“Our Mistake”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2010

Dinner here on Sept 6 prior to concert at Villa Rufolo. Service and food quality not up to par with other, less-raved-about Amalfi Coast restaurants. Campy atmosphere. We went for the food - we were disappointed. Had far better meals at far less popular restaurants. Unfortunately, we chose it for our anniversary dinner...wish we'd chosen elsewhere.

“Exceeded our expectations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2010

Having read the trip advisor reviews Cumpa'Cosimo was a must on our list of places to eat. We arrived for lunch and were promptly seated and treated like royalty. Hoping to see Netta we were quickly made aware from the laughter in the other dining room that she must be present. What a delightful person, eager to please each guest! We ordered the sampler plate of pasta and would do the same all over again and highly recommend it for everyone. Our 10 day trip included Rome, Florence, Venice and Sorrento and although we enjoyed our food in each of these places Cumpa'Cosimo still gets our vote as favorite meal of entire trip. Don't miss it! Excellent price for the quality and quantity of food and we too received the offer of tiramisu on the house. A fun and happy experience! The ride to Ravello was beautiful. We took the city bus from Amalfi and were there in 30 minutes. Make the trip...you'll be glad you did!

“If you like actors taking your order”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2010

Came here after long flight from U.S. Read the reviews on TripAdvisor, really wanted to like it. There was a large, loud and very drunk table of Americans in the restaurant. Mama, who is there to be "mama", and little else, paid all of her attention to them. We were ignored for the first 15 minutes. Finally Mama makes it to us; we order a mixed salad and a pasta dish. The salad was 6 euros, the pasta dish 12. We also ordered a bottle of water. 2 euros. 20 euros total. We ate, the service was terrible, we had to flag the waiter and beg for cheese. We wanted our bill, we seriously waited for 30 minutes...trying to flag the waiter or Mama. Finally, waiter comes and says HE can't do it, only Mama. Finally she comes, barks "30 Euro" at us, pushed her lemon cake on us, (we didn't want), and says she doesn't want a credit card. I told her it was all I had. She rolls her eyes, finds another man, who comes and takes our card. So....Mama is not giving receipts....why? She wants all cash....why? I can figure it out. Mama isn't 'nice' she is an actress playing the part for stupid tourists. Go to a restaurant with a view. We had MUCH better food, with wine, and MUCH better service, for less money, elsewhere in Ravello.

“A truly authentic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2010

We drove through from Positano just to have lunch here and it is an amazing experience. The staff and service is excellent - very friendly.The little Nonna walks around checking everything is fine and making sure you are always happy with the food.The food is absolutely out of this world - we had the mixed pasta platter as a starter so you can taste a little of everything. We never ate the crepe with ham and cheese so she brought us a new plate with ghnocci so we didnt leave hungry! We never ordered dessert as we were too full at that stage but a minute later, they bring a piece of cake to the table on the house! The place is busy so you must make a reservation before going through.

“Great food at a great price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2010

We really enjoyed the food here - very tasty and far cheaper than other places. Bruchetta was excellent (and free), pasta very good. The atmosphere was fun too. We paid 70euros for lunch for 4 people. They give us a free sample of 3 puds, which was great.
