“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

When we arrived there was no music, so the "owner"? got the electronic piano set up and played for almost an hour. He was not the scheduled entertainment, but he was great!

“Hillside restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We went there in November - and we were the only guests most of the time. The food was actually fine and the service was impeccable. The only bad thing was they only had one gas heater and when we they thought that we had finished (new guests had arrived) they removed it - and since one side of the restaurant was open, it got very cold and unfortunately, I had a fever the next day

“Fancy a limoncello”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Out of the main town but great view over bay and food was excellent despite rather plain looking menu. Beware the multiple free limoncello's as you leave. Lethal.

“A beautiful view, average food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

This reataurant is located nearby the Santa Katerina hotel just above Amalfi on the coastal highway.
Beautiful view - very charming host Nicola.
Good menu, well priced local wine (approx 10 Euro a bottle).
The food was good but not what one one expect on the Amalfi Coast.
Good quantities of food - but could have been slightly more tasty.
Nicola played a few ditties on the organ and while his voice is past it's use by date -
he was very agreeable.
Overall - ho-hum.

“Good view, poor food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here for food after a long day, mainly because it was near our hotel and they promote the authenticity of their local cuisine. The food was poor and bland and prepared "too quickly". The waitress was keen to take my plate and hovered so that she could snatch it away as soon as I put my cutlery , I like a game so forced myself to finish the food and chew slowly despite the fact I wasn't enjoying it much, just to prolong the torture for a bit longer.The menu is short and basic and not authentic unless you like Risotto made with long grain rice !!!! Save your money there are much nicer places to eat in Amalfi for the same price.
