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.

“9 visits & not 1 complaint.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We love this restaurant.We have had 9 meals at this restaurant (some this summer & some last summer)& none of them disappointed.We have spent many hours in this restaurant & never saw one meal get sent back..(eyes like a hawk).All the staff were very attentive & friendly & nothing was too much trouble,even when they were absolutely packed out which was every night when we were either eating there or just passing by.If it's packed out you can expect to be staying there a little longer...same in most restaurants...some people just need to chill & back off these hard-working restaurant staff who work in a very stressful environment.Will be going back here next holiday to Amalfi.We love all you guys at this restaurant.

“Unimpressed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We went here based on TA reviews. Two of us ordered from the regular menu, and two of us ordered off the 4 course menu (but different items). Some of the food was good, some okay, and some not good at all. None of it was spectacular. Not sure why this place gets so many positive reviews.

Loved this restaurant. I sat outside and listened to the church bells ring in the square. Great location

“Took forever to get the bill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

I know Italians are known for relaxing after the meal and not rushing out, but we had to ask for our bill three times. We went for a late dinner while in Amalfi and at the end of the night, it was us and one other table. The staff were cleaning up the tables, re-setting everything, bringing tables in from outside, so you'd think they'd give us the bill so we could let them go. That being said, the dinner was pretty good. The pizza and bruschetta appetizer was awesome, definitely recommend it. I got carbonara pasta, required an extra 20 minutes to make, which wasn't a big deal because we ordered an app.

“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.
