“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We visited this reastaurant on a Saturday evening and due to not making a reservation we had a table inside. The service was so-so, but the food itself made up for it. The buffalo was great, along with the vegatables on the side. the stuffed pork was tasty, but if I went again I would certainly order buffalo still!

“Hidden gem away from the madding crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We stumbled upon this little haven of calm in amongst the madness of touristy Amalfi. Up some gloomy and narrow lane ways we turned a corner and there was this restaurant in a tiny quiet square. We sat outside in the shade and the food was wonderful. It was quite modern styled food with delicious flavours and presentation. The service was fine and the bill was about 60 euro for 3 starters, a salad and 4 glasses of prosecco.

“YUCK!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

By far the worst place I ate while in Italy. The restaurant itself isn't bad, but the food is awful. First off, there is only one meat dish there so if you're expecting more selection, beware! I happen to love seafood, so the no meat doesn't bother me at all. It was just fishy-smelling and good/decent seafood generally doesn't have a smell to it. I will admit, their portions is pretty decent. My husband and I ordered seafood everything, but it just wasn't to par to what we had been eating.

The waiter was ok, not the most tentative. His bus-girl was very good though. While sitting there for dinner, we must have seen 3-4 couples sit and leave. I'm not sure what that's about, but the place was not busy.

“Very good dinner and service in lovely small piazza..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This place was just great with relaxed friendly staff providing good service. The atmosphere in the little piazza is quiet and romantic, away from the crowds. The food was just excellent. It is a little difficult to find, up an alley and then stairway with a sign for another restaurant adding some confusion but don't give up you will not be disappointed.

“Excellent food & off the Beaten track so you can relax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Located in a tiny, quite piazza next to a small church and with amazing food, this is a great way to spend lunch and take a break from the busy main streets of Amalfi. It's a short walk through some very thin streets as you get away from the crowds and the noise. Peaceful spot and the food is very fresh and perfectly prepared. - J&H
