Boyfriend and I had dinner in this little restaurant tucked into an alley close to the cathedral in Amalfi. We were late eating and this proved to be something of a problem. It was a quiet evening and we sat down to eat at 9 pm. I had pizza and boyfriend had mixed fish. Pizza was very good but the... More

We are visiting this quaint restaurant for the third time tonight. It is a family business with one brother running the kitchen and the other brother the tables. Our host is energetic and enthusiastic about his 'restaurant' which makes you feel welcome. The food is delicious and homemade. It is prepared with fresh produce and simple beautiful flavours.

We wandered up a tiny ally to be greeted by the most energetic italian who told us if the pizza and pasta wasn't the best we had on Amalfi then it would be free. We left a big tip, the food was great, wine suggested was excellent but what stuck with us the most and makes us rave about this... More

We ate at this restaurant on the recommendation of our taxi cab driver. It was worth it! We were welcomed, assisted in choosing our dinner and the food was excellent. Great atmosphere - smaller/quaint. Highly recommend - Enjoy!

As many other satisfied customers have said on Tripadvisor, this place serves great Pizza ! We had a lovely lunch here away from the hustle and bustle of the other tourists (thanks to all on Tripadvisor who have shared this hidden gem so that we could find it too). The welcome is good (no hassle, but very helpful), service is... More

We were tired and did not feel like cleaning up for a Michelin starred evening. We wandered Amalfi in search of a good pizza. We try to follow our nose but we were a little early. (7pm) We avoid main squares and anything with a tourist menu. We wandered past this convivial place and they had just put a reserved... More

We stopped at this restaurant because we read reviews about it. We were not disapointed! We ordered mozarella and tomatoes as a starter and it was really good. We had sausage and vegetarian pizza for lunch. The size of the pizza was enourmous for the prize we paid, had lots of stuff in it and tasted awesome. The staff was... More

Best pizza pasta in amalfi, not number two, three, four or five, number one!! This little treasure is hidden away in a corner of a small square of the main town piazza, if you’re not careful you will miss it! We were recommended this by the staff at our hotel, who were all locals and they were not wrong. It... More

Amalfi can be a tourist trap and eating there can be a recipe for production line fodder delivered by disgruntled waiters tired of being subservient to tourists wealthier than themselves whose treat them that way. Refreshing it was to discover this small family run restaurant that delivered the best pizza we have had in Italy just off the main square.... More
