Superb quality of food, atmosphere, and silence are the main things of this place. Waiter speaks a very fluent english. The wine list is superb. Tryed "Furore" of Marisa Cuomo; is like drinking the honey. Try the spaghetti whit clams, confi tomatoes, herbal crutons and green beans sauce. A little bit expensive but for a michelin star, this price is... More

Staying in Cetara we were amazed to find a Michelin starred restaurant so close by. The welcome was warm, and we were escorted to our table by a very charming man - who turned out to be the owner. Really nice to be in a family run business - now in its third generation. The views from the table were... More

Arrived at the restaurant and were greeted warmly by the owner and hostess. We followed the hostess down through beautiful landscaped grounds to an enclosed room overlooking the ocean and Maiori. The room and atmosphere are magical. The service was spectacular. The food was beautifully plated, and perfectly cooked as well as delicious. Wonderful wines to compliment each course. An... More

This restaurant had been recommended by our day tour guide in Rome and chef at our country club in Buffalo, NY. It exceeded expectations. Great food, wine list, service, and ambience. A bit out of the way (about $25 Euros each way by taxi from Maiori [busses were full and refused to pick us up]) but worth the trip. Plan... More

We stopped by out of pure luck (they had parking on a busy Saturday), but what an experience. We were welcomed in, and even if clearly 'touristic' outfitted with shorts and sandals, we never felt out of place for our lunch in this amazing restaurant. The views are fantastic, the staff professional and friendly and the food is on a... More
