La Bettola del Gusto

Italian in Pompeii

Inspired by their mother Rosa's cooking, twins Alberto and Vincenzo Fortunato are the force behind this warm, good-value restaurant. The kitchen revels in all things artisanal, whether it be the provolone del Monaco or vegetables from the family's own patch. Savour the thoughtful dishes like seared prawns wrapped in crunchy Irpinia guanciale (cured pork jowl) and served with a delicate zucchini cream.

Around 40% of the circa 700 wines on offer are from the Campania region, with most of the rest showcasing other Italian regions.
