We LOVED the food, service and "just like home" atmosphere. We loved everything we ate, especially the home made pasta and the prices were very reasonable. You have to to try this place!!

“Wonderful views with relaxing friendly service and great meal”
Reviewed September 21, 2011

We had lunch here after a long hike from Amalfi thru the Val DES Ferrieres. what a surprise to find this wonderful restaurant in a small passageway offering great views over Amalfi. the service was extremely attentive and helpful. The food was of a very good quality to prepare us for the long descent to Amalfi. worth the trip up the hill from Amalfi.

“Pleasant surprises”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

Amalfi Coast.
We ask information for a good pizza at a local person.
It shows us a restaurant a few miles from Amalfi but not along the sea but inside, in Pogerola. From Amalfi after 10 minutes we arrive in a square where children play soccer. Around the corner there is the entrance of the restaurant " La Capannina ". First pleasant surprise, a terrace with a splendid view over the valley, an unusual position for the Amalfi Coast. We welcome the proprietor, Domenico, with friendly and almost family to accommodate us. Second pleasant surprise, there aren’t the "predators" of the waterfront restaurants trying to "steal" the customers to each other.
So, another pleasant surprise, we have the menu that is not composed only a wide selection of pizzas but also by a variety of traditional dishes of the coastal seafood as well as with other features not just seafood (grilled, scialatielli with mushrooms,
etc. ..). Another feature, there are spectacular olives
that accompany some dishes as well as vegetables, fragrant and untreated.
Anything but negligible, the prices are quite content.

“The best pizza I've ever eaten, thanks Mimo!”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

This restaurant is a real find! Fantastic views, a wonderful welcome from Mimo and his family - a place where nothing is too much trouble. We ate here twice during our 10 day stay in Amalfi and it was definitely the best value restaurant of our whole trip. I like fish and my other half prefers meat so Mimo made us the best pizza with half fish/half meat - it was the biggest pizza I've ever seen! Delicious too :) The Limoncello is to die for, I can't remember the recipe you gave me Mimo so I will have to come back and get it - any excuse! We will definitely be back, go here for a truly delicious great value meal with a very warm welcome!
