The food was terrible and way way too expensive for the quality. The waiter was pushy and kept asking me and my friends name and where we were staying. He had to know exactly which hotel we were staying. After we told him he asked if we would like to come to the restaurant when they are closed and have... More

My friend and I had dinner here on our first evening in Maiori. The starters and mains were good and dessert locally sourced. The wine was okay too. The staff were a little too friemdly as they had asked where we were staying, to whic we'd answered vaguely, 'over there' for them to respond with our exact hotel name -... More

We ate twice here, once for lunch where we had very good sized pizzas. Staff at lunch could have been a bit more attentive. We then had an evening meal, rather pricey compared to other places in Maori, but well presented. Staff this time were better considering it was very busy. Good location just across the road from the sea.

Seems like there are mixed reviews of this place and I wonder if the time of year makes a difference. In October it was quiet and staff and service very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious and the seafront view beautiful as there was no one to obscure our view of the sea. Will come again.

Staff were friendly enough, we went for a pizza lunch. Pizzas were big but not very exciting, and overpriced (at around 8 euros each, compared to better quality and same size pizzarias just around the corner - charging around 4 euros for better pizza!).

The service here is slow, when we visited it was busy but there was a long wait between our starters and main course - we'd only ordered a Pizza!. My starter of a green salad came with a little oil drizzeld on - all there was was shredded iceberg lettuce, no rocket or other leaves and no seasoning either! The... More

This place is a little better than Mammoto next door, in particular the pizza - thin crust and well prepared. Very good appetizers and a good place for lunch or dinner. The menu is average for Amalfi coast.

We ate here twice and also had a pizza to go. Yes, it is busy and yes you may have to wait for your freshly cooked authentic food but what's the big deal when you are on holiday or having a leisurely meal in a perfect location? The fact that the restaurant is very busy and locals are eating the... More
