“Perbacco!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Enjoyed 2 of the most incredible meals of an Amalfi vacation here, and cannot recommend this place highly enough. Lucia and Gino run a wonderfully delicious and hospitable establishment - they sent cars to pick us up from our hotel and I could tell our concierge was pleased we were visiting this place. My fiancee and I had a wonderful lunch on their terrace where you can practically eat the mountain view - local fish, seafood salad, ricotta cheesecake with fig.

We loved it so much we brought the rest of the family the next night for dinner and the sequel did not disappoint. Scialatelli, fish, pizza, foccaccia, all outstanding. Plus homemade limoncello and the hosts sent us off with a few lemons from their garden. An unforgettable pair of meals that live on in my mind's stomach - if only there were direct flights from NYC to Pogerola! Grazie Lucia e Gino per un'esperienza indimenticabile!

“Very good pastas, an excellent meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Excellent meal, with great hand made pastas. The pasta al ragu were incredible! the seafood is really fresh and tasty. The vino della cas (the home wine) was good also. The waitress was very nice and welcomed us with delicious crostinis. Great place!

“not as good as expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

went there (rather drove up from Amalfi a few extra kms) after reading good reviews here. Now I am sure those were written by themselves or very good friends or the restaurant. I ordered a pizza, which turned out to be ... just average. Too much dough for a fine italian pizza. No special taste, no wow effect, just average. Sorry, this quality I cna get at any beach restaurnat. The prices are good though, but you need to add the "italian" coperto 2 EUR to get to the final amount for your lunch/dinner. I would not go there again. Unless very hungry...

A perfect day for us is to take the bus up to Pogerola for lunch in this delightful restaurant then take one of the three walks back to Amalfi. The food is delicious and Gino, Lucia and their family are lovely. Looking forward to Easter next year.
