We got the distinct impression that we weren't exactly welcome at La Brace. The waitress didn't manage to make eye contact throughout the entire process of 'welcoming' us, showing us to our table, taking our order, clearing our plates or presenting the bill - quite a skill! Certainly no hint of a smile!

Perhaps because we ordered soft drinks and not wine, we were considered to be 'below par', but is that an excuse for getting both of them wrong???!

I've seen reviews where people were disparaged because they ordered pizza. My husband did so and it ended up being a white pizza although the menu didn't describe it as such. I had fish which was really tasty but that didn't seem to make any difference to how we were treated.

I suppose you could describe this restaurant as 'no nonsense but good food'. Unfortunately, I prefer to at least feel as if my custom is valued.

Food was average. Service team lacks passion. The restaurant has the aura of 'a once great restaurant that has lost it'.

Excellent cuisine, friendly staff, and an amazing breath taking view! While visiting the Amalfi coast, it's a must you go and have a lovely dinner at this amazing restaurant.

After reading such a high recommendation by an Australian celebrity author prior to travelilng to the Amalfi Coast, we were extremely disappointed with our experience at La Brace.
Greeted & seated with a welcoming smile, the process of ordering something as simple as a Pizza became an arduous opposite. Whilst happy to explain some options in translation, the waiter (the restaurant owner) was not happy with our choice of meals and was somewhat patronising in advising otherwise.
Eventually being able to advise what we would like to eat, our meals arrived once again, the opposite.
The evening got worse when, after offering to re-make our pizzas to our order, they were even worse than the first time! All soggy, soaking wet with an abundance of tomato soup (sauce) surrounded by puffed up & slightly burnt crusts of air. The topping was tasteless & of nothing noteworthy.

It may be that La Brace's speciality is seafood or pasta etc..and perhaps we should have ordered these alternatives but they have an extensive Pizza menu on offer with everything else and that's what we felt like that particular night.

We're puzzled as to what we missed out on at La Brace but we won't be returning to find out and would recommend other places to eat over and above La Brace.
