We had an excellent lunch here, feasting on seafood and despite really wanting to find somewhere outside we sat in the conservatory area with the windows wide open with views across the hills of the back of Amalfi, the service was quick and efficient and other diners although few and far between all looked to be eating superb dishes, we had Pasta with clams & mussels which was just delicious and plenty for a lunchtime. With drinks including wine and water our bill for two came to 27 Euros, much cheaper than in Amalfi and just as good. Pogerola has little happening other than the fabulous views down to the sea (which you can't see from this restaurant) we had last been some 27 years ago so it was a bit of trip down memory lane, I am not sure we go back but if we did and it was lunchtime I would definitely head back here.
They were serving a hiking group as we left and they all seemed very happy and were being well looked after.

Fresh fish, in all'acqua pazza. The veal steak, wine, pizza all also good. Since it is out of Amalfi it is much more affordable and less touristy with a beautiful view overlooking the mountains and city.

we came here three times when we were on holiday in Amalfi, ver friendly people, u feel directly at home, and excellent food for a correct price! We even had the chance to buy excellent Olive oil, still enjoying it every day,
So i would recommend it to everyone. And, they even come and pick u up for free if u would be in Amalfi...
Hoping to go there as quickly as possible

I dont understand the reviews. I read about this restaurant, how excelent it is, and came to eat here. I was very desepointed. The food was averege minus. We had the antipasti that was ok, seafood spagetti - averege, mixed fish - ok minus, sword fish - very poor. The desert was not eatable - chokolad cake that was baked i think last week - dry and hard. I dont understand how you can serve a cack like this, even in an averge restaurant !

Have been here a few times and it's always wonderful. Sit in the main room not downstairs. Different atmosphere.
