“An unexpected sublime experience...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

My brother and I just ate here last night after multiple local recommendations. The attention from the staff, humility of the Chef and then of course, the art of the food...impeccable. We had a local specialty, paccheri, filled with spinach and cheese, with a seafood sauce that enhanced the pasta with a nice note. Also an antipasti which included melt-in-your mouth prosciutto atop this amazing ricotta cream cheese. The highlight for me was grilled mozzarella wrapped in a lemon leaf, which intensified the cheese with an earthy lemon fragrance. For main course my bro had the local snapper which was whole baked in a salt crust, served with diced potatoes. I had the tuna seared with balsamic reduction, accompanied by couscous which was interlaced with pumpkin puree. There was great harmony and balance of all flavors, without steering too far from traditional Amalfitani cuisine. Innovative, and I could tell a lot of love goes into this art. Truly we had no room left for dessert, but they graciously offered us a sampler of mini cookies and limoncello to complete this experience. Hope we can go back again soon!

“A True Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

what a great place, the food was really very good, not cheap but certainly not overly pricey.
The seafood soup was outstanding and the whole experience for my wife and I was really very good.
Would certainly recommend, make sure you are hungry before you go, the servings are very generous.

“Somewhat Pretentious Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

We passed through 3 levels of staff before we were finally offered one of two tables in a nearly empty restaurant. Dinner was OK but staff were overbearing. Overpriced compared to other good restaurants in Amalfi.

“Exquisite dining worth the money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013 via mobile

With a slight drizzle happening we noticed the covered second floor balcony dining just off the duomo square and we won. Beautiful setting, fabulous staff, and each item we were served exceeded our expectations. This is what fine dining in Italy should taste and feel like. Treat yourself and you too will be writing a review

“Amalfi without the crush!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

If you want a great meal in the town of Amalfi AND you want to avoid the crush of the main "street" this is a great place.
This not a Pizza & Pasta place. This is a serious restaurant with some serious food.
The food is terrific! If they have the Tuna "Sausages" on the menu make certain to order them. You will be amazed - I was.
The service the friendly and not pushy.
