Top service, very good food!

After 4 days spent in Amalfi, we had best pasta dinner in L'Abside! Strongly recommended: ravioli, fresh pasta with seafood and lasagna! Never miss their dolci: panacota and cheese cake! Extensive wine list for the size of the place! I'd love to come back! 2 adults+2 youngers, aprox 130 euro, full... read more

the service was efficient and the food artisan - the risotto was too salty and we felt a little rushed as staff looked to get further sittings. Pleasant setting in a quiet square.

Our first visit to L'Abside (The Asps - as this is what it used to be) was on the 4th night of our stay in Amalfi and the experience was so good, we went back every day at some point; lunch, dinner, coffee and cakes. Please note that the map reference on Trip Advisor is wrong, L'Abside is on Piazza... More

Ristorante L'Abside is a very short walk from the Plaza in Amalfi and is worth every step. This unpretentious restaurant has indoor seating and an outdoor eating area. The outdoor area is uneven, on cobblestones and can challenge your balance once your wine intake starts to peak. We found it charming. Giovanna, the daughter of the chef (her mom) is... More
