I returned to this restaurant on January 4th. I had a great lunch, really impressive. They have a delicious pumpkin cream. I liked a lot the mixed pasta. The fried fish was also excellent. The place was very well heated (the waiter increased the power of the heater when he noticed that we were not fully comfortable). This is a... More

limited menu that most of times I appreciate when the ingredients are quite simple. But the food is manipulated, not simple receipts. In this way the guest can't taste the good ingredients on this marvelous land

This place is a hidden gem! Def worth the walk back into the city and away from the water. The first day we went to the 2 most recommended spots Lido and Smeraldo and had horrible experiences with service and food. Thankfully my wife found this spot and restored my faith in Amalfi. My wife ordered an Italian native fish,... More

We stopped in Amalfi because it was the city with the easiest parking situation in the coast but we were amazed by the food we found at Buonvicino.. Good variety , excellent locatoin and kind sevice. I would return and order the same food all over again... Even the quality of the olive oil caught my attention.

Took us a little while to find the place but once we did the terrace was beautiful. Dinner was great, large portions and the owner even gave us a little piano concerto during dinner from inside! Recommend the fried seafood plate and the carbonara! The one recommendation was perfect and from the region.

If you go to Amalfi, this is the place to have Lunch or dinner. Great food, fresh pasta, good wines and a waiter that is also able to sing and make the whole lace sing with him. Good wines that are very fair priced. We will defenitely go there the next time we are in Amalfi. It is a bit... More

Our wonderful tour guide (Claudia Ruocco from Costa Diva Tours) suggested two restaurants for us to try on our first night in Amalfi. We decided on Taverna Buonvicino since it was closest to our hotel. Thank goodness we had GPS because we had trouble finding it in the narrow passageways and winding streets. When we finally found the restaurant, we... More

Only a few steps away from the cathedral, hidden in the alleyways of Amalfi in one of the most ancient and peaceful squares of the town, is the Taverna Buonvicino. In the authentic tradition of the Amalfi Coast, our guests will enjoy an a la carte menu and a food and wine tasting menu, strictly serving only products in season, to give them a taste of the places and culture of our territory. Our food is not ready made, but the shoert wait respects the sincerity of preparation and cooking times, far from today's much and ready's culture. For those who want to discover the Hidden Amalfi we suggest a journey that starts at the table and leads towards the colours and tastes of our territory where you can discover new places of belonging. Finally, a hidden corner to propose to those guests of ours who love small surprises. We look forward to seeing you here in this hidden corner because 'The true taste of Amalfi is hidden in the alleyways'
