We sat at the front of the restaurant and enjoyed moped and car noise as they sped past the front of the 'restaurant' Our food was utterly flavourless. Prawn cocktail at 13E had small hard prawns and a couple of lettuce leaves. The king prawn main in white white sauce was not only flavourless, but was served on soggy bread... More

Had a meal here with my family. The service was good- hence the two stars, but the food wasn't. The pizza was awful, it is a wood fired oven but it tasted basic, the base wasn't nice and the tomato sauce ruined the pizza. Not what we expected! Some of the seafood dishes were ok but I wouldn't waste money... More

Restaurant was cozy & warm on a cold, windy night. Food was excellent and staff very pleasant. This restaurant is adjacent to Hotel Panorama, has been owned by the same person for 28 years. He keeps a careful eye on the busy restaurant!

Bad service when seated. Focus only on hi-jacking customers from street. Let people smoke inside, because it was to cold outside! Food ordinary

We visited La Vela on a number of occasions during our stay in Maiori. This restaurant became the firm family favourite. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The waiters and waitresses were courteous and professional. Our average bill for a family of 4 (6 year old & 13 year old children) including house wine was about 80... More
