“A MAGICAL EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We were fortunate enough to have dinner at the Santa Caterina. The reception was very welcoming and friendly. We had a wonderful aperitif on the magical patio with the most amazing view of the sea and Amalfi. Candles were lit everywhere and the service and drinks were outstanding.

The ride down on the lift, to the dining room at sea level, was an exciting experience.

The meal was delicious and the service impeccable. Can't wait to go back..................

“Just popped in for a quick drink ...and what service we received!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

The Santa Caterina is without doubt my most favourite hotel set in my most favourite part of the world and have therefore stayed many times. So when my wife and i learnt that the cruise we were on was actually dropping anchor just outside Amalfi, a quick trip to sit on the wonderful terrace with a glass or two of Prosecco had to be done.

We havent stayed there for at least three years, but immediately the head doormen recognised us and we received the most warmest of Italian welcomes from the terrace manager, Franco.

After consuming our fill of fizz, olives and nuts, i asked if they could call me a taxi to take us back into town - they wouldnt hear of it and escorted us to their shuttle bus.
Thank you all at the Santa Caterina and we will be returning hopefully next year

“winning cuisine with gracious service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Its an upscale meal of the many restaurants in the area I have visited. Certainly among 3-4 of the best for the area. The service was gracious and the wine list was well put together. I very much enjoyed the fabulous setting and beautifully prepared food. A most relaxing meal

“Wonderful food, good service, beautiful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We had two very good meals here. The first one was on our first night in Amalfi. When the staff learned that we hadn't had time to buy coffee to have in our villa where we are staying, they sent us home with coffee and milk. The food is prepared with care and everything is fresh.

“Spectacular view and heavenly service, but the food doesn't live up to the rest...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We stopped for an impromptu lunch on Easter while driving down the Amalfi coast.
I've heard of this hotel's reputation and was anticipating something extraordinary.
We were very warmly greeted by everyone, from the gentlemen who took our car to the front desk reception to the maitre d'.
We ordered the special Easter lunch which included a chicory soup (delicious), a ravioli dish (starchy) and lamb (inedible).
The staff was really lovely and I wanted to enjoy the food more just because they were so kind and attentive. But the food was rather disappointing.
The view is out of a movie.
