When traveling to Vietri, I was not prepared for what I was in store for. I had gone to visit my cousins. My father's side of the family is from Vietri, and this was the first time I was meeting my Italian family. I had been to other areas of the Amalfi Coast. Vietri is great! It is not as crowded with tourists, has a small town feel, has great sandy beaches unlike most of the rocky coast, and is the Italian capital of ceramics. I purchased many ceramics and most shops will bargain with you especially if you purchase a large amount. They have an outdoor concert are, which is covered with ceramic tiles and has a view of the ocean. I believe they do a summer opera series there. I may be a little biased in recommending the restaurant RistoPub Sud Est. It is owned by a few cousins of mine, but I can honestly say that it has some of the best food I've ever eaten. I am trying to convince my cousins to advertise here. They are on facebook. On a Wednesday night, this place was packed. Their mother makes many of the food and liqueur served here. Her limoncello, and eggplant parmigiana is outstanding! If you want authentic food from a family home, eat here!
