This little unpretentious restaurant is a gem. The owner is friendly and helpful and the food is simple but delicious. There is a cover charge (as in most Italian restaurants) but for this we received some yummy bruschetta and a limoncello at the end of the meal. We all chose pasta in a variety of forms and and were not... More

Hidden from the main street you will find a “secret” square with 3-4 restaurants, one of which is La Piazzetta. There are no Cars here, but a lot of atmosphere. La Piazzetta serves low budget, but well prepared food.

Stumbled across this little gem and really enjoyed the food especially the complimentary bruschetta and lemon cake to share. Not fine dining but good simple food.

I eat the worse food in Italy here. The only thing you can eat is pizza. I am very angry because I read the reviews here and I went there to eat... It was terrible!!! The risotto was like hospital food also the carbonara and the tagliatelle...

We stumbled across this little gem in Amalfi for lunch. We had just take the bus from Praiano to Amalfi and were feeling quite unwell, Gerardo was very considerate, he looked after us so well, we came away feeling so much better, Thankyou Gerardo, fantastic service and the food was delicious.

We walked off the busy front street, found a little square and clocked this place. After exploring a bit more, we headed back to eat here, it was full of locals and clearly well respected. It was great value and the service was excellent. Go and find it if you are in Amalfi. Brilliant!

With cruise ships nearby the ,main street is very crowded during the day. This little square to the left of the main street is very charming and has at least four local restaurants.

We ate two meals here in our stay of two days in Amalfi- good food in an outdoor seating. They have a small sitting place inside but the outside seating is excellent in a small square in a bylane off the main street - cosy and quiet. The hostess owner was very friendly and warm, gave suggestions, chatted with us.... More
