Absolutely wonderful lumch

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. The swordfish and grilled vegetables were superb and the pasta swordfish / shrimp were also very good. Service was great and so were the desserts. A little off the beaten path - which typically means a great meal!

Ok, so we were in Amalfi for lunch looking for a place that had reasonable prices. Really? The prices on the menu outside seemed reasonable so we went in. My lasagna was good, but, for the price, the portion was very small. My wife ordered the scampi with linguini. Her meal was not good. The pasta was flavorless. Our 20... More

In an alleyway, just left of the cathedral, we found il Chiostro. We wanted to rest our feet with a glass of wine and a quick lunch. We ate outside, which is not particularly scenic. We each had a Caprese salad and as you can see by the picture, the biggest one we had seen in Italy! The cheese was... More

Ate at this restaurant with my wife during our visit to Amalfi. The food was outstanding and the service exceptional. The portions are large and flavours excellent.

While walking, we passed Il Chiostro and were impressed by their menu. After exploring Amalfi, we found our way back for a delicious lunch of fried sardines (the best fish I had in Italy) and a generous plate of mussels accompanied by a basket of bread. We dined at a table in the alleyway, away from the throngs of people... More

One of the friendliest service we've had. The food is not too bad either. Try the fish cooked in "Crazy Water". It was pretty good!

We ate at Il Chiostro early one eve during our stay on the Amalfi coast. We chose this restaurant because it is just off the square away from the hustle and bustle, the perfect Italian restaurant we sat outside, lovely setting with background music. We were greeted by Genaro, who was so friendly, professional and most of all helpful when... More

Really liked this place. It's away from the crowds and not the usual rip off prices found in Almalfi. Well worth a visit

Popped in for lunch during my family's stopover in Amalfi. Chose the place on the basis of the menu outside. Was not disappointed. All the food was between good to excellent. Two dishes were absolutely magnificent: 1) the "amalfi anchovies" starter (fried double-anchovies with cheese and basil); and 2) the pasta with swordfish and prawns. All of us loved both... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Amalfi Boat Tour captain from Positano. He said for authentic Italian food from the region he could recommend no better restaurant in the town. He wasn't wrong, the food was authentic, simple and flavorful. The service, quality, staff and unbeatable prices make this place a standout. As mentioned in previous posts it's... More
