Phenomenal scialatielli seafood pasta!

We were recommended this place by the local eco-taxi driver when we asked about a great seafood restaurant in Praiano. This place happens to have some not so good reviews on here, but my partner and I and our best friends had one of the best meals we've had in Italy yet! Fresh ingredients, nice... read more

My wife and I came here on a recommendation of le brace pizza. Unfortunately the wood fire oven was not in use for that night (typically only night that week due to a technical problem). Instead we had a delicious seafood risotto and pasta. House wine was very good too.

On a tip from our Benvenuto Limo driver, when asked where to stop for lunch in Praiano, he suggested this restaurant. There is seating on the second floor with a nice view over the town and the ocean. We ordered the pizza for two, but it was huge--quite enough for four! It was great pizza and everyone enjoyed the meal.

We were driving from Naples to Amalfi and we decided to stop and eat at this place. It is right on the scenic highway and they have a parking lot which was very convenient. We had the Sea's joke appetizer which had every kind of seafood you can imagine, even snails! We also had some pasta. It was absolutely amazing,... More

With friendly staff and authentic, great food, this restaurant doesn't have the frills other places do, but you don't need them when your food and drink is this good! Just had an amazing meal. The staff a re great and other locals eat here as well. I take this as a good sign. Will definitely be back here whilst here... More

Visiting plenty of restaurants, a lot felt very touristy and very simple. In the Sorrento region we found that the La Brace was very authentic. Excellent Pizza :) Plus it turns out they have parking which is great. In the area it is very hard to find parking as the streets are very narrow and on the cliffs.

Its one for the locals im afraid. I dont even think this review will bother them that much. We experianced the rudest waiter yet. My wife can be quite indicisive but for the waiter to slump, roll her eyeballs, scribble something down on her pad and the walk off was pretty impressive. we recieved our bottle of wine.... she opened...

We entered at around 22:00-22:30 (so not in the middle of highest dinner time) to have a glass of wine and a dessert. Seemed to be a good idea to finish the day eating a nice tiramisù. The pizzeria was pretty empty. When we told the waiter about our choice, he said: "We serve food here not dessert. Eat dessert... More

They are not keen on Americans or are just not friendly or accommodating. Food so so. Pasta al dente here in frankly undercooked.

We really fancied pizza (ok, so technically not on my diet!).....so I spotted this pizzeria on the first floor in the main road. We wandered up and were sat at a table. It was quite warm - no aircon - but the thought of pizza was worth it. After 5 minutes, and not having even been asked of we wanted... More
