When we arrived on our first day in Amalfi we had just traveled for almost 24 hours and it was raining, this all made for an excellent choice of taking a nap all afternoon. The Marina Riviera was the hotel we stayed in and they own this ristorante. As the weather was quite dreary the hotel staff offered to make us a reservation here (ristorante is next door to the hotel).
The service was impeccable, sometimes it was a bit much when they would fill your water or wine glass after every sip you take but we felt very attended to. They gave us the front table at the window which had breathtaking views coupled with lighting in the distance which made for some pretty awesome views.
The food was delicious, I wish I had come with more of an appetite as we only had appetizers and primi dishes. The really awesome piece was the dessert, they brought out a chocolate ball with our area of the world drawn out in 14K foil and then they drizzled it with piping hot sauce which melted the ball and gave way to the delicious creamy middle. They hilariously called the sauce "Berlusconi" which made us laugh.
At the end of the meal they present the man with the check and the woman with a pretty ceramic blowfish, "for your mother".
I wish we had not eaten here on our first night in town as we didn't take full advantage of the menu but I am glad we were able to try out this gem.
