Good but pricey

This is a nice little restaurant down a few steps. The food was good and of course the freshest fish. The assorted fish appetizer was the best we have ever had. The place is very busy so you will need a reservation. It is a great experience but very expensive.

I would recommend going for lunch but dinner can be a bit chaotic! The food was as good as I've had in Italy. Highlights included the Blue Fish Carpaccio, the octopus and the shrimp risotto. We wondered in for lunch having been disappointed by the food and service in nearby Amalfi. The service was professional and confident. The waiter asked... More

I was excited to visit this place as I had read many good reviews. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with the service at A. Paranza. Food was average. We had an hour wait before we got any food. (And it felt like we were annoying the servers every time we asked for something!) Pastas and risottos were cooked nicely but... More

Ate here while on honeymoon with my wife. We made a reservation ahead of time for a table of 2. When we showed up, the server knew who I was from our earlier phone conversation. He me that the wait would be 5 minutes. We were seated 50 minutes later. After we finally got seated, we had to wait even... More

My friend and I ate here one night whilst we were staying in Atrani, out of all the restaurants here this was the only 'fine dining' one and it did not disappoint! The prices were fair, I had the fish ravioli and it was incredible, I definitely will be returning here!!!

I visited this restaurant last night with my partner and 2 friends and I can say it did not disappoint. It was a quiet Sunday evening, service was excellent and the atmosphere was friendly. The house white wine was €16 per bottle and delicious. The included bread was topped with olive oil and tomato. I ordered the stuffed zucchini flowers... More

Atrani is worth a visit as it is well off the beaten track but only a short walk from the much-more famous Amalfi. But in this hidden jewel of a town lies this amazing hidden jewel of a restaurant. The place is always busy (a good sign) so the word is out, and the place and the food and the... More
