seating, and the staff wasn't too slow. Expect them not to rush you out.

We doubled back after passing Kona's on the way down from Versuvias as it was one of the busier restaurants on the roads leading down, offering ample parking (a rare find coming from the Amalfi Coast) and plenty of panoramic views. The restaurant appeared promising as it hosted many people from differing nationalities, including Italians, and had a fantastic authentic... More

We for there after an I pressive and exhaustive climb to the Vesuvio volcano. We sat on the terrace overlooking the Naples bay,which by itself is already rewarding. The assortment of cold-cuts an cheese was exquisite. The ricotte filled ravioli was covered by freshly cherry tomato sauce. Scrumptious! The limoncello was a good conclusion toa tasty meal. Altogether a very... More

Our driver, Claudio, was bringing us from Amalfi for a visit to Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. After a warm visit to Pompeii, we were quite hungry. Claudio stated that he knew of a place. We drove up Mt. Vesuvius, pulled in to this wonderful place, and were promptly seated and attended to. The four of us had wonderful meals started... More

Stopped on the way down for a quick drink and a pizza. The service was really good, we shared a pizza, it was excellent and not expensive at all. Well worth a quick stop.

This restaurant is very reasonably priced. The pizza was very good and they served it with a little olive oil drizzled on the top. The local wine was interesting but decent in addition to being very inexpensive. This was one of the best Caprese salads that I had in Italy due to the fresh grown taste of the tomatoes.
