“Lovely food and ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

We chanced upon this delightful taverna in a quiet lane way and enjoyed friendly attentive service and delicious food. The spelt grains with local seafood was excellent!
Recommend that you step off the tourist track and enjoy the local hospitality

“Do not bother”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

If you order the special, be sure to first ask the price. Otherwise, when the bill comes, it will be a shock.

They do not start serving pizza until 1900 (7 pm). The food is mediocre and the service is pretty poor.

All in all, we ended up with an expensive late afternoon lunch for two.

“terrible service, worse than average food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We should have realised once we sat down that it wouldn't be a culinary delight but were patient and thought positively - wrong! The waiter was abrupt, avoided eye contact and non interested. Our starters were reasonably good but again the service was poor. The main, served by a third different waiter with similar lack of interest, was bad, Whilst the Amalfi coast is full of tourists it doesn't mean that they have no taste, what was called steak on the menu was all fat and sinew and unedible, the side of fries arrived 15 minutes later, half cooked without any word of apology or explanation. Their saving grace was that at least they didn't charge for the potato offering. Such a shame as the setting is pleasant and could be a lovely restaurant if only they cared.

“Good food, horrible service!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Before you are seated at a table, the waiter and owner(?) are most friendly and welcoming. After starts the disappointment. The food is very good. The service is terrible, the waiters liteally throw the plates at customers faces without even a 'buon apetito'. Also, a good tip is make sure to ask the price of the dishes when they are price of the market, as otherwise an intense discussion is likely to happen (luckily we had done so before ordering), but still once you get the check, you find out that items have been added which you did not order (and at what price! a beer for 16eur!!). After correction, the check was not yet correct.. this is a tourists rip off.. So, make sure you check thoroughly the number of items+ the prices next to it!!
