    This is hands down the best meal we've had, including Naples and Rome's Michelin starred restaurants. Some dishes have left us with unforgettable memories such as the guinea fowl, the pumpkin, the orzo's mushrooms, or the octopus. The atmosphere is great as is the service. Everything was tasteful, down to the careful selection of cheeses with subtle differences. One of the top dining experiences in Italy.

    A meal with mostly locally sourced ingredients, in a surprising but excellent combination with both each other as with the suggested wine-pairings. Supernice staff was the cherry on the cake ????????????????

    Everything was great but my food was not hot but cool. I had beef cheeks.

    Restaurant surévalué - Cuisine prétentieuse - Patron imbuvable.

    5.5/10

    The restaurant was very disappointing, and we felt misled by the Michelin recommendation. Although the ambience was beautiful, everything we ate (except the bread and olive oil) was tasteless, and the service was really poor. We have been eating great food in Salerno, including at the other Michelin-recommended restaurants, so the pretentious yet unappetizing dishes baffled us, each course more disappointing than the previous one. The amuse bouche (3 different items) were utterly tasteless, and the ‘crunchy cod’ appetizer was inferior to frozen supermarket fish-fingers. After the thoroughly unpalatable main course (amberjack), my wife threatened to kill me if I order a dessert! The waiters didn’t take notice of the fact that we didn’t finish our dishes, and we had to pour our own wine throughout the dinner.

    Service was horrible. Nobody asked during the courses if everything was okay, they were picking up plates while the other was still eating and did not pay any attention to us at all. Food was also underperforming based on the price you pay. Main course was a block of very dry pork. Ambience however was good. The setting with the garden looks very nice.

    Very nice ambiance and atmosphere and the food was good. Not the depth/fullness of flavours typically associated with fine dining but nice. Service could be improved. Didn’t get any explanation on the menu options, or wine choices, or when main dish served, or the specialist cheeses presented and wasn’t offered a coffee or liquor. Yes I could have asked and yes there may have been a struggle with speaking English however these things make you feel more welcome and demonstrate the passion for cooking which must be the chefs and owners priority. So overall it was very good and value for money. Michelin levels? Got a bit to go yet but food getting there.

    On vacation and liked your recommendation. We were greeted warmly and the service started out well. That changed somewhat when we ordered the menu. We had to ask for a wine pairing as there was no by the glass list and as we did not know what we were eating it was difficult to order a bottle of wine. The food overall was excellent but as the place got busier and other tables were ordering Alla Carte they seemed to get more attention. Go for the food but ask for wine pairings up front if you opt for the set menus.

    A delightful respite from the hustle and bustle of the Salerno waterfront and shopping streets. The menu seems a bit limited but the quality of ingredients, preparation, and presentation are exceptional. The staff were all very kind, polite, and very helpful. Definitely worth a visit. Thank you.

    We arrived at 7pm per reservation, and they were expecting us. We chose the seven-course fixed menu. The ambience was very nice even sitting adjacent to the busy bar. The food was excellent and courses came in a tempo fitting a high end Michelin starred restaurant, finishing at about 9:10pm. The service was excellent. Overall we enjoyed it very much!

    The environment, the staff and the food options...an experience you ought to try. I went to Hydra twice, both times within the cohort. The peaceful and relaxing water background, almost no voice noising and shuffled lighting enhance the pleasure of this experience.
