My husband and I have been in Amalfi for a week. We have enjoyed various restaurants in terms of price and location. We had dinner at da Baracca on our last evening in Amalfi. The service was very slow and the food was mediocre and unsubstantial. When we asked for the bill, the manager/owner composed it by hand. My husband always does a "gross error check" so that he knows roughly what to expect when the bill arrives. He estimated 70 euro so we were surprised when presented with a bill for 101 euros. We immediately asked for the menu and, unsurprisingly, the bill was corrected to 71 euros - without much of an apology. We do not believe that this was a genuine error. We would highly recommend 'ND A' Mecca which is to the right of, and adjacent to, da Baracca. Having eaten at da Baracca, we checked the reviews and we are not surprised by the negative comments.

Da Baracca is a family run restaurant that serves good, down to earth food. Prices were fair and portions were large. Wait staff were very friendly and were always around to refill drinks, etc. Pasta was decent and at 9 Euro a bottle, so was the house wine. The restaurant is located in a small square not far from the centre of Amalfi or the beaches. A great place for a good lunch or a quick dinner. Also, no cover charge for a table!
Try the risotto with seafood, or the seafood stuffed ravioli.

There's really not much to recommend this place when there are so many much better options.

Standard fare, supposedly "home-made" pasta that certainly didn't taste that way. Bland bland bland boring and forgettable.

The aggressive to the point of rude waiters (who seem to think they're being friendly) complete the picture of a tourist trap you're best to avoid if you're looking for a good meal.

On the plus side, the setting in the little square is pleasant, and it's a great place to people-watch, even if all the people you're watching are tourists. The house wine at 9 euros a bottle is in fact drinkable, which will help you forget the food.
