We arrived here at the end of service really but the staff welcomed us! Their speciality are anchovies, which we had for starters, there was an assortment of about 6 different ways to cook them, delicious! My main course was pasta with anchovies, delish, my sons pasta was scrummy too! My husband... read more

This place doesn't disappoint - incredible seafood (make sure you get anchovies!), pasta and some of the best pizza I've ever had. Add the ambiance of the quaint fishing village of Cetara and you can't go wrong!

I went to this restaurant for lunch with my brother and sister. We had the best food/drink. We loved it that much went back for dinner that night and had a pizza (1 meter long), it also was beautiful. I would recommend this to everyone who wants to have a romantic dinner too. Ask for Tanino and he will look... More

Food, waiter service and ambience were all excellent. We had seen the restaurant featured in Anthony Bourdain's 'No Reservations' food and travel programme, and decided to give it a try. Highly recommended.

We were offered a seat outside but asked to sit inside as it was getting chilly. This was no problem to the staff who found us a nice table inside. The food was excellent and we had a very good meal which we enjoyed. The staff were helpful and we would recommend this to other travellers

Came here on our first night in the Amalfi coast. The food was good but not exceptional as reviewed.

Very nice local restaurant with a beautiful terrace on a charming little square. Outside seating is a real treat, inside however, as often in the region, is less charming. Typical local fare with lots of taste, and generous portions. Inexpensive menu, an excellent deal.

Excellent starters of caprese salad and mixed green salad then tuna Genovese pasta and a prosciutto pizza along with house red wine all of which was enjoyed. Only negative was some heated discussion between staff members. I know Italians are animated speakers but this went beyond that. Better to have that kind of interaction off to the side somewhere and... More

I visit the Amalfi Coast often but this was my first time I stopped in Cetara to eat at Al Convento Ristorante I noticed they had Coniglio "rabbit" on the menu. I always had Rabbit growing up. I can tell you the rabbit he prepared for me was one of the best if not the Best I've had. My wife... More

It was a wet and dark night in March. The ten mile drive to get there was edgy. When we got into Cetara we struggled to identify the entrance in the dark. When we got inside the spacious dining room contained two other diners at that point and the numbers never exceeded eight. Not a propitious start. However the waiter... More
