A perfect pizza and pasta lunch while visiting the gardens of Ravello.

Although I had been to Ravello once before, I enjoyed it so much more this time around. I had a purpose, you see - the gardens to visit.

We started off at the charming Villa Rufolo with its beautiful vistas and perfect plantings, then, on the way up the many stairs to the more well known Villa Cimbrone, we found the Ristorante-Pizzeria Vittoria. It is a charming place to have a pizza and pasta lunch and the complementary glasses of Prosecco went down a treat! Who could ask for anything more?

The excellent service and beautifully prepared and presented meals, along with the two fantastic gardens, made it a day to remember. Prices were inexpensive and I recommend this restaurant.

Pleasant and reasonably-priced restaurant with a varied menu and good food. We liked the "extras" that were provided!

Directions: Between the Duomo and the church of San Francesco

We ate at Vittoria twice during our week-long stay in Ravello. This restaurant was a nice family compromise, since it was economical and had several menu choices that interested our 11-year old daughter. We had been in Italy for three weeks by this point, and Charley and Kelly were both weary of pasta and pizza.

The restaurant is small but very attractive, with a couple of small dining rooms. We started with a complimentary aperitif and a complimentary starter of fried courgette flowers, which were very, very good. Charley and I shared parma ham and buffala mozzarella. Charley and Kelly both ended up having pizza after all, and I had large gnocchi, almost like ravioli. Charley and I shared a whole liter of wine. We also had dessert. Our bill was Ä47. We thought the service was very good, and we had a fun interaction with the two people waiting on us as well as some Canadians at the next table.

A few nights later we had dinner here again, this time before a concert at the Villa Rufulo. There was a large group (a tour group I later found, when I sat next to two of the people at the concert) that took up the entire front dining room. I'm pretty sure this impacted the service, since the service wasnít as good as the other night. The meal was equally good.

Our complimentary appetizer at our second dinner was some type of little salty fish in oil instead of the fried courgette flower, which we would have preferred. I saw other diners with the courgette flowers, so Iím not sure why we ended up with the little fish. Charley and I shared parma ham and buffalo mozzarella again, then he had lamb chops and potatoes and I had grilled prawns. Kelly had a pizza. Charley and I passed on dessert, but Kelly had fresh pineapple. It seemed to take forever to get our check. The big party must have been settling up at the same time. The bill for our second visit (including wine) was Ä66.

Despite the service issues on the second visit, we do recommend Vittoria. Just be sure to ask for the courgette flowers!
