“A disappointing meal.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This restaurant is in a fantastic position in an old tower on the edge of the sea with excellent views of both Amalfi and Atrani. Unfortunately, both the service and the food were poor and certainly did not justify the high prices. The menu was uninspired and the food stodgy. A dish of prawns with cous-cous featured warm prawns on a large mound of cold, tasteless cous-cous. The waiter virtually threw our wine into the glasses, splashing it on the table each time. There is much better value to be had in the cheaper restaurants round the corner in Atrani or just down the road at the more up-market "Eolo".

“Disappointing at the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Booked and had a specific room confirmed. Was given a different room and told it was an upgrade. Didn't agree-felt I was sharp practice.
