This place is tucked away from the harbour/seafront and the prices reflect this. Opted for a panini and a glass of prosecco. The food was delicious and the service fantastic. Prices were very reasonable, all in all a good choice for lunch.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a few people so we were excited to try it. I sadly have to say I was disappointed. The food was good but it wasn't anything special, the service was average. The younger boy helped us and took our order what it had to ask him numerous times for the Wi-Fi password and... More

We were recommended to eat in the wine dark by our local guide and her tips were absolutely right. The restaurant is small but with a great atmosphere and the food is absolutely delicious.

Maybe we were unlucky but the food was not good enough from Amalfi standards which are quite good. I had pasta with seafood, but both the vongole and the cozze were over cooked. The service from the two young men – nothing to complain about. We brought a small dog and he was also allowed in.

We had a wonderful lunch here, sitting outside under a large umbrella and received excellent food and service. The owner suggested things for us to try and allowed us to sample wines before deciding which to order. Great food and wonderful atmosphere.
