“Good seafood on the beach”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We had pranzo here recently on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The dining area is large and they have extensive outdoor seating for the summer. The waiters and owner were very friendly and willing to answer our questions on menu items. They provide a shorter menu but you can also order from their wider menu and there are daily specials.

We had the risotto con gamberi, secondi with fish and salads. With water and a half bottle of Ravello white the total was just over 80€.About average for Amalfi. They also offer pizza at lunch.

This was recommended by an expat in the area and we were pleased with the food, service and setting.

“Really satisfied”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This restaurant overlooking the port of Amalfi reccomended by a policeman who asked where to park and eat , it left me very satisfied.

Delicious appetizer of seafood with clams, mussels, and bruschetta with tomatoes.

Delicious parmigiana fish azzurrods as a starter, excellent octopus squid and shrimps, anchovies stuffed with mozzarella for framing.

All'entree i had already figured out that it was the best fish dinner of my life,

We were advised the friendly waiters one first course, linguine with prawns, good good good

Fried fish really well done and not greasy, try it because it caught in the sea of Amalfi ( I saw a local fisherman come in with red sqiud )

Very complete wine with white wines unavailable

It is worth eating at this restaurant with panoramic views and fresh products.

“A good experience”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

We decided to put aside the bad reviews and try for ourselves. It was a relatively quiet Sunday night in October after the trippers had gone home. Our own experience was good service, a varied menu, reasonable prices, especially for wine which can be v expensive in Amalfi, good food and a stunning location in the harbour. Can certainly recommend this restaurant..

Very good restaurant, good service huge portions, nice view and relaxing atmosphere. We would come back for sure. I did the mistake to order the fish soup and a dish but the portiobs were so big that i eat only half of it..... so take care better order the soup and if you still have place thsn take the second. Very good restaurant and good prices. I also add a picture of the fish soup
