Beautiful lemon sorbet, made from the family's lemons

Some reports seem to think this place a ripoff, but I guess you pay for quality. Very friendly owner and sitting on my the little seats, on the steps off the main street after a hard walk from Ravello to Amalfi, it was worth every Euro.

15euro for a single serve lemon gelato and a plain crepe with a slab of gelato on the side. How does it even add up??? Absolute rip off, totally disgusting how they treat tourists like this!! They don't have the prices clearly stated anywhere. Of course no receipt was presented too. It is a shame, as the gelato tasted good... More

After reading about the reviews on this place we decided to try it for ourselves. The Crema lemon ice cream was refreshing but was a whopping 5euros. All other places were about 2-3 euros so this was quite unexpected. It's worth a try but nothing out of this world.

The sorbet was good but being charged €5 for sorbet is way too much for lemon, sugar and water. It's my first stop in Amalfi and puts in me a bad mood, and got worse after I read TA reviews that the pricing is inconsistent. Go try another shop.

I know better. But i ordered a small lemon granita without asking the price. Then i learned it was 5 euro. I paid it. My italian friend thought the price was way too high, and asked if i got a receipt (not offered to me). My italian friend went back later to ask the price, and it was only 3... More

We found this little store while wondering around Amalfi one morning. It was early, but I couldn't resist a lemon sorbet. It was light, tart, refreshing, and delicious. We sat on the lemon colored cushioned benches outside and ate it. It was so good I tried to go back another night after dinner. The store was open but nobody was... More

Absolute day light robbery. Came in to try the lemon gelatos and asked for only two scoops. The guy gave us tens of scoops on a pathetically tiny cup like how someone desperately trying to clear off his junk. At the end he charged us for 9 euros. The gelatos were disgusting. They were icy, not smooth (no, we didn't... More

We were walking around the town tired and overheated. I saw this small shop and bought lemonade for me and my friends. It was fresh and delicious but extremely expensive compared to other shops around. 1 average glass of lemonade €5 which was made with just 1 lemon. Try to find cheaper places.

Shure, we are in the Amalfi Coast but 7 euros for an orange-lemon juice with some ice??? Well located, and it has sits outside... in case you need something fresh.
