Amazing vegan menu

Loved that they had a separate vegan/vegetarian menu with at least 2-4 vegan options for each course (antipasti, primi, secondi, side dishes and dolci). The service was excellent and the view breathtaking. A beautiful date night restaurant, especially if your significant other is omnivore and your looking for places that satisfy both your tastebuds. Prices are moderate for the Amalfi coast, especially given that they use all ingredients from their organic garden next to the restaurant. On busy nights (Fri-Sun) I’d recommend booking a table to guarantee you get one with a great view overlooking the valley and bay.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Breathtaking view, Organic ingredients from own garden

This place was delicious. The tofu with pineapple sauce was great. Same with the cabbage dish and deep fried pizza. Went there twice. Was a little expensive but was worth it after only eating tomato pasta for weeks

Beautiful spot, vegan menu

When you ask for the vega(n) menu, you will get a completely different menu with lots of options for vega(n) dishes.
It is a very luxurious place, with lots of obers and quick service. That means also: high prices for everything.
Our starter with zuchini and lemon was outstanding! The secundo however dissapointed us a bit: both the vegetable pie and the pepper rols didnot have much taste. The desert of vega lemon delight was a real delight! The vegan chocolate half round and mangomousse (forgot the name) was also very nice.
Oh, some got free lemoncello, we didnot however.

Pros: Lots of vega and vegan options, Stunning view, Nice staff

Cons: Expensive, Not everything was that well flavoured, They do not offer the vegan menu themselves

Amazing view & experience

We reserved a table the night before, and got the best table on the terrace, right on the edge and got to experience the stunning view with no people blocking it. So highly recommend reserving in advance, one day seemed to suffice (in July 2022). There is a separate veg menu, very friendly staff, and the food was delicious. I’ve seen people complain that it’s overpriced, but with the whole experience I’d definitely say it’s worth it. The prices are basic European dinner prices in time of inflation (for example: cocktail 12€, starter 15€, pasta 18€, dessert 12€), I didn’t think they were particularly high (obviously coming from a privileged position and used to higher prices as I’m from Finland). Anyway, highly recommend if you’re in Amalfi, Ravello or nearby towns!

Pros: Separate vegetarian/vegan menu, Friendly staff, The view!!!

Cons: The bus ride to Ravello is a little scary

Price not worth it.

I would recommend to increase the portions of vegan dishes as they are much smaller than those made from meat or fish.

Beautiful atmosphere and food with organic veg garden next door

When exploring Ravello we stumbled across an amazing organic vegetable patch in the mountains, it turned out this was owned by the restaurant @villamariaravello next door!

They had a number of options on the menu, we went for the seitan burger and five tomato spaghetti 🍝

🍝 You can taste the freshness of the tomatoes, each different type with a separate flavour. The thick spaghetti was cooked perfectly with just the right amount of sauce.

🍔 It tasted firm and succulent with the flavours around the ate and additional salad complimenting it well.

The view is also stunning, if you end up booking a table you could request a sea view but to be honest the whole of the garden was magical.

Pros: Lots of options, Atmosphere , Staff were friendly

It's amazing how they actually grow their own organic produce in the garden next door for their restaurant in a place so beautiful like Ravello. As a vegan, it's literally like an experience in paradise for me as authentic vegan diversity is hard to come by in the area. Although a bit pricy, it's still more than worth it to make my vacanza delightful😉Thank you Villa Maria 🙏

Decent but pricey

The food and view here are great. Very fresh foods. We got the guacamole salad, tofu plate, and veggie burger plate and everything was very delicious. The staff is vegan knowledgeable and friendly. However, for the price per plate and the quantity, it seems pricey. You are definitely paying for the view which is awesome but I wish I would have gotten a little more food for the amount I paid.

Pros: Vegan options (separate menu), Good quality

Cons: Small portions , Pricey

Fine italian dining

If you're interested in splurging on a delicious Italian meal while you're in Italy, this is the place! Seating overlooks the gorgeous valley, hillsides, and the sea. Honestly half of what you pay for is the view and the incredible service which is unusual in an Italian restaurant. There's an entirely separate vegetarian menu with vegan items clearly marked. There were multiple choices for antipasti, primi, secondi & dessert. Everything was delicious. But quite expensive. If a special dining experience is part of what you're looking for, you will not be disappointed.

As with all good things, it's a bit off the beaten path. If you have difficulty walking that might be an issue.

Pros: Phenomenal View, Fabulous service, Vegetarian menu with vegan items labeled

Cons: Expensive
