Huge pizzas, freshly made to perfection. Good seafood with everything you could want. Set us up nicely for going to the theatre

I'm not sure if I just ordered the wrong thing but both me and one of my friends ended up with one of the blandest meals I've ever had. I wouldn't go back. I don't eat sea food and had sausage pasta while she had...More

This restaurant is amazing with wonderful service and the best food. We had the Antipasto followed by Calzone and a Strascinati Salsicci with a recommend bottle of Montepulciano a perfect meal. We left promising to return

We visit posillipo regularly, almost once every couple of months. There are three, Canterbury, Faversham and Broadstairs. Yet to visit Broadstairs but have been told it is just as great as the others. Great choices on menu for veggies, pescatarians and carnivores (we're veggies)

We had two pasta dishes. The pastas and sauces were freshly cooked just like good Italian restaurants in Italy. The service was good. You can sit indoors and out near the walls of the cathedral and crooked house. Romantic atmosphere like near the high street...More

Extremely unfriendly service and mediocre food. We arrived in 4 and a rude romanian staff member was kind of disturbed by us asking for a table outside. Very unfriendly staff, looked not clean, extremely greasy hair. We ordered wine, soft drinks, starters, mains, dessert and...More

Childhood friends Enzo Espedito welcome you to a little taste of Napoli with Osteria Posillipo Pizzaria ��� quite likely one of Canterbury���s friendliest restaurants. Decorated in relaxing woods, this light, airy space has the added bonus of being located near the Marlowe Theatre. An in-house wood-fired stone oven is visible from the open-plan kitchen on the ground floor, allowing hungry diners watch their pizzas bubble away the traditional way. Not in the mood for pizza? Traditional Italian favourites are the name of the game here, including fresh, homemade pasta like spaghetti a vongole.
