We read on Tripadvisor that this restaurant was great, so we thought we'd give it a try. We didn't have reservations but decided to give it a go. It's a bit hard to find - down one of the side streets alongside the Duomo. But we're so glad we persevered! When we arrived they told us that they would be happy to serve us, but we'd have to wait for 20 minutes. That was absolutely no problem for us. There's nowhere to wait inside this tiny jewel of a restaurant, but there are a couple of chairs outside next to the door. The waiter kindly brought us each a glass of Prosecco.
When we were seated, there was bread, olive oil and herbs already on the table. We ordered a bottle of the (very good) house red wine (only 8 euros!) and decided to share the appetizer. The appetizer is basically 2 to 3 bites of four different tastes. It was plenty for us before the meal. We then shared the risotto which was divine, and then shared the argentinian entrecote (beef) which was some of the best beef we have ever put in our mouths. It came with potatoes.
The service was impeccable. The waiter was attentive but didn't hover.
The restaurant is small and the kitchen is visible - they are very authentic and transparent.
The menu has one starter, usually about 3 primi piatti, and 3 or 4 secondi. This is the mark of a truly good restaurant - only serving what is fresh and available.
All three times that we ate there they had risotto (not on the menu and to-die-for!).
Although the food is as upscale as it gets, the prices are incredibly reasonable. With the bottle of wine, water, shared appetizer, primi and secondi, our total was about 40 euros. Add a second main course for about 12 euros.
If you're in Salerno, or even close, do yourself a favor and eat here!
