“On the marina, very good service; fine food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We went here based on an episode of David Rocco on a food/travel channel. I got the panzanella salad that they showcased on that episode (even though it was not listed on the menu). It was good but not great, portion was huge. My husband got the pasta with clams (red sauce). He commented about how much clam flavor the dish had. I had a pasta dish as well and loved how al dente it was. The service is excellent!! Good wine selection. Location is right on the marina in front of the local beach; you have to walk own a flight of stars to get to. Was very nice sitting right out by the water on a gorgeous night.

“Great meal, great view !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Another stop on our Mediterranean cruise was the spectacular coastal town of Amalfi. Bustling streets, restaurants, bars, ice-cream parlours, cocolate shops……these Italians know how to live !

Before long, lunchtime was upon us again. Having surveyed the surrounds, we opted to hit the beach and lunch at the Marina Grande.

The restaurant “Marina Grande” began life as a seaside bar in 1918 and then moved to its current location on Spiaggia Grande in 1935. Towards the end of the fifties, it evolved into a restaurant overlooking the wonderful expanse of water enclosing the historical centre of Amalfi. Waves break on the beach near the covered terrace while you taste the best of our local cuisine.
“Humility, respect for the ingredients and the culture of nourishment…” is the philosophy of the Marina Grande.

The result is traditional food based on Italian heritage but truly innovative in its presentation. Dishes are created not with overpowering flavors or spice but are savory and light, with rapid cooking methods that retain the integrity of the fresh taste.

Lunch consisted of an entree of local clams and mussels cooked in a spicy tomato and wine sauce. An abundance of herbs and garlic always present, marries perfectly with the delicately cooked seafood. Main course was soon upon us. Spaghetti vongole. In Italy, you never get tired of this dish. Simple in its construction, pleasing to the eye and an explosion of taste in the mouth. Vongole, most delicately cooked in white wine, garlic and herbs, tossed with zucchini flowers proudly straddling the pasta. What more could I ask for.

Our combined rating: 4.5 / 5, a double thumbs up :)

“Just ok. Nothing special”

Went there for dinner on a recommendation from our hotel. We were not impressed. The place is very touristy and the food is nothing great. Would not go back.
