Noticed a review hadn't been posted since 2012 and this place deserves a "two thumbs up!" Located literally "on the water" the view of Amalfi is amazing. All seating is located on the terrace so a view from every seat. Food was outstanding as well. Pasta for the First Course and "Catch of the Day" for the Second Course. Three... More

This restaurant is in a fantastic position in an old tower on the edge of the sea with excellent views of both Amalfi and Atrani. Unfortunately, both the service and the food were poor and certainly did not justify the high prices. The menu was uninspired and the food stodgy. A dish of prawns with cous-cous featured warm prawns on... More

Booked and had a specific room confirmed. Was given a different room and told it was an upgrade. Didn't agree-felt I was sharp practice.

Up the main road just a short walk from town center, this old convent has been converted to a comfortable hotel with character and good sea views. It's also a short walk to the charming and much less touristy town of Atrani. Parking is available, which is an advantage in Amalfi.

The pool was amazing and having a glass of wine in the courtyard every evening was perfect end to every day. The staff... More
