We can reassure you that we personally know the local artisans who produce the local delicious mozzarella (it's from the Lattari Mountains) and that we never received any complain about its quality. If we were in your place, we'd... More

People were really nice and helpful, and the food was surprisingly better than all the other places we found in Minori. If you want to 'go out for dinner' then this is the place. ?They serve a light lunch, too, with the usual pizzas and pastas, but better than many; In the evening I had hot fried anchovies stuffed with...

We visited here a couple of times whilst we were in Minori. I'm vegetarian and really wanted a spicy pasta dish but sadly the menu in that respect was quite limited - so it was good old margarita pizza for me but wow ! I'm not a pizza lover usually but this pizza was amazing ! Second visit I had... More

Actually all the food was... More

If you visit or stay near the town of Minori, that is south of Amalfi, you have to eat at this restaurant. It is "the place to eat" in Minori. The service was excellent and the food was great. Anything with seafood was wonderful. There was plenty of good bread with the meal. The salads were also quite good. The... More

We've been coming here for some years now, and it remains a favourite destination for lunch. This time we ate here twice. Our first visit was on a lovely sunny day and it was a pleasure to sit under the vines and enjoy mussels and spaghetti from the (not so light) lunch menu. Our second visit coincided with an absolute... More

Ask to try the zucchini flowers stuffed with ricotta. So incredible. We really loved this place. Friendly staff and delicious food. Great house wine made right next door in ravello.

Il Giardiniello was recommended to us for dinner by our local host and we loved it!!! We went back twice and had wonderful fish dishes and very good service. A bit pricey compared to other places but well worth the premium. Absolutely recommended.
