“Best meal!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Our excellent guide, Salvatore Jr, recommended this restaurant during our stop at Amalfi. This was simply the best decision we made all trip and easily one of the best Italian meals we've ever had! We ordered some seafood and a variety of pastas which were all amazing and fresh. The owner of the restaurant was a fantastic host; he provided great recommendations and offered us some home grown strawberries and home brewed alcohol to try. He also has an amazing collection of ceramic/tile art on the walls!

“Local delicious dinner”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Local spot with friendly service. Delicious dinner of pizza, homemade pasta and fresh grilled fish. Very reasonable and delicious. It was recommended by two different residents of Amalfi so it was not touristy, just the perfect dinner after a wonderful day in town.

“Andrea and His Brother Created a Masterpiece”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We were referred here by a local and we were so happy that he did! When we arrived for lunch, we were the only ones in the restaurant and had the pleasure of chatting with Andrea - what a character! He was training a new server that day and the care that he took with her was just very nice to watch. Andrea is the face of the restaurant and while his brother turns out delicious meals from the kitchen. We had caprese salad, minestrone, pasta with ham - all outstanding. For dessert, Andrea suggested lemon cake which is made by a baker who prepares it in their kitchen early each morning. It was to die for! By the time we left, the restaurant was full and Andrea was running all over the place saying 'Mama Mia' and making sure everybody was happy. The informal atmosphere and fantastic food made this one of the most pleasurable meals we had on our 2-week trip to Italy -

“Andrea is Awesome!”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

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....

“Amalfi's hidden gem!”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

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.
