Great food, good price, extremely large portions!

Good food at a cheap price. Extremely large portions, you won't be able to finish your dish. And in the end they will offer you complimentary limoncello. Don't miss out! Go there!

We had dinner here earlier this week and had pizza and pasta. The portions were huge and we couldn't finish it all. The tiramisu was delicious. Appreciated the limoncello (especially the strawberry!) Prices were very reasonable.

We found this restaurant entirely by chance, and I am so glad that we did! Rode in on a vespa and easily parked out front. We walked down the stairs and into the main restaurant area. It was around noon, and so we were not there at a normal lunch hour. However these Americans were hungry! The staff was kind... More

We were here in the off season so firstly we were just glad that something was open. The place is family run, with the family watching tv in the restaurant as you eat. Not a great look, but didn't bother us too much. We had the mixed seafood platter for 2 which could have fed about 6 people. It was... More

Service was acceptable but the food itself left much to be desired. First no pizza was available because they didn't want to turn on the ovens. So we were left with pasta which wasn't bad but fairly bland. The prices were also rather expensive given what was delivered along with the automatic gratuity. Have no desire to ever eat here...

This family restaurant is a hidden gem. I can't believe how amazing the seafood was. My husband had the seafood antipasto . I had a fresh ,thick spaghetti , the grandfather makes fresh daily. I could not stop eating it until it was all gone. The best red sauce. I had the pasta with seafood in red sauce. Manga,

Enjoying this place is all about expectations. As long as you don't expect a fancy spot or white glove service, you will have a great time! Casual place, inexpensive food, my husband loved the pizza, and my pasta was pretty good. (I would recommend getting pizza though, it seems to be the better choice.) We had a great inexpensive house... More

Ate here twice with friends on our recent stay in Praiano. Pizzas and grilled prawns were the highlights. House wine was lovely and a half bottle to take home on our second night was a nice touch.

There are many years that I come to this restaurant! The reason is very simple. I think visiting the Amalfi Coast, with gems such as Positano and Amalfi, are definitely the highlight of our region, but if we combine this with the fantastic sea and a good meal of fish I think it's the best feeling we can expect.

Great view and service. The Eggplant Pasta was one of the best dishes we have ever had in Italy. The sauce is unbelievable.
