The location is amazing - right on the water. Parking can be a bit of a challenge. We ordered the antipasti which was amazing! Also, the pasta with clams was very good, especially for gluten free. The fish was just ok. The ambience is a bit lacking and the waiter was not the most friendly.

We were walking along Via Napoli most days and always ended up at this restaurant for lunch. We had our English/Italian book with to help with the menu but our waiter was always helpful in explaining the dishes too. Many good choices of fresh seafood all the dishes were presented very nicely. It's a very popular restaurant on the weekends... More

In the mother land of famous Sofia Lauren you will expect great food but at this restaurant food is outstanding. The service is impeccable packed with plenty of fitness that are rare in this neck of the world. Gennaro the owner is a great host and his wine suggestion nailed the perfect taste. Very pleased to reccomend this restaurant.

We stopped by this restaurant well before Italian lunchtime because we were leaving town and wanted a small bite before going. This was a really lucky choice. We had wonderful bruschetta, a fresh and delicious mixed salad and a half bottle of very nice white wine. The staff were so attentive, in spite of the fact that we ordered practically... More

We were so pleased to find out that the owner Massimo offers a huge selection of gluten free dishes, including bread, pasta and even dessert. Our friend was presented with an amazing platter of varied antipasti all gluten free -- a real treat for her. The quality of all the food was very impressive. The dish Pasta degli Amici was... More

Food in Pozzuoli is good in average, no big bad surprises. The tomato salad in this restaurant is highly recommended!

Having lunch in the sunshine on the terrace (wearing our jackets, it was a bit chilly !) just before Christmas really was a great experience. We had antipasti (selection by the house), very teasteful, fresh seafood just caught that morning in Pozzuoli. Then we had a great dish of pasta (arrabiata and vongole), for sure the pasta was one of... More

You have to try delicious food. You don't have to order any "italian" dish...Ask for suggestion!! They eat little octopus in tomato soup, fried little fishes, clams...so many different things to taste!!

I'd done a lot of research into restaurants before our day trip to Pozzuoli and, on first impressions, it looked like I'd chosen a winner. Lovely outdoor seating area overlooking the sea front and the colourful ceramics on the table were a nice touch. Things rapidly went downhill. Service was brisk, efficient, unsmiling and frankly unwelcoming. Having failed to learn... More
