“Quaint, Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

We stopped here because it was close to our hotel (La Ninfa). The restaurant was completely empty but the owner took great care of us. I enjoyed the seafood risotto and my husband had the steak. The service was fast and friendly.

“Bellisimo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

La Preferita is a small restaurant about 100 yds. from the Il Nido hotel. There is really no parking but if you can get there, Nicola will take good care of you. He speaks very good English and really appreciates those who try to speak Italian. The house wine is really good and the food is true to the area. Don't forget to try the Lemoncello.

“Authentic food and friendly service in a charming location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

We passed this little gem on our walks back and forth to Amalfi and decided to give it a try. Nicola served some of the best food we had on our vacation! It is worth the trip!
