Beautifull terrace on a little square in a charming village

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

We were treated very nicely here. They have a fixed price 4 course meal for 32 euros. We didn't have any, but the restaurant was doing a big pizza delivery business, so it must be good!

We ate here in October 2013. This restaurant was recommended for its amazing anchovy meals served in all sorts of styles by Lonely Planet. As we are great lovers of anchovies, particularly Italian style, we wanted to eat here after a morning visit to Paestum just south of the town of Cetara. As this is not a tourist area, the... More

We had lunch in Al Convento as we were visiting Cetara. As we saw through the village, anchovies (alicci) is the highlight here. We ate only fish courses and all was fresh and good: we had the prefixed/tester menu, anchovies, seafood. Service was ok (not so friendly though). Prices seemed ok for food but rather high for the drinks.

We were staying in Cetara and had dinner in Al Convento one evening. It is situated in a Piazza in a busy-ish part of the village and it was good to see locals going about their daily routines whilst we enjoyed our meal. The service was good and the food was fresh. We had a starter each (Calamari and Buffalo... More

I would not mind to travel to Italy, just to go back and dine in Al Convento! After meeting The Chef, Sig. Pasquale, our lunch started to get more interesting...With his suggestion, we have tried the anchovy in olive oil... another three more... then octopus to catch of the day!
