Lovely spot by the beach

Alfonso A Mare is one of 4 different restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the Marina Praiano. This one probably has the prime location directly facing the waves with an inside and outside dining area so you can choose the ambience you are looking for.

We ate lunch during a heavy rainstorm and they opened early to accommodate us. Octopus salad was great and Spaghetti was the best pasta that I have ever eaten at a restaurant

I did have a wonderful lunch yesterday but upon arriving this morning after a morning swim, I was rudely told the restaurant was for hotel guests only (looks like a real dump of a hotel) and made to sit outside even though I was paying for a cappuccino. I then got a hard time about using their wifi which I... More

We had the most fantastic experience at the Alfonso a Mare restaurant. We were met at the outside deck by Camillo who determined that not only could he accomodate our party of six but that we would have a special experience. We had wonderful appetizers, delicious fish and pasta and listened to the ocean waves while we ate. I highly... More

Amazing location but 10km to Positano and Amalfi and not that easy to get to either. Our room was 200 euros a night, had no windows and a door that opened into an alley way. Breakfast was ok but average. We left early and moved to Positano.

The service, the food and dining right on the little beach overlooking the Sea was the BEST! This little gem in Praiano was by far our favourite spot to hang out.

We had a swim at the beautiful little beach at Marina di Priaia - just in front of the restaurant... We asked one of the waiters (Camillo) to call us when a corner beach front table for 4 was available ... he did and OMG some of the best mussels, clams, red squid / octopus I have ever had were...

We stopped off very briefly on a recent trip and found this gem of a restaurant. We eat very simply by just ordering spaghetti with Zuccini and spaghetti a Pomodoro and both dishes were cooked very simply but to perfection.

The hotel is great and a lot less expensive then Positano. The good thing is the bus stop is right there to go to Positano and the neighboring cities. The owner of the hotel is nice and his daughter and son and really helpful. The restaurant is ok. I preferred the two other restaurants the Alfonso but perfect stay on... More
