We visited L'Abside on our first evening in Amalfi. We stopped here because of the plate of mussels being served outside to another guest and weren't disappointed. The mussel soup was fantastic and the pasta simple and perfectly cooked. Good food, reasonably priced, only a few steps from the main square and a little quieter as a result.

These guys are great !! We ate here twice during our 1 week stay in Amalfi. We were very well looked after on both occasions. Lovely personal service from staff who are always smiling. Oh and the food was great on both occasions...best Tiramisu I have ever eaten ! Highly recommend...

We got lucky to get a table without reservations. We sat inside next to the door, it was cozy. If you want to come here it is best to make a reservation and request to sit outside. The staff is really friendly and recommended I order the lemon shrimp risotto ... They say it's number 1. All I can say... More

Well, day 4 and we visited L'Abside - why not earlier we say. Understated but simply wonderful food. The sea food was as fresh as you can catch backed up by some of the best customer service - superb booking, welcome and throughout meal service. As with other places, just go as soon as you can !!

Top food with a friendly atmosphere, every single member of staff who served us were personable. When you enter the piazza, the restaurant and staff dominates it! People were queuing for a table, still there's tons to chose from all around. A testament in itself! The fillet of beef was outstanding and cooked to perfection! Bellissimo!!!

Really good food and the prices are reasonable too. During peak season, book in advance for evening meal to make sure you get a table. We saw a few groups get turned away because they had no booking.

We were 10 adults and 4 children, on a small trip to Amalfi, and we crossed this nice restaurant with a small terase, with very good sea food and pasta and beaf and very nice and helpful staff. It was one of the best restaurants we eat in the area.

Used trip advisor to find somewhere nice and not too expensive. Had two lovely pizzas and friendly service, in the shade of a courtyard for lunch. Nothing more to say. Nice.

This was recommended to us by our hotel and at first I thought they had some mutual plugging deal going on, but even if it was, it was a great tip. It's quite an unassuming place, but don't be fooled, it often gets filled up by tourists and locals alike, especially the outdoor area. Best to book ahead or get... More
