The first night we had the grilled veggies which were wonderful and the eggplant parm which was the best we have ever had. The second night we had... read 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

The best in town...Even though we had to wait for about 30mn to get a table, it was worth it. Not only foods were delicious but the waiting staff were very professional as well

We dined there our first night and were delighted with the location on the little piazza , the service is first class and the food wonderful. We chose the Shrimp... More

Good food, but it took forever to serve our group of 15....luckily we were in no hurry. It is situated on a little piazza and it was nice...except for the wait.

The restaurant is only about a minute away from the Piazza Duomo but in a quiet and secluded square. We had excellent food (the ravioli in particular was outstanding) and the service was outstanding.

Just come back from a meal here and can not recommend this place highly enough, the food was delicious and the staff are the friendliest in Amalfi by far. The restaurant is in a small square off the Main Street, so it's in a quieter location, I only wish we had found this one at the start of our stay... More
