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".

“EXCELLENT WITH VIEWS TO DIE FOR!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

During my last visit, I went there several times and you can tell it is an excellent restaurant: there were always clients about.
A part from the excellent food, the staff is very friendly and the view is... indeed to die for!
Try their fish sautes or the grilled or "all'acqua pazza" fish: fresh, light... delightful!!!
For those in a hurry, they also have a bar terrace overlooking the incredible Amalfi Coast and the vast blue of the Mediterranean and where they serve coffees, drinks and delicious caprese, bruschette, salads, etc, extremely good value for money. It is right next to the town landmark, Villa Rufolo... make sure you eat at the Garden on your next visit to Ravello and get excellent food, a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and a 1st row seat for a spectacular land-seascape!

“Spectacular views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Spending a week in Minori area. We were here earlier in the week and had to come back for the views and a leisure meal. The restaurant is perched on the cliff overlooking Minori and the Amalfi coast. The garden terrace has unbelievable views. We had panini and salad combo plates with wine. The food was as good as anywhere. It was friendly service and priced reasonable. We ate at the outdoor terrace. There is an indoor dining room with glassed views of the coast. It is worth a stop even just to sit with a glass of wine.

“Seafood with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We visited the Garden Restaurant our last night in Ravello. While the location was idyllic, what attracted us to the restaurant was the menu posted above the stairs leading down to the restaurant. It was heavily influenced by seafood and appeared to be just the right choice for dining before a 9:30 pm concert. We chose to share an antipasti of grilled octopus. The best we have tasted since Greece, it was just smoky enough and very fresh. Our primi patti pasta was also one of mixed seafood. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the variety of seafood abundant. I wish we could sing the praises of our second course, tuna steak, but alas the Garden serves their fish thinly cut and could not be done rare enough for our taste. Unfortunately, this is the style of the second courses throughout Italy, whether it be meat or fish, which led us on most occasions to only order an appetizer and a primi patti. Keeping that in mind, I would recommend the Garden for the preparation of fresh fish, their beautiful dining areas both inside and out, and of course, the view!

“Cooking Class with Chef Marco and Mama”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Four of us enjoyed an evening of cooking and dining with Chef Marco Mansi, Mama (his mother) and Paola Cioffi (his sister-in-law) that was the highlight of our trip to the Amalfi Coast. We received aprons and aperitifs and set to work in the restaurant kitchen making pasta from scratch, stuffed anchovies, ravioli, sauces from fresh ingredients, and dessert. We had their full attention and could not have had a better experience. Chef Marco also served wines chosen to complement our creations, and our class was followed by a full dinner using what we had made, plus additional courses, wines and limoncello. We highly recommend the restaurant and its friendly professional owner and his family.
