We ate lunch here twice. The first time we were introduced by the Residenza Luce manager but the meal was so delicious and the ambience delightful that we returned for lunch on our second day too.

We went there for dinner on July 13th and the food was good but nothing special. They brought plenty of drinks quickly and treated us nice.

We had lunch at this very friendly restaurant. The food was excellent and tasty. We had a couple of plates to share and some local wine. There was a steady stream of happy customers and we thoroughly enjoyed our find.

Visited the beach and decided to eat late lunch early dinner. Found this restaurant in the small piazza through the arch, great food, not cheap (for the type of meal), friendly service. Like all restaurants in the Costeria it is over priced but decent.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we weren't disappointed. The outside seating looks over the piazza dei dogi and has a great atmosphere. The food was beautifully presented, tasted first class, but it was a small serve, and a bit on the expensive side. The lady owner was friendly and helpful.

We have just returned from Amalfi, we visited this family run restaurant several times for lunch or an evening meal. The service was friendly and efficient. The food served, was fresh and of good quality. We would recommend this restaurant to all. Having been in previous years, it constantly strives to improve. We will return!

My wife and I went one evening recently for dinner and enjoyed ourselves very much. We sat outside while at another cafe nearby people sat watching the Italy world cup match on an outdoor TV. Needless to say the football was getting most of the attention in the Piazza(dei Dogi). However, at L'Abside we were given ample personal attention by... More

Jovana's restaurant is wonderful. She and the entire staff were beyond friendly. We had dinner in Amalfi four nights. We came here TWICE. Anchovy!!!! I don't even like anchovies, but I crushed them. Anchovy pasta.....AWESOME. Everything was really good, but obviously I was shocked by the anchovy. In the states, I won't even look at an anchovy. I would highly... More

We ate at this restaurant twice as the food and service was very good. The staff were friendly and the prices was reasonable. The restaurant offers several types of Bruschetta and we loved the one with chilli. It wasn't overly hot but it had a nice zip to it and was served on thinly sliced bread. We had the Ravello... More
