This restaurant is a must when in Amalfi! Andrea the host and waiter was very welcoming and quite a character as he was singing and saying "Mama Mia" as it became busier. The food was delicious - local grilled fish, mozzarella, local lemon desert and lemoncello. Andrea even took time to chat with us even although it was very busy. Andrea certainly makes the atmosphere warm and welcoming for tourists and his brother complements this by preparing all the delicious food. A great team of brothers! The only regret was that we could not go for a second night....

We were in Amalfi in September 2013 and would have never discovered this lovely restaurant had it not been for the charming gentleman/owner who greeted us as we were passing by. After chatting with him for a bit, we were convinced. My husband had the seafood pizza, which was excellent. They were not cheap on the ingredients, which were fresh and delicious (huge mussels and shrimp). My plate of pasta was also delightful. You can really see and taste the authenticity in their ingredients. Our experience was so pleasant that we returned the following evening.

We especially appreciated the great service at Masaniello, the staff made us feel like family. It's truly the best restaurant in Amalfi.

After a week in Italy we had the opportunity to try all sorts of pizza and pastas from Rome to Amalfi and our last meal was on La Taverna di Masaniello - we all had pasta once again we all cleared the plate. The kids ate it all and this was the first time in 7 days. The Gnochi was good but my husband's pasta with mozzarela and albergines was unbeatable... they only had two choices of pudding that night (it was mid Feb after all) but neither tempted us. If you are after a friendly and welcoming place then this is very good. Its definitely more of a informal place to eat and therefore we felt comfortable attending with two children (they will also make half portions for the kids, adapt the main course to suit a child and were happy to try to understand my Italian too). Our only remark was the TV that they had on which we really do not like but this is not uncommon in some more relaxed Italian restaurants.

in Amalfi on a chilly winter's day! we happened across the tiny little restaurant in a small piazza just off the waterfront. and an hour later we had eaten on of the best meals we've had in italy!!
i had the grilled calamari that the chef cooked on special request as i'm a calamari addict..A with not a word of a lie, this was one of the best - a plate of small tender grilled calamari drizzled with olive oil and a few herbs... simple and beautiful.
the chef suggested we try the grilled sea bass, freshest and best in Amalfi he said... and again we weren't disappointed... the fish was so succulent and creamy it was a taste sensation. again just simply grilled with a little olive oil to finish... it was a masterpiece!
the restaurant itself was empty when we arrived but soon filled with mainly locals enjoying a sunday feast... the mixed seafood plates that passed our table looked phenomenal!
both the chef and the waiter were really friendly and obviously loved producing the food that came from the tiny kitchen.
all in all this was a great restaurant, one of the best non-snobby ones we've been to in a month in italy, and topped off a great day in amalfi - highly recommend it!
