This little gem is a great family restaurant. We were warmly welcomed as soon as we crossed the door. The menu is typically Italian and in Italian as well! They have the usual Italian fare plus local specialties like snails and horse meat. The food was great, with large portions and the chef (owners wife!) came out to make sure we were enjoying our meal. It was good home cooked country meal. I could not have asked for more. The owner even treated us to a glass of local grappa at the end of the meal. Even got a kiss by the chef! Like mom use to do!! Highlight of our Benevento trip.

This is my 35th trip to Italy !!!
I have eaten in hundreds of restaurants & this was an experience that I will never forget !!
Alfonso, his wife & daughter Maria Pompea are an amazing team. We were a party of 3, one was my cousin mico who has been in the restaurant industry for 45 years.
All 3 of us were FLOORED with the quality & uniqueness of flavor we experienced !!!!!
Benevento is not a big tourist town, but I guarantee if you come to this restaurante, you will be totally satisfied, if not, I WILL PAY FOR YOUR DINNER !!!

This osteria is perfect if you are looking for a cosy place to eat and drink well. It's family run, with great warmth and generosity. The food is wonderful and includes a number of local dishes that vary according to what's in season.

If it's on the menu i'd defintiely recommend the cardone beneventano (a hearty zuppa with the vegetable cardone from the artichoke family, cooked in chicken stock, eggs, Parmesan and with veal balls), penne with red onions and smoked provolone, and the seasonal vegetables. Digestivo was a locally made amaro, which was also lovely.

Not open Tuesdays.

We drove 3 hours from the Amalfi Coast to watch a Seria A soccer game. Arriving Sunday at lunch time, a lot of Benevento was closed but Locanda Scialapopolo, although full, told us to come back and that they would serve us. The hospitality of this family was so warming and their food, full of heart, soul and goodness. We ate very well here and even stopped by on our way home to get some take away. They serve a lot of local dishes, many of which I couldn't translate but which were delicious all the same. Definitely order pastas and the cake. Grazie mille per la cucina povera! We hope to come back on year.
