Lack of service staff waiting on the tables. Food was okay, but prices/menu unclear and we ended up getting charged more than expected for the wine. Didn't feel relaxed or welcomed and therefore why I grade it poor. Might be that we visited on a bad day, but we didn't bother trying this restaurant again.

We were on a family holiday and dropped in for dinner. Having booked a table we were seated with a magnificent view. The pizzas were great - lots of cheese, thin crust, great spicy sausage and very good value (beware - they are large) Stick to the local wines rather than venture down the list! The only downer is the... More

Staying in Massa Lubrense, we drove down the mountain to the small beach at Marina del Cantone. Some great restaurants in such a small place. Am told many come from Capril by boat to eat here in the summer. However, in late November we were the only tourists and it was lovely. We had lunch with an open window right... More

Although this restaurant has nice views over to the sea, the service wasn't very good. The waiter was very abrupt and some of our party didn't want to eat but wanted a drink. After one of our party hadn't received her drink after at least 20 minutes we asked where it was to be told they didn't have any left.... More

Good Food - although not outstanding - at typically for the area prices. Nice inside and outside - weather permitting. Slightly hidden place.

Monday night may not be a good night to pick this restaurant as very few people around, it's end of season, but this place was a big let down. Huge restaurant, probably nice views in daylight. Don't go here if you want to feel welcome as waiter did not make us feel comfortable, felt like we were surplus to requirements.... More

Not only can you see the sea & have a great sunset but you can see over to the island of Capri all while have a nice dinner. However be aware that the staff seemed rather aloof & not real responsive.

It's a bit pricy if you don't check what you order carefully, but the portions are big and the meal is delicious. Everything is fresh and they cook it fast. It's a problem to get the bill when you are done. The biggest problem is to understand what they write in this check by hand. You can go there if... More

So the restaurant is located with a spectacular view. Unfortunately the service was more than mediocre. Staff was not motivated, even after we asked if they were already closing, as they took away all our plates and didn't ask us if we wanted dessert the answer was "well .. it is off season so people want to finish work early"...

My pizza was ok, but my husband could not eat his as the meat tasted off. The staff were positively unhelpful and we were surrounded by smoke which spoilt what could be a fantastic restaurant as the garden setting and view is wonderful. I would not recommend this restaurant unless you are prepared to accept the rudeness of the staff.
