Four of us had pizza and one had pasta. The food was lovely. The menu was varied. We were the first people in the restaurant and the person who seated us hardly greeted us! This in itself was a bit off putting. We didn't return for a second evening

We have gone on holiday to Santa Maria di Castellabate for a few years and have eaten many times in Il Cantuccio. It is a great place: the atmosphere is bustling and friendly and it is usually very busy. Both Italian families and tourists like us go there. The food is very good traditional Italian cuisine, the service is excellent... More

This place serves large portions of good food at a reasonable price. From a point of view of quality and taste, it is not the place to go for a special night out, but is good for everyday eating. There is an extensive menu and a good wine list.

We have just arrived back in our lovely villa (debating whether to leave rave review as want to come back and don't want it fully booked😋) from dinner at Il Cantuccio. Rather annoyingly the food was actually quite good, but not better than any others we've eaten in. However the service was utterly atrocious and for this reason alone we... More

We visited as a group following a look at Trip Advisor. Compared to other places nearby we found that the food was pleasant but not great. The service was also just ok.

This place is great and my pizza was really nice. The seafood my mum had was so fresh and tasted amazing. Service was a little slow you had to flag down the waiting staff. They were clearly a popular restaurant but cramming everyone in to the extent they do here put us off coming again.

I have been there twice. Pizza decent; fish decent. Service a bit slow; wine suggested wasn't good. Noisy.

We ate lunch a couple of times and dinner once. The food, particularly the seafood is excellent. Good local wines. Great value. Everyone was very friendly and service was spot on.
