“Look out for extortionate prices!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Paid €6 for a single Gelato, €4 for coffee, €3 for a small plastic bottle of still water.
Their excuse was that they charged a service fee/table fee.

The prices listed were much less than the prices charged although they were also expensive to start with.

Had a beautiful cappuccino and cornetti a little further up the hill for €2 later on that day.

This is the first place off the boat and believe me there are others that are better further up!

“Great for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

When we holiday in Sorrento, we always spend a day in Amalfi and this where we head to for lunch, everything is made fresh to order and the service is very good too.
Prices are very good, especially considering the seafront location. Good cocktails too.

“Lovely food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

My wife and I had lunch here today, we previously ate here in October 2011.

Lovely freshly prepared food which was quick and very tasty, the Bruschetta Amalfitana comes highly recommended, such a simple but amazingly flavoursome dish.
Good gelato too and excellent and friendly service.

“Best Gelato of the Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I had some time to kill before catching the ferry to Salerno. This is the closest restaurant to the ferry ticket office so I thought it would be a good place to have an espresso. Then I notice they had gelato. I hadn't had an off the charts gelato on my trip up until this point. I decided I would try the chocolate and the pistachio. WOW!!! They were so creamy and flavorful - just like the name. I liked them both so much I decided to turn my gelato treat into a feast by ordering a second cup. The gentleman at the counter was so nice too. He explained about the ferry ticket office hours and pointed out when my ferry arrived.

“Be aware with the service fares !!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

If you just want a coffee, better go to another place: they charge the same service rate for coffee than for a meal. 2 coffees plus un cornetto, 9 Eur

I will not come back again !!! This is not the way for taking care of the turists
