Seems like there are mixed reviews of this place and I wonder if the time of year makes a difference. In October it was quiet and staff and service very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and the seafront view beautiful as there was no one to obscure our view of the sea. Will come again.

Staff were friendly enough, we went for a pizza lunch. Pizzas were big but not very exciting, and overpriced (at around 8 euros each, compared to better quality and same size pizzarias just around the corner - charging around 4 euros for better pizza!).

This place is a little better than Mammoto next door, in particular the pizza - thin crust and well prepared. Very good appetizers and a good place for lunch or dinner. The menu is average for Amalfi coast.

We ate here twice and also had a pizza to go. Yes, it is busy and yes you may have to wait for your freshly cooked authentic food but what's the big deal when you are on holiday or having a leisurely meal in a perfect location? The fact that the restaurant is very busy and locals are eating the... More
