Description: Only a few steps away from the cathedral, hidden in the alleyways of Amalfi in one of the most ancient and peaceful squares of the town, is the Taverna Buonvicino. In the authentic tradition of the Amalfi Coast, our guests will enjoy an a la carte menu and a food and wine tasting menu, strictly serving only products in season, to give them a taste of the places and culture of our territory. For those who want to discover the Hidden Amalfi we suggest a journey that starts at the table and leads towards the colours and tastes of our territory where you can discover new places of belonging. Finally, a hidden corner to propose to those guests of ours who love small surprises. We look forward to seeing you here in this hidden corner because 'The true taste of Amalfi is hidden in the alleyways'

“Worth every cent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

The food here was a culinary delight in a unique setting.

We found the restaurant by wandering through the maze of backstreets trying to escape the strip. We stumbled upon a courtyard outside a church and we're greeted with such a warm welcome by Alex (the waiter) that we decided to spend a bit more than usual and eat here.

Alex recommended some dishes and really knew the food and he was right, it was incredible.

The setting adds to the meal as whilst we are we watched the locals make their way into the church, heard them sing hymns from our table then watched as the whiles away the hours on a bench gossiping.

You will not regret eating here.

“What a great way to spend an evening in Amalfi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We saw the reviews here on Tripadvisor, and thought "we have to go there" and so do you. Great place, nice and clever waiters, really good food and excellent housewine, what's not to like? If you wan't some really good amalfian dishes and really good service, this is the place. Of course the prices are a bit above mainstream in Amalfi, and it's worth it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We went to this place based on a recommendation from our hotel. We would have never found it but glad we did. The food, atmosphere and service were top notch.

“Phenomenal food, spectacular location and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We had the buffalo bites, pasta with mussels and mozarella with nuts and lemon, all of which were absolutely scrumptious! We didn't leave a single morsel! A nice, friendly atmosphere with excellent service. Brava!

“Quiet and Off the Path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We found this quiet and hidden gem on one of our evening walks. The service was great and the food very tasty. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic, place to dine away from all the noise in the square, this is the place.
