“Dreamy pastries in the beautiful Piazza Duomo Amalfi”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Our friends who have been coming to Amalfi for years recommend this place. A dream - everything you want a cafe to be in Italy. Chairs and little tables in the busy pedestrian piazza. Sit outside and enjoy people watching. The cakes are suprime, mine was filled with cream and crispy - heaven. Coffee is excellent too. Worth going to Amalfi just for this.

“Do as Italians do, stand at the bar and enjoy!”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We have been here twice during our stay in Amalfi: the first time we sat in one of the internal rooms and were served great sfogliatelle with cappuccino by professional waiters. The day after we decided to stand at the bar and enjoyed the same quality food and drinks for less than half the cost (6.20 euros vs 17 euros)! Italians do it better ;-)

Gentile signora,
grazie della gratificante recensione.
Siamo felici del fatto che abbiate apprezzato la qualità dei nostri prodotti così come la professionalità del nostro servizio. In merito all'osservazione sulla differenza di prezzi, ovviamente il servizio ai tavoli per le caratteristiche particolari dello stesso unitamente a quelle della location incide tangibilmente sul prezzo,altresì come da voi giustamente riportato offriamo la stessa qualità e le medesime attenzioni anche ai visitatori che intendono consumare al banco.
Cordiali saluti

“Chaotic but well worth the wait”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Stepped into this pastry shop on the recommendation of our Amalfi Cruise captain Savatorre. We went in and were overwhelmed with the selection of cakes and pastries. The lady behind the counter did her best to explain the different desserts even though the place was extremely busy. Selected a cream horn filled with Chantilly cream and the meringue (They were out of canoli, how that happens in Italy is a mystery). Both were amazing and worth well the extra calories. Make sure you give it a try if you're in Amalfi.
