Description: At 7 in the evening on 07/07/07 the doors to the Locanda del Marinaio were opened for the first time, the start of a new adventure and a dream come true.A project planned by a family from Amalfi with broad experience in the catering business. The idea of three brothers whose goal was to create a modern and original restaurant, completely different to those already in Amalfi.La Locanda is the ideal place to spend time with your friends, for a business meeting or a romantic dinner. You will be welcomed with the warmth traditional to Amalfi and with the attentive service of our staff who aim to create a pleasant atmosphere.Come and experience tradition with a modern taste.

“Stale food, rude staff - Z Grade restaurant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We selected this restaurant based on tripadvisor comments and could not have been more disappointed with both the quality of meals and the service (or lack thereof)
From the outset the staff were rude and we should have taken note before we ordered meals as the table beside us had half their meals miso redrew and/or undelivered
The male staff members were totally disrespectful and essentially throw meals onto the table and walk away
Additionally Do NOT order Chicken Caesar Salad in this restaurant as it is only old lettuce, a smattering of chicken pieces and some grated old cheese.
This is the worst meal that we have ever had in Italy. How these people make money is a mystery as it is not the quality of the food or the service.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We ate there on July 10 th. service was very good. Food was fresh, simple and delicious.
Seafood salad as an appetizer , enough to share between two.
I had the grilled sea bass with lemon, my husband had the local fish with cherry tomatoes.
Tiramisu with lemon cream was excellent.
Definitely recommend it!

“Superb! Primo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We arrived in Amalfi, checked into our hotel, and decided to stroll through the main pedestrian way of Amalfi to investigate restaurants. The Locanda del Marinaio had a decor, ambience and menu that appeared to be far superior than most of what we observed walking through town. We made a reservation in the inside dining room with the wine racks on the wall. It has an elegant, yet casual feel. You can also choose to sit in the other interior dining room which has warm wood on the walls, or outside. From the moment we arrived, everything was superb. The staff were professional, yet relaxed and very helpful. Our meals were excellent, and our waiter did not hesitate to tell us what was fresh and in season to help with our selection. Highly recommended.

“A wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We have eaten in some of the best restaurants in the world - and rarely go back to the same place more than once as we want to exeriance as many places. However this holiday we went here on the 2nd night, the food, the staff the atmosphire at this venue was so good we revisited it a total of 4 times. The manager discussed the menu and the wines that complemented the food. We met all the staff and some of the family.
Thank you for making our holiday a special one.
