“Rip Off”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We had a meal at this restaurant and found the food to be average. The waiter tried to get us to have a starter each but we insisted on one to share. Just as well it cost 18euros. This was not on the menu and was suggested by the waiter. 65euros for vegetables and pasta is grossly overpriced especially when they refused to accept payment by card and insisted cash only which was advised at the end meal. If you don't want ripped off avoid this place.

“Good, healty food in Amalfi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Taverna degli apostoli is located right in Amalfi's centre, right on top of the stairs to the wonderful cathedral: what a great place to est, listen soft music, est healty food. In the kitchen the motore cook traditional dishes, but with a bit of creativity: not many plates, but good quality and quantity. Really resonable price. You eat and, at the same time, you can watch people walkin, the little town bright in the night: amazing!

“I LOVE IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Great quality home made food, excellent and friendly service, great location, right beside the Dom of Amalfi, with a nice yet more reserved view on the main square, soft jazz music was playing and I loved my Spaghetti al pesto di limone... superbe taste!
Will definitely head back there one day :)

“Wonderful food and excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Loved it! Not a typical tourist restaurant - small restaurant hidden next to the cathedral up the steps. Will definately be eating there again!

“Delicious beef steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

I ordered the beef steak which was very tender and cooked perfectly. The service was quick and friendly, and we were seated straight away after having walked away from a nearby restaurant where we waited for at least five minutes being completely ignored. The red wine was nice and so was my partner's bolognese, however, I do prefer some more meat in the sauce. The menu is fairly limited and there are mostly seafood dishes which made it difficult for me to choose a meal as I don't eat seafood, however, I was pleased with my meal in the end.
