Great food, nice service. Here we had the best fish, which we did not know what it was. Their pasta with scallops was great too.

“Fabulous local cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Mixed sea-food platter with limoncello and tiramisu to finish. Don't know whether it was amatuerish choice but we enjoyed thoroughly. The sea-food was fresh and very well presented. The place is located a bit inside on Piazza dei Dogi. Its easy to find, but away from crowds. The service was equally excellent.

“Best restaurant in Amalfi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

Great location, sat outside under heaters, great service, great menu with good selection. Served my favourite spaghetti vongole perfectly. The panna cotta is to die for. Wow.

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

We were doing a quick tour of Amalfi and wanted to dine someplace away from the crowds with inside seating as the night was cool and one of my traveling companions had failed to bring a jacket or sweater. We hesitated before L'Abside but a diner sitting in an alcove overlooking the terrace called out to us and assured us that we would have a lovely meal - and we did! One of us had the lasagne which the young woman waiting on our table told us was the best pasta available that evening - made by Mama! My friend described it as ethereal - lasagne?? But yes! Antipasti, seafood, pasta, and the house wine - both red and white - quite lovely. There is seating outside and a divine little table for two in a floor to ceiling window alcove overlooking the terrace (where the friendly couple from Germany had beckoned us to enter earlier!) This was the second time in as many days that we stumbled into a restaurant that rewarded our Euros...I think God looks after fools and little children and sometimes, if you are lucky, tourists in Italy. But if I were you, I would heed the advice of other reviewers and book in advance - we were just lucky to get a table.
