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!
