Beautifully positioned in a quiet square, we ate here twice. Staff ate attentive, shrimp risotto is outstanding. Ordered the steak on a second visit, despite having asked for it as medium, it was rare even having returned it for a second cooking. But the staff are so obliging I think this was a glitch on the night.

This is a nice outdoor restaurant with a terrific, very honest owner, Giuliana L'Abside. The Lasagne Bolognese was very good the mixed seafood pasta was good, but I'd pass for more of a red sauce. Ask Giuliana what is good and she will tell you. That is worth a lot!! The primativo wine was a deal for 20 Euro. Recommended.

We went to this place on the recommendation of our hotel and had the best meal we've had on our italy trip. It's not on the main street so it wouldn't be easy to find it, but we are very happy we followed the recommendation. Everything including wine, starters, main dishes and desserts were just perfect. The staff is very... More

Our appetizer - The fried seafood which was a basket of mussels and clams were really really fresh, and seasoned to perfection. Eggplant parmigiana was also a hit. Our mains, a mixture of pastas, risottos, and meats were all good. The must try is the seafood pasta with Herbed pasta noodles, lots of fresh mussels, squid, clams and prawns. The... More

Restaurant with both inside and outdoor seating on a pleasant square just off the main Amalfi square. Always seemed to be busy every night we passed by. We got a table without booking but it looked as if this maybe needed at busier times. Good service and English spoken. Food pretty decent - we had standard choices of Ragu and... More
