“Two great dishes. Excellent service. Reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Popped in for lunch during my family's stopover in Amalfi.
Chose the place on the basis of the menu outside.
Was not disappointed.
All the food was between good to excellent.
Two dishes were absolutely magnificent:
1) the "amalfi anchovies" starter (fried double-anchovies with cheese and basil); and
2) the pasta with swordfish and prawns.

All of us loved both dishes (there was a fight about the pasta dish sauce. It was so good).

All in all - a wonderful lunch, with very friendly service, and for a reasonable price (which in Amalfi isn't something to take lightly). Highly recommended.

“Just off the beaten path”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by our Amalfi Boat Tour captain from Positano. He said for authentic Italian food from the region he could recommend no better restaurant in the town. He wasn't wrong, the food was authentic, simple and flavorful. The service, quality, staff and unbeatable prices make this place a standout. As mentioned in previous posts it's located just off the main square near the duomo but up an alley which makes it less touristy than the restaurant next door. Had the spaghetti bolognaise and the spaghetti aglio olio con pepperoncino and they were both outstanding in the taste and simplicity. if you're looking for a great meal at a reasonable price this place has it all. Well worth the stop if you're unsure of where to eat in Amalfi,

Four of us went there one night, the setting is fine, near the cathedral but the food was average, we had worse and we had better in Amalfi.

“A pleasant place for a good lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We arrived in Amalfi as a spot to do a little sightseeing before hiking to the mountain towns. Lunch time 'snuck up' on us and we thought we would try this restaurant next to the Cathedral. The gentleman there was very nice, escorted us to our table in the alleyway as we wanted to eat outside on a beautiful day. We did not want a heavy meal before hiking so we split a pizza, and a mezzo litro or red wine. Food was good and service was good.
