“Outstanding Pasta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

We were blown away by the food. Being in Italy & eating a lot of pasta you learn to pick out the good ones. That was certainly the case here. Topped with a nice glass of house wine, what more could you ask for. Definitely try this restaurant!!

“Hidden gem..savo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Having read great reviews, we booked for dinner at Savo and it's a find. Down below in Atrani, (just before u go through the tunnel to Amalfi from Marmorata)through the arch is a fairly new restaurant of 6 months, a complete family affair...Gerald's Savo,is the masterful chef, front of house service is by the lovely wife who was very proud of their 2sons, one in the kitchen in charge of the beautiful looking desserts, and one at the front with her. The house white wine was a nice surprise, far more what you would expect a fine dining place would consider quaffable compared to other house wines that are being sold and served in the area. The service was great, charming and the offering of beautifully fried anchovies served with house made bread was perfect. Our primi piatti were gnocchi with a creamy tomato sauce and pasta with a pesto made of herbs , walnuts from the area and anchovies, all great. The mains were fish in water, vanilla and bourbon & lemon...subtle and the flavours were clean to accompany the fresh fish but we loved the grilled fish with olive oil, garlic and mint...with a side order of grilled vegetables that held their bite and form! The dessert we ordered was ricotta and pear slice? Which was beautifully presented ad not too sickly sweet , the vanilla ice cream tasted and looked homemade. All impressive...downsides? Got bitten by a couple of hungry mossies...but I didn't pay for those. Wish we had a local that showed as much respect and love to their craft...

“Superbe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

I am french but I have been going on holiday in Italy almost every year for the last 20 years: from north to south. By now I think I know Italian cuisine very well, from star michelin restaurants in the north to familial cooking (friends cooking too) in the South but this is the first time that I felt that I was eating "poesy" in a plate and could fully appreciate the philosophy of the chef. It is literally an ode to fresh products. Most dishes are "classics" from Italian cuisine but they are so delicate and so well executed that I rediscovered them with astonishment. The chef uses the freshest products and cook them in the best way possible to highlight their taste. The dishes are simple, beautiful and extremely tasty. The desserts are very interesting. One I had in particular was just amazing in fact. The service is done by the wife of the chef (who is adorable) and her son. Both of them are proud of the dishes that they serve and they truly have all right to be indeed. It is nice (and rare) to see! This was an amazing experience and I am definitely looking forward to going back to Atrani to taste this divine cuisine!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

We booked this restaurant for my birthday after reading the trip advisor reviews. A hidden gem in a beautiful square in atrani. A delightful little restaurant with a great service. The food was one of the best Italian meals I have had, beautiful local produce cooked to perfection! I had the gnocchi to start & beef liver for main..my wife had seafood linguine & chicken breast. All the dishes had amazing flavours & little touches which showed the passion & skills of the chef. The dishes were reasonably priced.
I would most certainly go back & highly recommend this place if you love food.
