The food here is something you would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. The owner/chef is incredibly kind and the surroundings are incredible. It's a terrific experience.

A little isolated, but it's worth the trip. Exquisite local food (from Irpinia) with a touch of innovation. I really appreciated the whole menu, in particular a starter with bread, broccoli, a kind of local pecorino cheese and a dry pepper, a celery soup with fried codfish, a pasta with potatoes, chard and ginger. Great wines from the area.
Staff polite and always available. They have tables outside too, it will be for the next time.

What a lovely meal. We were taken to the ancient town of Gesualdo by friends and were taken to this amazing restaurant which really takes some finding as it is a little out of town. What followed was a multi course degustation menu made with great care from truly local ingredients. One of the best meals I have had in Italy washed down with excellent local wine produced by the owner. Highlight was the delicate carpaccio served on a smooth potato truffle puree garnished with a creamy burrata like cheese and shavings of local truffle and green olive oil. I took a picture so enjoy!! The trio of starters with a beautiful roasted pepper coulis was also exceptional.

I've been many times to Gesualdo (I'm italian living in London and I like to travel around my country discovering new and hidden restaurants), and I can say I'll be back anytime I can.
La Pergola is a great place for all the "real food and real tastes" lovers. Proper Italian cuisine made with experience, great products knowledge, and love.
And the added value is given by the owners... fantastic people! We became friends since the first time we met.
If you go there You'll feel like home!
