Right on the main square in front of the cathedral so obviously the prices are a bit steep, but drinks came with complementary crisps and nuts. Very enjoyable spot to relax and watch it all happening. We didn't eat here but other tables did and were pleased with their meals. Waiter was friendly without overdoing it. Nice place.

We had been travelling in Italy for nearly two weeks and quite frankly were tired of pizza, pasta, over priced meals, cover charges and little to no hospitality. We chose Bistro F. Ili Pansa for a couple of reasons but are pleased to say it checked all the boxes. The evening started off on a very positive note when we... More

We did not eat here, so I cannot comment on the food. Cute little spot in the middle of the square in front of the Duomo. We had 2 glasses of wine and watched to people go by for an hour or so. Service was great, staff friendly that did not rush us along even though we just had drinks.... More

Great location in the square, we just stopped for a drink or two. Service was a little slow, but luckily we weren't in a rush.

Situated in a prime area for people watching and shade, we stopped by for a quick bite. Our waiter was one who seemed like she wanted to be anywhere but there, and when she was off her shift her replacement was no better to us. Ordered margherita pizza and it was the worst one we've had in Italy so far... More

We were running away from rain and saw this nice and small bistro. Seafood was great so was pizza. My wife enjoyed pasta! Prices are reasonable, 2 courses and a drink pp30 EUR.

We stopped for lunch last week and ordered two drinks and two bruschetta. Forty minutes later, and watching other guests who ordered after us being served, we asked where our food was. No result so we asked again. When it eventually came, the order was wrong and the waiter got angry yet it was not our fault the establishment got... More

I stopped in for a quick bite and espresso. The service was excellent, and understanding my time was limited, they were extremely accommodating. Stefano was very kind and helpful. The establishment also accepts credit cards, which is not common in the area.

You would think that ordering a margarita pizza in the town in which it was born would be a great choice. However, ours came to the table with mixed cheese and absolutely no basil or tomatoe. A margarita pizza is very simple, fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato. Fail. I should also mention that it had a piece of tinfoil stuck... More

After wandering around Amalfi looking for somewhere for lunch, we chose the restaurant as it looked more stylish and relaxing than some of the others in the main square, We sat outside with a lovely view of the cathedral and enjoyed a glass of wine and one course each. I had the salad crepe, which was delicious and packed full... More
