We had a lovely meal - sat at a table in the window as we had not booked. Delicious swordfish steak and ravioli. With a great recommendation for dessert. The staff were the highlight. Welcoming, friendly and very personable. It was obvious, whilst we dined, that they had some customers who returned often. And why not!

Try the seafood risotto at this nice restaurant with wonderful and friendly staff. Everything was perfect at the little square, much better than the busy main street.

On our last evening in Amalfi we had spent the whole day on the water and wanted something laid back. Our BnB suggested this place for wonderful family food. It did not disappoint! They welcomed us late at around 930/10pm and were so friendly. The seafood, pasta & steak were all up there with the best on our trip. It's... More

In an area with many great Restaurants, this must be one of the best. Lovely location in a quite piazza. The service and food were absolutely superb, minestrone, caprese salad and seafood risotto all cooked to perfection. What realy topped this off was the kind and attentive service from all staff. In particular was the lovely Anna, who wrote the... More

Our concierge recommended L'Abside when we asked for a recommendation for a good, low key local restaurant with great food, and L'Abside was perfect. The lasagna and the tiramisu were big hits. Lovely eating outside in the beautiful square. The service was personal and excellent. Highly recommend!

On the recommendation of our B&B hosts, we went for dinner and took the last inside table. Had a view of the kitchen as the door swung open and closed. Took a little longer than my impatient husband could bare, and although the food was good, had to coax him back the next day. Arrived before 6, and had the... More

L'Abside is tucked away in a peaceful corner of Piazza dei Dogi, a short walk from the main square. It is a perfect spot for a relaxing lunch away from the main crowds. Sit outside under the large umbrellas and watch the world go by. The atmosphere and service are excellent and prices are reasonable (for Amalfi). I enjoyed a... More

It's not easy to find a nice and quiet spot for lunch in Amalfi during peak season. L'Abside is perfectly situated in a hidden little square. Everything was great, but we particularly love the prawn risotto in lemon sauce.

Located 1 street over from on the main square with the church. It sits in a tiny little piazza and has a charming atmosphere. It's great for nice, upscale dining and excellent food. Try the Shrimp Risotto with lemon or the Mamma's lasagna. A few other reviewers have mentioned the same 2 dishes and I have to agree! They're really... More

The service was great! The staff was all attentive, funny and on it...which was very nice for a change. The food was delicious-I ordered the catch of the day & shrimp risotto and my husband ordered the steak & shrimp risotto since sharing is out of the question! We did see many other couples order their pasta and muscles dish... More
