We were staying a 10/15 min walk away from here so came for dinner one evening.

Strange location in that it is set along a small parade just off of a main road.

We were the only people there when we arrive about 8pm which seemed slightly odd. Staff (1 waiter, the female chef and I assume their young daughter) were all really polite. Chef came out and explained the dishes to us.

Both of us had the smoked tuna and swordfish to start - highly recommend!

For mains I had the spaghetti with clams and mussels - amazing!! Being boring, I actually had this dish on 3 separate occasions on our holiday, with this being the cheapest and by far the best. My gf had seafood risotto which she said was always fabulous.

Had a pannacotta for desert which was good but not great.

By the time we left the place was really busy with a group of locals there for dinner which is always a good sign in my opinion!

All in all a great homely little place with top quality food at a very good price (3 courses each with 2 beers for me and 1 drink for my gf was only 66 euros excluding service).

We were a group of 4 couples traveling in South of Italy and we found this restaurant through tripadvisor… it was 1st in the list in Vietri with reviews and filtered as 'Open now' ( not many open on this time of the year!)
8 of us had the restaurant for ourselves and we got a great family hospitality lunch with unique dishes, great wino de casa… and great desserts.
Highly recomeded if you happen to be in Vietri
