Very smart, but this is a classic family orientated restaurant. We were advised to go for the Antipasti, which are plentiful and really well cooked, which worked well. As well as the ricotta and pear dessert, which is an Amalfi speciality. Very good service, but friendly

We had a lovely pizza dinner for 6 persons including a bottle of house red wine, 6 pizzas, caprese, scizi, a bottle of special beer, limoncello, and complimentary focaccia for less than Euro100. The owner was friendly and the meal was just what we were looking for after a long day sightseeing.

We arrived and the place seemed closed. We asked if it the restaurant would open and immediately all the lights went on. In twenty minutes, the place was packed with lively italians. Three generations of a delightful family attended to us. We had pizza and an oven pasta that were great. Not only did they have a wine menu, but an excellent beer menu, which is not common. Dont leave without tasting desert.

Just returned from a wedding in Scala and arrived at this restaurant tired and hungry after a 5 hour drive from Rome.Nothing was too much trouble;made to feel very welcome and devoured a great pizza at a very reasonable price(by AMalfi coast standards).Thoroughly recommended !

While in Costiera for a wedding, we tried this pizzeria with our friends (the couple knew this place). We were already surprised by the appetizers: a wide range and everything very good. Then they have served different type of pizza, to allow everyone to taste different things. There were many French friends with us, and they also enjoyed the restaurant.
Promoted!
If I have to say a negative thing, is that I had to fight with each waiter: before bringing the pizza, they wanted to take away our appetizers which we did not finish. Not really nice...
