We were recommended Hosteria il Pino from the owner of the hotel we stayed at in Praiano. He had previously recommended other restaurants that were really good, so we were quite sure the recommendation would be good too.

The restaurant was hidden down a flight of stairs from the main road and when we arrived we were served a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and a mini bruschetta, with a table viewing the back garden. Already the service seemed really good - especially since we received this unexpected treat.

We ordered assorted sea shells to share for a starter, which tasted very fresh. For the main meal we ordered grilled fish (mixture of various fish with salad - tasted delicous) and a "crazy water style" fish of the day. The owner presented all the fish that was fresh from that day, and for the "fish of the day" course, we were able to choose the fish we wanted. There were different fish in all shapes and sizes.

As a bonus, we discovered that the olive oil was homemade by the owner (every single olive had been hand picked!) and the wine was made in the vineyard in the back garden of the restaurant.

All in all, our experience at Hosteria il Pino was amazing and beyond expectations. Definitely a recommendation!

Great location and if you are staying in Praiano Il Pino picks you up.
The starters, stuffed zuccini flowers and mixed grilled shellfish were both very good. The risotto with shrimps was average but the grilled seabream off the bone was first class.
The service was both efficient and friendly.


If you sit in the front an AC envelops a romantic scenic view in a rather aggressive noice.

Ate here on our last night in Praiano and while it is more expensive than others in the town, it is very much a quality restaurant experience.

Staff were attentive, friendly and had a bit of fun. The food was delicious - the most generous portioned and tasty seafood pasta of many that I had during our stay on the Amalfi Coast. Hubbie had the half lobster which was delicious. Food was elegantly presented and there were little extras like bruschetta to complement the meal.

Would highly recommend and definitely go back on future visits.

We visited Hosteria il Pino on October 6th. We had some very good things about it. Our server was wonderful. She was funny yet efficient. We ordered the wine that the owner makes himself. Was not impressed for 25 euros. For dinner I ordered the Risotto ( the signature dish of the restaurant and my boyfriend ordered the salt encrusted fish. The risotto was too lemony and way too heavy. The fish was full of bones. For 39 euros you think they would do a better job of de-boning it. Would not return.

We were recommended Il Pino via the proprietor of our apartment in Praiano. It was an excellent recommendation and a truly great meal. The food was fresh and the atmosphere was great. Prices were reasonable as well.

Don't miss the Lemon Rissoto - a unique dish that was amazing!
