Went there every day of our stay. We tried some OTHER restaurants and they all had the same mediocre food with higher prices and not much service.
This wonderfull couple (carmella and ralphael) consistently delivered the opposite. A genuinely friendly home town feel that's hard to find in any of the tourist areas.
ALL the food is very fresh. They make fresh doe, pasta by hand everyday. Only baked, never fried. (Healthy) the chicken is amazing local organic.
The place is small and setup for takeout. (Saves a lot of money) but I hope they do start a restaurant there soon. It would be refreshing to have genuine passionate foodies and personality.
Also terrific recommendations of local places. I can truly say made our trip better. Caio!

Simply fabulous thin crust pizza -- just like its meant to be. Lived up to ll the expectations. Easy to find -- just continue walking up the main road from the piazza duomo and you can't miss it on the right hand side.

While seating is tight and not terribly comfortable inside (the place is so small that the pizza oven dominates the room), there's no problem taking the wonderful food outside and finding a place to sit along the road. Just don't stick your feet out too far.

Ciao.

We stumbled upon this small pizza shop (that does not look that exciting from the outside) and decided to give it a try. We had a couple of their stuffed breads (like open faced calzones), and they were delicious. We especially liked the one with greens, olives, mozzerella, and capers. It was full of locals, and the staff were very friendly. We went back again after dinner to grab more for our trip the next day. We highly recommend this for a quick lunch or dinner (for 2 items, the bill came to under 5 euros --- enough for 2 of us for lunch!). We almost felt guilty, but we ate here for three of our meals when we stayed in Amalfi for just a couple of days. The made-in-front-of-you pizzas are also lovely!

This little gem is hidden in a modest looking shop, but the pizza it makes is so good! They literally can make anything you like, both on and off the menu, right in front of your eyes. Their pizza oven transforms the dough and toppings into a delicious meal. My friend and I got a large pizza and two soft drinks for approximately 10 Euros. The couple that runs this place is so attentive and nice! A very good budget option in a sea of expensive tourist traps!

Found this little pizzeria among many of the tourist traps in beautiful Amalfi. The couple that served us are ( I believe) husband and wife and make a great team. Very welcoming without any fuss. We sat inside and waited for our pizza to be made. I had the most wonderful Margarita and DH had a delicious Calzone. Such excellent value for authentic and fresh food. We hope to return one day !
