I've been in Italy for almost 2 weeks and this is the only restaurant that charged me for bringing cold and hard bread to the table and 8% tax, which I don't even know if its legal in Italy. I called the waitress who, just like any other waiter in Italy that don't care about clients, showed me that all... More

Very nice Frutti Di Mare. Almost too big portions. Very nice view with super service and good house wine. We have travelled around the Naples Islands and this Trattoria comes out top 3.

This is one of the most authentic Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at. Not much to be said really other than the food is amazing, the service is equally as good and you'll go to food heaven eating the gnocchi with mozzarella and the vongele not to mention the seafood platter for two. Lovely staff and beautiful views... we... More

The restaurant has a view over the St Gennaro church and square and onwards over the sea. The staff were very friendly and we ordered the grilled fish for two - an amazing platter filled with local fish and seafood. We couldn't finish!

My husband and I stopped here for lunch during our stay in Praiano. We were a little put off by the plastic tables, chairs, and tablecloths, the hard to read/understand menu given to us (part in English, part in Italian, handwritten), the general level of cleanliness, and the not very friendly servers. However, we had a great view from the... More

Having read other reviews I am surprised, as our experience was quite the opposite. We had very attentive service and good food. The portion sizes are enormous but the selection of seafood and fish dishes great. I di not find the place dirty at all. I enjoyed it so much we went two nights on the trot. Highly recommend the...

From the roadside this place looked like it was a great setting for a evening meal as looks across a square and across the Amalfi Coast. However when you walk down to the restaurant you sit down on garden furniture type plastic chairs and tables. Furthermore the waiter suggested lasagna or pizza which, although snobbish, makes you think bloody hell... More

Bad service, bad food, filthy place. Dusty, dirty, full of load Americans. Very cheap and nasty. I would avoid this like the plague!
