“Best cafe in Amalfi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We stumbled across this little gem in Amalfi for lunch. We had just take the bus from Praiano to Amalfi and were feeling quite unwell, Gerardo was very considerate, he looked after us so well, we came away feeling so much better, Thankyou Gerardo, fantastic service and the food was delicious.

“Hidden gem!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We walked off the busy front street, found a little square and clocked this place. After exploring a bit more, we headed back to eat here, it was full of locals and clearly well respected. It was great value and the service was excellent. Go and find it if you are in Amalfi. Brilliant!

“cute and off the beaten track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

With cruise ships nearby the ,main street is very crowded during the day. This little square to the left of the main street is very charming and has at least four local restaurants.

“Must go - friendly, affordable and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We ate two meals here in our stay of two days in Amalfi- good food in an outdoor seating. They have a small sitting place inside but the outside seating is excellent in a small square in a bylane off the main street - cosy and quiet.

The hostess owner was very friendly and warm, gave suggestions, chatted with us.
The food is served in cute and colorful local ceramics. The food portions are large and very reasonable pricing with no service charge or cover charge.

I loved this restaurant for the true flavor of Italy and not trying to just ripoff tourists like in most other touristy restaurants.

“La Piazzetta: feel the real Amalfi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

La Piazzetta is a cosy and typical Amalfi mini restaurant and bar.
Located at a small and romantic little square , especially in the evening
with candle lights, where you feel immediately at home on the
teraca outside with embrellas and good atmosphere.
Viviana and Franco welcome you with Italian hospitality and
try to comfort all guests. Inside is a mini restaurant with a limited
number of tables, but also very cosy.
The food has a good quality and the prices are modest.
If you are in Amalfi you have to be at least in La Piazzetta once.
Ps and.......do not forget to drink the excellent morreti draught beer or the Pinot gringo
Wine and ......the lemon cake
