Went for dinner at this resto after having read the reviews. I wish I had a better experience. Service was quite slow although the staff were friendy. The resto was quite busy and the drinks (which was just some fanta) took a while to come. We were given prosecco and some amuse bouche to try which was very nice of... More

After our visit to Pompei ruins we moved to this restaurant; as we had had a recomendation. Getting there was easy, and parking at the train station was convenient. Do not get nervous as the exterior has not any glamour, but once you enter everything is different. Atmosfere, service, food were ahead from expectation. Very good fresh fish, at a... More

La Bettola offers a lovely quiet dining experience in the slow food tradition so well established throughout Italy. We started with an interesting zuppa with pumpkin, beans, and guancale that was delicious on a cool evening. Following that, we enjoyed a meal of mixed seafood pasta that was delightful in every way. A complementary small glass of prosecco and an... More

This restaurant, too, is across the street from the train station in Pompeii. We were fortunate to find a table in this lovely place, which quickly filled with locals as well as fellow travelers. We did not have a bad meal in Pompeii.

The food was average and the service was good, but they charged not only 2€ per person service fee, but also 15% service charge. I felt they were taking advantage of the tourist.

We had our first dinner in Italy at La Bettola del Gusto and enjoyed the food and experience immensely. Our waiter spoke enough English to help us order and his attentive service made us feel special. His recommendations for the meal were outstanding and, in addition, he listened to what we were looking for in a wine and served an... More

This a great place to eat in Pompei. The presentation of the food was beautiful and tat set superb. The atmosphere was very nice and service was great. Not expensive for a Michelin stared restaurant. Ask for a local wine - piedirosso grape.
