The restaurant has a great view overlooking the water with a large patio and numerous tables. But it has sen better days, the whole place looks run down in desperate need of a makeover. The furniture looks old, the menus are printed on old laminates and look like the menu at a lemonade stand, the bathrooms resemble those found in a train station and the waiters don't really seem too happy to be there.
Another reviewer was right saying that the waiter rushed them through the courses, same happened to us, but as soon as the lunch rush was over, they seemed to have forgotten about us. Not the biggest deal, we were not exactly in a rush.
The food was quite good, the shrimp stuffed ravioli was great, so was the fried seafood. But the prawns were fried whole, head and shell on, not sure if this is supposed to add to the authenticity but at these prices I would expect cleaned shrimp.
This restaurant may have been a jewel in the Amalfi coast crown once, but it needs a full redo if it
wants to stay in business for long.
