La Botte was probably the best restaurant we ate at in Minori. The owner of Palazzo Vingius took us here. You could tell that the restaurant was good, because it was completely filled with local people. Despite that it was full, the service was good and the staff really worked hard. Everyone did not take notes, so of course they... More

We really enjoyed our dinner at La Botte Pazza. It is situated on a side street and easy to pass by. It's also difficult to get a reservation as we we tried for two nights before scoring a table. They've got a nice menu, we started with mixed antipasti, and finished with the taglio di manzo which was cooked perfectly... More

We visited La Botte Pazza for dinner last night. The appetizers were different: Fish fritters, crostini with anchovies. Bottomless glasses of wine for free - yes you read it correctly, surprisingly good. One guest and I both ordered the Frittura Mista con insalata- deep fried shrimp, squid, octopus and sardines served piping hot, with a generous side salad of arugula.... More

La botte pazza is the meat half of the restaurant and next door is Pazza Marea the seafood restaurant. We went to the seafood half. We had the Chef's Specials of the day for both appetizers and main course (grilled squid, shrimp, and swordfish) and they were amazing. The restaurant also has the free red and white wine from the...

This place was so good that we came again the following evening! The menu is fish-based and everything was fresh and tasty and well presented. I had the special starter which consisted of about six different dishes all of which were really good. The person taking our order was really professional but friendly at the same time. The really unique... More

This restaurant is amazing the service and food are well worth it. You must book as it is so popular. It's really two restaurants one for meat and one for fish. You can bring your own wine if you want to or you can have the house's. Either way the atmosphere is perfect. I highly recommend this place.

Located in the old centre of Salerno, La botte pazza is certainly very convenient before and after shopping time. Very popular address in Salerno, it is a must to make a reservation beforehand. People stand on the queue to get a table. Good sign? We ordered a spectrum of typical Campinian specialties: tasty, varied but not elaborated cuisine. Portions tend... More

Giving you a jug so you can refill your wine from the tap at will is always a good start to a meal. But the freshly prepared seafood was an absolute joy. It's clearly very popular with the locals and rightly so. And not very expensive either!
