I've been to Italy many times, and am particular with restaurants. This was by far the best restaurant I've been to in Italy. I dined there on my first day in Atrani, and was so impressed that I went back every day for the remainder of my trip (some days for lunch, others for dinner).
It is a small, intimate venue with just a few outdoor tables in the lovely Piazza Umberto in Atrani (which may be the prettiest town in all of Italy). It is family-run, and the service is friendly and impeccable. Carla makes you feel like part of the family! The food is fresh, innovative, and just downright delicious. I tried the veal scallopini, gnocchi, chicken, and other dishes. On July 22, the feast of St. Mary Magdalene (the patron saint of Atrani), I asked for "o sarchiapone," (hollowed zucchini stuffed with cheese, veal, etc.) which is the traditional dish in Atrani for the feast day. It was not on the menu, but they were very happy to make it for me -- and it was just terrific. The desserts are divine, and wonderfully plated.
This is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. I returned from my trip a few days ago, and have already begun recommending it to friends. If you are in Atrani, do not miss it. If you are in Amalfi, Ravello, or Positano, make a special trip to Atrani for this wonderful restaurant.
