We had the tasting menu featuring anchovies. Most of the food we were served tasted either precooked and/or previously frozen. Even the pasta was, I believe, store-bought. Our waiter was a courteous but cold fellow. No problem there. But the food was just terrible, well below average. We went there, for it was recommended by Michelin. The Michelin inspectors must...

We arrived in Cetera on the Amalfi coast and we ended up choosing this restaurant because it was on a nice terrace and in the shade. The food was so-so but what ruined it for us was the snobby attitude from the head waiter, can't stand idiots working with the public that don't belong there in the first place. He... More

We visited this place on a recommendation from a guide book. It was just what we were hoping and returned the next night. I had a delicious spritz, mixed anchovy platter for starters which was so good (their local speciality is anchovies) and the 'pie'' also good. They didn't have the gnocchi on the menu still available so had the... More

We had a lovely lunch here, starting with anchovies prepared in different ways, then moving onto delicious local fish. Well worth a visit.

We had a great lunch here. Located along the Amalfi coast just a few short miles from Salerno one should know how to drive the road to get there as it's full of switchbacks and narrow roads. However once you've managed to get there it's seafood is pretty amazing. Ironically I'm not much of a seafood enthusiast but everyone else... More

If you are around, you must eat in this restaurant. Having a table inside is a better idea since the atmosphere is very speacial. The service is professional. We did not book but it was a September evening so it was ok. I tried the spagetti with putanesca sauce: anchoives, tomatoes... it was good. But my husband had Tuna Steak...... More

We went here as it was open and not many of the others at 7:30pm were. Nice atmosphere, ate outside, and we were greeted by attentive waiters. Menu looked good, pizza, pasta, tuna, etc ... We ordered the food, and the starters/primi was lovely and the mains quickly came out ... Or at least my husband's did. He was half... More
