Amazing menu, food, customer service. We have spent two weeks in Italy and this place was the only restaurant that really showed us the traditional Italian food.

We have travelled the Amalfi coast eating at fancy places but we cannot stop talking about this place. The hospitality of the owners, the high quality of food... More

If you needed one reason to come to this part of Italy, you found it !! This restaurant is probably the highlight of our trip in the south of Naples. Family owned business, the welcome is warm by the mamma and her daughter who both speak good English. The menu is daily prepared with the ingredients of the day: everything... More

My husband and 2 boys visited Lu Vottaro and what a wonderful meal we had. The owner and her daughter were so welcoming and we could believe how delicious the food was - there is no menu but they explain each course to you and you are free to choose which ones you like . Each course was amazing and... More

I wanted to eat more simply to try everything that the marvelous host/chef were capable of producing. The four courses we had were each wonderful--simple, delicious, authentic Cilento dishes.

My wife and I were booked into this lovely little restaurant by the manager at our nearby accommodation. Although it was a 'normally closed' night Christina the chef/owner still opened for us and cooked to order her selection of the most beautiful, freshly made and wonderfully presented food we have enjoyed in a long time. It is a small intimate... More

When you travel abroad you always want to find an authentic Italian restaurant and not the one for tourists, so here comes Lu Vottaro. It is interesting that Italians leaving in the towns close to Trentinara don’t know themselves about this great place.
