Great food, great staff, very friendly

Set in one of the piazzas of Amalfi, L'Abside is a small but very friendly restaurant with great staff. Very enjoyable.

Dinner last night with a group of friends walking here - very enjoyable, we all enjoyed the food and good, friendly, smiley service. And the house wines were very drinkable. We'll probably return.

We were never asked if meal was ok or whether we would like any drink top ups,when we asked for a glass or carafe of tap water they said no and our pizza was almost impossible to eat because it was so chewy.

Pros: - Fresh pasta - Overall quality food - Good value Cons: - None The place is conveniently located near the centre of Amalfi. The place was near empty at 6:00 pm but by 7:00 pm, it was almost full. We were able to get a reservation for 8:00 pm without too much difficulty. The waiting staff was very professional... More

The food was decent, but the service was spot on and during a busy lunch hour even. Not a bad place to stop for food.

Our lovely hotel Residenza Luce, suggested this restaurant......what a delight! Very good food and very professional but friendly staff. We ate there several nights and each time we were made to feel like long time patrons, the staff remembering what we had eaten previously and suggesting other similar items or mentioning something 'special' that the kitchen had prepared. It was... More

Our hotel suggested this restaurant, and we were only disappointed that we visited on the last night of our holiday ! It is located in a quiet street off the main Piazetta. Lovely pasta and the seafood was really good too. The Eggplant Parmigiana was the best we tasted in our entire trip. Good, friendly service and excellent Desserts. The... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and I am so glad we took this suggestion. The food was really good and our hostess was really nice. She went out of her way to get us what we liked on the menu. The pizza and pasta was amongst the best I have had in Italy.

Ingredients were so fresh but it stops there.. We ordered two seafood dishes and they were cooked really well, but the sauces/pasta they came with could have been better. The local pasta (home made like fettuccine) was too thick and undercooked. I like my pasta al dente, but you could taste the uncooked dough. Same with the risotto, slightly underdone.... More
