“They made chef's out of us”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

While on the amalfi coast my wife and I decided we wanted to take private cooking lessons. We contacted the concierge at the hotel this restaurant is in, and they made the arrangements for us. We made a three course meal then ate what we cook. Wow. Thanks to the staff for everything.

“breathtaking views and delicious seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We had a table overlooking the sea on the lower patio of this restaurant. (Many steps to go down or there's an elevator.) Despite the descent we were still high up above the glittering waters below with an incredible view of the Amalfi coastline. Their steamed mussels and clams appetizer was as fresh as can be, simply but deliciously prepared still in their shells and sitting in their own juice with an addition of butter and light garlic and other spicing. Fantastic. Shared the local fish catch of the day - taken off the bones at our table side - hot but not overcooked at all. Sides of artichokes and fresh local veggies. A bottle of Costa d'Amalfi Per Eva 2010 (blend of falanghina, pepella & ginestra grapes). All magical.

“Gorgeous views, friendly staff, good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012 via mobile

Stopped in for lunch on the way back from Ravello. Views are unequalled. Food was good. Staff was happy for our sons to take beer glasses home.

“Amazing restaurant and a must do on Amalfi Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We ate here a number of nights and we had some of the very best food in all of Italy! The squid soup and pastas were absolutely amazing. Highly recommend you pick the tasting menu. If you ask nicely, I'm sure they can substitute. They have beautiful outdoor seating. The inside is nice too!
