Dined here last summer and had to come back for the Risotto Gamberetti. The food was so good i couldn't resist the Swordfish steak for mains. All washed down with chilled Furore. The staff all remembered us from last year which made very special. A very welcoming place that is a must when in Amalfi. This place is consistently good.... More

Just of the Main Street and through a narrow alley behind Residenza Luce, you'll come along this gem. Set in it's on small plaza it is both a place to enjoy amazing food and service but to also witness Italian life at it's best!

Had a good meal and good service. Won't say it is a "must do" place in town but you will likely have a very good experience here. Since everything is so expensive in this part of town, at least you are getting something tasty for your money

In our last days in Amalfi coast, we wanted to try a high rated and a little bit more expensive with somewhat gourmet food restaurant. We started with some grilled antipasti veg and it was very nice, next we ordered our main courses, I had the risotto with shrimps but it was very hard to eat because the shrimps shells... More

Walked past it by chance on a rare afternoon it was open. Food was amazing (the chef came to tell us about each dish and she was lovely, skilled and very passionate). It's the cheapest but worth every penny. I'd tell you what I recommend but I'm sure everything is good on their menu!

We had a three course meal opting for a 20 euro sea bass main course. It came poorly filleted and not supported by much in the way of side dishes etc. The meal was unmemorable. On the bill we paid for 25 euro of sea bass. We didn't visit again

Marco, Giovanna and Marco's Wife were amazing hosts. The food was exceptional, I would definitely recommend the pasta with mussels and clams, the lasagne and the swordfish. Our boy Geep's had the pistachio/chocolate mousse for desert, it was sinful. The best part about this restaurant is that we were made to feel like family. Marco sat with us for at... More

My wife and I really enjoyed this L'abside. Service was great, we were recommended a couple of dishes and they did not disappoint. Nice house wine to enjoy with the meal. Also reasonably priced for Amalfi. Will definitely return.

We ate dinner here twice during our stay. Food and service were really good. The spaghetti with anchovies, dried tomatoes and walnuts and the seafood risotto were both excellent.
