It is almost under the Steps to the Cathedral

We had walked through the tunnels in Amalfi, following signs for the Cathedral... a bit tired and hungry we all but fell over this gem... Obviously a family run resaurant, clean, tidy and welcoming.

The food was delicious, the service was excellent, the location ideal and quiet. The pasta fagioli the best I've ever had.

We had a great meal here and at a very good price too. After being ripped off earlier today, it was nice getting a complementary appetizer which was delicious ! I had the scampi pasta and it was real good and not a small dish like a lot of places in Italy serves. My husband had the ravioli and it... More

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

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
