“Excellent pasta, good value, locals favourite.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Visited here on recommendation of the hotel for their pasta. Food was excellent and a good price. The pasta and onion sauce is excellent, although have your mouth wash handy when u get to your hotel!!
This restaurant was full with locals the night we visited which is always a good sign.

“Most authentic, most delicious, and the 3 owners are the best Italian guys around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

So many wonderful things to say about this restaurant, so wonderful in fact that we chose to have dinner there 3 of the 4 nights we dined in Amalfi. The three owners were fabulous, accommodating, sweet, and the entrees were spectacular. Quick funny story: I was craving Tiramisu my first night there and it wasn't on the menu... one of the owners hopped on his scooter and zipped through town to find a Tiramisu and brought it back to my table to my complete surprise. Over the top customer service. That was the first night.. although the gesture was outstanding, I later realized I really never needed to crave or venture outside this restaurant again because everything prepared there was top notch! An important side note: one of us is strict gluten free and the Chef (also an owner) went out of his way to make sure he kept a good stock of gluten free pastas and ingredients.

“resonable and casual style”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

A popular, reasonably-priced, and a casual atmosphere Trattoria. It offers good quality of food and services. Maybe this trattoria is popular for Japanese tourists, there was bid party.We tried Paccheri and Scialatelli with seafood.They were both good.

“Delicious, delicious, delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

This restaurant is located at the end of the crowded street and it was great! I stumbled upon this place randomly and found only Italians to be eating inside... I had the Genovese Pasta (Napoli style) and was blown away!!! The sauce was absolutely delicious... sweet and salty at the same time, boiled for 4 hours in their kitchen! I loved how there was no cover charge and no hidden prices... They also didn't bring you "Free" bread, only to charge you money for it later. Everything was up front and delicious. Would come back again! Service too, was great. They were friendly, smiled, and served very quickly. Loved it.

“best food in Amalfi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed probably the best food in Amalfi with good home made pasta and fresh food.
Price was slighly high but cheaper than other plaves.
Definetely to go as most other plaves are for tourist only.
Amex accepted!
