You don't just go to this restaurant to eat good Italian food. You go to become part of the Buonocore family, to experience the culinary delights that leave the traditional Amalfitana kitchen, to wine and dine on crisp white wine and handmade tuna croquettes, grilled flying squid caught that day, and fresh tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella. You go to finish your meal with a dessert made by the owner's nonna- a local favorite, chocolate covered eggplant.
All of the food is amazingly fresh. When I say fresh I mean that the fisherman delivers the mussels and clams in buckets every day. Luigi the vegetable man delivers fresh veggies, herbs, and fruit- every single morning.
The food here is so fresh, so healthy, and so made with love. I've been told by other tourists staying in the Amalfi area that they ate their best meal at Mistal and I have to agree with them.
As a cook who specializes in Italian cuisine, trust me when I say that this quaint little place may be Italy's finest dining, set in an unpretentious, warm, and inviting atmosphere.
Vai, vai- mangia!
