We came here for a special occasion on the recommendation of our hotel; "bravely" ignoring the relative low rating on Trip Advisor. It's a genuinely smart restaurant, with extremely professional and attentive service. A great wine list, and the food is a level above the more standard trattoria fare, which itself is consistently outstanding. If you're looking for a somewhere... More

You would be forgiven for not making the effort to find and eat here - it is a very lovely, lonely spot for a restaurant. Be brave, dice with death on the road there and make sure you don't miss it. There is a sensational experience in store wherever you eat on the multi level site. It is a genuinely... More

We booked a table at Il faro di Capo D'Orso in advance, as a part of our gastronomic trip to Campania. Same evening we arrived to Amalfi from Salerno and passed the restaurant on our way, to return in a couple of hours. It is located outside major towns, but enjoys an exceptional view over Amalfi bay. At night the... More

We have celebrated a birthday in the restaurant after specially booking a table for that evening. The food was excellent and served according to all etiquette and flair of a micheline star restaurant. Wines were also good and well fitted the courses. What an experience!!! Made a nice memory to tell our friends :-)

We stop there by chance, and by the view that we imagined it had. We were surprised by a 5 * chef cuisine, and a even better view than expected. It was not the cheapest restaurant, but it worth it!!! If you are around do not hesitate!

If you like gastronomy, this is a must go. The fish was really fresh and I was impressed by the quality of it. Dish was full of flavor and the atmosphere is perfect. Just the best restaurant I went in Italy including Rome, Verona, Venice and Positano.

What a great experience! The location of this restaurant is out of town, along the coastal road, but it is very rewarding to get there. Stunning views, a well designed restaurant, the staff is very friendly and does their utmost to be of service (in spite of some staff's lack of knowledge of English). Great food, very good wines, all... More

Ok this place is expensive (by my standards)- very expensive but worth it! A fantastic experience for the most expensive meal I have ever had. We like good food and often feel let down eating out but this was great. It was the pinnacle of a wonderful stay in the area and worth missing several lunches for to blow our... More

My lady and I found this restaurant purely by chance on a drive back to our hotel. We were greeted, dusty and tired, at the front and pointed to the restaurant below.. What was on offer was not only a magnificent view of the coastline from a wonderful height but service of the highest order and food that made us... More
