“Atmosphere and food to match”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We came here for a special occasion and it did not disappoint. A 15 minute taxi ride from Amalfi. Engaging, charismatic and knowledgable management, and wonderful food. Authentic interiors, delicious home made pasta, perfectly cooked steak, and lemon cake to die for. Outstanding value.

“Romantic spot for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We chose this place based on Trip Advisor's recommendation and it did not disappoint. It was a September evening, so it was a big chilly, but the view from the patio was worth the goosebumps!
It's a relatively quiet restaurant, off the main road so the ambiance was perfect for winding down after a long day of sightseeing. The food was good as well, and service was pleasant. Definitely worth the trip to Pogerola.

“Just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We came to Amalfi for our honeymoon and have loved all of it. But the meal at La Taverna was the best. For meat, the Tagliata was amazing. For pasta, the Corteche with broccoli and sausage is a must. You should start with the antipasto de la casa, and end the night with a limoncello and a conversation with the owner - she'll tell you all about the region, it's history and some other wonderful nuggets.

“romance in amalfi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

WE were so surprised to find this gem in Amalfi. It is up above the bustling village of Amalfi and has a beautiful view from the terrace. The owner was so warm and knowledgeable and the pizza chef was amazing. We had a delicious meal there, outside with a beautiful breeze. We toured the inside too which was adorable with it's stone/brick oven, stone fireplace and beautiful wooden beams. It was a wonderful evening, not to be forgotten.

Absolutely lovely restaurant 10 mins walk from Grand Hotel Excelsior. Good food, excellent service and nice location. We recommend it for a nice, quiet and atmospheric meal during your holiday in Amalfi, really worth visiting.
