This is the sort of restaurant where the high hopes you had upon entering are completely unrealized upon departing. The setting is lovely, overlooking the Marina di Corricella. Things don't exactly get better from there. The service is INDIFFERENT and MECHANICAL. It seems the fact that you're seated in their restaurant is more than sufficient for the staff and ownership. The fresh fish offerings were basic at best and instead of the typical fish that two can enjoy, they had on offer a few small, uninteresting fish you can get anywhere in Italy. There was nothing to note about how the fish were prepared. The two appetizers we had were actually very good. The octopus was terrific and the lightly fried anchovies were delicious. What was awful here was the vino della casa, the house wine. I live in Italy and have been drinking house wines for 15 years, usually some pretty good stuff. This white wine had a strange yellow color and we were convinced it was diluted with water or something else. The flavor was strange too. Spend a few extra euros and avoid this VERY BAD house wine. All-in-all a mediocre experience. You can do better in Corricella.

Eating where Massimo Troisi (cult Neapolitan actor) filmed his last movie can be an attraction to some people, but whilst the staff is friendly enough the food wasn't to the same level. Nothing bad, just average, which being in Campania is a bit of a let down in itself.
Anyhow the specials were ok, the starters and salads a bit bland, so all in all ok for a quick bit, not really for a dinner.

This restaurant has excellent views of Procida. The staff was very friendly and the food was so tasty. We had fresh anchovies, octopus salad , sea food linguine and fish of the day. Every sine dish was fresh and tasty and the service was really good.

This restaurant was used for one of the last takes of "Il Postino" but it is not famous just because of this. The fresh fish gain additional interest when takens just in front of the harbour.

This please is situated right in the spot that many of the Il Postino early scenes are filmed in which has influenced the naming and decor of the restaurant and its terrace. This leads to it being extremely popular in the busy summer months, when we went and service was consequently really slow. Food was good tho but nothing spectacular
