Evening dinner for party of 5

Excellent food and service, and reasonably priced. The special fish of the day was very good, and others in our party tried the pizzas - recommended.

We spent 10 days in Minori and along the Amalfi coast line. We visited 2 Michelin starred restaurants, La Caravella & La Sponda and I can honestly say the quality of food in Giardiniello is up there with best....in fact it is better than La Caravella. The menu is extensive with some beautifully imaginative dishes. The portions are generous to... More

What a wonderful experience worlds away from other restaurant experiences on the Amalfi Coast! The quality and care taken in preparing and cooking the food was clear and the service was very attentive.

This is the worst meal I have had in the Amalfi Coast by a long way. It is hard to believe that this place is so highly rated on trip advisor. As I left the restaurant and waited for a taxi (there were none), all that went through my mind was the song "Thriller", but the word "tragedy" was transposed... More

Best restaurant we found in Minori. Excellent service, big portions and high quality food. Also great for take-away pizza (delicious, light and crispy) and so cheap - 4 euros per pizza!

We (small group) dropped in for lunch & were accommodated immediately. The most delicious food we have eaten in italy. From the bread, oil, fresh pasta, seafood & deserts. Would highly recommend for a meal or even a desert & coffee.

Probably the most upmarket and romantic restaurant we ate at during our week long stay in Minori. Great food, wine and service. Would definitely recommend!

If you want typical Amalfi Coast food away from the crowds of tourists in Amalfi, Positano or Maiori then go to Minori and go to Il Giardiniello. It is in a beautiful garden setting and has a wide selection of wonderful of Amalfi Coast food. I had the most beautiful bowl of mussels with pasta. The food was not tricked... More

The food at this restaurant is really outstanding. We (3 of us) stayed for 4 nights in Minori and planned to eat at a different restaurant each night, but after the first meal here we decided that we had to come back the next night to sample more dishes. As a consequence, we came here 4 nights in a row... More
