We ate at Il Rifugio twice during our week stay in Praiano. Both times were incredible! We let Aldo, the owner, choose everything for us from our starters to our dessert and he did not disappoint! The simple mozzarella on the lemon leaf was incredible. We also ate both fried and grilled calamari which were delicious. The pizzas are great, too! You can't go wrong!

We felt so welcomed and taken care of during our two fabulous dinners there and the beautiful sunsets were the icing on the cake. We still talk about how much we loved it and wish we could go back! Thank you, Laura and Aldo!

This is a tiny little pizza plus eatery just above the center of Vettica Maggiore. We had lunch here and found the owner to be delightful and friendly. The salad was excellent as ws the pizza. Recommended.

Great home-cooked Italian food, and very friendly chef/owner, Aldo. My daughter ordered the margherita pizza, and I ordered the quattro formaggi rigatoni pasta. We ended up having half of each other's food because it looked so good, and looks did not deceive!

We just stumbled upon this small trattoria walking around in Praiano. Aldo the owner greeted us at the door. He was quite welcoming and inviting. He and another older gentleman cooked the food fresh in the small open kitchen. The pasta was really tasty and nicely al dente. We had fresh seafood pasta with small clams 'vongole' and large grilled prawns. It's simple not elegant dining at all but good value.
