We were extremely disappointed by De Vita. The service was very poor and the staff was rude and all of them seemed not to enjoy working there. When we came in the first waitress told us that we had to go to the back of the restaurant to discuss our reservation. There we were told that we had to run after 'the tall guy' as he had reshuffled the bookings for that night. We ordered bruschetta as a starter, but it was very basic, and included one slice with zuchini that was very bitter and aubergine which was tasteless. The wine we ordered (a glass of Chianti) was sour, and it seemed like the bottle had been open for a while. Our main dishes were a special (a 'tre gusti' pizza, which was not that special at all and not worth the price), and a siciliano pizza (which was okay). We were looking for a nice night out, and we had ordered very good pizza's with the restaurant before. Therefore the night has been extra disappointing with poor food, bad service and a very noisy atmosphere.

They had fresh burratta which is rare to find and was excellent. The gnocchi was home made and like little soft pillows, beautiful. The pizza were amazing and would definitely return.

About De Vita - Tastes of Napoli

Pizza with a twist Italians always insist the best food comes from wherever they grew up – but they also generally agree that the cuisine of Naples is rather spectacular. The birthplace of pizza is serious about food, and chef Vincenzo De Vita shares this passion. He’s a native Neapolitan who has brought experience and knowledge from his home region (with a twist of his own style) to De Vita – Tastes of Napoli in Sydney’s Manly. De Vita’s menu is vast, so you might want to pick a tasty little starter (such as the adorable little fried balls of dough called ‘scugnizzi’) to snack on while you peruse the menu. While there are some excellent main courses to choose from (like homemade ravioli and linguine with fresh seafood), the food of Naples is really all about pizza. To acknowledge this, the menu at De Vita has no less than three pizza menus. The first contains some of the classics, such as the capricciosa, next to some less traditional options like the lasagna pizza. The second menu offers some wonderfully indulgent fried pizza; and the third is devoted to special pizzas such as the ‘Toto’, which comes with a ricotta-stuffed edge. If you want to really delight your fellow diners, order the star-shaped Stella pizza, which comes with a different flavor in each point. Best dish: the stella pizza
