Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I made a reservation on line many weeks before our scheduled time in Amalfi. My husband and I had dinner reservations for this Michelin place on 9/13/2023 at 8:00 pm. This was an easy walk from our hotel in Amalfi. The restaurant is located in...the Hotel Residence which is right at the waterfront area. In my reservation I had requested a railing table. When we arrived we were immediately seated at a lovely railing table that had awesome views of the waterfront. Moderately busy when we arrived but as the night wore on it got busier. Drinks were first on our minds. My husband Richard has an Old Fashion and I picked the drink of the day which was?? I forgot to write it down but I do remember it was very good. It's a set menu for dinner and all parties at the table are required to have the same. There were several options but we decided on the 4 course tasting menu. First we're brought a variety of breads. Throughout dinner we also get many chef's small bites which were wonderful. The 4 course tasting menu consisted of grilled cod fish with Asetra caviar/citrus gel/carrot & green curry sauce, lemon grass risotto/scallops with "Amaro Roger"/juniper/tarragon/Amalfi lemon/katsuobushi, yellow tail tuna/puffed cereals/eggplant/tamarind sauce. For dessert we had a choice. I went for the gianduja smoked chocolate/honey/rosemary/passion fruit/pollen and Richard got the selection of local cheeses. You could also add a wine pairing of 4 to the meal for extra cost. Since my husband is not a wine drinker we passed on that option. The food was amazing and so beautifully plated. Throughout the evening we received exemplary service. Our server told us about everything he brought to the table and at times even told us the chef's preferred order in which to eat the items. Between the 4 courses and all the complimentary chef's small bites we did not leave feeling hungry! We had a fantastic time. Our evening was one to remember. Cost 289.50€/$311.79. Well worth the cost for the fabulous food, outstanding service, and the atmosphere.More

Had an AMAZING lunch here! Came here for lunch Saturday while visiting Amalfi for the day—the view from the restaurant is beautiful, overlooking the water. Service was great! Food was delicious! Started off with the Spaghetti “Cacio e pepe” clams & lemon and the Rigatone...alla Bolognese—both prepared perfectly al dente and well flavored. The Sea Bass was good. The Milanese cutlet with rocket and cherry tomatoes was excellent, highly recommend! Well deserved Michelin star restaurant!More

We chose the 8 course tasting menu option with wine pairing. From the Amuse Bouche to the final dessert ( Italians have it right, “ pre-dessert, then dessert…. ; ). “ it was simply amazing. Walking into the restaurant you get a view of the...kitchen and the chefs at work, even that was impressive, big beautiful and white ( we had peeked into other kitchens by this point and this one is large). The Sommelier was charming and of course knowledgeable, he was able to highlight the wine before tasting, provide information re: the area and winery it came from and met us at our knowledge level. The food courses were innovative, tasty tasty tasty and despite 8 courses plus Amuse Bouche it was always the right amount. A must attend restaurant when in the area.More

Easily one of the best lunches we had in our vacation trip in Italy! We had lunch in September 2023 when visiting Amalfi and I must say this restaurant is really very nice at a 360 level: food was great from the fresh bread in...the couvert to the starters, main courses and dessert! The staff was very friendly and the restaurant looks very upscale. Prices are in line with other options, which makes it a really good deal, good bang for the buck!More

Awful experience... the food was bad and so was the service. And to have to hear from them they couldn't provide a better service because of 2 tables of 5 guests they had was a slap on the face! What a joke!

What a truly amazing experience. We opted for the 4 course tasting menu with the wine pairing. The meal was amazing from start to finish. There were so many extras that I couldn’t have eaten anymore. The wine pairing complimented each dish perfectly. The staff...were absolutely outstanding. Would go back in a flash.More

We were lucky enough to get a last minute cancellation to this wonderful restaurant. The Terrace is beautiful with tables well spaced for an intimate dining experience. We chose the 8 course tasting menu (which was a little too much for me but my husband...managed it all!) The Amuse Bouche were simply fantastic and the rest of the meal didn’t disappoint! The best part was the inspired wine pairing which was served by one of the owners of the restaurant (apologies I didn’t get your name but you were so friendly and informative). We are fortunate to sample lots of tasting menus in lovely restaurants and my husband says this was simply the best wine pairing he has ever had! Don’t miss out but booking is essential. It’s so worth itMore

We did the 6 course tasting menu for the last night of our honeymoon and what a treat it was. The food and drinks were out of this world. We had did other tasting menus in a few spots on our trip in Positano and...Sorrento and were left disappointed in the quality of the food, especially when you’re paying up to 400-500 euro!! You should be getting nothing but the best. Sensi knocked them out of the park. You get what you pay for here. We also loved the atmosphere, the staff were so friendly and welcoming, in comparison to some other Michelin restaurants we’ve been too, where everyones a little too stiff and proper! Highly recommend for a special night, experiencing some incredible food in a fabulous settingMore

It really depends on whether you plan to have a bottle of wine (or drinks) and how many courses you order. I believe our meal was around $200 Euro.
