“The best restaurant in Praiano!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Excellent restaurant! You have to try it! Pizza, soups, sea food - everything is so fresh and prices are very reasonable. Be careful with the portions, as they are really huge!! You won't regret for sure :)

“The best food on Amalfi Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

This place does not look attractive. Actually it looks unattractive. But the food, it's taste, quality of ingredients, presentation, smell and portions make you feel like nowhere else. I fully reccomend. It's also great value for money you spend. Restaurant provides private parking (not that obvious yet very handy in this area). Family run business, great service, positive energy! PS. Be careful, they serve huuuge portions!!

Delicious, large portions,and well priced. We went back a few times. We tried the seafood pizza, the mixed grilled fish platter, mussels and various pastas. Everything was excellent.

“Hearty Italian Fare with a View!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We visited this place twice while we were staying in Praiano, and it's a real gem. Very reasonable prices, a terrace with lovely views to the sea (and in some places even a great view of Positano) and delicious Italian fare as it should be. Both times I couldn't go past the modestly named 'pasta with mussels' - a simple but really delicious meal of linguine with plenty of juicy mussels served with cherry tomatoes, oil and herbs. My husband made it through the biggest calzone of his life (marinara with pasta and a huge crust stuffed with ricotta - must be seen to be believed!) and we also enjoyed what they called on the menu a 'focaccia', which was actually a pizza base cooked with oil and herbs which was totally yummy and addictive. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place - we really enjoyed our meals here!

“450 Steps Up & Worth It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

We were staying in the Tower below the main square - and it is approximately 450 steps from the tower up to town & to this restaurant!! No one said it but we were all thinking "hope it was worth the climb!" The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming! We were all in the mood for a pizza sharing fest, but then what's a meal without some French fries! Ha! They had wide variety of pizzas and we had everything from margerita to sausage & mushroom to Hawaiian (pineapple & ham) - some of the best pizza we've had and some excellent French fries!! The even let my sister hold a squid and take her picture with it!!
