Our tour guide shepherded us here after taking us around the ruins of Pompeii. We were offered a "tourist meal" which consisted of: Starter: Small salad Main: Margherita pizza (reasonable size) or pasta with tomato sauce. Dessert: Some sort of local italian fruity pastry, that was really quite nice. Meal is served with a bottle of wine and a bottle... More

After having spent the morning in the hot sun visiting the amazing Pompeii it was great to sit down in a shaded area to enjoy the experience of a typical Italian lunch. Our travel group was about 50 strong but we were seated quickly and offered a bottle of local wine and water before the meal arrived. There was a... More

We got "coerced" into parking in this odd little lot on the right side outside of the opening of Pompei right outside of the restaurant. But it was the best experience. Raymond helped us park and gave us an older book of Pompei and gave us a ride to the end of the tour and walked it backwards. 20 euros!!!!... More

My family and I stopped here after visiting Pompeii. We were dying to try some authentic Naples pizza and Ristorante Lucullus did not disappoint. We had the 4 cheese pizza and the pizza margherita and they were both delicious. The kids loved the pizza and the free wifi (so they could look for Pokemon in Italy). After we finished our... More

We went to this restaurant as part of our excursion when our cruise ship was at port in Naples. The service was very unprofessional to say the least. There was very little customer service and as part of the tour group we felt like a herd of cattle being led down a chute. The margerita pizza was very disappointing and... More

Our tour guide took us here, we had a set 3 course menu with a drink for €15 per person, all the food we had was very nice, got a small portion of salad for starter then a choice of margarita pizza or spaghetti with tomato sauce. Both meals were of nice size portions, then a desert which was some... More

A good basic Italian lunch spot next to the ruins of Pompeii. Good traditional food, well prepared and served and in a nice shady location.

We were beckoned into this place when looking for parking on our visit to Pompeii. The sign said free parking; it's not free it's 10€ for the day. That was good enough value for me to accept their service as it's literally opposite the entrance to Pompeii. On returning to the car we decided to eat in the restaurant. The... More

Had lunch here with our tour group before walking around Pompeii. Organised basic lunch. Very busy, all rather rushed. Just wanted us all in and out. The entrance to the restaurant is shaded under a tunnel of trees and greenery. Plenty of space to dine in the shade outside or a very large inside area. I think it really caters... More
