“Superb and inventive food with first class service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We ate here one evening whilst staying in Amalfi following a recommendation in our guidebook. It was a Tuesday evening, we hadn't booked but we received a nice welcome and were lucky enough to get the last available table. We opted for the degustation menu as we are quite adventurous and liked the idea of the chef choosing the dishes for us. We selected a local sparkling wine but the waiter suggested that that another bottle (of the same price) was better in his opinion, so we went with his suggestion and really liked the wine. We were brought some grissini to nibble on and an amuse bouche then a selection of warm bread. The antipasti was octupus in a very tasty sauce served in a jar, primi was homemade pasta with clams and secondi was seabream. We enjoyed all of the dishes and found them to be flavoursome and really well presented. For dessert we had a kind of rum baba filled with lemongrass cream with a crisp wafer of pastry on top. My partner declared that it was one of the best desserts he had ever had! The service throughout was efficient and friendly. The meal was quite expensive at 150 euros but we felt that the quality of the food and service made it worth it for a treat. We would highly recommend this place.

“Very Good Choice in Amalfi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Our visit was for lunch. Before entering we were impressed by both the menu and location. The restaurant is spotless, very attactive and offers exceptional service with a nice seaside view.

The wine list is a book.

While we ordered a light meal with only one course, we would definitely have returned for an multi-course meal were we staying in Amalfi.

The somewhat high pricing is well justified.

The view was fantastic and the restaurant deck was very spacious. The food was good, but a little pricey.

“Beautiful food and view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

A wonderful restaurant with great food, the views are just perfect looking out over the water with a lovely light evening breeze.
A little pricey but worth the cost.

“Don't get the degustation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

We were excited by the menu and decided to get the degustation to get a taste of as much as possible.
Unfortunately they don't tell you what's in the degu and our meals were nowhere near as exciting as the dishes we would have picked from the menu. A bit of a let down in the end.
Service was very good, view is fantastic and wine recommendation was great too.
But leaving with a stomach full of average food and knowing that it could have been so much better for the same price is disappointing.
My tip: go a la carte!
