We dined at this restaurant as a couple and we came away with a mixed view on this restaurant. We started with an antipasto plate and while the slices of meat and cheese were nicely presented, we both thought that the other plate, in particular the pizza looked like it was left overs from the day before (see photo). It... More

I really don't know why this restaurant is number 2 on Tripadvisor. But if you like food swimming in fat, this is the right place. We were welcomed with a glass of prosecco, so it was a good start. But as I already have mentioned, everything was swimming in fat, even the grilled vegetables. I had mixed grill and everything... More

I'm sorry that you have not felt comfortable in "tavern". what you call fat is simply extra-virgin olive oil. the base of each recipe of Southern Italy. this kitchen like the vast majority of our customers ... because change traditions? a warm greeting from Amalfi. vicky More

Wonderful restaurant that is a bit hard to find, although most restaurants in Amalfi are quite hidden. Portions are generous and the service is really good! Went there twice on a week stay in Amalfi. Had the grilled chicken, ravioli with tomato sauce, gnocci and a beef steak, all really good. House wine is also excellent. Great value!

It was the best meal in the Amalfi. very nice portions.. the best Rib-eye and good T'bone. If you love to eat meat you should make a visit.

After spending 2 weeks in Amalfi and eating out every night, we stumbled across this fabulous local taverna. Hands down, this was the greatest restaurant of them all for the highest quality of food and service. The staff (especially the owner, Vincenzo, and his amazing home-made limoncello) were wonderful and made us feel extremely welcome. When we return next year,... More

My husband and I visited this special taverna twice in a short visit to Amalfi. The service was personal, warm and excellent. The menu is fantastic, and the flavours of the fresh food are outstanding. We loved it. To top off our meals, freshly made lemoncellos made locally were served with love by the owners. The views from the outdoor... More

Two words: amazing food. This is a small restaurant in a secluded little spot that was well worth the trip. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. There were eight of us and everyone was very impressed.
