“Magnificent view,average food and poor service”
Review of Garden Restaurant

Garden Restaurant
Ranked #8 of 42 Restaurants in Ravello
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $35 - $58
Cuisines: Italian
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Romantic
Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: On the wide terrace on warm summer evenings or in a glass-walled dining room, the Garden's restaurant offers the best of regional cuisine. The style is unmistakable classic Italian and the accents are naturally local - the fishermen's "catch of the day" and the equally fresh produce of the hillside farms, citrus orchards, and artisan "butchers, bakers and pasta-makers".

“Magnificent view,average food and poor service”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

The restaurant has a magnificent view and has a lovely setting.The menu is limited and when ordering we requested the wine list.The food was bought to the table and again we asked for the wine list.On the third attempt the wine list arrived..
The food was average and reasonably presented and the overall cost was a fair reflection of food, wine and service.
Will choose another restaurant on our next visit.

“Wonderfull view and nice cheap food”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

The view is absolutely stunning. The service is good and the food is simple but delicate - and very inexpensive. We did wait quite a long time for the food to arrive at the table but it did'nt matter because of the wonderfull view we looked at in the meantime.

“Unique food with a gorgeous view!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

We ate dinner at one of the many tables overlooking the beautiful Amalfi coastline. The staff were extremely friendly and allowed us to take our time while ordering and enjoying our wine. The menu is actually quite small but all the food is extremely fresh and the dishes offer a new twist to otherwise traditional dishes. Our mixed steamed seafood appetizer was huge and delicious as were our entrees. I highly recommend the gnocchi with sausage in pepper sauce!

“Great food, wrong wine”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Excellent food all around. However, the waiter brought the wrong Falanghina wine to us (we ordered a "top 10" on their wine list) and the table next door ordered white and were brought red. Oddly enough we felt like this was not a mistake but intentional because they thought we wouldn't know the difference!

“Unforgettable View, Great Food”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

We had a wonderful meal at Ristorante Garden after reading about it from a Rick Steves' suggestion. The view was truly unbeatable, and we really enjoyed our lunch. I would particularly recommend getting a seafood dish - fresh caught and complimented by the view. Be aware that it can get chillier up in Ravello than down by the coast, especially if you are eating outside (we were there in mid-May). We were glad we had brought jackets. The lemon dessert can't be missed!
