“Fantastic food and service!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We ate here on four out of our seven nights in Amalfi because we enjoyed the food and the atmosphere so much. The staff were all fabulous and recognised us on subsequent visits with a friendly greeting. Service was quick, efficient and friendly. The setting is in a quieter square and sitting outside, often with musicians playing in the square, provided the perfect backdrop to a lovely Italian evening. The food was gorgeous I especially liked the bruschetta with rocket, tomatoes and mozzarella. The pasta was cooked perfectly and I really enjoyed the carbonara and the bolognese. We tried the lemon cake on the recommendation of one of the excellent staff and it was to die for! Wine was always excellent and kept cold on the table. Limoncello and good coffee were often a perfect way to finish off our meal! Missing eating here already, many thanks to the brilliant staff and chefs for some memorable meals, we will be back on our next visit to Amalfi.

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We ate here three nights out of our six in Amalfi, could not fault it at all. Food and service were excellent and consistent on all our visits. Get there early or book a table as it fills up very quickly.

“Amazing food :)”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Family run restaurant serving traditional food, not overpriced with great service. Highly recommend the Aubergine Pamigiana. Of our 3 nights in Amalfi we ate here twice due to standard of food served.
